  • Bringing precision to steel production - Case Study

    Aluminum and steel manufacturers use mass flow controllers to inject purification, stirring and shielding gases into their melting, casting and annealing processes. Precise, automated gas flow control reduces toxic emissions and material costs.  Final purification of aluminum is accomplished by bubbling a mixture of argon and chlorine gases through the molten metal. This process separates ...

  • Smart LDAR — more cost-effective?

    On December 19, 2008, EPA issued a final rule establishing a voluntary Alternative Work Practice (AWP) to detect leaks of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) from process equipment (FR Vol. 73, Number 246), thereby providing the regulated community additional flexibility in complying with leak detection and repair (LDAR) requirements. The AWP allows owners or ...
