Bristol-Myers Squibb Works hard to be a Good Neighbor
Bristol-Myers Squibb manually monitored dissolved oxygen (DO) periodically and ran aeration blowers more than necessary to guard against variable loading rates. After upgrading the system to use online DO monitoring operators now have continuous DO readings in the aeration tanks, substantially reducing energy and maintenance costs.
How to Reduce Tank Cleaning Time (And Lost Time) with Water Jets
Automated water jetting removes hardened deposits from tanks and reactors quickly and thoroughly, saving hours of downtime and getting tanks back into service sooner. A new white paper explains high-pressure water jetting, introduces typical equipment, and compares the process with other methods.
Heating Water by Direct Steam Injection
Direct steam injection provides a solution where large volumes of hot water at precise temperatures are required, and saving space and energy are factors in the system design.

Chemical Processing Special Report: Beyond Condition Monitoring: Prevent Failures through Condition Management
For years chemicals makers have tracked the health of key equipment yet they still grapple with unplanned outages that can significantly impact financial performance through lost production and extra repair costs. In this Special Report, we'll explore underlying condition monitoring challenges and introduce the concept of condition management -- an enhanced approach that helps companies reap the full benefit from their condition monitoring investments; we'll also discuss how CMMS tools can help to provide a clear understanding of maintenance operations performance as well as provide some guidance on what you can expect from a CMMS vendor. Lastly, listen to the lively discussion between Chemical Processing's Senior Digital Editor,Traci Purdum, and Edgewater Fullscope's Senior Vice President, Russell Smith, as they converse on how ERP can help manage the supply chain.
How Automated Water Jetting Improves Tube Bundle Cleaning Efficiency
Heat exchanger efficiency is a critical factor in processing productivity, and tube bundles must be kept clear of deposits to maintain that efficiency. Automated high-pressure water jetting systems, with flexible or rigid lances, remove deposits 75% to 90% faster than manual methods and are more operator-friendly.
