  • Chemical Processing Flow eHandbook: Monitoring 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 and interconnections are often given much consideration. Relatively little emphasis, however, is given as to how well the flowmeter will perform its intended purpose. Adding to the confusion are the differences in how performance is expressed and the incomplete nature of the available information. Nevertheless, the quality of flow measurement should be a concern. This Chemical Processing eHandbook takes a look at technologies and solutions affecting flow including: * Coriolis meters - steps you can take optimize performance when faced with entrained gas * Magmeters -- why you should consider using them * How to achieve effective flow control with centrifugal pumps

  • Special Report: Heat Transfer Fluids: Do's, Don'ts, and Best Practices

    Heat transfer fluids -- from mineral oils to synthetic and organic-based formulas -- are the lifeblood of many critical operations within the process industries. This special, interactive PDF looks at how plant personnel can better understand various fluids and fluid properties, and track the performance of their entire heat transfer system.

  • Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sight Glass Application Handbook

    20-page Sight Glass Application Handbook is a convenient reference for experienced engineers and a great primer for those new to sight glass selection. It offers a full overview of sight glasses for chemical processes, including types of glass, construction, lighting, installation and maintenance.

  • Spray Gas Quench Design Considerations

    The use of spray nozzles to rapidly cool or quench gas streams is an essential application in many industrial processes, such as chemical reaction vessels, incineration, and power plant absorber gas inlet. An optimized spray quench design requires engineering analysis of the operating environment, spray nozzle performance and process reliability. This technical paper describes the design considerations for spray gas quench systems such as nozzle selection, process control, system configuration and reliability. Application of this knowledge can result in a gas quench system that operates efficiently and reliably with reduced vessel size, reduced atomization energy consumption, and minimized downtime, to achieve capital and operational cost savings for your process.

  • Closed System Technology Drives the Trend Toward Safer, More Cost-Efficient Chemical Dispensing

    In dozens of industries and in millions of applications around the world, dangerous chemicals are transferred from their original shipping containers into smaller jugs or buckets or applied to other end-use processes. Historically, the predominant dispensing method in many of these applications has been through an open system where the liquid is poured out of the container. With a poured system, the container is often flipped on its side and the liquid is poured into a secondary container. The user then just carries the bucket to wherever it needs to go. A mental image of this technique quickly reveals its potential dangers and inefficiencies.

  • 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: 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.

  • Design Considerations for High Liquid Rate Tray Applications

    Except for a few odd services, high liquid rate applications are typically the domain of either trays or random packings. Aside from the distributors, random packing designs are rather straightforward with the designer choosing the proper size to accommodate the fluid flow rates and achieve the desired efficiency. Trays, on the other hand, have a large variety of adjustable parameters and can be especially complex, especially when designed for high liquid rate applications.

  • Accurate liquid phase density on aerated liquids

    This white paper discusses SONAR-based, clamp-on gas volume fraction meters which recently have been introduced to the industry that provide an accurate, real time, measurement of entrained gases. Coupling entrained gas volume fraction monitor with most types of process density meters, enables accurate determination of liquid and the liquid-solid components of aerated mixtures.

  • Electro-hydraulic system design: Making the right system choices

    Designers who understand and can take advantage of the differences between fluid power and traditional electromechanical power can build machines that produce higher quality output with lower lifecycle costs. This white paper suggests that care must be taken, however, in selecting and sizing the hydraulic system elements and in tuning the motion controller for optimal performance.
