According to Steve Cupples of Industrial Purification Systems, industry worldwide uses water in many different ways and in different amounts; therefore, water-saving technology is, in many cases, used in multiple applications. The commonalities, however, are that highly efficient water-saving techniques are proven to not only reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint but also to make huge savings on energy bills and improve production and performance.
Synthetic rubber is a common material used in virtually every industrial application and available in a range of compounds. Its versatility, resilience and dynamic properties make it an effective choice for applications involving shock absorption, sealing and fluid transportation. Although different rubber processing methods exist, extrusion remains a popular choice for many manufacturers because of the neat, uniform way extruded rubber products can be produced.
The use of pneumatic process control systems has been adopted by a variety of industries, and as the complexity of these control systems grows, so it becomes even more important to ensure high levels of reliability and integrity. However, not every system requires a huge valve island or bus communication to achieve the required level of automation. Neil Saunders looks at the common components and processes involved.
