Like many of the process industries, thermal processing is a critical necessity to the oil-and-gas industry. Applications range from simple line heaters being fed from a single well to safety instrumented systems at a large-scale refinery. Regardless of the application, the thermal process is measured based on how safe, environmentally friendly and efficient it is.
A provider of natural gas and natural gas liquids as well as crude oil storage, distribution, transmission and transportation services, Dallas-based EnLink Midstream has operations in the most prolific oil-and-gas region in the United States.
Series 8214 has a double-disc design with overtravel to provide redundant sealing for leaktight shutoff. Features include visual indication of open and shut position; proof of closure switch; and silicon-free construction.
Tandem seal option for the Dean RA Series air-cooled pump helps protect environmentally sensitive areas from ground leaks, increase safety with added protection to avoid flammable fluids and improve compliance with insurance requirements.
Ensuring safety from fires and explosions in drying operations first requires the proper understanding of the thermal instability properties of the powder present in the plant. Four testing methods can effectively determine the powder’s thermal instability hazards and allow evaluation of the self-heating hazards.
Ignition sources for dust fires and explosions can take many forms. When powders are heated, however, new subtle sources of ignition hazards are revealed: Those associated with the inherent thermal instability properties of the powder being heated or dried, and the nature of the drying process.
On Demand Steam boiler safety concerns have typically been based on the potential for catastrophic explosions. However, experts suggest that while some types of boilers can be safer than others based on physics (and the potential for explosions), boiler safety is also about everyday burns, bumps, and bruises.
On Demand This webinar will emphasize safety systems and practices that are addressed in the latest edition of NFPA 86 “Standard for Ovens and Furnaces” and will provide case studies of oven failures that led to product loss and personal injury.
The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) is a voluntary national trade association representing the major segments of the industrial heat processing equipment industry. Established in 1929 to meet the need for effective group action in promoting the interest of industrial furnace manufacturers, the organization has expanded and currently includes designers and manufacturers of all types of industrial heat processing equipment.
