Vendors Offer Case Studies to Improve Performance
Case studies offer real world examples of chemical processing products in action. The following list highlights some of our most recent vendor-sponsored case studies along with links for more information.
Case Study: ICO Polymers Standardizes Worldwide on Microsoft Business Solutions—Great Plains (http://www.chemicalprocessing.com/whitepapers/2008/026.html)
Business Challenge: Implement one ERP system in all subsidiaries worldwide, so each country can better execute and deliver quality, value-added products to customers, effectively track sales and inventory data, and improve efficiency within the accounting department.
Case Study: How can manufacturers ensure they are choosing the right heat transfer fluid
Reliable heat transfer fluids are vital to the ability of manufacturers to operate efficiently and productively. However, some heat transfer fluids can degrade over time, resulting in deteriorating performance, impacting operating costs and product quality. With these possible consequences, how can manufacturers ensure they are choosing the right heat transfer fluid, and prevent these problems from occurring?
Case Study: Oil Eliminates Tar Buildup, Seizing in Vacuum Pump
Value Proposition: Technical know-how and a lubricant recommendation from Dow Corning applications engineers helped drive costs down. Application: Lubrication of vacuum pump in chemicals rocessing plant. Problem: High-purity synthetic oil was rapidly oxidizing, resulting in a buildup of tar and varnish that caused pump seizure every four to seven days. Solution: New technology ultra high-purity synthetic blend vacuum pump oil.
Case Study: Smart Elbow solves plastics problem
Stainless steel sweep elbows were wearing through at ACRO Extrusion Corporation, causing considerable down time, product loss, and maintenance expense. The sweep elbows in their pneumatic conveying system were wearing through every week to two weeks, requiring frequent system shut down.
Case Study: RTOs Leave Nothing to HAPpenstance
In September 1998 the EPA promulgated a ruling in 40 CFR, imposing strict new standards to reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants from the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The agency’s rule was intended to reduce emissions of a number of air toxics and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), including methylene chloride, methanol, toluene and HCI. It was estimated at the time that the ruling would reduce air toxins annually by approximately 24,000 tons or 65 percent from contemporaneous levels. The affected pharmaceutical manufacturing processes included chemical synthesis (drawing a drug’s active ingredient) and chemical formulation (producing a drug in its final form).
Case Study: Closed-System Chemical Dispensing Enhances Safety & Reduces Overall Operating Expenses
Traditional chemical dispensing methods may leave workers and the environment exposed to harsh chemicals and dangerous fumes. Container Technology resolved this problem using Colder Products Company’s new DrumQuik PRO system, a safe, easy and economic closed-dispensing solution for extracting chemicals from rigid containers such as drums, jerry cans and IBCs.
