Sump Level Make-Up Water Controls in Wet Chemical Scrubbers

Maintaining efficiency in wet chemical scrubbers has become one of the most important missions of current APC facilities due to urban growth and plant expansion/modernization projects as good stewards of the community. Systems often run above the 90% efficiency mark with the help of accurate make-up water control instruments. Continue reading “Sump Level Make-Up Water Controls in Wet Chemical Scrubbers”

Product Highlight: Hi-Flow™ Control Valves

Hi-Flow™ Control Valve

Hi-Flow™ control valves are single seated, top or cage guided globe valves – probably the simplest, from a construction standpoint, yet most versatile control valve in use. The Hi-Flow™ valve can fit applications with a smaller size valve since the valve has a greater flow capacity than most conventional valves of the same size. Coupled with a high flow capacity, the Hi-Flow™ valve maintains a wide rangeability of 50:1 to ensure precise control.

Pressure Transmitters Used for Pump Skids

We recently met with Aaron, a customer working on a project in West Virginia who needed to replace pressure transmitters on water transfer pump skids.

The transmitters had been installed on the discharge line, and were outside exposed to the elements. The transmitters had plastic connectors which had a tendency to degrade over time due to the wind, rain, and sun, leading to premature failure. Without functioning pressure transmitters, the pump skids themselves would shut down and limit water transfer operations. Continue reading “Pressure Transmitters Used for Pump Skids”
