Excess flow valves (EFVs) and flow monitors are essential to the functionality of many liquid or gas systems. In spite of their importance, these components are often overlooked during a system’s design phase. Often, standard mass-produced EFVs and flow monitors simply don’t perform or fit in-line with expectations.
In the mid-1800s, the world experienced the third Cholera Pandemic. This time, the disease killed more than 23,000 people in Britain alone. No one knew where the disease was coming from and doctors couldn’t stop it.
High-quality, clean air is vital to life. Dirty and polluted air can cause serious harm to our health and environment. To ensure we are breathing in the healthiest air possible, several sources monitor air quality closely – and within the last ten years, these sources have discovered that air quality has been declining.
This blog post discusses ChemTec products for gas delivery systems. It covers excess flow valves, flow monitors and custom solutions from ChemTec.
Nitrogen gas is used in many applications and can be found in both industrial and commercial settings. A common method for producing nitrogen is a nitrogen generator. Using compressed air, an on-site nitrogen generator can make 99% pure nitrogen on demand for food preservation, beer crafting, metal forging, petroleum refining, and pharmaceutical manufacturing to name a few notable applications.
Dippin’ Dots, the novelty ice cream that has become a staple in amusement parks, malls, and theaters, recently announced they are now dipping into Cryogenics. This subsidiary known as Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics will offer its freezing technology to a variety of non-edible industries.
Cryogenics relies on a precise freezing methodology and requires equally precise equipment to get it right. ChemTec manufactures flow devices that help companies maximize safety, improve productivity, and in turn saves money.
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.
