Fiberglass reinforced plastic tanks: Advantages and uses

In applications where the strength-to-weight ratio is a key consideration, fibreglass holds several advantages over metals that are hard to ignore. Fibreglass is a composite material made from woven nylon embedded with glass fibres bonded together with a binder. The addition of glass fibres increases the tensile and mechanical strength of the material considerably, producing

Important considerations when choosing chemical process and chemical storage tanks

Proper chemical storage is essential for safety and to ensure that chemicals remain unspoiled. Improper storage is not only hazardous, but it is also bad for quality control and in some cases illegal. Chemicals can be impacted by elements like heat, cold and pressure - and the materials used to make tanks can be impacted

What are the different types of ductwork?

There are several types of ductwork for different applications. An important consideration when designing ducts is leakage classification and pressure testing. Some applications, like ventilation systems, also call for fire compartmentation tests. Ducts can be manufactured to any specification and final specifications depend on the design and intended use case of the system. For example,

Service of Process Vessels and Ducts

The maintenance of process vessels mandated by different industry standards to increase the longevity of the vessel, helping in concocting smoothly in the long-run. The process not only diminishes the risk of vessel failure and improves the safety of users as well as of the environment. Maintenance involves the repair or refurbishment of broken and

Biofiltration for Industrial Odour Control

Industrial Odour The industrial odour is produced by an expansive range of organisations, both private sector and government organisations. Processes such as food production, waste incineration, infrastructure, wastewater treatment, chemical processing, and many more are involved in the emission of odours. Odour is a variable dependent on certain environmental factors that can considerably increase its

PDFL’s Response to COVID-19

To fight the deadly coronavirus, Process Design Fabrications Ltd. (PDFL) has been working tirelessly to design effective protective safety screens, sneeze screens, worker protection screens, and hygiene screens to help businesses return to work while ensuring a safe working environment for their staff. New guidelines by the government are encouraging workplaces to use these protective

A guide to Chemical Storage Tanks

Chemical storage tanks are containers for chemical products widely used within the chemical and related industries and are available for different purposes, i.e. storing, processing, mixing, transportation of raw or finished products. The chemical tanks are used to store old liquids, compressed gases, hazardous chemicals, etc. in fluids or solids and are available in

Reverse Osmosis Systems – Performance Considerations and Pretreatment Solutions

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
