This webinar examines the current status of the U.S. chemical industry as well as its outlook over the next several years. We will start with examination of the economic environment, with emphasis on housing, light vehicles and other important end-use markets. We will then focus on: 1) basic chemicals and synthetic materials; and 2) specialty chemicals.
The outlook of former represents a supply driven gain, made possible by a renewed competitive advantage from shale development. A synchronous global upswing is also contributing to growth in that segment. Gains in specialty chemicals are largely demand driven gain and reflect the resurgence of U.S. manufacturing, in addition to the expanding economies of our global trading partners.
Every filtration challenge is unique. At GKD, we're here to help create a custom solution to solve your filtration challenge. In this webinar, we'll focus on how we use our knowledge of porous structures along with state-of-the-art simulation tools to quickly and effectively create filtration solutions for our customers.
Solving the Complexity of Selecting, Sizing and Troubleshooting Rupture Disks
Rupture disks are safety systems and should be able to operate independently and reliably under all circumstances. In some instances, this doesn’t occur and the protection of employees and equipment are in danger. Learn the key areas of troubleshooting rupture disk performance; how to correctly select the right disk for your application and how to properly size a rupture disk.
Don’t get left behind! A case study in the next generation of project execution
Projects in the chemical industry are complex and have been completed using the same methods for decades. As a result, 64% of today's projects face cost overruns and 73% report schedule delays. Complicate this with multi-site, multi-continent projects and the risk for cost and time overruns rise exponentially. To succeed in today's environment requires a new approach to project execution.
Listen to the discussion of an innovative approach to project execution using world-class project management processes and controls to ensure consistent execution and quality assurance in the world's largest petrochemical complex. View the On Demand webinar to ensure your projects finish on time and in budget!
Many companies store, handle, or process particulate solids but do not necessarily know what properties should be used to characterize bulk solids that make up raw materials, intermediates, and final products handled at their facilities. Some laboratories are equipped with powder characterization testers, but personnel do not always have the education training required to use test results to their full capability. This webinar will review bulk solids handling test equipment including shear cell testers, solids rheometers, wall friction and permeability testers, and other instruments that any facility that handles powders should have in its testing laboratory.
In the process industries, a leading contributor to problems with reliability and fixed equipment mechanical integrity is operating outside of the operating envelope. API Recommended Practice 584 describes an Integrity Operating Windows (IOW) program to address this issue, but IOW programs are not universal. IOW programs often require managing limits for thousands of process conditions that are used in multiple systems. This presentation will show you how a process facility can establish, monitor, and maintain integrity limits, and can use the information to guide preventive maintenance, resulting in improved reliability.
