The lowest KR values in rupture discs KR values are used to determine the frictional flow loss in rupture discs. While the perception is that all rupture discs have high KR values, this company’s FAS (Forward Acting Scored) and PRO+ (Precision Reverse Operating) discs debunk this perception by offering the best flow characteristics available in a rupture disc. Having a lower KR value means that the...

For years, clay has been the go-to product for spill containment simply because it was cheap and did the job. While clay, also referred to as diatomaceous earth, sand or kitty litter, will always have a place in in spill containment, if it’s the only product being used to clean up hazardous and other spills, it could be costing your facility more than you realize. With more modern options available...

There was a time, not long ago, when most groups responsible for industrial control systems (ICS) in the chemical process industries (CPI) were not much worried about security. They had their firewalls in place and their remote access servers, and overall that worked for them. Rarely, a virus would sneak in and usually do little damage. The affected computers would need to be shut down and cleaned out, but...

Question:  What standard, guideline or regulation should I use to create a cybersecurity program, or should I wait until a standard is finalized? Answer:  Waiting until a cybersecurity standard is explicitly selected, accepted and enforced is a mistake for two very good reasons.  First, a security program is much more social and cultural than technical. One thing we’ve learned from the...
