In Part 5 of this series on distillation control and optimization, we find that adding a side-stream component to your process gives an additional degree of freedom, but makes it even more essential to not mismatch the variables.
For the first time at the Chem Show, a two-day workshop and symposium titled Nano 101 Nanomaterials Processing will provide an overview of the nanomaterials industry and market, synthesis and processing issues, safe handling and use of nanostructured materials and case studies on engineered nanoparticulate material systems.
Results of the 2007 Readers Choice Awards are in and have been tabulated to determine the top technology providers in 47 categories, according to our readers. Find out which vendors rate highest with your peers.
Many companies decide not to build up certain capabilities in-house mainly because they dont have sufficient regular demand for them. Gamma scanning of distillation columns is a case in point, but on-site scanning specialists may be the wave of the future.
Control's Béla Lipták continues his series on control of distillation processes, this time focusing on managing reboiler flow, temperature, feed rate, loading and reflux for economy, stability and safety.
Sound purchasing decisions depend upon properly soliticiting and evaluating proposals from various vendors. This article will help you assemble a request for a proposal that should lead to responses that meet your needs and that you can compare.
