When most hear the terms “Internet of Things” or “IoT,” they think of readily available gadgets that can remotely control their home’s climate, play their favorite songs or automatically adjust their backyard smoker based on the temperature of the brisket.
Industries across the manufacturing spectrum — whether producing beverages, dairy products, petroleum, chemicals, plastics or electricity, to name a few — generate heat as a byproduct of the manufacturing process.
Many processes contain dirty gas streams that need to be cooled and cleaned prior to the next step in the process. This article will look at directly cooling these streams and methods for effectively removing contaminants from dirty gas streams.
For decades, cooling towers have provided an efficient means of cooling industrial process loops by providing the lowest operating temperatures available. At the same time, through the years, water-based cooling systems have evolved.
Globally, regardless of the industry, water and energy savings are becoming more important. This article explores the benefits of adiabatic cooling by looking at a new installation at a metal processing company that was scheduled to go online in late 2019. A case history helps illustrate how other industrial processors might take advantage of this technology.
Evaporative cooling has been around for centuries. Also called adiabatic cooling (particularly in Europe), evaporative cooling is the earliest form of air-side cooling known to man. In spite of that, it also is probably the least understood — and sometimes maligned — solution to cooling.
Model M2L minimizes downtime in case of a failed power cell. The modular design of the inverter allows the operator to follow a few steps to replace a failed power cell with a spare power cell and have it back up and running quickly.
The 25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration (ICR 2019), which was held August 24-30 in Montreal, welcomed over 850 participants from 45 countries. The event also welcomed over 650 papers, nine workshops, 10 IIR Commission and Working Group meetings and four technical tours.
The Process Heating & Cooling Show is a conference and tradeshow that will bring together industrial manufacturing and engineering professionals to learn, connect, share and explore all things related to the process heating and cooling industries.
