Choosing the most cost and energy efficient process control panel cooling solution from the many types available requires knowledge of their individual strengths and weaknesses, and the ability to match that to the operational environment.
A waste heat recovery system at the Greater New Haven Water Pollution Control Authority is expected to produce 4.4 million kW hours of electricity per year.
A look at how pressure, temperature and other operating variables affect the performance of heat exchangers.
Two OEM engineers explain how modular conveyor technology reduces the high maintenance and modification costs often associated with traditional conveyor systems.
Spiroflow builds a tailor-made low-loading bulk bag discharge system for a facility that demands a mini footprint, plus the power to operate within hazardous environments.
Unlike conventional steam generators, CFB power uses fluidization technology to mix and circulate the fuel particles with limestone as they burn in a low temperature combustion process.
As part of its compliance with a PepsiCo corporate mandate on resource conservation, the Quaker Oats Bridgeview Division food-manufacturing plant installed two Miura Boiler LX200 gas-fired steam boilers.
Investing in automation is one way to outmaneuver competitors and emerge from this recession in a much stronger strategic position.
Differentiation of monkey embryonic stem cells into hepatocytes and mRNA expression of cytochrome p450 enzymes responsible for drug metabolism: comparison of embryoid body for...January 21, 2010 12:38 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Comments
We investigated the effects of embryoid body (EB) forming conditions on the expression of hepatocyte marker genes such as alpha-fetoprotein, albumin and CYP7A1 in cells cultured on Matrigel-coated plates for 15 d. The expression levels of hepatocyte marker genes in the cells...
Six of the most common bad assumptions about hearing protection for noise-exposed workers.
A simplified, rapid, selective HPLC method for determining five cytochrome P450 (CYP) probe drugs in single run is described. The five specific probe substrates of caffeine, chlorzoxazone, tolbutamide, metoprolol and midazolam, together with the internal standard diazepam, were...
The depleting petroleum storage and increasing environmental deterioration are threatening the sustainable development of human societies. As such, biofuels and chemical feedstocks generated from renewable sources are becoming increasingly important. Although previous efforts...
Inappropriate prescribing (IP) in older patients is highly prevalent and is associated with an increased risk of adverse drug events (ADEs), morbidity, mortality and healthcare utilisation. Consequently, IP is a major safety concern and with changing population demographics, it...
While rare-earth magnets are very efficient at removing unwanted contamination, they can be very dangerous to maintenance personnel if not handled properly.
Flow-injection determination of retinol and tocopherol in pharmaceuticals with acidic potassium permanganate chemiluminescence.January 19, 2010 6:38 pm | by Anal Sci | Comments
A simple and rapid flow-injection method is reported for the determination of retinol, its derivatives and alpha-tocopherol by its enhancement effect on a potassium permanganate-formaldehyde chemiluminescence system in an acidic medium. Linear calibration graphs were obtained...
