Industrial cooling towers are large consumers of water. With water scarcity in certain parts of the world, effective water treatment that allows increased water reuse is a driving factor influencing when and where to use cooling towers.
Improving production technologies to optimize production cycles, increase machinery efficiency, reduce ingredient waste and intermediate products, and increase the shelf life of the final product without compromising quality remain key objectives of the food and beverage industry.
Temperature is a critical — and constantly measured — controllable process variable for engineers with applications ranging from water feed to a boiler to the temperature inside an induction furnace. In fact, temperature measurement in industrial processes covers a diverse universe of needs.
Shell-and-tube designs incorporate fixed or floating tubesheets, fixed or removable tube bundles and expansion joints as needed to create an effective heat transfer vessel. Gain a better understanding of the TEMA types to improve your selection process.
Among the most common types of heat transfer equipment used in industrial applications are the various configurations of shell-and-tube heat exchangers. Suitable for a range of pressure and temperature conditions, shell-and-tube heat exchangers can be robust enough to handle corrosive or even lethal fluids.
Our Cooling Capabilities on System Chillers offers a side-by-side comparison of system chiller makers to help you narrow your choices. Read on to learn about those chillers that must be hard-wired, moved with equipment (rather than human power) and have more than 5 tons of cooling capacity.
Linde started up a new carbon dioxide (CO2) plant in Freeport, Texas, that will recycle the crude CO2 supplied from an MEGlobal process. The crude CO2 will be purified and liquefied into commercial grades to serve customers in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, where it is used to carbonate drinks, as well as to freeze, chill, preserve and package food.
Danfoss is accepting entries for its 11th annual EnVisioneer of the Year award. The competition recognizes North American end users, building owners, municipalities, equipment manufacturers and contractors who have introduced a new product, opened a new facility or invested in a building or system upgrade in the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy or environmental savings.
Two U.S. companies collaborated to provide a closed-loop extraction system for the cannabis industry. The all-in-one extraction system makes cannabis processing safer and more efficient while yielding high-quality CBD/THC oil.
According to an engineering project lead, a cooling unit installed on the roof of Sandia National Laboratories’ supercomputer center saved 554,000 gallons of water during its first six months of operation last year.
The coronavirus and the COVID-19 disease it causes have reshaped how we live and how we do business. Though the situation is fluid as conditions continue to change, manufacturing remains an essential business in many locations. Maintaining the supply chain and access to necessary equipment will help support essential manufacturing operations.
ORCA Cold Chain Solutions, a subsidiary of ISOC Holdings Inc., reportedly opened the Philippines’ first fully automated cold storage facility in Bagumbayan, Taguig City. It has the capacity for 20,000 pallets.
A M King, an integrated design-build firm, started renovation of an existing shell building for Martin’s Distribution Inc., a Charlotte-based food distributor. The revamped facility will allow the company to capitalize on growing demand from its customers for fresh, quality products.
Trammell Crow Co. completed construction of the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s corporate headquarters and distribution facility in East Point, Ga. It includes 69,931 ft2 of cold storage and 186,157 ft2 of warehouse space.
