Steam Rules: The Future of Power Generation

  • April 15, 2015

Despite all the low energy lightbulbs and high efficiency appliances, demand for electricity is projected to increase over the next 25 years. More air conditioners will be installed in southern states to meet the needs of the growing population and more power will be needed for factories, shops and warehouses. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts that between 2014 and 2040 residential electricity usage will grow 21%, commercial use by 27% and industrial use by 30%.

Sales Opportunity: Car Wash Industry

  • April 1, 2015

We’ve all been through an automatic car wash at some point in our lives. We sit patiently inside the car while it sprays soap, scrubs, blasts and rinses the car right before our eyes. But have you ever take a moment to think about how the system works and how large the car wash industry actually is?

There are more than 150,000 retail car wash locations around the world, according to the International Carwash Association. The US car wash industry includes about 14,000 companies with a combined annual revenue of about $6 billion. There are some pressing issues confronting the global car wash industry including environmental concerns, water and gas prices. The profitability of car wash locations depends heavily on favorable location and efficient operation.

Pumps: Powering the World’s Industries

  • March 10, 2015

Pumps come in many shapes and sizes and have endless applications in manufacturing, energy, food processing and mineral mining. High flow pumps can take on some of the world’s toughest jobs. For example, barrel pumps transport crude oil at 700 degrees Celsius, centrifugal pumps can build islands and beaches and larger centrifugal pumps can move fluids at 200,000 gallons per minute. ChemTec’s specialty is in low flow valves and monitors, and for pumps, this means applications in sampling, hydraulic and cooling systems, applications we might encounter every day.

Hydrogen Safety and the NFPA

  • February 25, 2015

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is the world’s leading advocate of fire prevention and an authoritative source on public safety. The NFPA develops, publishes and disseminates consensus codes and standards intended to reduce the possibility and repercussions of fire and other risks. Did you know recently the NFPA updated their safety codes for hydrogen? It’s titled under, “NFPA 2: Hydrogen Technologies Code.”

A Custom Valve Might be the Least Expensive Option

  • January 12, 2015

Sometimes using standard items out of the product catalog makes life complicated. For example, a ChemTec customer wanted to install an excess flow valve (EFV) in a system with 2” diameter piping. The problem was, the EFV meeting the performance requirements had 3/4” diameter ports. This left them with two choices: reduce their pipework to the required diameter, or request a custom EFV with the performance of the standard unit but 2” ports.
