A polymer services company installs several load-cell-based loss-in-weight feeders to automate its ingredient-feeding process and eliminate problems caused by manually handling and feeding the ingredients.
Cleaning with a high-performance, explosion-proof vacuum is critical to help prevent an explosion at your facility. The Nilfisk CFM EXP line of high-performance, electric explosion-proof, and pneumatic intrinsically safe vacuums with advanced filtration technology safely captures all of the combustible materials dispersed in your plant — everything from fuels and solvents to powders and food residue.
A large copper mine and refinery in the western United States had a dilemma. Their cell house, which contains over 1,500 cells, each holding more than 20,000 gallons of electrolyte, had experienced severe corrosion and structural degradation of the support columns for the tanks. These columns support the cells in their solvent extraction and electrowinning process. This process entails immersion of a stainless steel cathode or "starter plate" into the electrolyte.
In this application note MIDAC Corporation discusses how to reliably detect water in ammonia at 1 ppm to protect an expensive catalyst bed. The monitoring for water is required because there are many possible sources of water contamination and even as little as 10 ppm can ruin the expensive catalyst bed.
If you haven’t tested a variety of mixers during the last few years, forget all the rules you used to rely on to distinguish one mixer from another. According to the old rulebook, mixers fell into neat categories according to their capabilities and the requirements of your application. Once you identified the viscosity of your materials, for example, the shear required, and the target particle or droplet size, you could quickly narrow your equipment choices to one or two likely candidates. Well, those days are over.
With UV and visible spectrum capabilities, over 250 preprogrammed methods including the most common testing methods used, guided procedures, and integrated quality assurance software, the DR 6000 ensures you are ready to handle your comprehensive water testing needs.
Conveyors: Ideally suited for handling powders, granules, tablets, capsules, and other pharmaceutical items, vacuum pneumatic conveyors can also be designed to deliver closures and moderate-sized containers to filling lines.
