The chemical process industries (CPI) face unprecedented opportunities in the form of global growth initiatives. But with growth and globalization comes challenge, in particular with regard to securing people and knowledge resources, and in dealing effectively with increasing technology, project execution, and asset management complexity (for more, see pp. 21 – 24). Effective uptake and utilization...

July, Causes and Prevention of Packing Fires, p. 34. I thought the article was very timely and informative and appreciate being a reference for your paper. However, after reviewing the information provided regarding potassium permanganate (especially Table 1), I must provide the following constructive comments. We know of one specific refinery that has been using permanganate since 1991 with excellent...

Another corrosion-resistant material deserves a mention In the December 2007 article, The Heat Is On (pp. 24–28) I take issue with the statement next to the Pfaudler photo, “Tantalum and glass-lined steel are the two most corrosion resistant materials used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.” They are two of the most corrosion resistant materials, but our Hexoloy Sintered Alpha...

Third-quarter earnings were mixed for chemical companies listed in the CW100. Strong overseas demand in the quarter offset a weak North American market, chemical firms say. Higher oil, gas, and raw materials costs weighed on margins in the quarter, however, producers say. Dow Chemical’s net income fell 21%, to $403 million (42 cts/share), including $362 million in charges resulting from a change in...

Most executives understand the important roles that recruiting and training play in the overall health of their company’s workforce. But fewer have a good grasp of the comprehensive nature of the workforce supply chain. In particular, many companies fail to take into account the cost incurred at each link of the chain. As a result, their personnel strategies fall short and they are unable to halt the...

Opinion on ChE Graduate Shortages Your editorial (Calling all chemical engineers, Sept., p. 5) on the subject of the lack of entrants to chemical engineering studies and careers invited readers to reply. I think that this problem will not go away until the industries desiring chemical engineers examine the source of the problem. In my opinion any high school leaver with more brains than a sausage will have...

In an age of biofuels, advanced materials, and specialty chemicals, what should chemical engineers concentrate on to advance their careers? The buzzwords to chase these days are anything bio, nano, and micro. Professor Tony Pavone, who teaches chemical engineering process design at Stanford University in California, and also consults with SRI Consulting (Chem Show; New York; Booth 703), says that it is...

While the Pennant ECS can be put to multiple applications, multi-bagger benefits accrue with its ability to convert both saturated and superheated steam into clean electrical energy. Typically, the ECS is used in parallel with a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) or Pressure Reducing Desuperheater Station (PRDS) situated downstream of the boiler. The ECS, configured in the above arrangement is able to smartly...
