This year's Chem Show has aisle after aisle of exhibitors displaying solutions for the chemical processing industry. Traci Purdum, senior digital editor with Chemical Processing magazine, spoke with Steve Kannengieszer, director of marketing, mass flow products at Brooks Instrument.
Reporting from the 2011 Chem Show, Traci Purdum is joined by Dr. Don Collins -- Market Development Manager for the chemical and pharmaceutical dry pump section at global vacuum company, Edwards Limited, which is headquartered in the UK. Edwards invented the concept of the low-maintenance, cost-effective, oil-free dry vacuum pump.
Traci Purdum, senior digital editor for Chemical Processing, is joined by Daniel Willis -- National Sales Manager for Industrial Protection Products at Fike. He has tremendous knowledge the changing codes and regulations within the industry.
The 2011 Chem Show offers attendees plenty to see and do. Traci Purdum, senior digital editor for Chemical Processing Magazine, spoke with the experts at Micro Motion, providers of fluid measurement technologies.
Jimmy Shoulders, Vice President of Sales at Venture Measurement, which includes Niagara Meters -- a provider of instrumentation products critical to process industries, told Traci Purdum, senior digital editor, about the company's ForceMeter.
Mark notes that moving promising biofuels technology from the lab to demonstration scale often poses a significant financial as well as technical hurdle. Now, though, developers can take advantage of an expanded government research facility.
Mark stresses that we should not ignore energy auditing. Technology and regulations will make chemical operations increasingly energy efficient. For instance, sites adopting digital fieldbuses gain access to data on equipment health that can provide early warning of performance degradation as well as diagnostic information that can lead to true predictive maintenance.
Mark hopes for the best that abundant supplies of domestic natural gas may open up more feedstock opportunities. Longer-term, the prospects may be even brighter: "With improving competitiveness resulting from developments in shale gas, the United States may once again become a favorable location for investment."
Mark discusses the fact that companies face increasing pressure to disclose, as well as optimize, water use. The rising cost and tighter regulation of water, coupled with concerns about adequate long-term availability in many regions, is prompting many chemical companies to treat water conservation as an imperative in their sustainability efforts.
Beat the summertime heat and prevent hot weather failures. UL Listed Compliant Cabinet Cooler® Systems produce 20 degree F air from an ordinary supply of compressed air to cool electrical controls. Thermostat control minimizes air usage. Maintains NEMA 4, 4X (stainless steel) and 12 rating of the enclosure. Watch the video to learn more.
Exair's Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of coolants. The Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. Coolant that used to last six weeks can now last six months. Watch the video to learn more.
