An introduction to...Dry ice cleaning Subscription
Dry ice (CO2) cleaning is an efficient and cost-effective way for industries to maximise production capability and quality. Dry ice cleaning uses recycled CO2 in the form of solid dry ice particles that are transported by high-velocity airflow to remove contaminates from surfaces.
An introduction to...Safety hoses Subscription
When incompatible parts are used together and hoses come loose from their fittings, the results can be devastating on workers and the surrounding environment. Add a confined space to the mix, and it can become fatal. In fact, a number of tragic incidents over recent months have highlighted just how important safety is when installing and maintaining hoses.
An introduction to...PSA technologies Subscription
PSA technology relies on a process called adsorption, which is the tendency of gases to be drawn to solid surfaces when subjected to high pressure. Different surfaces attract different gases more strongly, meaning target-rich gases can be attained by selecting the most suitable material.
Brazil has experienced changes with respect to its sugarcane-based sources for carbon dioxide (CO2), and current and future plans for some project changes to cellulosic sources as well. Here, Sam A. Rushing explains why Brazil is taking a lead with CO2 from fermentation.
