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.
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.
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.
Since the invention of “resistance welding” in 1886 by Elihu Thomson, welding has been an ever-evolving process that has forever changed the manufacturing industry. At the conclusion of 2016, it continues to show no signs of slowing down. The welding industry continues to be a highly competent and cost-effective method for joining metals and non-metals, including plastics and composites.
Lasers were once a spotlight for science fiction, but now they are streamlining the manufacturing industry. Recent projections are now showing “Fiber Laser Cutting” is on the rise and expected to now become a key player in the Ultra Hard Material Cutting Machine market, which is expected to be a 1.8 billion dollar industry by 2024.
Hospitals employ sophisticated equipment incorporating complex fluid handling and monitoring systems. This is because liquids and gases are used extensively to prepare devices and instruments for use, for cooling, heating, and for taking on essential bodily functions. Whenever fluids are pumped and filtered there’s a risk of leaks and blockage. Either will cause abnormal flows, and in the biomedical sector such failures can have serious consequences. Here’s an overview of four places where it’s important to know correct flow rates are being maintained.
Most problems start out small, and if spotted early, can fixed without too much expense. But leave them a while and the consequences escalate dramatically. Early detection stops small problems becoming much larger, and reduces waste.
