Process Equipment info:
Processing implies that a certain operation or action requires more than one step—in the manufacturing of a product, there are several steps in which materials are treated and prepared. For each step of the process there are specific machines and equipment designed to make production as efficient and effective as possible. These machines and types of specified equipment fall under the Processing Equipment heading.
Within each category the processing equipment will vary. With dehydrators for example, subcategories offer dehydrating equipment itself, as well as dehydrator accessories and agents such as gas and oil. The function and objective each equipment or part has, however, is dependent upon the processing job.
Heat Exchanger Design
A heat exchanger must have a design that allows two different liquids to interact. As a result, most heat exchangers are designed with two adjacent containers for a liquid. The variation in containers leads to many of the basic differences in heat exchanger design.
Types of Heat Exchangers
Heat exchangers, including shell and tube, plate, regenerative, and adiabatic heat exchangers, are explored here.

The "Immersion Engineered" Process : or 1 Pass Immersion vs. 3 or 4 Pass Fire Tube
Highlighting that a typical fire tube uses a large diameter furnace tube and multiple smaller flue tubes, this paper states that furnace tube which is exposed to high temperatures would expand at a greater rate, by causing uneven pressures on their common fixed tube sheets. It presents the principle of thermal shock which is due to the little flex...
Torrefaction of Wood Biomass
The paper explains about torrefaction, a thermochemical process which reduces the moisture content of biomass by increasing its energy density in order to transform it into a charred material resembling charcoal. It highlights that the wood, which is a biological substance that lends itself well to the process of torrefaction when compared to...
New Greenhouse Gas Standards
This paper explains about the decisions of EPA in order to regulate greenhouse gases, and presents tailoring rule, which was developed by EPA to raise the major thresholds in the case of greenhouse gas emissions. It details how EPA tried to get the greenhouse gas regulation into the permit program and reviews the effect of those regulations on...

This paper explains how the dryer maintenance can be made easy by keeping an accurate maintenance record and using that record for planning, which entails recording a dryer's performance and normal operating conditions, and scheduling dryer inspections and regular preventive maintenance. It details elements that should be part of a dryer's...
