  • Upgrade Fill Media to Improve Cooling Tower Efficiency

    One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways in which to extend the life of a cooling tower, improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce maintenance downtime, is to upgrade the cooling tower’s fill media to components constructed out of robust and non-clogging materials such as Polypropylene (PP), PVC or stainless steel. Fill is a critical component in the heat transfer ...

  • Direct contact heat transfer using No. 2 Type-K Tellerette® Tower Packing

    A customer with a sulfuric acid reclamation facility needed to cool a saturated air stream or closed loop process operation. The 10,000 CFM air stream at 165° F. had to be cooled to 110°F. The existing equipment was only able to achieve 125°F. Cooling liquid availability included a large quantity of processed water at 110°F and a smaller amount of city water at 55°F. Verantis recommended ...

  • Smelter gas cleaning one vessel from the quench to the drying tower

    Base metals such as zinc, lead and copper are all found in nature bound with sulphur as sulphite minerals: sphalerite (ZnS), galena (PbS), several copper minerals, silver (found as acanthite Ag2S), and, along with other precious metals. Processing of the metals invariably leads to sulphur dioxide (SO2) formation. Other metal processing, such as aluminum from bauxite ore [Al(OH)3] which contains ...

  • Delta-T increased at biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility case study

    The cooling towers at a biopharmaceutical manufacturing company in the Midwest had become packed with scale. The severe scaling resulted in the inability of the towers to maintain any cooling capacity during extremely hot summer temperatures. RYDLYME approach 660 gallons circulated for 6 hours. RYDLYME results Cleaning resulted in Delta-T ...

  • Food Processing: Odor Control in Edible Oil Processing

    Abstract: The problems with odor around a typical edible oil deodorizer are discussed in detail, and a three-step solution to eliminate these problems is presented. The three steps are a distillate recovery system which recovers most of the fatty acid in the deodorizer vapor discharge as a valuable byproduct, a closed loop barometric cooling water system which keeps the fatladen ...

  • Scrubers with a level head

    The available methods for removing pollutants from a gas stream are numerous, to say the least. A popular method, scrubbers allow users to separate gases and solids by allowing the gas to come into contact with a liquid stream. In the end, the pollutants are washed away in the effluent, and the gas exits the system to be used in later processes or to be released into the atmosphere. For many ...
