  • Stripper Bares All

    Analysis reveals how operating practices compounded design mistakes

    Andrew Sloley, Contributing Editor
  • Self-Regulating Reactors Promise Pluses

    Research program aims to develop nanostructures that respond to varying conditions within a reactor by changing their size, shape or structure.

  • Achieve Good Packed Tower Efficiency

    Proper design of liquid distributors plays a key role in getting the most from packings.

  • Decode your Digital Future

    Understand where your plant can achieve benefits from a digital fieldbus

    Ian Verhappen, MTL Instruments
  • Avoid Costly Fabrication Mistakes

    Common oversights keep plants from getting the most reliable and suitable vessels

  • Process Hero

    Simulation Software Rocks for Training, but Its Benefits Go Way Beyond Teaching to Aiding Design, Optimization, Maintenance and Life-Cycle Management. Here’s How Savvy Users are Gaining Simulation’s Full Advantages

  • Stick to the basics

    Getting immersed in details can doom a basic design contract to financial failure.

  • Faking It Isn’t All Bad

    Simulate or model your loop tuning, operator training, advanced process control or optimization for savings, safety and skill-building.

  • Rethink your approach to process safety

    Place more emphasis on avoiding hazards rather than just controlling them. Process risk reduction can involve limiting the likelihood of potential accidents or cutting their consequences.

  • Membrane Boasts Material Benefits

    As economical separation of contaminants from natural gas becomes increasingly important, simulation eases the design of innovative module to remove carbon dioxide. Membranes offer potential advantages over other methods.

  • Succeed at Simulation

    The “Seven rules for successful simulation” need to be revisited and revised because of advancements in computers. Simulations that once took weeks to compute an answer now take mere hours.

  • Sleep with the enemy

    Stop fighting environmentalists and embrace them because it’s good for the planet and business. The challenge for the chemical industry is to win support in the court of public opinion before building or expansion plans run into trouble. And the key to that lies in a company’s willingness to understand the complex and sometimes conflicting motives of opposition groups and to communicate effectively to all constituencies.
