An industrial oven fire did not keep a manufacturing business down for long. According to a local report, AAI Power-Flo Technologies of Auburn, N.Y., was fully operational by Monday morning after the fire on Saturday.
Tube furnaces can be used for a range of thermal processes, including annealing, coating and drying. They offer much greater thermal uniformity when compared to cylindrical heaters. One manufacturer offers two types: split tube and solid tube.
A rental program allows food, chemical, plastics and other processors to test a continuous processor in actual operating conditions prior to purchase. The continuous processors can be used to mix, compound, crystallize, encapsulate and chemically react liquid and dry materials, including in sanitary environments requiring USDA- and 3A-compliant designs.
Did you know that circulation heaters play a vital role in several essential processes in the power generation industry? For example, they can be used to preheat fuel oils and lubricants; superheat steam; and heat natural gas above the dewpoint.
Thermal Product Solutions shipped six Gruenberg cleanroom ovens to a company in the medical industry. The front-loaded ovens have a maximum temperature rating of 300°F (149°C). They utilize horizontal airflow, which maximizes heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product load.
Infrared has been in use in process heating for more than 30 years, but only recently has it become a commonplace consideration for most oven designs. Convection (hot air) heating typically has been the ubiquitous solution, and it does a good job in many situations.
In 2018, a glass products manufacturing company in Ohio presented its automation engineers with a new project: Data from manufacturing lines needed to appear in a web-based user interface (UI) already in use by company supervisors.
Electrical equipment is almost always specified by manufacturers for operation within an optimal temperature range. That range is defined by the conditions that will ensure the equipment’s reliability, performance, efficiency and physical integrity are protected.
Smart process automation and data exchange technologies — more commonly known as Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) — are transforming manufacturing operations, and many companies are looking to capitalize on the benefits.
ScrubPac VentClean can provide more than 99 percent removal of storage tank emissions. The compact, packaged system can handle single and multiple sources with large variations in venting rates yet provide high removal efficiency, says the manufacturer.
