IN A HYPOTHETICAL world, if the Department of Energy (DOE) showed up at your plant to conduct an energy audit of the pump systems, what grade would you receive?
Do you get an A … or an F? Plant owners and managers are faced with balancing scores of urgent priorities every day—stock holders on one side demanding the plant run continuously to keep the profits high, and engineering (reliability) and maintenance on the opposite side screaming, “we need to shut down to fix the plant.”
CYCLONIC SEPARATION is a method of removing particulates from an air, gas or liquid stream, without the use of filters, through vortex separation.
When removing particulate matter from liquids, a hydrocyclone is used; while from gas, a gas cyclone is used.
A RESEARCH paper ‘Nanobubbles: Generation using a multiphase pump, properties and features in flotation’ has been published in Elsevier journal Minerals Engineering.
The importance of nanobubbles is now widely known, particularly their applications and potential in mineral processing.
FRENCH PUMP rental company Telstar and Siltbuster, a UK provider of water treatment solutions for the construction industry, are partnering to treat wastewater generated on the €23 billion Grand Paris Express (GPE) rail expansion scheme.
The GPE subway project includes the construction of 68 stations and over 120 miles of new track to improve the public transport network across the city.
THE RELATIONSHIP between irrigation systems and sustainability can be overlooked when users are focused on achieving stronger crop yields and keeping their systems up and running.
A recent guide from the Louisiana State University (LSU) Agricultural Center (AgCenter) opens with a brief exploration of the connections among irrigation maintenance and energy efficiency.
IN THIS ARTICLE we look forward to what the future holds for the process industries through the eyes of those working on the technology we’ll see introduced in the coming decades.
Now and in the future, process automation and digitalisation will continue to revolutionize our industrial processes. Insights from industry leaders give us a glimpse of what’s in store for the process industries of the future.
XYLEM ADDRESSED the challenge of ‘urban resilience’ by showcasing its portfolio of water technologies at WEFTEC at McCormick Place, Chicago from October 2-4.
Xylem’s range of water technologies can help communities to tackle critical water challenges across the water cycle and support sustainable water management.
A HIGH EFFICIENCY dairy effluent pump from NOV Mono has delivered significant benefits to an agricultural irrigation project in New Zealand.
The MonoTM progressing cavity pump has helped increase irrigation efficiency at a farm in Te Awamutu, on the country’s North Island.
NEXT GENERATION ADS can reduce air consumption for improved efficiency and reduced operating costs.
Successful industrial operations measure success in many ways – such as operational equipment efficiency, productivity and safety, to name a few. Almost always, they can be grouped into one of three categories:
MECHANICAL FACE seals are a complex combination of materials and design that form a system whose prime objective is maintaining the integrity of the pumping system, keeping what is inside where it belongs and preventing contamination from the outside.
