Processing’s Technology Portals feature videos, white papers, articles and product information on the latest industry solutions from leading equipment and instrument suppliers.
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. Types range from glass discs that mount between gaskets to sight glass windows in which the glass is fused to metal frames. Sight flow indicators are used to observe flow of liquid, gas or powder. The various styles include ANSI flanged or threaded bulls-eye style, full view (tubular), sanitary and Teflon-lined flow indicators.
