Manufactured (or synthetic) polymers were introduced in the 1800s, and since then, they have contributed significantly to our quality of life. Many products we rely on daily would not be possible without plastics, and those that would be possible without plastics have been vastly improved with plastics.
Foxconn will add a $30 million zero liquid discharge industrial water recycling system at the manufacturing facility under construction in Wisconsin. The company first proposed the ZLD system in its application for to the DNR in January.
Shell-and-helix heat exchanger is intended for use in ammonia/carbon dioxide (CO2) cascade refrigeration systems. The heat exchanger design incorporates stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance and long life.
Recapturing waste heat allows you to capture thermal energy you would otherwise let escape up the stack and put it to work in your process. Air-to-air heat exchangers provide an effective means of capturing this otherwise lost resource.
With an ever-increasing focus on energy efficiency and improving system performance, industrial processors are looking for ways to achieve these goals while reducing costs and material usage wherever possible.
Does it make sense to add secondary heat recovery systems to your thermal process to capture and repurpose the BTUs you have created before they escape out the top of the stack? An economic analysis can help you determine whether it is justified at your plant.
Secondary heat recovery systems capture excess energy in the exhaust stream of processes or oxidizers. On the surface, heat recovery makes good sense: Capture the waste energy and repurpose it rather than throwing it out an exhaust stack. The concept sounds relatively straightforward. As with most things, however, the proof lies in the details.
Industrial lasers, medical electronics and food and beverage processing have one thing in common: each can be effectively cooled with industrial heat exchangers. Learn more about these versatile indirect heat exchange devices.
Heat exchangers are devices that transfer heat from one medium to another. The purpose of the heat transfer typically is to lower or raise temperatures in a device or within a specified area. The two media can be the same — for example, air-to-air — or different — air-to-water.
Heat exchangers are available with optional bolt-on transitions that ease access to the core and improve exchanger body strength. In most applications, the simple bolted flange can significantly reduce labor costs and downtime for inspection and cleaning.
