Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis

  • February 17, 2017

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.

Laser Cutting Is Making Waves

Laser Cutting is Making Waves

  • January 13, 2017

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.

On-the-go Breakfasts Show Growth Into 2017

On-the-go Breakfasts Show Growth into 2017

  • December 15, 2016

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:

New Regulations Mean Opportunity For Excess Flow Valves

New Regulations Mean Opportunity for Excess Flow Valves

  • November 5, 2016

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.

Creating The Best Cryogenic Delivery Systems

Creating the best cryogenic delivery systems

  • October 15, 2016

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.

Avoid Compromises With Customized Flow Monitors And Excess Flow Valves   

Avoid Compromises with Customized Flow Monitors and Excess Flow Valves   

  • September 28, 2016

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.

Beer, Brewing, And Flow Monitoring

Beer, Brewing, and Flow Monitoring

  • July 14, 2016

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.

Food Safety And UHP Fluid Handling Components

Food Safety and UHP Fluid Handling Components

  • June 24, 2016

No one expects their food to make them sick but according to the CDC each year one in six Americans contracts food poisoning. Of those, some 128,000 will find themselves in hospital and 3,000 will die.

That’s reason enough for those in food and beverage processing and manufacturing to take hygiene very seriously. Plus, it’s good business practice. Negative publicity from a food contamination incident destroys consumer confidence and sales usually dive. Add on the direct cost of lost production, cleaning, and assessed fines and a business may not survive.

More CNG Fueling Stations For Florida

More CNG Fueling Stations for Florida

  • May 25, 2016

Who hasn’t been woken at dawn by a noisy trash collection truck? Sometimes it seems the rasping engine and whining hydraulics were designed specifically to rouse entire streets, but that’s changing. Growing numbers of trash collectors, like Waste Pro, are converting their fleets to compressed natural gas (CNG.) CNG offers several benefits, including quieter operation, but also raises some issues relating the refueling.

What It Takes To Upgrade A Bus Facility For CNG

What it Takes to Upgrade a Bus Facility for CNG

When the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) decided it was time for new buses they announced they’d be buying hybrid and CNG-powered vehicles. Bus operators, like the MBTA, are big fans of CNG even though it has some specialized handling requirements. That’s why incorporating CNG-fueled vehicles into a fleet creates some issues for maintenance and repair facilities.
