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.
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.
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.
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.
