Safety First

Safety First For too many companies, process safety management isn't important until it's too late and someone has been injured on the job, forcing a re-evaluation of business as usual. Part of the problem is the efficacy of the system: how well is the equipment or processing line installed, implemented, and maintained? And, how thoroughly are employees trained? Find out the four phases that can help you reduce your risk, from developing an overarching plan based on standards and protocols to collaborating with people to monitor ongoing improvements. Does your company have a sound safety plan, or is there an accident just waiting to happen?

Controlling Critical Coolant

Controlling Critical Coolant Machines that do deep-hole drilling typically produce holes with depth-to-diameter ratios ranging from 5-to-1 to 300-to-1, all in a single pass. A steady flow of high pressure coolant is critical, both to remove heat and the chips left behind by the drilling process. One company is using an ultrasonic flowmeter to ensure the smooth flow of coolant, preventing costly damage to the machines.

Clearing the Air

Clearing the Air To maintain the quality of the drugs they manufacture, pharmaceutical companies must ensure that the fumes from laboratory operations don't contaminate their controlled environments. Some companies are managing their exhaust by implementing mixed-flow impeller systems with filtration modules. These systems reduce energy costs and enhance safety by reducing the risk of re-entrainment.

Improve Your Power Factor

Improve Your Power Factor Power factor correction capacitors can help chemical processors and manufacturers reduce electricity costs. These capacitors optimize energy use to avoid premium rates charged by electric companies. Even though the devices can reduce electricity bills, problems such as loose connectors can make them operate inefficiently. To make the most of them, be sure to inspect and clean the capacitors regularly.

What's Holding Back the Digital Factory?

What's Holding Back the Digital Factory? Manufacturers and processors are edging closer to realizing the Digital Factory, an industrial environment that accommodates increasingly shorter production cycles and dynamic automation setups. To make this transformation, engineers need PLCs and PACs with greater programmability and enhanced intercommunications, simpler graphical programming tools, and the means to deploy control software throughout all production operations, including remote and wirelessly connected processes.

Converging Conveyors

Converging Conveyors A manufacturer of high-purity chemicals needed a method to convey five separate bulk products to one mixing system. To meet the requirements of their specific recipe, the company used two conveyors, one to route a set of materials to a wet blender and another to send the remaining materials to a dry blender. A diverter valve sends each bulk material to its proper destination.

Reducing with Roller Grinders

Reducing with Roller Grinders Breaking larger solids into smaller particles can be a messy, costly process. To reduce cost, some companies are turning to roller grinders to crush and separate bulk solids. Some of the other benefits include a reduction in dust and minimal heat generation since the materials are fractured using the shearing action of the roll surface on the material rather than high speed impact.

Magnets Separate Fine Materials

Magnets Separate Fine Materials The creation of pharmaceuticals, speciality chemicals, and ceramic and metallurgical components require working with high-purity materials. To ensure the quality of those feed-stocks, some companies are using magnetic filters and separators to clean out all kinds of undesirable particles. The magnetic filters can be used in a wet or dry process and use an electromagnetic solenoid coil encased in steel to ensure a uniform field.

Superior Conventional Screening

Superior Conventional Screening A quarry with a dedusting problem turned to a screen manufacturer to come up with a new solution. Rather than specify a whole set of specialty equipment to manage dust, the vendor came up with a unique way to use conventional screening components. The screens are mounted on a framing system and are made of a flexible rubber material that minimizes blinding.
