    When space is limited, consider this flowmeter for solids Although solid flowmeters based on centrifugal forces are commonly used in the CPI, space limitations often limit their applicability. The Baby FlowSlide has been developed to remove this limitation, and will be launched at Powtech. The system has a total height of only 400 mm and has a flow capacity between 50 and 5,000 kg/h. A larger...

A new-type of polymer composite has recently been commercialized by Ceram Polymerik Pty Ltd. (Melbourne, Australia; for passive fire-protection applications. Passive fire protection consists of using a material or structure that confines fires, giving people more time to escape while reducing structural damage. The new composite is based on technology that transforms plastics and...

    Nanotechnology, in the form of nanomaterials, is already a significant business for the chemical process industries (CPI). One recent study says that this year’s global nanotechnology market is worth more than $10 billion, of which 86% is attributable to nanomaterials, and that the total market will reach $25 billion by 2011 (see box). This figure includes well-established commercial...

  A stronger, more stable exhaust duct is offered U-Lok 440 (photo) is an ultra-flexible, silicone fiberglass exhaust-extraction duct that can be used for air or fume extraction. The tubing’s patented Mechanical Lock Construction provides “superior” tear and tensile strength, which eliminates wire movements found in traditional single-ply duct, says the firm. The U-Lok 440 is rated...
