  • Chemical Processing Flow eHandbook: Best Practices for Flow

    The purpose of installing a flowmeter system is to accurately measure flow in a reliable manner. Issues related to physical properties, process parameters, electronic features, interconnections can all affect the flowmeter performance. This Chemical Processing eHandbook takes a look at technologies and solutions affecting flow as well as the impact of specific regulations on flowmeter systems including:

    • Specifying the right slurry seal – understanding dual-seal and water-management options
    • Ground EMFs with Virtual Reference - New grounding method eases electromagnetic flowmeter installation and minimizes costs
    • Determine Boiler Size Using a Flowmeter - An inline vortex meter reveals the proper steam usage, resulting in significant savings and improved energy efficiency.

  • CP eHandbook: Reliability/Asset Management

    Reliability programs are now standard business practice in companies that rely heavily on machines, equipment and other physical assets. But, in today’s lean economy, companies have fewer resources than ever to manage and maintain these assets. Plants face challenges in identifying new and cost-effective ways to ensure their assets are performing and that they are managing to minimize operational risks. In this Chemical Processing Reliability/Asset Management eHandbook we take a look at proactive approaches for improving reliability and maintenance in today’s processing plant including:

    •    Equipment rotation: identify damaged and worn components before they cause problems
    •    Backflush strategies: flow reversal can remove fiber buildup in heat exchangers
    •    Advanced Reliability Management: key steps for leveraging limited resources and critical assets
    •    Predictive Maintenance: detailed analysis of maintenance records can further improve equipment reliability

  • CP eHandbook: Dealing With Water Challenges

    For chemical processors, the use of water in their processing can correlate to significant costs. Cost, coupled with an increasing focus on the environmental impact of both water usage and wastewater creation, are challenging processors to take a closer look at both their consumption of water and production of wastewater. Wide-ranging water optimization efforts, from fixing pipe leaks to minimizing cooling tower blowdown, are providing significant savings to chemical makers, but there’s more. In this ChemicalProcessing Water/Wastewate eHandbook we take a look at how to deal with water challenges including:
    •    Reducing water consumption and increase recycling – including examples of achievement and strategies from BASF, Air Products, Eli Lilly & Co, and Pfizer
    •    RO Membranes: proactive steps can maximize life and performance for water purification
