  • The duty-factor - choosing a quality high pressure system

    Definition of Duty-Factor The duty-factor of your pump or system could simply be the product life. Or the duty-factor could be more specifically defined as the length of time a pump or system runs between servicing and the type of performance during this time frame. Elements determining Duty-Factor The duty-factor is affected by many variables including ...

  • PureAire Makes Oxygen Monitor for Nitrogen Generators

    Nitrogen generators are most commonly used in areas where on-demand nitrogen is preferred rather than, storing liquid nitrogen (LN2) in cylinders.  Nitrogen generators have a lower cost of operation, and can be used where smaller amounts of nitrogen are needed. Nitrogen generators are used in the pharmaceutical industry, testing laboratories, cryogenic facilities, welding manufactures, and ...

  • Simulation of membrane fouling considering mixed liquor viscosity and variation of shear stress on membrane surface

    Simulation of membrane fouling in MBR was conducted considering accumulation, detachment and consolidation of extracellular polymeric substances accumulated on membrane surface. The fluctuation of shear stress working on membrane surface and the influence of the viscosity of mixed liquor were considered for the evaluation of shear stress. A flat-sheet-type membrane module was used and the change ...

  • Reliable pH measurement in Oily applications

    pH measurement in the petrochemical industry is frequently extremely difficult. Operating in high temperatures with highly reactive contaminants traditional pH reference electrodes can, in some applications, last only days. IC Controls 613 sensors reference is designed for difficult applications particularly where fouling or poisoning conditions exist. The reference uses a highly stable ...

  • Bed Level Measurement

    Numerous studies and papers have been devoted to the subject of thickener design and operation to achieve specified throughput and discharge densities. Mathematical models have been developed that present methods for sizing thickeners and predicting performance under varying process conditions. The compression effect of deeper beds on dewatering performance is a recognized phenomenon. This is one ...

  • Reducing Costs of Steam Flow Measurement

    Traditionally, steam flow has been measured with a differential pressure device. This is typically an orifice plate. However, such devices are inherently volumetric flow measurements. As we have discussed in previous blog posts, changes in pressure and temperature ...

  • How can I measure Salt in food?

    Sodium is a mineral required by the body for normal functions, but excessive intake can cause high blood pressure and hypertension. This has lead governments and regulatory bodies to focus on monitoring the levels of salt in foods in order to reduce the risk of these health affects. Canned foods are of particular concern as these often contain relatively high levels of salt. ...

  • Increased Demand for PureAire’s Oxygen Monitor for Nitrogen and Helium Storage

    When storing or using Liquid Nitrogen, Helium, CO2, or Argon cylinders in a confined space, what are the potential risks? Gas leaks are the most common, requiring the need for an oxygen deficiency monitor for protecting employees in the workplace.  With inert cryogenic gases, loose or broken fittings can leak gas into a room displacing oxygen, causing impaired judgment or loss of life to ...

  • Two Technologies for Flow Measurement from Outside a Pipe

    Doppler and Transit Time are two very popular types of flow meter for non-invasive measurement of flow in full pipes. We tend to confuse these technologies because they are both ultrasonic and both measure flow by using sensors clamped onto the outside of a pipe. In the real world they actually work best in opposite applications. Success in your installation depends on understanding the ...

  • Assessment of swimmer behaviors on pool water ingestion

    Enteric pathogens in pool water can be unintentionally ingested during swimming, increasing the likelihood of acute gastrointestinal illness (AGI). AGI cases in outbreaks are more likely to submerge heads than non-cases, but an association is unknown since outbreak data are self-reported and prone to bias. In the present study, head submersion frequency and duration were observed and analyzed ...

  • Case History - Ammonia Emergency Plan Calls on Packed Tower to Scrub Released Chemicals

    Croll-Reynolds designed the Union Camp packed tower scrubber for ammonia removal efficiency at 99+% for the minimum single valve release and well over 90% for the entire range of operation. A few years ago Union Camp turned a corner. Management decided that advance planning would take the place of reacting after the fact to an emergency or regulatory agency demands. At Union Camp's Dover, OH, ...

  • Tech update: Plant instrumentation - food engineering

    Sensors and other devices are the foot soldiers in automation architecture, but most food and beverage manufacturers still are looking for full value. You know an equipment category has arrived when it starts getting its own industry-specific center. For the food production sensors that do the heavy lifting in instrumentation technology, that day could arrive earlier rather than ...
