Low dust emission values for difficult filtration processes

Filtration plant for paraffinic dust particles

Dust particles containing paraffin are adhesive and waxy, and they can clog a filter within a very short time. In this case, cleaning is no longer an option......

Electrohydraulic compact drives for pipelines

Smart combination of fluidics and electronics

Electrohydraulic compact drives are the focus of a fascinating discussion. What is in fact the driving force in drive technology? The key is re-engineered......

Production free of waste water

Reverse osmosis under high pressure

Instead of discharging water which is as clean as possible, the aim in future is for production processes to discharge no water whatsoever. Together with its......

Glencore relies on shear pumps with sealless magnetic couplings

Efficient plants for biodiesel production

Plant oils – the basic materials in biodiesel production – are processed in several steps. A process known as transesterification presents a particular......

Quickly-installable drum emptying system

Flexible connector for the chemical industry

Just snap it on

Production managers looking for the perfect connector for their whole plant are often confronted with an endless variety of materials and specifications. When......

Calorimeter with explosion protection checks combustion gas quality

Reliable operation of gas turbines

Liberalised gas markets and the increased use of process gases as an energy source frequently result in fluctuating gas quality for consumers. If thermally......

Switchgear with Atex approval

Safe switching under extreme conditions

Switching devices need to be protected from damp and extreme temperatures. Depending on the type of switch, vibration, dirt and corrosive media or gases can......

How to get more from the mixing process

On-site laboratory testing

The best way to optimise a mixing process is to run tests and trials with the actual products that need to be blended. In the chemical and mining industries......

Sight glasses made of borosilicate glass

Viewing extreme conditions safely

Sight glasses make it possible to observe chemical processes in reactors directly or check fill levels inside pipes and storage tanks. These glasses are often......


Level measurement for liquids

Compact, safe and easy are the three words that immediately spring to mind when describing the revised Liquiphant FTL31/33 level sensor. The sensor can be......


For the toughest applications
