  • Optical System Sets New Standards in Oxygen Measurements

    Optical Dissolved Oxygen Measurement in Power and Boiler Applications

    Over the past decade a few trends have started to gain pace within the industry, driving a change in instrumentation requirements for operations managers and plant chemists:

    • Maintenance and operations budget cuts have resulted in fewer plant personnel, forcing plant staff to optimize their workload even further
    • As the cost of building new power and boiler systems increase, many operators now look to plant life extensions as a solution to bridge gaps in production capacity at a lower investment premium

    These trends have changed the requirements in these applications. Starting from these trends, this article analyzes the options for oxygen measurements that are precise, reliable, stable, and above all require low to zero maintenance.

  • Measurement of Oxygen Concentration in Blanketing and Inerting Operations

    Gaseous oxygen measurement with amperometric sensors is the most direct and easiest solution for oxidation and explosion protection.

    Unwelcome oxygen Tank blanketing is the process of filling the headspace in storage vessels and reactors with an inert gas to prevent its contents from exploding, degrading or polymerizing and to protect equipment from corrosion. A blanketing system is normally designed such that it operates under higher than atmospheric pressures, therefore preventing outside air from entering the vessel. As oxygen and moisture in the air can be undesired in numerous processes and applications, blanketing is done in a wide range of industries, varying from (petro)chemical to food and beverage, pharmaceutical to pure water.

  • Chemical Processing Special Report: Conveyors

    No matter what industry you’re in, chances are you use some form of conveying. Whether it be pneumatic, flexible screw, aeromechanical or other, different conveyors are required to handle different products. But which conveyor is best suited for your operation? Despite the fact that conveyors have been around for almost a hundred years, this question still baffles many industries. In order to choose the right conveyor for your operations, you need to consider your conveyor's use - production, processing, packaging, and you need to consider your business objectives - improve operations? reduce labor?

    In this special report, we look at the different types of conveyors, discuss the use of tubular bag conveyors, and provide 10 tips to prevent a variety of common problems that could occur with pneumatic conveyors.
