  • Solid / gas separation with fabric filters

    A myriad of filter media are utilized today for separation of particulate matter in industrial gas filtration applications. These media range from single use (deposable) to semi-permanent media and include fiber, fabric, ceramic, membrane, metal mesh, and sintered metal media. Semi-permanent media are usually cleanable, either on or off-line, and are primarily intended for long-term (up to ...

  • Water contamination in fuel: cause and effect

    Water exists in three physical states and depending on the surrounding conditions it finds its way to the fuel systems like the high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel systems on diesel engines. The important point thereafter is to provide the best possible on-engine protection by securing the fuel injector systems from severe damage. As the environmental challenges and emission regulations become ...

  • Getting Comfortable With Your Reverse Osmosis Machine

    Introduction Most people who work with an apparatus unlike any in their previous experience approach it with some apprehension. This is common behavior and fits the way most of us approach unfamiliar things. Perhaps you deal with this kind of uncertainty about the reverse osmosis (RO) machine in your dialysis unit. This article is intended to increase your understanding of the machine and how it ...


  • LDAR deficiencies lead to enhanced requirements

    Leak detection and repair (LDAR) programs are required as part of the standards established in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 60 (NSPS), 40 CFR 61 (NESHAP), 40 CFR 63 (MACT), and 40 CFR 264 (Hazardous Waste Handling). An LDAR program is a facility’s system of procedures used to locate and repair leaking components (e.g., valves, pumps, connectors, compressors, and agitators) to ...
