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.
In this technical bulletin, Master Chemical highlights the visible part of the Hazardous Materials Index System or HMIS. This system is used by the industry to quickly communicate health and safety information in a uniform visual manner to the end user of the product. This voluntary system was created to provide a quick reference to critical health and safety information.
The Hazard Communication Standard requires that companies using hazardous materials maintain a file of the current material safety data sheets (MSDSs) for all the materials listed in their hazardous material inventories. It is the user’s responsibility to request that the organisation supplying the product delivers the current MSDS to them. Master Chemical maintains pdf copies of the most current MSDSs on its website for customers.
This guide from Sensonics explains the basics of vibration and expansion measurement techniques relating to turbine and auxiliary plant equipment. The guide starts with an introduction to the basic transducers available for plant mounting with associated options and details the various measurement techniques used as standard throughout the power industry.
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.
This paper from Apex Supply Chain Technologies examines the prospective economic and operating benefits for implementation of point-of-work (POW) automation technology (sometimes called point-of-work vending) to streamline and control the distribution of direct and indirect materials at work facilities.
The Hazard Communications Standard is a federal regulation that sets forth what minimum levels of information to provide to employees and how that information is to be delivered. This bulletin from Master Chemical presents the responsibilities of the standard.
Year after year, costly damages occur in manufacturing and processing plants. The main reason for this is the penetration of oil and germs into the compressed air system which is detected too late, and uncontrolled advancement to the points of consumption. However, according to this technical article from Beko Technologies, there is a highly efficient dual strategy to prevent this maximum credible compressed air accident.
