Dixon offers a selection of Bradford stainless steel butterfly valves for use in hygienic process systems.
The advantages of using adhesives over mechanical fasteners have been well documented. They include distribution of load and stress over wider surface areas, elimination of joint fatigue, improved impact resistance, reduction in finishing, and aesthetic enhancement. According to this white paper from Intertronics, design engineers will earn the gratitude of their production engineering colleagues if they can specify or allow for a light-curing adhesive.
There are many advantages to packaging two-component adhesives in convenient cartridges for use with static mixers. Two-component adhesive end users want their cartridges to be clean and free of leaks with the capability to dispense the adhesive to fit the intended application. This paper concentrates on the ways filling a cartridge can affect dispensing performance.
For many automated fluid dispensing processes, high-speed jetting technology is a new and innovative alternative to traditional, needle-based contact dispensing. Because high-speed jetting is non-contact (the jet valve never contacts the product or surface), it offers a higher degree of flexibility and can be used in a wider variety of applications that otherwise would require a costly Z-axis system with height-sensing and positioning functionality. True high-speed jetting is made possible ...
When fabricating and specifying hose assemblies, Dixon Group Europe recommends users think ‘S.T.A.M.P.E.D’ and consider the following: size; temperature; application; media; pressure; ends; Dixon.
If you work with industrial chemicals, materials or solvents then you may have heard of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). The ACGIH is a scientific, but non-governmental body of industrial hygienists that publishes Threshold Limit Value (TLV) opinions on chemicals such as n-propyl bromide, the base solvent for EnSolv formulations. These TLV opinions are not held to the same standards as limits set by an organisation such as OSHA in the US, but are ...
This video explores the role of innovation in the home and personal care (HPC) sector and its importance for the future, both for the customer and the supplier.
Steam is used in a range of industries for a variety of processes, from a basic small heating circuit to large-scale hygienic steam production, involving specialist equipment that needs to be designed and maintained properly to ensure efficient and reliable operation of the process equipment. Bürkert UK’s Ian Webster looks at some of the basic calculations that should be understood by design and maintenance engineers in order to achieve a safe and efficient process.
Generating power can mean the use of a diverse range of technology, from a simple coal-fired facility to the latest in nuclear plants. But all have one thing in common: the need to control heat and produce steam — and this generally necessitates using large volumes of process water. This article from Industrial Purification Systems discusses the use of modern filtration technology as a means to improving both heat transfer efficiencies and plant protection.
