A man stood in the front of the room, holding a 12 by 12" card that looked like the most vibrant swatch I had seen. I wondered if he used the palette to select other colors for some of his art projects I could see surrounding him, or if the card represented an unusual new work.
Would you like to learn more about fluid testing methods and analysis for high temperature heat transfer fluids? How about recommended safety and maintenance for industrial cooling towers used in process applications?
January marks the return of our annual Equipment Overview on Heat Transfer Fluids, which includes all of the fluid characteristics needed to select a heat transfer fluid for industrial thermal processing.
Industrial combustion is front and center in this issue of Process Heating. First up is “Considerations for Regenerative Combustion Systems,” in which Michael Cochran of Bloom Engineering explores how using regenerative burners in pairs, along with a bed of ceramic or metallic media, can capture heat that would otherwise be lost from the process.
While I don’t avoid using chemicals, I will try natural remedies — and if they work, I’ll switch to using the natural alternative. Unfortunately, I mostly learn about the natural options on the Internet, and we all know what that means. Most of my experiments end with me muttering, “Well, that was a waste.”
