Given the state of the still-lagging economy, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the chemical process industries (CPI) are attempting to get more finished product from their existing processes at lower costs. As a result, many are examining their liquid-to-solid separation operations with hopes of eking out additional product and savings. And, it appears that more robust and versatile automated...

To solve the task of solid-liquid (S-L) separation in the chemical process industries (CPI) a wide variety of methods are invariably used. Many of these methods are not mutually exclusive and include a selection of technologies that can be expediently combined to provide an efficient operating system. A good understanding of the options available and details of the individual system modules can enhance the...

Spray drying has been applied for many years for production of fine powders of high quality for various types of batteries. Over the years, the demand to energy density and performance of batteries from new applications has led to the development of new generations of batteries, including secondary lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are foreseen to play an important role in the electric vehicle market...

Most members of the highly regulated chemical process industries (CPI) are aware of the growing worldwide attention focused on the issues of climate change, air and water pollution and the supply and protection of natural resources. For this reason, air-pollution-control scrubbers play an integral role in most chemical processing facilities. However, the economic downturn caused many processors to shelve...

Drying as a process is one of the most energy-intensive unit operations on the planet. Add to that the fact that dryers are used extensively throughout the chemical process industries (CPI) and it becomes obvious that there ought to be more attention paid to reducing the energy consumption and upping the “green” ante of drying processes. Unfortunately, the current economy is putting any such...
