Turbo-Dryer can be used to dry water-wet or solvent-wet materials through a wide temperature range without the need for vacuum. The gentle material-handling features and low exhaust velocities of the continuous, rotary tray dryer reduce fines formation and carryover in the exhaust.
Bühler appointed Mark Macus its CFO, effective September 1, to succeed Andreas Herzog, who is retiring. Herzog has served as CFO for the family-owned company for 17 years. Macus is returning to Bühler to take on the position.
With today’s competitive international market, all plants need to reduce operating costs, and lowering energy consumption can have a positive impact on the bottom line. A plant’s steam and condensate systems cannot afford to vent any utility steam, blowthrough steam or flash steam to the atmosphere. An additional benefit of not venting steam is a significant reduction in emissions in the boiler operation.
Companies spend a significant amount of time and energy selecting the best type of pipe material for the application, calculating size and lengths needed, and following and implementing standard instructions for proper pipe installation.
With mounting globalization, diminishing information asymmetry, disruptive business models, accelerating innovation and relentless competition, industrial organizations are having to adapt at a pace unrecognizable to previous generations.
One of the most common pieces of equipment in many industries is a heat exchanger. As its name implies, it is designed to move heat from a process fluid to another fluid — which might be liquid or air. The process fluid is heated or cooled as the application demands. The transfer fluid might be air or a liquid, also as the application demands.
In an interview with Editor Linda Becker, Matthew Konkle with Dürr Megtec explains the types of technologies used for emissions control in the process industries and offers advice for proactive and reactive maintenance of these systems.
The three largest contributors to the formation of NOX are industrial sources, natural sources and agricultural sources. Abatement and control technology for NOX includes a variety of solutions. Among them are oxidizers, low NOX burners and selective and non-selective catalytic reduction units.
