As water resources become increasingly stressed by drought and intensifying demand from competing uses, industries that use significant quantities of water will face greater pressure to
adopt water-efficiency strategies that can decrease fresh-water withdrawals. One approach that facilities can adopt to reduce their draw from these supplies — thus reducing stress on drinking
water reserves — is to use alternative makeup water sources.
Most catastrophic system failures are easily avoidable because they are linked to a negligent lack of maintenance. Consider a catastrophic fan failure at a Midwestern manufacturing plant that occurred on a Friday afternoon, grinding the weekend process to a halt and incurring labor to be billed out at weekend rates.
Most people think of coil cleaning as a building or facility prepares to turn on the air-conditioners for another season. Admittedly, spring is a perfect time to put such cleaning and maintenance at the top of the to-do list.
Many applications require water for cooling. Rotary evaporators, microscopes and spectrophotometers found in the laboratory can require cooling water. Industrial-scale applications such as semiconductor, additive manufacturing and extraction processes also typically require water for cooling.
Chances are, the pork sausage on your breakfast plate came home from the grocery store frozen. And if it is one of the big-name brands, chances are equally good that it was not processed by the company whose name is on the package. Instead, it was likely processed by a co-packer — a company that specializes in that particular product.
Some people may actually finish their to-do lists, but I’m not one of them. Don’t get me wrong — I would love to climb into bed knowing I did every last thing I wanted to that day. And I guess, to some degree, I do, but my to-do list is not done.
A food industry white paper from Linde LLC explains the use and advantages of advanced mixer chilling systems that can help food processors chill products with improved food safety, high efficiency and repeatability while reducing costs.
Electronics cooler is capable of passively transferring more than 11 kW of waste heat without power, noise or moving parts. The coolers utilize thermosiphon technology, which can move large amounts of waste heat efficiently.
CleanAire filter packs are designed to be mounted inline in the exhaust ducting from a fume hood or contaminant source up to 1500 cfm. The HEPA and carbon filter packs includes a galvanized steel housing with hinged and gasketed access door for filter changeout.
Line of internal gear pumps is designed for refrigeration ammonia recirculation applications. The cast iron, positive-displacement pumps offer safe, reliable operation for longer life under high pressure conditions.
Model TJ40G uses a high impact jet stream to clean tank residues and minimize the risk of product contamination. The four-nozzle rotary jet head also cleans tanks more quickly and using less water than static spray ball technology, according to the manufacturer.
Chiller with variable-speed compressor operates effectively between 10 and 100 percent of its rated capacity. The design applies variable-speed green compressor technology from the HVAC industry to produce energy savings over traditional hot gas bypass regulation.
