  • CP eHandbook: Waylay Wastewater Worries

    The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), London, has released its Global Water Report 2014. Water challenges, especially in the chemicals industry have not diminished and in fact, are becoming an increasingly larger concern for processors. As stated by Paul Simpson, CEO of the CDP , “Leading companies increasingly recognize that business-as-usual approaches to water management are no longer sufficient.” Download this Chemical Processing eHandbook for:

    • Additional findings from the latest CDP report – with a focus on the chemicals industry
    • An overview on simple monitoring actions and how adopting best practices may lead to significant savings
    • How water conservation efforts can pay off
    • How to handle more flow – success often depends upon lowering head losses or raising pump pressure

  • Powder eHandbook: Combat Powder Processing Challenges

    In chemical production and processing, process design and process safety are crucial considerations – especially when powders are part of production and processing. Inherent challenges such as increasing throughput, accurately measuring powders to manage inventory and removing excess solvents are all challenges that chemical processors need to contend with. In this Chemical Processing Powder eHandbook, we take a look at these powder processing challenges and identify solutions and strategies to overcome them. Learn more about:

    • Vacuum conveying - customization, automation and safety
    • Matching level measurement system to a job - consider materials and work environment when choosing a device
    • Removing solvent vapors in diverse applications - dry and liquid ring vacuum pumps are alternatives to oil-sealed pumps
    • Meeting combustible dust compliance – how a facility tackles combustible dust with aportable central vacuum system

  • Chemical Processing’s Powder eHandbook: Tips for Successful Powder Processing

    Powders and the dust they create have a tendency to create a myriad of material handling headaches. For example, dust can wreak havoc on the performance and accuracy of many level sensors, rendering them inaccurate and unreliable. Powder particles under the influence of gravity can become compacted resulting in inter-particle friction that may prevent flow movement. In this Chemical Processing Powder eHandbook, we offer a few tips for optimizing powder processing.

  • Installing Fieldbus

    Many automation engineers are coming face to face with real fieldbus applications for the first time. Fieldbus offers many benefits, but installation requires some additional considerations over and above normal 4-20mA projects. This whitepaper discusses some of those issues, and shows you how to deal with them.
