Nearly half a million Americans depend on a dialysis machine to replace functions their kidneys are unable to perform. Some are able to use a home dialysis machine while others rely on larger systems in hospital renal units. Stable rates of fluid flow are essential for safe and effective dialysis, making flow monitors an essential component of these machines.
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.
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.
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.
In most cases, a fire sprinkler system is the first responder when dealing with unexpected fires in residential and commercial buildings. As such, fire control systems are required to be installed in certain residential and commercial properties by a variety of local, state, and federal regulations. Those regulations are increasing, and the automatic fire control system industry is pegged for robust expansion through 2020.
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.
It’s no secret, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the food and beverage industry is banking on it. In a recent study by the NPD Group in Chicago, breakfast and morning snack consumption in and away from home is forecasted to grow by 5 percent through 2019.
Accompanying that growth is the increasing demand for easy-to-eat breakfast snacks. As more consumers eat on-the-go meals, the consumer packaged good industry is responding by creating more wholesome breakfast items in small convenient, single-serve packs.
What does that mean for you in 2017? Packaging of items like this will be even more important and ChemTec’s team of experts can customize solutions for you. Here’s how:
