A functional acceptance test can help alleviate the risks associated with performing first-run testing of factory logic programming for combustion controls or burner management on fired equipment in the field. Performing such testing helps ensure the manufacturing process for critical control systems.
Control systems that are responsible for the safety, startup sequencing and operating supervision of critical applications such as burner management, combustion control and boiler control systems must be designed to be both fail-safe and reliable.
Convection dryers vary greatly in size, features and delivery method and design of the air and heat distribution. To meet your process requirements efficiently, it is important to select the right type of dryer for your products and processes. It is equally important, however, to properly size and design the dryer.
One of the most crucial aspects of the overall health of an industrial heater is its insulation resistance, which can be affected by many factors. Faulty elements, age, moisture ingress and long periods of downtime can all negatively impact the health of an industrial heater.

Line of PTC top-loading ovens includes a 48 ft3 oven designed and used for burn-in, qualification testing and calibration of down-hole drilling instruments. While the oven is designed to stand up to oilfield conditions, it also can be used for other applications that require a long narrow chamber.
Process equipment manufacturer Readco Kurimoto opened a testing laboratory at its York, Pa., headquarters. The facility, which includes machinery able to process up to 2,000 lb/hr, allows the company to conduct tests that simulate actual operating conditions using customer materials and formulations to verify machinery performance meets targeted goals.
Opened in 1898, Siemens’ Norwood Motor Manufacturing plant, just outside of Cincinnati, is one of the company’s longest continuously operating plants globally, says the company. To celebrate the milestone, the facility recently opened a test observatory. The new equipment extends Norwood’s testing range from 10,000 to 20,000 hp at frequencies from 10 to 300 Hz to address the increased use of variable-frequency drives.
Thermal Product Solutions shipped two Lunaire steady state chambers that can be used for various types of applications, including stability, shelf life testing, pharmaceutical testing, packaging material testing and incubation.
