The very name conjures up visions of a dark, viscous goo that infiltrates every surface it settles upon – and that’s fairly close to accurate. Sludge is a kind of soft mud. It’s thick due to the mix of solid components, like the slimy mixture found at the bottom of a pond. Clearly, the substance lives up to the image its name portrays.
Water is becoming a precious commodity throughout the world, which may seem strange given that two-thirds of the Earth is covered in it. However, due to a heavy concentration of salt, most of the water on Earth is not very useful in its current form.
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.
About ChemTec’s Excess Flow Valves
ChemTec manufactures Excess Flow Valves (EFVs) for a variety of industries. Constructed of high-quality materials such as 316 stainless steel and brass and are designed with features intended to optimize the control and flow of liquids and gases. Not only does ChemTec manufacture EFV configurations that are ready-made for common industry applications, but ChemTec also has the ability to create custom EFVs to fit specific needs.
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.
Flow monitors are essential to a variety of industrial and commercial operations. The right monitor can ensure safety, consistency, and quality in even the most sensitive of applications. ChemTec makes the 500 BP Series for companies who need a durable flow monitor that they can count on time after time.
Die casting is the art of molding raw metal pieces to fit specific dimensions. The manufacturing process is flexible and versatile enough that the final product can be of any size, shape, or texture. The process of die casting has a number of moving parts that need to function perfectly to produce the final product. Understanding how flow meters, molds, and metals come together in die casting can give everyone a better appreciation of the industry and its role in the world.
