  • Leak detection in semiconductor fab gas processes

    Problem Statement Often times in semiconductor fabs moisture levels are monitored to ensure that products aren’t damaged by excess moisture in the process. If there are above normal levels of moisture, pinpointing the source of that moisture can be difficult. The moisture could be evolving from impurities in gas tanks or leaks in the sampling lines. One way to avoid downtime ...

  • Cost Containment: Beyond the Obvious

    Utilities today can implement a number of different initiatives to help them contain costs and maximize profits. Some of those, such as switching to a more efficient fuel source if possible, can produce obvious results that are relatively easy to calculate. But there are other initiatives, though less obvious, that can produce significant results at the bottom line. One such cost-containment ...

  • The Other Side of Zirconium Oxide case study

    Regular Fuel Efficiency Applications Separate Oxygen and Combustibles Sensors In standard flue gas applications for Thermox analyzers, the user generally tries to extract the maximum energy from the fuel and transfers as much of that energy as possible to the process. These applications require the process to be operated as efficiently as possible by keeping both oxygen (excess air) and ...

  • Building New Industries and Creating New Jobs in a Plan B Economy

    Building a new economy, one that can sustain economic progress, involves phasing out old industries, restructuring existing ones, and creating new ones. This new economy will be powered by renewable sources of energy, will have a more diverse transport system--relying more on rail, buses, and bicycles, and less on cars--and will recycle everything. For example, coal use will be phased out, ...

  • High density polyethylene (HDPE) pyrolysis plant

    Thermal degradation of plastic polymers is becoming an increasingly important method for the conversion of plastic materials into valuable chemicals and oil products. In this work, virgin high-density polyethylene (HDPE) was chosen as a material for pyrolysis. A simple pyrolysis reactor system has been used to pyrolyse virgin HDPE with an objective to optimize the liquid product yield at a ...

  • Site Vulnerability Assessments for Facilities That Use, Store, or Transport Chemicals

    In response to pressing issues facing the new Department of Homeland Security, over 15,000 chemical and industrial plants may have to evaluate their vulnerability to terrorist attack and improve countermeasures at their facilities.
