In Process Heating's annual Equipment Overview on Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all the data you need to choose a fluid that can take the heat - and move it to wherever you need it to go.
Wireless process temperature measurement technology brings quality and efficiency improvements to one pet food manufacturer. Founded in 1974, Mountain Country Foods is a family-run business that evolved from a small beef-jerky manufacturer to one of the largest pet-treat manufacturers in the United States.
In injection-molding and extrusion processes, water or air cooling is used to regulate
the temperature of the molding process and remove excess heat cause by shear. A simple, closed-loop temperature control system typically involves the input of heat, a sensor and a controller.
Being the fourth generation to lead a company that designs and manufactures fluid-bed dryers and heat transfer equipment, I have spent most of my life developing a high level of understanding of fluid-bed drying technology and how it can be applied to many different types of materials.
One of the most commonly used molten salts is a eutectic blend of sodium nitrate and potassium nitrate. Why use molten salts? They extend the upper range of the temperature limits in which a liquid heat transfer media can be used.
Submerged combustion is a method of direct-contact heating that has been practiced in a range of industries for several decades. This article explains the basic concepts of submerged combustion. It can be applied to process heating of industrial aqueous solutions and slurries as well as to the evaporation of solutions for the purposes of concentration or volume reduction.
