The spectrum of applications found in the process industries means that burner designs must vary widely. Smaller burners are utilized in paint booths, ovens and furnaces while larger burners are specified for incinerators, thermal oil heaters and oxidizers.
If you are like many manufacturing engineers today, you may think the legacy controls on your air pollution control equipment are working well enough. But, is the production output as good as it could be if the reliability of your oxidizer or scrubber were increased?
When I started my junior year of engineering school in the mid ’80s, the lease on the apartment I rented did not start until October. The university was 200 miles from where I grew up, but it just happened that my dad was working at that time in the same city.
Evaporative cooling has been around for centuries. Also called adiabatic cooling (particularly in Europe), evaporative cooling is the earliest form of air-side cooling known to man. In spite of that, it also is probably the least understood — and sometimes maligned — solution to cooling.
Industrial dryers are not one-size-fits-all systems. Key differences between drying inorganic and organic material mean that when researching drying technologies, it is important to start with the product to be dried.

Rockmart, Ga.-based Miura redesigned its website to streamline the boiler-buying process by making it easier to access relevant information, locate a representative, receive an estimate or purchase a new boiler.
The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) released a factual update into the May 3, 2019, explosion and fire at AB Specialty Silicones in Waukegan, Ill. The factual update provides a comprehensive incident timeline, detailing the events that led up to the massive explosion and fire that fatally injured four workers and seriously injured another.
Emerson added two Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions to its Plantweb Insight data analytics platform that will enable industrial facilities to transform the way they manage their enterprise-level wireless network infrastructure. The applications provide a quick-to-implement, scalable IIoT solution to help customers advance their digital transformation strategies and achieve greater operational efficiencies.
Sandvik acquired privately owned Thermaltek Inc., a manufacturer of high temperature furnace systems and metallic heating elements based in Concord, N.C. Thermaltek operates out of a 42,000 ft2 facility with approximately 30 employees.
Process heating equipment skids include standard unitary steel bases that allow cover-lift hoists, process air ductwork, control panels, monitoring instrumentation and other auxiliary equipment to be attached to the system as a single unit.
Swivldisc are offered in 0.5 through 4” sizes in ASME/ANSI-pressure classes through #4500. The severe-service valves have a wedge-gate design that employs a flexible disc that permits the seating surface to achieve good alignment.
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).
Flat and round copper heat pipes for electronics thermal management provide stand-alone cooling. The heat pumps can be combined with heat-spreading devices to deliver high levels of passive or active cooling.
Designed to remove high particulate loadings emitted from molybdenum concentrate and mineral dryers, Series 8500 is supplied with an induced-draft fan, recirculation pumps, piping, full instrumentation, electrical and controls mounted on the company’s ScrubPac skid-mounted platform.
Designed for the aerospace industry, the Ferris wheel oven will be used to cure epoxy resins and varnishes on assorted aerospace parts. The maximum operating temperature is 500°F (260°C), and work chamber dimensions are 3.33 x 3.5 x 3.5’.
