Considered North America's largest process equipment and technology exposition, the 2007 Chem Show in New York, Oct. 30 through Nov. 1, will feature hundreds of innovative products and technologies from more than 600 leading suppliers. The following items offer a sneak peek at some of the many products to be exhibited.
Don't stop reading even if you're getting a feeling of déjà vu! We presented a special report in the July issue titled "10 Technologies You Shouldn't Miss," but this is different. This article highlights 10 more technologies that we believe you'll want to know about. Each one has an important feature in common with all the others innovation.
SprayCheck TW works from the exterior to verify and validate the operation of tank cleaning systems with no modification of the tank.
The Flex-Pro A3 peristaltic metering pump offers outputs to 33.3 gph/126 lph and output pressures to 125 psi/8.6 bar as well as automated ppm dosing and self priming against maximum line pressure.
The Sitrans LR 250 radar level transmitter features "Process Intelligence" advanced signal processing.
An innovative air recovery system is enabling PET plastic bottle manufacturers to recover air that has residual pressure, which saves CFMs and takes a big slice off their electric bill. Here's how they're making it work…
The DynoLAB LT is a low-cost, complete turn-key system for electric motor testing. It offers the test control and data acquisition capabilities required for basic electric motor testing as well as all the benefits of an AC motoring dynamometer but is priced up to 35 percent less than other systems.
The FlexMASSter ST98 thermal mass sensing flowmeter series now meets the Profibus-DP/-PA standards and includes its own Device Type Manager (DTM) software for use in large scale process and plant automation systems.
Solution providers from around the world will meet in Houston, TX, Oct. 2-4, for ISA Expo, where they will unveil their latest automation and control products.
Saving energy is an important issue from both an environmental and energy cost perspective. The key question is: How can a substantial and sustainable reduction of energy consumption be achieved? The most credible solution is to establish an understanding of how users consume their energy and make them responsible for it.
In a recent survey, we asked readers what they most want to find in the pages of CHEM.INFO magazine. Innovation was the top response. In fact, it was the most popular and passionate request. As a result, we have searched the marketplace for innovative ideas and have assembled this special report examining 10 cutting-edge technologies. We hope they help you bring innovation into your plant.
Oseco, Broken Arrow, OK, has issued the third edition of its CD catalog with expanded language capabilities and content.
The last couple of years have seen the introduction of an entirely new generation of diaphragm metering pumps. These pumps incorporate digital robotic-like technology to improve accuracy and process control, saving money by lowering the amount of chemicals used and reducing the number of pump sizes required by large users of dosing pumps.
Solution providers from around the world will come together in Houston, TX, Oct. 2-4 for ISA EXPO, considered to be North America's largest automation and control exhibition.
Labelmaster, Chicago, a manufacturer of regulatory and hazardous materials compliance products, has added 20 new products to its Spring Hazmat Source catalog, mostly in UN packaging, labels, placards/markings, and spill control.
Titan-OL systems provide real-time, multi-component extractive gas phase analysis for on-line and continuous multi-point analysis.
The UVX-300-GC luminescence sensor is billed as the first UV sensor with a calibration function. Calibration is made possible through proprietary software algorithms, and the UVX-300-GC UV has the computing power to run complex algorithms.
The CR-288 concentration monitor addresses a critical requirement for improved monitoring and control of liquid chemicals.
Gold is glittering in the fields of Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, and many other states, but it's not precious metal. It's corn destined to be processed into ethanol fuel. This boom, which began in the Midwest, is now spreading to many other sections of the country.
A limit alarm trip, known by many names, is a hardware device that monitors a process signal such as temperature, pressure, level, or flow and compares it against a preset limit. If the process signal moves to an undesirable high or low condition, the alarm activates a relay output to warn of trouble, provide on/off control, or institute an emergency shutdown.
The pressures to reduce costs and increase productivity in process manufacturing industries are unrelenting and are often labeled the top two enterprise-wide priorities for companies today. A seemingly logical consequence of the cost-cutting priority is the on-going practice of trimming operations and maintenance (O&M) staff allocations.
Ohio's Fairmount Minerals is one of the largest producers of industrial sand in the U.S., and its Illinois-based subsidiary, Wedron Silica, has been hard at work for more than a century. The sand is mined from the St. Peters Sandstone, which is a 200 million-year-old sand deposit that runs from Minnesota to Oklahoma.
Manufacturers do not need reminding that in today's litigious and safety conscious climate, a solid metal detection process is crucial. As they strive for greater automation and uptime, compliance with legislation and good manufacturing practice (GMP), manufacturers want a metal detector that does more than just prevent contamination.
For critical microweighing applications, the new ME36S promises a powerful combination of precision technology and ease of use.
