Sales Opportunity: Wastewater Treatment

  • October 15, 2014

Industrial Wastewater Treatment covers the mechanisms and process used to treat waters that have been contaminated in some way by anthropogenic industrial or commercial activities prior to its release into the environment or its re-use. 

Most industries produce some wet waste although recent trends in the developed world have been to minimize such production or recycle such waste within the production process. However, many industries remain dependent on processes that produce wastewaters. 

Custom Teflon® Flared Fitting Case Study

  • September 23, 2014

Ultrapure water (UPW) is essential in the semiconductor industry. UPW is used in wafer production, standard wet cleans, and other wet processes such as some etch processes, solvent processes and chemical mechanical planarization (CMP), and rinses. Contamination such as particles, organic compounds, dissolved ions, and dissolved gases, even at the submicron level, results in damaged or defective product and rapidly escalating fabrication costs. That’s why every component in a UPW or de-ionized water (DI) system must be engineered to maintain the most demanding levels of cleanliness.

Material selection is critical – Teflon® is a good choice because it’s inert and therefore does not contaminate the process. Just as important as the material are the seams within the piping system. Every connection, no matter how it’s made, is a potential source of leaks and particulate or bacterial contamination.

Sales Opportunity: Liquified Natural Gas

  • September 18, 2014

Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) is a natural gas that has been converted to the liquid form for ease of storage or transport. It takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas. It is odorless, colorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive.

LNG achieves a higher reduction in volume than Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), making the energy density of LNG 2.4 times greater than that of CNG.

Sales Opportunity: Medical Device Manufacturers

  • July 18, 2014

The global medical device market will reach $440 billion by 2018, growing at about 4.4% per year, according to a new report from Evaluate Pharma. Contrast that with the prescription drug market, tabbed to grow at an annual rate of 2.5%, and device makers have reason for excitement.

Sales Opportunity: Bag Sealing Technology

  • June 25, 2014

Improving Bag Sealing Technology with More Customizable Products

With our fast paced society, consumer packaging is a vital component of contemporary living. Analysts forecast the Global Flexible Packaging market to grow at a CAGR of 4.95% from now until 2018. A key factor for this industry growth is the increase in the demand for convenience packaging.

Heat Sealing is the process of sealing one thermoplastic to another similar thermoplastic using heat and pressure. The direct contact method of heat sealing utilizes a constantly heated die or sealing bar to apply heat to a specific contact area or path to seal thermoplastics together. Heat sealing is used for many applications, including heat seal connectors, thermally activated adhesives, film media, plastic ports and foil sealing.

Fischbein Case Study

Ultrasonic Sealing for Snack Bags Saves Material

Ultrasonic seals of metallic foils are peelable starting at widths of 7mm. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the overall amount of the packaging material.  Heat seals typically have a seal width of 15 to 24mm. The percentage of the area of a typical heat seal is approximately 8% to 12% of the package. This can be reduced by 50% when sealing with ultrasonics.

Sales Opportunity: Chemical Injection Skids

  • March 6, 2014

A Chemical Injection System is a piece of equipment that is designed to inject various chemicals into a system, usually to dilute solutions facilitate process flows. They can function continuously or intermittently and are used in a wide range of applications such as Well Cleaning, Oil Recovery, Corrosion Prevention, Pipeline Flow and much more.

There are many advantages to Chemical Injection Systems; they reduce downtime, they are safer and more effective and efficient compared to non-skid mounted units.
