  • Efficient batch control

    Efficient batch control can be both an art and science, so act accordingly for best results, and always remember "it's survival of the fittest" out there.

  • How to reduce caking problems

    This web-exclusive article from Diamondback Technology identifies the most common caking mechanisms and how to solve the problem through reduction.

  • Nanotechnology readies for a wastewater role

    The federal government strongly backs development of nanotechnology, seeking to ensure that the United States leads the way in developing and commercializing appropriate applications.

  • Software Drives OEM Toward Efficiency and Energy Savings

    ABB designed software for its ACS800 drive so Curtis-Toledo could improve the operation of its rotary-screw compressors. The customized software can control the system pressure, air delivery, oil temperature and duty cycle directly from the drive.

  • Avoid confusion with air injection for fine powders

    Fine powders often need air injection to increase flow rates to an acceptable level. With entrained or injected air, powders flow like water, but when deaerated, the extremely low flow rate may be confused with a hang-up or arching condition.

  • Chemical industry and academia must move closer

    The 7th World Congress of Chemical Engineering is nearly upon us, and "industry people" need to have a larger presence at these types of meetings, says Editor in Chief Mark Rosenzweig.
