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.
Our engineers are developing a thermal mass flow meter for gas flow evaluation. The 3D model to the right shows what is looks like, for now. We’re looking for your suggestions and needs as a customer.
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 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.
