Mechanical seals use a barrier fluid that often is managed via API Plan 53a. The closed seal-support system usually used for this plan can pose issues of dirt and bacteria buildup. Two-part vessels enable easier cleaning and improve hygiene standards.
Cole-Parmer Releases New Fluid-Handling System Sourcebook -- Catalog includes laboratory and process solutions from such brands as Masterflex, Oakton, and Advantec.
Online Seminar Series Offers Valuable Fluid Handling Insight
Cole-Parmer Releases Its Fluid Handling System Sourcebook
New nozzle technology and improved control are enhancing the performance of systems. However, it’s still crucial to select the most-appropriate and cost-effective technology for a particular application. This article provides practical pointers.
Understand the tradeoffs between direct and cascade control.
When proper design fails, sometimes you can inject air into pumps to prevent cavitation.
Pay close attention when designing relief valve systems and avoid using back-to-back devices.
Understand where it fits in terms of cost and performance
Effectively Clean Tanks and Reactors -- Choose the right equipment to avoid costly contamination problems.
Pick the Proper Hose -- Making a correct choice requires an understanding of hose components.
The ability to see what is happening inside a pipe can be invaluable to process operators. Despite technological advances, no sensor can equal the human eye, which has more than 94 million photo receptors. While your eyes are peeled you must also understand the tolerances allowed under API-610 ...
You can get information completely focused on a specific area of interest including fluid handling, powder handling, energy efficiency, wastewater and more.
Thermal flow measuring technology has come a long way since the introduction of thermocouple technology and early hot wire anemometers. Read this seven-page paper for the details.
Consider several types of pumps to handle viscous fluids.
Properly Tackle Fluid Flow Problems -- This requires far more than modeling software.
Often a large amount of water is added to a slurry to enable the slurry to be handled by a centrifugal pump. Using a peristaltic pump instead can significantly reduce the amount of water that must be added to the slurry.
Plant management wants to increase the average water flow rate by 20%. Success depends upon lowering head losses or raising pump pressure.
Watch Out With Piping, Valves and Hoses -- Consider common dangers during process hazard analysis
Process engineering & chemical manufacturing: This article from Ross Mackay, an exclusive contributor to ChemicalProcessing.com and author of The Practical Pumping Handbook, discusses how you can save energy in your plant with proper pump selection.
Nix Nozzle Nuisances -- Avoid flow problems by considering the impact of inlet losses.
This paper looks at the issues associated with fluid particle analysis, discusses some of the historical methods used, and introduces a new technology: the continuous imaging fluid particle analyzer.
Clamp Down on Clumping -- First understand whats really causing the problem.
Tough services dont necessarily demand expensive devices.
Mind the curves when using different size pumps.
