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.
Smart manufacturers that use any kind of metal casting or plastic molding systems, including everything from cars to mining equipment to refrigerators, all know one thing: Cooling processes are vital to increasing throughput, lowering energy costs and maximizing overall efficiency. And that means more money.
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.
Solar power technology continues advancing at a rapid rate in 2017. Popularity in solar power has increased drastically within the last couple of years due to breakthroughs in reducing the price per kwh in solar panels and solar power storage technology. One of the most notable breakthroughs came when Elon Musk, Chairman for SolarCity, announced a Solar Roof which turns any home into a solar-powered building where roof tiles are miniature solar panels.
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.
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.
