Exploring The Impact Of Air On Bulk Powder Properties By Tim Freeman, Freeman Technology
In this editorial, which continues the series on variables that can impact powder behavior, I'm examining the influence of air. In some unit operations, such as pneumatic conveying or fluid-bed processing, air is intentionally introduced. However, in many instances the amount of air in a powder is both unknown and uncontrolled. Read more.
Greenhouse Gas Flow Monitoring Helps In Global Climate Change Effort By Jack Koeken, sr. member technical staff, Fluid Components International (FCI) Europe
It is widely accepted now that rising levels of waste greenhouse gases (GHG) that result from industrial production and the everyday living practices of billions of people are the primary causes of global warming. Methane and other GHGs have been targeted as a primary area of concern and regulatory activity.
5 Scary Facts About Product Recalls By Acsis Inc.
During the height of holiday gift giving, most people aren't thinking about product recalls. It's definitely on the minds of manufacturers, though. Data such as serialization, lot, and batch numbers prove invaluable in the event of a recall. In the excitement of unwrapping presents, however, UPC codes, product registration cards, and other packaging information often get tossed in the trash.
Colder's chemical handling products are designed to meet the need for high-purity quick couplings that provide instant, contaminant-free, non-spill disconnects of pressurized fluid lines carrying highly aggressive chemicals such as acids, caustics, and solvents.
Catalysts are used in a variety of applications from the production of consumer goods to the protection of the environment. Chemical adsorption analysis techniques provide much of the information necessary to evaluate catalyst materials in the design and production phases, as well as after a period of use.
Tablet coating processes can be subdivided into different types. Sugar coating, for example, provides a combination of insulation, taste masking, smoothing of the tablet core, coloring, and modified release. Film coating, on the other hand, is usually a single-stage process and easily adaptable for controlled release dosage forms.
