In our July 2021 edition of Process Heating, read our cover story on how infrared emitters can accelerate production and save energy and feature stories on thermocouples and RTDs and how they can help create better end products, learn how moving-bed heat exchangers can help reduce carbon footprint and energy costs and much more!
In many industrial processes, bulk granular solids undergo thermal treatment to meet or provide final product specifications. For example, calcination is a high temperature process that removes oxygen and volatiles to produce high quality cement and other refractory materials.
Steam generation is necessary for industries across the United States to manufacture the products and services we interact with daily. To accomplish such outcomes, however, requires optimizing the steam generation equipment and processes.
Often, the implementation of a predictive-maintenance (PdM) program is based on identifying imminent failures and preventing them — or by predicting a best estimate of an asset’s remaining useful life.
Web materials like foils, plastic films, paper or nonwovens often need heat for laminating, embossing or the the drying of coatings. Infrared heating systems with precise controls offer many advantages, including uniform heating and the ability to enable fast production speeds.
In this month's Places & Faces, Bruce I. Nelson, P.E., past president and current director of innovation at Colmac Coil, retires, Reading Bakery Systems (RBS) promotes Steve Moya to manager of the RBS Science & Innovation Center and more industry news.
A universal truth is that time moves in one direction: forward. Before we know it, it will be July 31, and your opportunity to submit a presentation proposal for the Process Heating & Cooling Show will have passed. Before it does, I want to invite you to join us.
Astec Industries Inc. is launching a rebranding initiative, which includes a new logo and website, to coincide with its business model. The organization’s former brands, including Heatec, will no longer operate as separate subsidiary companies and will all take on the Astec name.
ITW EAE, a division of Illinois Tool Works, received orders for more than 90 Despatch LBB lab ovens destined for a state department of transportation. The ovens will be used for drying and testing asphalt and aggregate samples.
Recent FDA enforcement policy supports the use of Tenney environmental chambers for bioburden reduction on N95 respirators during the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency. The use of dry heat processing to reduce the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and limited reuse of NIOSH-approved filtering face-piece respirators, were cited in the FDA guidance.
Ceco Environmental Corp. has been awarded a large-scale project to provide equipment to help a global semiconductor chip manufacturer meet or exceed safety and environmental requirements by removing harmful gaseous contaminants.
Available in five sizes with flow capacities up to 265 gal/min (1000 l/min), inline-mounted stainless steel filters have a maximum working pressure of 580 psi (40 bar) and operate from 14 to 212°F (-10 to 100°C).
Suited for continuously processing multiple liquid, dry and viscous materials in a single step, the adjustable continuous processors have twin-shaft, co-rotating screws with intermeshing mixing elements that produce a homogeneous mixture independent of the level of fill.
