On offshore oil and gas platforms and vessels, a supply of fresh water is essential, not only for drinking but also to keep critical machinery and equipment operational. Rig managers, water quality managers and design engineers face several challenges when it comes to finding the right desalination solution for generating potable and ultra-pure water. Read what to consider before selecting a system.
Adding carbon dioxide to a beverage carries the risk of product contamination with potentially expensive consequences including off-flavors and odors, spoilage, product recalls and damaged reputation. Foul taste, odors and off-appearance will change the way the consumers view the product and may alter their decision to buy more of it — directly impacting the manufacturer’s bottom line. Read the steps food and beverage manufacturers should take to protect the quality of the carbon dioxide and ensure consumers consistently experience a high-quality, desirable product.
This blog examines the three traditional gas supply methods — liquid bulk, high-pressure gas cylinders and on-site gas generation — and reasons why plant managers should consider using an on-site nitrogen generator to maximize their productivity.
Read how the proper design and optimization of filtration systems will directly impact the efficient and reliable function and operational costs of downstream oil and gas processes: amine sweetening and glycol dehydration, hydrocracking, hydrotreating, and final product filtration.
Consumers’ expectations for high quality, healthy and conveniently accessible food products result in an ever-increasing demand on producers and packers. With growing public knowledge of the issues surrounding the use of chemicals and preservatives in food production, suppliers must seek alternative methods for food preservation. Learn why food grade compliant nitrogen offers a suitable solution.
The use of automation in running complex single-use processes has many benefits for engineering managers, such as improving process control and consistency, increasing speed, and reducing human error deviations. It also frees up time for highly skilled scientists to carry out more value-added activities, such as research and development. Read more benefits in this blog.
Many applications that involve nitrogen gas in the production process require varied volumes of gas to be delivered during peak and off-peak operation. Discover how a facility can realize substantial energy savings at off-peak times, maximizing sustainability and increasing performance and profitability with on-site gas generation vs. bulk liquid vessels and cylinder packs.
When sizing chillers for an application, it is necessary to ensure the unit adequately sized to handle maximum process loads in worst-case site conditions. Read about important factors that must be considered when sizing a chiller, including maximum ambient temperature, outlet water temperature, glycol concentration and elevation above sea level.
Single-use technology plays an integral part in nearly all bio-production processes, yet several challenges remain — challenges which are serious enough to delay or even stop the use of single-use technology. Here is Parker's summary of the five most critical challenges in the implementation of single-use technology.
Laboratories around the world require a reliable and consistent mixture of quality gases for a range of applications. In an environment where safety is paramount, gas generators provide a safe solution for using gases in the laboratory. Read more about how gas generators ensure a safe working environment.
