When it comes to process cooling, few industries rely on the application of heat as much as the sintering process in powder-metal manufacturing. With temperatures in the high heat section of a sintering furnace reaching several thousand degrees Fahrenheit, the parts must be cooled dramatically before being handled by operators.
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.
Water often plays a key role in production. The process of manufacturing paper is dependent upon the uninhibited flow of filtered water. Maintaining a water-delivery system can prove costly when the system is outdated or simply not fit for the application at hand.
KOST USA introduces BioChill®, the next generation of heat transfer fluid solutions. These fully formulated, propylene glycol-based products are manufactured from a 100% renewable, bio-based feedstock and can effectively replace the petroleum-derived propylene glycol traditionally used in heat transfer fluids.
Hansen Technologies introduces the MVP13 valve station to the MVP Multi-Valve Platform product line. The MVP13 offers the enhanced control functionality of a solenoid or pulse-width expansion valve in a minimized, lightweight valve body.
FTI is redefining tank, vessel and piping system protection with high-quality technology. Extol of Ohio Inc., FTI’s approved fabricator, manufactures the fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) cladding that provides mechanical abuse resistance, improves corrosion protection and reduces construction and life-cycle costs.
In 2010, Dynalene was approached by Therma-Hexx LLC of Portsmouth, N.H., to provide a coolant for their thermaPAVER® product, which uses solar thermal energy to heat swimming pools, cool pavers and walkways, domestic hot water, and snow melt systems (Fig. 1).
