Differential Scanning Calorimetry is a technique in which the difference of energy inputs (heat flow) required to keep a substance and a reference material at the same temperature is measured as a function of temperature while the sample and reference material are subjected to a controlled heating program.
Hydrogen sulfide gas or H2S is one of the most common hazards in the process industries. H2S is colourless, flammable, and extremely toxic. The gas can accumulate in any area where oil or natural gas is processed, stored, or transported, and it may also threaten workers in wastewater treatment facilities, coke ovens, and pulp and paper mills.
The advantages and benefits of the Industrial Internet of Things all start with communication. In industrial applications a simple event increases the advantages as it goes wireless.
Swiss-based company Climeworks has launched a Direct Air Capture plant (DAC-3) in Italy. Every year the DAC-3 facility will filter up to 150 tons of CO2 directly from ambient air.
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s unique expertise in sun-viewing telescopes will be an integral part of the historic NASA Parker Solar Probe mission scheduled to launch Aug. 11, 2019, to better understand how the Sun affects our solar system.
These are interesting times for Universal Serial Bus (USB) security. With increasing pressure to limit network access to industrial control systems, industrial plant dependence upon USB removable media to transfer information, files, patches and updates has been greater than ever. At the same time, past research into USB threats has shown that portable USB drives are one of the top threat vectors impacting industrial control systems.
For both the A-Style and the K-Style diverter design option, the primary responsibility is to divert material from a single source toward either of two locations. However, the application benefits for each design vary from one another.
E3 Metals has developed proprietary extraction technology that improves lithium concentration and recovery. As part of a pilot plant project announced in September, the optimization and scale up of its extraction technology is meeting initial benchmarks.
Watch industry experts share the latest updates in codes and standards for arc flash safety, including NFPA70E-2018, IEEE 1584-2018 and NEC Article 240.87. Learn about a recent case study on how a cement company improved maintenance safety procedures to meet evolving industry standards and dramatically reduce arc flash risk for plant personnel.
