The CDC estimates that every year roughly 48 million Americans gets sick from a foodborne illness. These illnesses are abundant but thankfully preventable, which is why food and beverage manufacturers follow rigorous equipment cleaning and sanitizing regimens. There are countless cleaning and sanitizing systems, so ChemTec created the 500 Bypass Series. This highly customizable flow monitor allows manufacturers to maintain high standards with excellent ease of use.
Whether its chemical, medical, aerospace, water treatment, semiconductor, food/beverage, or pharmaceutical, gas analyzers play a vital role in their manufacturing processes. Managing gas concentration, flow rates, and purity is essential for efficiency and safety. Gas analyzers verify the amount of a particular or multiple gases.
Solar power technology continues advancing at a rapid rate in 2017. Popularity in solar power has increased drastically within the last couple of years due to breakthroughs in reducing the price per kwh in solar panels and solar power storage technology. One of the most notable breakthroughs came when Elon Musk, Chairman for SolarCity, announced a Solar Roof which turns any home into a solar-powered building where roof tiles are miniature solar panels.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a widely utilized process that affects many aspects of our daily lives. For example, RO helps food manufacturers concentrate fruit juice, aquarium operators maintain their tanks, and cities and campers produce drinking water from something dirty or salty. It’s difficult to make it through a day without using a product created with reverse osmosis.
Lasers were once a spotlight for science fiction, but now they are streamlining the manufacturing industry. Recent projections are now showing “Fiber Laser Cutting” is on the rise and expected to now become a key player in the Ultra Hard Material Cutting Machine market, which is expected to be a 1.8 billion dollar industry by 2024.
It’s no secret, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the food and beverage industry is banking on it. In a recent study by the NPD Group in Chicago, breakfast and morning snack consumption in and away from home is forecasted to grow by 5 percent through 2019.
Accompanying that growth is the increasing demand for easy-to-eat breakfast snacks. As more consumers eat on-the-go meals, the consumer packaged good industry is responding by creating more wholesome breakfast items in small convenient, single-serve packs.
What does that mean for you in 2017? Packaging of items like this will be even more important and ChemTec’s team of experts can customize solutions for you. Here’s how:
Starting in 2017, the U.S. Federal Government will require new safety valves for gas lines serving multiple homes, duplexes and small multi-family buildings, and shops ranging from doctor’s offices and shopping centers to banks. This regulation was already mandated in 2009 for single-family homes, after decades of reported catastrophic damages caused by ruptured gas-lines that likely could have been reduced or prevented by this technology.
This means that ChemTec’s Excess Flow Valve technology can be even more important to you in 2017.
It may sound like something from sci-fi movies, but cryogenic delivery systems are a vital part of a wide range of industries. From food and drink packaging to biological sample storage, companies across several industries rely on systems that supply liquified gasses chilled to cryogenic temperatures. These systems deliver nitrogen to packaging lines, provide the low temperatures needed for MRI machines, semiconductor processes like molecular beam epitaxy and more.
None of these systems can work effectively without flow monitors and excess flow valves to ensure stable fluid flows in cryogenic processes. That’s where ChemTec comes in. With complete control over our design and manufacturing processes, we can create custom equipment that fits any industry need.
Even though they’re essential in many gas or liquid systems, flow monitors and excess flow valves (EFV’s) are often overlooked during the design phase. Too late it’s realized that standard catalog items don’t fit quite the way expected or don’t perform exactly as needed. The result is either last minute changes that add cost or acceptance of suboptimal performance for the life of the system.
At the last count the US had 4,269 craft breweries, of which 2,397 were classed as microbreweries. A microbrewery is defined as an operation producing less than 15,000 barrels per year and selling more than 25% of that off-site. One barrel holds enough beer to fill around 330 12 ounce bottles so a brewer could fill nearly five million bottles a year yet still qualify as “micro.”
To complete the picture, there are also 1,650 brew pubs, (places that brew and sell mostly on-site,) and 178 regional breweries. A regional produces more than a microbrewery but less than 6 million barrels per year. So without doing any math it’s apparent a lot of breweries are filling millions of bottles with a glorious array of traditional and innovative new brews.
