In our August 2021 edition of Process Heating, read our cover story on vibrating fluid-bed dryers, the cost-effective, energy-efficient way to dry and cool products in process heating or cooling applications. Read on about the benefits of heat transfer pumps in high temperature applications and much more!
Power is nothing without control. You can have the best, most technically advanced burner. If the burner is not properly controlled, and the heat is not applied appropriately during the production process, the result will be disappointing — or worse.
During the production of myriad goods, the manufacturing process requires that a material be dried, heated, cooled or reacted to meet proper production and quality requirements for that process. Often, the equipment selected is a heated or cooled, mechanically agitated and efficient device for adding or removing energy from a process mass: a vibrating fluid-bed dryer.
In many industrial processes, heating and cooling play essential roles in the implementation or achievement of special quality characteristics. More specifically, processes in which heat transfer fluids supply or remove energy serve this purpose.
Did we really once think leather-padded wine-barrel furniture was the height of luxury, a prize to be coveted? Or gold- or silver-plated tea services, enormous brass beds and even more enormous home appliances with outsized analog controls? And Johnny Olson describes “A new car!” with fabulous options like an AM/FM radio, tinted windows and power brakes on every episode.
A three-zone, arched roll-support drying system will be used to dry both water and volatile solvent-based coatings on a wide rubber web (over 190"). ASI, Division of Thermal Technologies Inc., will supply the drying system for the new construction materials line for the global manufacturer.
Fabtech returns to McCormick Place in Chicago on September 13-16. As a part of the technical program, the Chemical Coaters Association International will host an industrial finishing safety workshop and a powder coating basics workshop in Spanish.
A U.S.-based manufacturer of microwave components needed precision heating to anneal parts before milling. To meet the heating demand, Lucifer Furnaces designed a small box furnace with a maximum temperature of 2300°F (1260°C).
The ability to conduct remote testing and product trials with the help of on-site food technologists is part of upgrades made to the RBS Science & Innovation Center. The facility, part of Reading Bakery Systems’ product development and equipment testing capabilities, allows food product manufacturers to test RBS’s baked snack production systems.
Designed for industrial processes that incorporate pumps such as condensate pumps, boiler feedwater pumps or low pressure centrifugal pumps, Model RTK brings together a pump protection recirculation valve and a control valve.
ProFire SBR-30 is capable of less than 30 ppm NOX emissions without flue gas recirculation (FGR). Its firing head is designed to achieve controlled combustion, leading to low emissions with 3 percent O2.
