  • Battling the waste sector´s common enemy: moisture content

    Moisture content has always been a barrier to maximizing profit from many waste streams. The problematic moisture content is mainly contained in the cell structure of organic materials. Conventional mechanical and thermal dryers like belt, drum, and liquidized bed dryers can’t open the cell structures of organic material and remove the moisture inside. Any dryer with mechanical pulverizing ...

  • Converting wet organic waste, black bag waste, as well as MRF residuals into solid recovered fuel (SRF) is now possible

    With China closing its doors to lower-grade recyclables, and with composting programs continuing to underperform, keeping this material out of landfill is becoming an increasing challenge. The largest problem has always been moisture content. What if you could turn all this waste (except for metals and inerts) into high-quality SRF without having to separate it, and without the need for ...

  • Outlook 2020: Fuels & Petrochemicals Will Continue to Help Humanity Thrive

    A 15-year rise in U.S. exports of refined products continued in 2019 with our nation exporting more than ever, underscoring the importance of these products to fueling a growing world. In the latter half of this decade, we’ve also seen U.S. petrochemical production capacity grow, and exports for petrochemicals and petrochemical feedstocks rise as well. It’s difficult not to see these ...

  • Weather monitoring in extreme conditions

    A VENTUS X ultrasonic wind sensor has been deployed by researchers at the Summit Station on the Greenland Ice Sheet in the Arctic, 10,000 feet above sea level, as part of a project investigating the role of aerosols in cloud formation. With integrated heaters and no moving parts, the wind sensor does not require recalibration – a vital feature of equipment in one of the most remote ...

  • Open circuit cooler & Closed circuit cooler

    Cooling tower is created for waste heat it used to reject the waste heat from industrial equipment. There are many types of cooling tower. In here, we want to introduce the difference between open circuit cooling tower and closed circuit cooling tower. Open circuit cooling tower is common used in industry but it has a critical issue about fouling deposited. But open type cooling tower still be ...

  • Danbury’s FOG-to-fuel solution

    An innovative FOG-to-Biodiesel approach addresses a costly problem for the wastewater industry and also generates a new energy resource for treatment operations. Brian Levine of GreasezillaTM and Al Barbarotta of REA explain. Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) waste is a serious and growing problem for the wastewater industry and the environment. Every year, grease costs municipalities millions ...

  • Multifunctional environmental meter for 5 measuring parameters – sound, light, wind temperature and humidity

    Environmental factors influence humans, animals and plants as well as buildings and their surroundings. The condition of stored goods, production processes, machines, apparatuses and buildings need to be protected. It is important to maintain a room climate that meets the needs of the users but at the same time does not cause any climate-related damage to the building. PCE Instruments has added ...
