Pumps are among the most commonly used machines in the chemical process industries (CPI). Condition monitoring tests and predictive maintenance can help pump operators determine when to overhaul pumps in a way that minimizes costs. Despite pumps’ ubiquity and large energy demands, however, relatively little information is available on how to apply predictive maintenance approaches and condition...

Information management provides a way to develop new materials, products or formulations more rapidly, on the basis of the information that a company already possesses in-house, while providing insight that can be used to guide experimentation and predict results — even when there are no experimental data available. These approaches have been successfully adopted by numerous corporations across...

The ability to model a process to see if it meets project requirements and is economically viable enhances the conceptual design. Modeling gives engineers a means to identify the most promising processes, in terms of capital investment and return, and this can be particularly important when the project is environmentally oriented (a so-called green project). Did you ever consider producing a new product...
