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.
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.
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.
Suited for areas where flammable gases, vapors or finely pulverized dusts may exist, the EPF-HPSM-24-480V has three spark-resistant cast-aluminum blades that move stale air at a rate of up to 6,860 ft3/min.
On January 1, 2017, the revised (EU) No 517/2014 regulation states that equipment containing F-gases must be labeled with a reference that the equipment contains fluorinated greenhouse gases, the name of the refrigerant, the quantity of gas (expressed in kilograms) and CO2 equivalent along with the global warming potential (GWP) value of the refrigerant.
An electrically heated, 500°F (260°C) walk-in oven, No. 973 is used to cure rubber parts in rotating baskets. Workspace dimensions measure 36 x 60 x 60”, and 40 KW are installed in Incoloy-sheathed tubular elements.
Combustion safeguard system provide continuous, automatic protection against the buildup of combustible fuel mixtures due to flame failure or other faults in ovens, boilers, furnaces and other heating equipment.
Two types of flame sensors generally are used on industrial burners: flame rods and ultraviolet scanners. While each can perform the essential role of safeguarding industrial combustion systems, this article will focus on ultraviolet scanners.
Designed for industrial boilers, gas turbine installations and heat-recovery steam generators in combined-cycle installations, industrial fans and blowers line includes axial fans, centrifugal fans and blowers.
