Keep update with latest news on chemical engineering industry and plant operations through Chemical Engineering magazine. In May 2014 Issue, the magazine will take a special look at piping-system leak detection and monitoring for the CPI, unlocking the secrets of plate-and-frame heat exchangers, new class of polymers that utilize CO2 and more.
Piping-System Leak Detection and Monitoring for the CPI
Eliminating the potential for leaks is an integral part of the design process that takes place at the very onset of facility design
Centrifugal Pump Maintenance
Optimal functioning of centrifugal pumps over time depends on sound maintenance practices. The following material represents tips and guidelines for routine preventive and protective maintenance for centrifugal pumps…
Unlocking the Secrets of Plate-and-Frame Heat Exchangers
An understanding of the design, sizing, specification and installation of plate-and-frame heat exchangers is necessary to evaluate vendors’ proposed designs
Fired Heaters: Best Practices for the Control of Fuel Gas
Adopt these practices to ensure new project success, and to achieve safe control and reliable, efficient operation going forward
Three Insights for Managing Legacy Data
Safety, maintenance and acquisitions efforts demand rigorous engineering due diligence and access to complete, accurate engineering information
A new class of polymers that utilize CO2
A new plastic made from CO2 and butadiene has been synthesized by Kyoko Nozaki and her research group at the University of Tokyo (Tokyo, Japan)
Renewable surfactant can replace solvents for cleaning
A nonionic surfactant that is derived from renewable chemicals can outperform common solvents in a range of applications, including industrial cleaning, adhesive removal, degreasing, paint and coating removal, and others.
A single-filter vacuum receiver for dilute-phase conveying
This new vacuum receiver separates solids from air streams using filter media and gravity, and is suitable for applications in which materials contain small particles that are prone to dusting or when dust containment is a primary requirement.
