All Signs Point To Mapping — Safety Standards Shine Light On Gas And Flame Detection
Net Safety's Raymond MacLeod discusses mapping gas and flame detector coverage in industrial applications in ProcessWest Magazine. Choosing reliable detection equipment, designing and implementing safety systems and incorporating quantifiable data into the placement and positioning of safety equipment is a challenge for plants. The best approach involves experience, industry standards, risk assessment and the use of quantitative hazard studies. Read more.
An application report is now available from Anton Paar that describes how density and sound velocity are used to determine the concentration of sulfuric acid and oleum in various industrial processes. The report covers an overview of sulfuric acid production, typical installations, theory of measurement, along with a summary of the benefits of measuring on-line.
Alumina is more correctly known as aluminum III oxide. Porous aluminas are produced from sintering the material at elevated temperatures; alumina in a pellet form is widely used in science and industry to trap out unwanted water and other vapors.
In these days of volatile oil prices, the search for new sources of energy is leading industry to Alberta, Canada, and its vast oil sands. Typically, the mining of oil sands is a more costly process than traditional oil drilling. However, the rise in crude prices has made the Alberta oilfields a viable source.
The meter2di FPD220 is dual-chamber orifice fitting suitable for fiscal (custody transfer) applications. These fittings enable the orifice plates to be inspected and/or replaced without removing the fitting itself from the pipeline.
