Louisiana-based supplier to the chemical industry tells how his company triumphed over Katrina
Size reduction mills are used widely throughout the pharmaceutical industry for the reduction of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) as well as bulk pharmaceuticals and excipients such as lactose and hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose.
The U.S. electronic product code standards entity, EPC Global U.S., has rolled out a spreadsheet software tool that will allow chemicals manufacturers to make dollars-and-cents evaluations of how RFID can improve their operations and bottom line.
Some talk of a tipping point while others refer to a bubble about to burst. The biofuels business has, without doubt, acquired a life of its own. That is hardly surprising.
Major railroads told federal regulators they are racing to add staff, locomotives and hundreds of miles of new track to meet what regulators and chemical producers fear may be a rail capacity crisis later this year. Michael Ward, president and chief executive of CSX, told the U.S.
'The propylene piping involved in this incident protruded into an open space, yet it had no impact protection.' Chemical Safety Board U.S.
Miniature three-way high flow piloting solenoid valves are designed to offer space and weight savings as well as reliability. Available in a single coil configuration, the compact valve weighs just 4 ounces and uses only 7.8 watts at 28 vdc.
Containment enclosures are designed to control the weighing and safe dispensing or sampling of powders to meet COSSH and GPM requirements.
The Micro 10 rocker isolation valve's envelope size is designed to be 40 percent smaller than comparable 16 mm designs, but with orifice diameters reduced by only 10 percent.
The Rotor Detection System (RDS) immediately alerts plant operators that metal-to-metal contact has occurred in rotary valve applications. The system monitors electrical isolation between the rotor and valve housing.
The FKL 15 and FKL 20 model positive displacement pumps feature a split-style gearbox for easier maintenance. Both are CIP-able with no performance loss. Additionally, their oil bath gearbox uses no bearing grease, reducing oil change-out to only every 4,000 hours.
The SPECTRACAP Oxygen Transmitter OMT355 is designed to monitor oxygen in industrial process gases. The unit can be flange-mounted directly into a process without sampling or sample conditioning equipment. This provides the user real time measurement data without sampling or sample switching delays.
Micro Motion F-Series meters offer 0.10 percent mass flow accuracy, 0.15 percent volume accuracy, 0.50 percent gas flow accuracy, and 0.001 g/cc density accuracy.
High-performance thermal units offer maximum transfer rates even with highly viscous, difficult-to-process materials. Used in a wide range of process applications, the heat exchangers require less space, less energy and less time to process.
