Parker Hannifin Corp., a global provider of motion and control technologies, opened an advanced manufacturing learning and development center at its Corporate Technology Ventures facility in Macedonia, Ohio.
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.
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.
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.
The Ethernet/IP to Modbus-TCP linking device allows users to connect devices on Modbus-TCP to a Rockwell ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC. Users will benefit from the integration to Rockwell’s Studio5000 Logix Designer because all configurations are made from inside the software.
The International Conference is a great opportunity to bring together people from Industry, Utilities and Academics and Research Centers involved in Air Cooling Process activities such as Research, Development and Operation.
