The Chemical Resistant of VACUUBRAND's Pumps

For many people, one of the most important features to consider when sourcing a vacuum pump is the ability of that pump to hold up over the long term.  Pumps are exposed to a wide range of operating conditions that could lead to premature pump failure, if the wrong pump is selected.  VACUUBRAND’s chemical resistant ...


Cost Savings with Process Vacuum - Part 2

In light of the operational concerns reviewed in Part 1, this chemical recycling firm decided to evaluate different pump technologies.  Fortunately, recent advances in vacuum pump technology make dry-running pumps a viable option for many of those currently using liquid ring pumps.  Dry pump technologies like chemical-resistant diaphragm pumps can be considered as a viable ...


Cost Savings with Process Vacuum Systems - Part 1

Summary:  A number of common industrial processes require vacuum, such as distillation or drying operations.  The necessary vacuum has historically been supplied using a variety of technologies that have high operating costs in terms of both consumables (e.g., oil, water) and maintenance costs.  With recent advances in pump technology, process vacuum can now be supplied ...

The value of modern two-wire technology

This paper describes advances in two-wire instrumentation, specifically in relation to flowmeters, that have taken place in the past few years, and the significant cost benefits that this new technology can realize for plant builders and operators in terms of capital investment and cost of ownership. ...


Temperature profiling in hazardous environments

Modern flow technologies provide instrument engineers with vital self-monitoring information. The format of such applications for temperature profiling in the oil & gas and petrochemical industries are characterized by demanding process conditions in term of hazardous media with high pressures and temperatures—combined with elevated corrosion rates, turbulence and vibration. Specialized instrumentation such as array sensors and multipoint thermometers are available to make required measurements, but care must be taken during installation and use. ...


Basics of continuous level measurement

No matter what technology you choose to measure level, always look at the accuracy you want to achieve and the process conditions. What is the pressure and temperature of your process? Will there be foam or gas fumes associated with this process? Is there an agitator or turbulent surface in the process? What is the dielectric or specific gravity of your process? In most applications you will find there are multiple technologies that will work, with the final choice best determined by working with an experienced supplier of all of the leading level measurement technologies. ...
