As all processes vary, so does the technology used to move granular bulk materials and dusty powders from source to destination. Here are ten things to consider when designing a vacuum conveying system:
Monitoring liquid level in a tank or container is a very common application in industry. Water, glue, oil and other liquids need to be stored and pumped to and from various areas of a plant, process and area. Although on the initial look these applications seem quite easy they do require a level of control beyond a simple ultrasonic sensor.
If you’ve bought blueberry muffins or bagels from your local grocery store, the berries have likely made a very long journey from the fields to your stomach. Before reaching your plate, the picked berries pass through a rigorous, multi-step inspection process that until recently utilizes mechanical, optical and human methods.
Koch Membrane Systems (KMS), a developer and manufacturer of membrane-based filtration technologies, has commissioned a packaged membrane bioreactor (MBR) system in Saskatoon, SK. The Puron Plus system from KMS is said to provide a compact and turnkey wastewater treatment solution that is fully automated and provides consistent high-quality effluent for safe discharge or reuse.
Thermal stability (or thermal hazards) testing collects reaction rate data and applies that data to assess whether a specified quantity of material can be used in a way such that runaway reactions are avoided. This is important when considering processing, long-term storage, or shipping of a material.
Since 2008, a Municipal Utility District (MUD) in Texas has worked with Less Watts, Inc. (LWI), a company that specializes in motor reliability and power quality testing for the water and wastewater industry. LWI supports Metropolitan Utility Districts by providing motor acceptance testing, commissioning, and condition monitoring services. When one of the booster stations managed by the Harris County MUD was upgrading its pumps and motors, Stephen Hogue from LWI was asked to perform acceptance testing.Read More
The petrochemical and chemical industries with their high degree of industrial cross-linking and connections, has an important position in China’s industrial-economic system. These branches are an important sign of national economic-social development level and comprehensive strength.
Liquid pumps made by pump technology leader KNF were on board an HTV-7 unmanned cargo spacecraft launched from Japan on September 23, 2018. Destined for the International Space Station (ISS), the spacecraft and its vital payload successfully docked three days later.
Scientific awareness of the greenhouse effect, and human influence on the climate has existed for over three decades. During the 1980s, there was a strong environmental movement and a political consensus on the issue, but in recent years, climate change denial – denying that changes to the climate are due to human influence on the environment – has increased.
Spectroscopy is the study of how light and matter interacts. Light can be broken up into several regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, so spectroscopy is perfectly suited for accurate real-time analysis and monitoring of continuous and batch processes.
