  • The impact of tower internals on packing performance

    The overall tower performance is influenced by the type of both tower internals and random packing. The Raschig GmbH's most recent development is the Raschig Super-Ring®, the fourth generation of random packings. In 1998, the Raschig Super-Ring No. 2 was tested at the facilities of Fractional Research Inc. A significantly improved capacity and pressure drop over other random packing was ...

  • It’s Time to Rethink Cooling Tower Filtration

    ABSTRACTThe dissipation of ambient or process heat in large HVAC systems, manufacturing facilities, power generation plants, refineries, metal mills and forges, chemical plants and food processors is most often accomplished by cooling towers. These simple structures facilitate the transfer of unwanted energy (heat) from a transport liquid (usually water) to the atmosphere. The bane of cooling ...

  • Fungal biodiversity and mycotoxigenic fungi in cooling-tower water systems in Istanbul, Turkey

    This is the first study to assess fungal diversity and mycotoxigenic fungi in open recirculating cooling-tower (CT) water systems (biofilm and water phase). The production capability of mycotoxin from fungal isolates was also examined. The mean fungal count in 21 different water and biofilm samples was determined as 234 CFU/100 mL and 4 CFU/cm2. A total of 32 species were identified by ...

  • 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 ...

  • Food Processing: Tower Scrubber Reduces Pollutants Recovering Reusable Solvents Case Study

    FMC adapted a ‘good neighbor’ policy when it installed a specialized, countercurrent packed tower scrubber into its seaweed extraction process system. The tower recovers isopropyl alcohol from the company’s process, thereby reducing pollutant emissions at the Rockland, Maine facility. The unit rids of the need for additional pollution control instrumentation and eliminates ...

  • Alcohol scrubbing pharmaceutical manufacturing 105

    A New York based pharmaceutical manufacturer’s pill coating operation required ventilation to keep the isopropanol levels in the dryers from reaching LEL concentrations. Due to the high volatility of the alcohol, it was necessary to use a once through with water to absorb the hot, high concentrations of isopropanol. A vertical tray scrubber (Model VTS) was utilized in order to optimize the ...

  • Production control of solder powder - Case Study

    In the past most industrial solder pastes were made using oxidised powder produced by simple air atomisation. Pressure to improve the control of the size range of solder pastes, and to avoid the use of corrosive halide fluxes, has led to a demand for lower oxide levels. In addition increased use of automated oxygen analyzer application systems has led to much more critical specifications for ...
