Using Advanced Sealing Technologies to Prevent Fugitive Emissions

13 sum sealing tech 1Regulators’ monitoring of emissions has forced industries to either implement proactive programs of leak detection and repair (LDAR) or deal with implications of non-compliance, which include fines and consent decrees. In either case, advanced sealing technology can help: It allows an entity to avoid noncompliance or adhere to the low-emission consent decrees.


Opportunities and challenges in the LNG process

13 sum LNG tanker1Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is exactly what it says: the liquid form of natural gas. The process of liquefying is performed to reduce the volume for purposes of transporting the fuel: LNG reduces volume by 600 times, making it much more economical to transport by sea aboard LNG carrier ships to destinations all over the world.

Finding the Source of All that Noise

13 spr noise collageProcessing plants today do everything they can to increase efficiency and productivity. Frequently, that involves operating at higher temperatures, pressures and flow rates, which means higher pressure differentials across critical control valves as well other conditions that generate more noise. While this noise has always been a problem, it is even more so in today’s high-throughput processing plants.

Challenges and New Solutions in the Dry Chlorine Industry

13 wnt chlorine 1Dry chlorine gas is found within chlorine ­production, storage and transfer facilities, as well as in downstream processes such as production of vinyl chloride monomer (used in making polymer polyvinyl chloride) or phosgene (used in applications such as pharmaceuticals and organic compounds). Dry chlorine is generally understood to have less than 150 parts per million (PPM) water containment.1 Moisture contamination in any of these dry chlorine service areas, however, can result in the formation of dendrites, ­crystal-like masses that can cause problems.
