Dissolved Gas Control
Membrane Contactors are extremely attractive to the many industries that rely on boilers for power and process steam. Membrane Contactors are very efficient with 10 times more surface area compared to most vacuum towers. Since they are very small and compact, the skid can be installed inside with a minimal footprint. Installation near the boiler requires less piping and has lower installation costs. Membrane contactors can be run in-line and under pressure. Because there is still positive pressure at the outlet of a Membrane Contactor system, repressurization/booster pumps can also be eliminated.Find out how you can lower costs and improve efficiency at your plant by using Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors.
Thermal Mass Flowmeters
Measuring gas flow with Thermal Mass Flow sensing technology allows the customer to read gas flow at over a wide range of flow rates with exceptional accuracy. Thermal Gas Mass Flow Meters from Fox utilize the thermal sensing principle, a proven, accurate direct mass flow measurement technology. This high-powered sensor technology performs at high levels of accuracy for a wide variety of gases.
Triple/S Dynamics has been in the business of designing and manufacturing both high and low speed vibrating screens since the mid-1920s. The result of design development and refinement, today’s low-speed Texas Shaker® Precision Screener is a workhorse for the processing industries. Mechanically simple and reliable, this screen is available in a wide range of sizes to meet any capacity requirements. Unlike typical vibrating screens that shake the entire screen box, the Overstrom Screener vibrates only the screen cloth. This design change offers many benefits to the processor including minimal structure vibration, low power consumption, and low maintenance requirements.

Valveless Flow Control
Progressive cavity pumps are well suited for any application where flow control is necessary due to their valveless design, controllable flow and low pulsation. Various ranges of progressive cavity pumps can precisely meter and gently convey fluids of any viscosity, in a wide range of temperatures (especially with even wall stators), with or without solids. A progressive cavity pump self-primes and provides much better flow control. Capital, energy and maintenance costs will be lower, especially with Smart Conveying Technology. SCT reduces service time by up to 80 percent.
Due to high reliability and accuracy, low maintenance requirements, low power consumption and insignificant pressure loss, electromagnetic flowmeters (magmeters) are among the process industries’ preferred flow measuring devices. The diagnostic options offered by magmeters like the OPTIFLUX are especially interesting. Visit the Electromagnetic Flowmeter Technology Portal to learn more.
The horizontal-motion conveyor offers several advantages over other types of conveyors used for transporting bulk materials horizontally during processing. A horizontal-motion conveyor can smoothly and efficiently move a huge variety of materials, such as polymers, hot potash, borax crystals, potato chips, and breakfast cereal, without damaging, segregating, stratifying, or aerating them. Visit the Conveying Technology Portal to learn more about horizontal-motion conveying and its applications.
Oil skimmers are simple, dependable and effective tools for removing oil, grease, and other hydrocarbons from water and coolants. Often, an oil skimmer by itself can achieve the desired level of water purity. In more demanding situations, oil skimming is a cost-effective means of removing most of the oil before using more complicated and costly treatments such as coalescers, membrane filters, and chemical processes. Visit the Oil Skimming Technology Portal for more information on oil skimmers and related equipment.
Sight Glasses & Sight Flow Indicators
Sight glasses are a low-cost and reliable means of observing processes and reactions in vessels.
