Compare and understand the most common calcium carbonate scale prediction methods for cooling waters. Learn where and why some methods are inaccurate, and understand how an accurate prediction method can optimize a calcium carbonate scale-control program as well as provide a cost reduction in cooling water treatments.
January 11, 2019
Predicting calcium carbonate scale in water systems has been done for more than 20 years — often with questionable or even inaccurate results rather than actual field observations.
Taurus Series provide a double-isolation function with a twin-ball design and a bleed function by different bleed/vent valve designs. The block valves are available from 1 to 6" full bore (8" reduced bore).
The Fluid Controls Institute (FCI) updated American National Standards Institute standard ANSI/FCI 87-1, Classification and Operating Principles of Steam Traps. It now includes three important information sections.
Winters Instruments, Toronto, Ontario, extended its five-year warranty to cover all products effective immediately. This includes its thermometers, temperature sensors, valves, thermowells, pressure gauges, pressure transmitters, pressure switches, diaphragm seals and all accessories.
Used for the separation of dissimilar products, the D4 Series helps maximize productivity and provide reduced product and personnel risk across the food and beverage, dairy, personal care and brewing process industries.
Education is crucial when it comes to selecting the right valve for your hot oil application. You don’t want to waste valuable resources by installing a gland-packed valve when a bellows-sealed valve is really what’s needed. Click here to read about a processing plant that had made safety provisions for its leaking valve a part of its SOP—because no one there knew better.
Low temperature stainless steel shutoff valves are utilized for on/off control of fuel gas within gas fuel trains in process heating system burners. These systems are widely used by oil-and-gas firms and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that operate or produce gas heating equipment or burner management systems (BMSs) in upstream pipelines and tanks.
High precision mass flow meters and controllers for gases, Type 8741 and 8745 offer a choice of industrial Ethernet protocols, including Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT or Modbus TCP. Typical applications include metal, glass or ceramic processing, coating technology or in the production of foams in the food and plastics industries.
Metso received two orders totaling 8,200 valves from major pulp and paper companies in China. Metso will supply Neles ball valves, globe valves and segment valves, as well as Neldisc butterfly valves for on-off duty and control applications.
