If you are not familiar with impedance pipe heating, you may not realize why it is an option for your next pipe heating application. Here is an overview of impedance pipe heating and 10 reasons to consider it.
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.
Replacing non-functioning boiler systems — pressurized vessels placed in a facility to heat water — can take quite a bit of time. Enter the boiler-bypass system: a non-pressurized system that sits outside a facility or building. It heats up hot water, which then goes through the heat exchanger inside the building. Such units can be deployed rapidly and are scalable.
Cypress Brewing, a three-year-old brewery based in Edison, N.J., produces several different varieties of beer, including IPAs, stouts and porters. Best sellers include Insane in the Grain, 17 Mile and Runway Model.
No matter where you look, you will see that industries worldwide rely on iron and steel as an integral component within projects such as shipbuilding, bridge construction and railway infrastructure. The global appetite for these materials is huge, and for most manufacturers of iron and steel, production is an around-the-clock process.
Trimac Industrial Systems, Bonner Springs, Kan., added Dan Cordial as sales engineer. Cordial has 30 years industrial capital equipment experience with roles in sales, design and project management in paint, powder applications and finishing systems.
Those that have worked with industrial thermal technologies likely remember when the U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technology Program was actively marketing its efforts to reduce industry’s energy consumption — and thereby reduce overall demand for energy.
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.
Lewco Inc., Sandusky, Ohio, delivered two furnace cells to a manufacturer specializing in alloy-based materials. Each cell includes a 1600°F furnace and an automated loader. Each furnace is designed to process two 800 lb wire coils per batch. A rod overbend heater design provides great temperature uniformity and a fast heat-up rate.
Registration is now open for IHEA’s Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating Online Learning Course, which begins October 7. Students will learn the basics of heat transfer, fuels and combustion, energy use, furnace design, refractories, automatic control and atmospheres as applied to industrial process heating.
United Process Controls upgraded the vacuum furnace controls and automation platform for Woodward Inc., a U.S.-based provider of fuel and control systems for aircraft engines. According to the company, the controls allow streamlined reporting for Nadcap compliance as well as integration with the company’s enterprise planning system.
Ma’anshan Iron & Steel Co. Ltd. (Masteel) awarded Fives a turnkey contract to revamp a continuous galvanizing line (CGL) to produce quality coated products. The existing CGL at the company’s site in the Anhui province of China can produce 350,000 metric tons per year of zinc-coated products. Once revamped, it will be able to deliver corrosion-resistant ZnAlMg-coated (zinc-aluminum-magnesium) steel sheet.
According to a recent Honeywell survey of business leaders in India, industrial cybersecurity breaches are damaging organizations by impacting the bottom line and company reputation. The survey polled strategic decision-makers from Indian industrial companies on types of cybersecurity threats, their approach to dealing with them and their organization’s respective preparedness as they adopt Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled technologies.
Wisconsin Oven Corp., East Troy, Wis., shipped a four-zone conveyor oven to a manufacturer in the oil and gas industry. The electrically heated oven has the capability to heat 25 parts per hour with a heating time of 48 minutes and a cooling time of 12 minutes. Each chamber in this four-zone oven has a maximum temperature rating of 752°F (400°C).
SPX Flow added a distribution center to its North American network to better serve customers of its Hankison, Deltech and Pneumatic Products brands. Based in Long Beach, Calif., the facility will benefit customers based in the western United States, Canada and Mexico.
Wall Colmonoy’s Modern Furnace Brazing School will be held October 22-24 at its Aerobraze Brazing Engineering Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Engineers, technicians, quality managers, production managers and others will participate in hands-on practical applications while learning about brazing technology.
Durex Industries, Cary, Ill., is offering screw plug, flange immersion and circulation heaters with fast-turnaround shipping capabilities. Plug heaters ship in three to five days, flange heaters ship in five to seven days and circulation heaters ship in nine to 12 days, regardless if they are standard or custom-configured. In addition, there is no upcharge for customized units or non-standard configurations.
Researchers at Purdue University discovered a method for using tannic acid to help create improved adhesives, coatings and manufacturing composites. The acid, which is used to flavor some drinks, may help make electronic components more durable and better for the environment.
The HEI incorporates a discharge electrode technology that can be sized to specific applications. It concentrates a high intensity ionizing corona in strategic areas within the collecting tubes instead of distributing it along the entire length of the tubes’ treatment area.
PolyOne is designed to fulfill process requirements of the pet food and aqua feed industry as capacity, screw speed, torque and pressure. The double-stage preconditioner separates the mixing zone from the retention zone.
With its design approach, company manages the design, engineering, testing, procurement and installation of entire continuous processing lines, including upstream equipment, from the storage silos, feeders and pumps through to mixing, blending and downstream to extrusion or cooling.
Line of power supplies meets functional safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3. Model Quint 20+ power supply has an integrated decoupling Mosfet and double overvoltage protection circuitry to meet rigorous SIL 3 safety regulations without the need for external redundancy.
M&J Valve Danflo is engineered to track unabated surge-wave pressure transients. The surge-relief valves can be gas loaded or pilot operated. Both types of surge-relief valves actuate in 100 msec and open in 250 msec, thus diverting the required flow quickly enough to keep the pipeline pressure well below the setpoint.
No. 1047 has eight drawers with dimensions of 6 x 13 x 6” with a removable insert to close around the product to be cured. The 350°F (177°C) bench oven has 2 KW installed via Incoloy-sheathed tubular heating elements.
