Making security a priority

It seems that more and more, security concerns — both physical and cyber — have become part of our daily lives both off and on the job. The all-too-frequent news stories on the topic as well as repetitive prompts, such as the “if you see something, say something” slogan, remind us to keep up our vigilance. This past year, security has been the subject of more than one Executive... More

Modern Water-Treatment Challenges

Water and wastewater treatment are extremely important at liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities and other industries that are blossoming due to the shale-gas boom. Engineering concerns are similar to those of other industrial water-treatment and power-generation systems, but with the added issue of adequate treatment for entrained hydrocarbons. With proper system design and operation, plant personnel can... More

A Safety Checklist For Laboratories

Laboratories, such as those used for quality control in a production environment and those in research and development, are an integral part of the chemical process industries (CPI). Everyday demands of business can easily overtake safety when it comes to setting priorities in the laboratory. Deadlines must be met. Samples must be analyzed. Questions must be answered — and quickly. But even for the most experienced chemists and laboratory workers... More

Cooling Towers: Managing Tighter Water-Discharge Regulations

Historically, many large industrial facilities, including power plants, have relied on once-through cooling, in which the entire cooling water volume flows through the plant heat exchangers and then is discharged to the original source. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA; Washington, D.C.) has, for over a decade, been developing regulations to protect aquatic life from impingement and entrapment at once-through cooling intakes. This... More
