One of the world’s leading integrated steel and mining companies uses gigantic industrial ladles to transport hundreds of tons of molten steel each day within its facility. Due to the extreme heat of the liquid metal, these vessels are prone to damage and break-outs.
A leading manufacturer of filling, bottling, and packaging machines utilized Ethernet switches and Profinet technology to create an integrated industrial network.
Improperly specified, installed or maintained sight glasses can represent the weakest link in a processing system. The wrong glass or materials used will limit observation, require extra maintenance and replacements, and even fail under pressure with catastrophic results – since glass can fracture at 5 miles/second.
Those of us old enough to remember the “good old days” recall that grade school focused on learning the 3 Rs: reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithametic. In the world of sensors, there are also 3 Rs: Repeatability, Resolution, and Response.
O-ring face seal SAE J1453 fittings are popular in hydraulic lines onboard off road vehicles such as tractors, combines and other heavy equipment used in mining and construction. Due to the frequent vibration and actuation of components in off-road vehicles, it is extremely important to reduce or eliminate the number of potential leak points and incidences of leakage.
From baghouses to cartridge collectors, dust collection is an important component of many successful manufacturing processes. Whether you’re looking to upgrade an old system or you need to expand existing pollution control resources, there’s a lot to consider in specifying and purchasing a dust collector.
The role process engineering teams play in North America’s growth is paramount to the success of the industry. Certainly making sense of how to process the shale crudes and gases and their impact on process equipment is an important feat process engineering teams are tackling.
For almost a half a century Canal Marine & Industrial of St. Catharines, ON, has provided electrical design, engineering and services around the clock to the merchant marine, naval and coastguard fleets in Canada and the rest of the World.
The vast majority of foam insulation (rigid foam board and spray foam) are largely produced using petrochemical feedstocks, according to Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). As such, they are produced from non renewable sources, emit significant greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions during manufacturing and are difficult to recycle at end of life.
Enabling radical improvements to machine reliability, SKF demonstrated its new optical sensing technology as part of the Sweden Co-Lab earlier this year at the Hannover Fair in Germany and more recently at the SKF Technical Press Day last month in Philadelphia.
