In the Hydrogen Industry, it is necessary to be prepared for the many standards and regulations attached to production, distribution, and applications of flow valves. These standards may change from time to time based on scientific discoveries (or even political will), but they are meant to minimize risk to everyone who works with hydrogen flow valves. To achieve compliance, safety, and efficacy, companies need to be clear on what’s expected of them.
The end of 2017 is closing in on us, and with it comes the time to verify and improve your ChemTec products performance before the New Year. To help you through this process, we’re going to offer up a few tips to make the most of your annual maintenance this year.
For years golf courses and large parks have used flow sensors to cut down on their water waste. As water is becoming increasingly expensive more and more businesses and individuals alike are looking for ways to reduce their water usage. Thankfully, at the same time water has been increasing in price and the price of quality flow sensors has been going down. This allows anyone to affordably access these water-saving devices.
Correctly calibrating the pump in a swimming pool can sometimes be tricky. If the speed is too high, the pool owner will be wasting energy by circulating the water in the pool more than is necessary. If it’s too low, the pump may not be able to thoroughly clean the pool, leading to dirty and stagnant water. Fortunately, flow meters are a simple solution that can help your customers find the correct flow speed for their pumps.
Summer heat may have come to an end (in some areas), but air conditioning systems are a necessary need year round for a number of industrial and commercial applications. Unlike the air conditioning unit you’d find at your home, large office building and industrial plants require a much larger scale A/C machine. In many cases, these air circulation and conditioning machines function with heavy duty chillers or cooling towers, and that requires extra care and monitoring to keep them running in good condition.
Cryogenics and Refrigeration
Cryogenics is a type of science that deals with the production and effects of extremely low temperatures typically produced through the Joule-Thomson effect. This is a process that utilizes temperature, volume, and even pressure to create these low temperatures. In order for temperatures to be considered cryogenic, they need to be at least -1000C, however, there is disagreement being that according to some other sources they must go as low as -1500C. At these temperatures, gases turn into liquid with the ability to serve many different purposes.
Heat pumps are gaining popularity in a world that is concerned about reducing carbon footprints, and the global market is expected to grow by 7 percent from 2015-2022. Much of this growth will be led by the European market, which is particularly suited to heat pumps because of its moderate temperatures throughout much of the year. North America is forecasted to be the second-fastest growing market during this time frame. This means there’s never been a better time to learn how ChemTec’s FAV Series Adjustable Flow Monitor is the ideal heat pump accessory.
Conserving water is rapidly gaining importance across many industries, but especially for companies that manufacture semiconductors and similar high-technology products. Smart businesses pay close attention to the recent rise in water conservation rebates, grants, and tax reliefs from the government. But for more direct results they closely manage their machinery, such as wet benches, that has high water consumption levels. This often means choosing efficient components like ChemTec’s 125 Series Adjustable Flow Monitors.
With energy such a highly charged subject these days, it’s important to know how and where different forms are being utilized. Take cell phone towers — companies today are switching from backup batteries and electrical generators to longer-lasting, lower maintenance hydrogen fuel cells. While the benefits are high, hydrogen is still highly combustible and therefore equipment designers and installers must meet additionally demanding requirements. That increases the reliance on products like the High Pressure Excess Flow Valve (HPEFV) from ChemTec.
Nearly half a million Americans depend on a dialysis machine to replace functions their kidneys are unable to perform. Some are able to use a home dialysis machine while others rely on larger systems in hospital renal units. Stable rates of fluid flow are essential for safe and effective dialysis, making flow monitors an essential component of these machines.
