Low-profile bulk bag filler pivots fill head to operator

Eliminating the need to climb steps, strain or risk injury associated with overhead connections to conventional fill heads

Energy saving with process valves

Correctly designed steam processes can offer efficient use of this versatile product, however, get one calculation wrong or install a steam trap incorrectly and costs can start to escalate

Controlling CIP/SIP in food processing applications

Controlling these processes reliably and effectively requires the use of automated control valves that are integrated with the main production control system and designed to withstand high temperatures and aggressive cleaning media

Designs for controlling hot processes – it’s all material

Ian Webster looks at the impact that temperature has on valve design and how to achieve the most cost effective solution

Tank construction in tight spaces reduces plant downtime

Spiral-seam tank construction system requires very little space for building and so is suitable for replacing, upgrading or expanding upon existing storage and processing plant capacity

Ensuring carbon vane reliability in vacuum pumps

Adrienne Houston explores the common causes of failure for carbon vanes and the steps end users can take to ensure correct operation

Top 5 tips for increasing energy efficiency in pneumatic systems

New guide which details a number of ways that plant managers can improve efficiency in their pneumatic production processes

10 top torque tips

Driveshafts deliver power as a rotary force, and in most applications there is a need to know the amount of power in the system. But getting measurements from a turning shaft requires some engineering ingenuity, so here Tony Ingham runs through the basics

Steam: accumulating interest

David Oakland describes how steam accumulation can be harnessed to aid steam plant design and secure higher energy efficiency

Optimising the measurement performance of infrared thermal imaging cameras

There are many factors to consider when selecting a thermal imaging camera. While emissivity and wavelength are crucial when measuring the temperature of specific materials or objects, other factors such as ease of camera set up, software integration capabilities and compactness are equally important, says Glenn Wedgbrow

Advances in filter technology for industrial water processing

In light of growing global resource shortages and the cost of processing ‘new’ fresh water, effective treatment of used water or water for non-potable use is vital to reducing overall process costs

Mixer moves up and down

Vincent Fleck proposes a simple but extremely smart vertical mixing system for the homogenisation of suspensions, mashes and slurries
