Challenges of Drying Sticky Wastewater Sludge

Operators and engineers in the chemical process industries (CPI) who are responsible for the daily operations associated with sludge dewatering and drying equipment are undoubtedly aware that wastewater-sludge drying is not an easy task. A large number of the problems that arise during these operations are due to the sticky phase of sludge, which makes the drying of sludge as much an art as a science. Although insight into the sticky behavior of sludge... 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 plan for, and react to, issues that could... 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
