Using a dry fume scrubber to remove exhaust gases

By |Uncategorised|

Fume scrubbers are used to control chemical fumes that are problematic and cannot be released into the atmosphere. Examples include fumes from chemical storage, fumes from combustion and fumes from chemical processing. In the case of exhaust fumes and combustion gases, dry scrubbers are specified because they are simpler than the wet variety and produce

The Crucial Role of LEV Exhaust Systems in Industry

By |Uncategorised|

LEV systems play a crucial role in industry because they control the dust and fumes produced from job processes. Lots of jobs across lots of industries involve work processes that generate dust, fumes and vapours. If these are not controlled properly, they create poor working conditions that lead to health problems like lung scarring and

Generating energy from waste: how it works

By |Uncategorised|

If you have municipal solid waste you can generate energy from this waste and produce electricity, gas and/or heat. A waste-to-energy (or energy-from-waste) plant converts solid waste into energy and sometimes other by-products. Here’s an introduction to the technologies, processes and how it works: How it works There are several ways to generate energy from

Common Service and Maintenance Requirements for Storage Tanks

By |Uncategorised|

Whether storage tanks are vertical, horizontal, insulated or dual containment, at some stage they always require service and maintenance. This could be something as simple as a repair to the external wall, or as complex as changing the lining to assure compatibility with different chemicals. It’s also important for chemical storage tanks to undergo regular

Important considerations when specifying vents and ducts

By |Uncategorised|

When specifying vents and ducts for a ductwork system, the two primary considerations for designers are capacity and efficiency. Designing ductwork often leads to a variety of innovative solutions to solve problems, usually brought about by site space limitations. In this article, we’ll cover some of the most important considerations when specifying vents and ducts

Galvanising: What it is, how it works, and the plant and equipment needed

By |Uncategorised|

Galvanisation is the process of coating iron or steel with a protective layer of zinc (Zn) by immersing or ‘dipping’ the base metal into a bath of molten zinc. The temperature of these baths reaches around 449 °C (840 °F) or 550-560 °C for small objects. The higher temperature is used for smaller objects to

Steel vs Plastic tanks – the virtues and pitfalls

By |Uncategorised|

Whether you are storing acids, chemicals, lubricants, combustible fuels or water, the importance of correctly specified tanks cannot be understated. The risks with incorrect storage include contamination, safety concerns over handling, and structural issues with the tanks which may not be rated to contain the fluids. In addition to GRP tanks, the two most popular

Reverse Osmosis Systems – Performance Considerations and Pretreatment Solutions

By |Blog, Uncategorised|

The backbone of the water treatment industry, Reverse Osmosis (RO) removes contaminants, salts, and other impurities from unfiltered or feed water through a pressure force of the semipermeable membrane. This membrane blocks contaminants and lets the water molecules to pass. In osmosis, the water coming from the semipermeable membrane becomes more concentrated. In Reverse
