  • Top 10 Considerations for Pneumatic Conveying System Design

    What you really need to know when conveying powders & other bulk materials -- Despite vast research on pneumatic conveying technology for bulk solids handling, little is known about the perspective of the manufacturer designing such systems and the end-user utilizing vacuum conveying technology. White paper addresses and answers questions from the manufactures perspective, with answers that aid in the design of both the components, and fully automated bulk material handling systems, necessary to provide solutions that integrate into batch and continuous processes.

  • eHandbook: Mix Up Your Mixing Approach

    Achieving blend uniformity is like trying to catch a leprechaun while riding a unicorn. Ingredient characteristics, blend hold times and mixing equipment all affect final quality. In fluid handling, what was once simple with universally standard impellers operating in standard vessels with standardized vessel internals has morphed into more individualized solutions. When it comes to solids, no two powders are alike – ever.

    To assist your mixing, we’ve put together another Chemical Processing eHandbook. It includes insight on:

    • CFD Stirs Up Mixing -- Progress in simulation provides improved mixer performance
    • Carefully Evaluate Blending Requirements -- When choosing a mixer, consider these four key components that can lead to improved mixing
    • Industrial Mixing Technology Challenges Require New Approach --Individually adapted mixing systems improve productivity and reduce costs
    • Aim for Blend Uniformity -- Ingredient characteristics, blend hold times and mixing equipment all affect final quality

  • Guide to Vacuum System Design

    The phrase “Vacuum Cleaning System” refers not only to cleaning by means of vacuum hose and tools, but also to a multitude of tasks which can be accomplished by the same basic system components: a vacuum producer and separators. In this paper, we cover the vacuum cleaning system as a tool for good housekeeping. Such a system is generally designed to pick up and convey dry and free-flowing material that can enter and pass through the vacuum cleaning tool and hose. Further, the system is designed to allow for a selected number of operators.

  • Special Report: Avoid Common Vessel Errors

    Welded vessels play a key role in most processes. However, few plants now have in-depth expertise in materials selection, fabrication and design of such vessels. As a result, plant staff often make errors that can be costly as well as compromise the suitability and life of the vessel. This three-part special report provides practical pointers that can help you avoid common mistakes and get the most appropriate, durable and cost-effective vessel.


    • Part 1 looks at a dozen important factors to consider in materials selection, including metal selection and appropriate use of corrosion allowances and coatings. It includes pointers gleaned from first-hand experiences that can help you avoid costly mistakes and delays.
    • Part 2 provides tips on how to avoid delays and achieve savings in the fabrication process. It also covers techniques that can improve vessel reliability and thus forestall costly repairs down the road.
    • Part 3 gets into design issues. It condenses the 5,000+ pages of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code into a simple guide when specifying vessels, heat exchangers and tanks. It focuses on 10 key factors.
