In Process Heating's annual Equipment Overview on Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all the data you need to choose a fluid that can take the heat - and move it to wherever you need it to go.
Not all steam is the same, and many terms are used to describe steam in various applications and industries. Understanding the properties and characteristics of various steam types can help you avoid confusion —and can prevent misuse in an application.
Often, the functionally safer a system is built, the less reliable it becomes. Part one of this two-part series discussed how to handle independent protection layer alarms. In this article, I’ll demonstrate the concept using the example of a refinery furnace.

Despite the fact that most boiler shutdowns can be traced back to poor feedwater treatment, topics like boiler efficiency, fuel savings and general maintenance tend to dominate the conversation. Proper boiler water treatment improves steam quality, boiler efficiency and uptime.
When constructing a new canola crushing and oil refining plant capable of processing 2,500 metric tons of canola seed per day, one of the largest Canadian canola producers sought a process heating system capable of mitigating the unavoidable sub-freezing temperatures affecting production during winter.
SPX Corp. will purchase Cincinnati Fan & Ventilator Co. Inc., a manufacturer of engineered air movement solutions such as blowers and critical exhaust systems, from Dominus Capital. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year.
A new flow calibration rig will allow Endress+Hauser to expand calibration services at its Houston campus. The flow calibration rig accommodates units to the 12" line size and 1,750 gallons per minute. In addition, it will allow the company to service Coriolis, electromagnetic, vortex, ultrasonic inline and ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeters.
An electrically heated batch oven will be used to cure a coating on aluminum parts at 149 to 158°F (65 to 70°C). Wisconsin Oven, East Troy, Wis., manufactured and shipped the oven to a company in the electronics industry.
In cooperation with productronica 2021, IPC hosted a hand soldering competition on November 16-19. Skilled competitors — 21 hand soldering experts representing 14 electronics companies — demonstrated their expertise in hand soldering at the first-in-person trade show held in Germany since the onset of the COVID pandemic.
A wastewater treatment facility will utilize a direct-fired thermal oxidizer for the abatement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hydrogen sulfide and other separated constituents from the wastewater treatment gas-separation process.
Paired with a top-mounted tank-cleaning device and installed flush with the tank wall or bottom, PlusClean provides cleaning coverage in shadow areas such as beneath agitator blades, says the manufacturer.
