Articles explore the burgeoning oil and gas industry, including hydraulic fracturing operations, as well as ethanol and biofuel manufacturing. The technologies covered focus on the role of heat and thermal processing equipment.
A lack of regulations governing onshore drilling safety as well as shortcomings in safety management systems and industry standards utilized by the industry are among reasons cited for a fatal gas well blowout, says the U.S. Chemical Safety Board.
With a firing range of 15,000 to 200,000 MBH, Model FDR(X) combines a windbox, air register, ignition assembly, fuel train, flame-safety control, combustion control, flue-gas recirculation system and forced-draft blower into a packaged unit.
Digital mass-flow controllers provide stable control of mass-flow rates of process gases. With simultaneous display of mass-flow, volumetric-flow, pressure and temperature parameters, it can be used with manufacturing, bioreactors and surface depositions, and gas-sampling activities.
Morris L. Crafton, founder of Thermcraft Inc., Winston-Salem, N.C., died in February at the age of 93. Crafton and his wife Clara founded the oven and furnace maker Thermacraft in 1971, initially focused on making replacement heating elements for industrial and laboratory furnace applications.
An ever-increasing need for steam at specific temperatures and pressures exists in many modern plants. Fortunately, significant improvements have been made to increase operational thermal efficiency and heat rates by the precise, coordinated control of the temperature, pressure and quality of this steam.
