This document outlines six real-world ORP applications, in non-technical style, that will give the uninitiated reader a basic idea of the useful roles of ORP instrumentation.
Rising raw material costs, environmental sustainability, and a global economy are some of the future challenges for the chemical industry. In order for production processes to run at peak performance, highly accurate, rugged, and easily integrated field instrumentation are needed.
Energy costs continue to impact the bottom line at many industrial plants. Wherever possible, heat exchangers are used to capture waste heat for reuse in other areas. The capital cost of a heat exchanger is compensated by reduced fuel costs over the lifetime of the heat exchanger.
Maintaining the proper concentration of dissolved oxygen in an aeration basin is necessary to keep microorganisms alive for breakdown of the organic waste. This can only be efficiently accomplished by using an accurate, continuously measuring system.
Eriez Tramp Iron Grate in Housings (TGH) incorporate Erium ceramic or rare earth magnet material to remove ferrous contamination from free-flowing products as it cascades through multiple grate rows within a custom manufactured housing.
Sauereisen Acidproof Concrete No. 54 SG – Structural Grade is a potassium silicate castable refractory for chemical-resistant construction of containment pads, trenches, walls, and other structural support columns or bases.
