Oil and gas processing, chemical processing and refining, finishing, food processing, plastics, packaging, printing, electronics, ethanol/biodiesel fuels, pharmaceuticals and pulp/paper/converting: Each of these industries has at least two things in common — the use of heat during the manufacturing process and Process Heating magazine. Using the search on our website and our Equipment Overviews — data-rich buying matrixes can help you identify manufacturers with experience you’re seeking — can help cut your equipment research time.

If, after looking through the articles in this issue, you still can’t find what you need, consider using our online Equipment Overviews. Offered exclusively on www.process-heating.com, our interactive Equipment Overviews cover 10 key equipment categories:

•  High temperature heat transfer fluids.

•  Boilers.

•  Power controls.

•  Ovens.

•  Dryers.

•  Convection and conduction heaters.

•  Temperature controllers.

•  Burners.

•  Heat exchangers.

•  Infrared heaters.

With our upgraded search function, you can search our Equipment Overviews, Buyers Guide and thousands of articles, news and product stories with a single search. Want to read articles that cover drying pastes and mixes? Search “pastes mixes” in the search field and view the results under “Articles.” Want to view companies in our Equipment Overviews and Buyers Guide capable of supplying equipment for drying pasts and mixes? Search for the same term and look under the “Directories” tab.

Of course, each of our online Equipment Overviews continues to include our advanced search function that allows you to select an “and” or “or” search within a specific topic. (For a page with links to all 10 topics, bookmark and visit http://www.process-heating.com/EquipmentOverviews.) If you select “and,” the advanced search function finds only those companies that meet all of the criteria you select from the checklist. If you select “or,” the search function will find all of the companies that meet at least one of your criteria.

These are just some of the ways we’re trying to help you connect with equipment suppliers with the experience you seek. Try our search and let me know what you think.
