Using a dry fume scrubber to remove exhaust gases

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

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

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

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

Each ducting size

Important considerations when specifying vents and ducts

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

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

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

The Ultimate Guide to Plastic and GRP Ducting

Plastic and GRP ducts are used to transport air and gases from one process to another. Despite their rudimentary nature (ultimately, ducting is nothing more than a series of ducts in which airflows one way or another) the design of ducting is professional work. A lot of engineering time goes into the design of ductwork.
