Adjustment and control of moisture levels in solid materials through drying is a critical process in the manufacture of many types of chemical products. As a unit operation, drying solid materials is one of the most common and important in the chemical process industries (CPI), since it is used in practically every plant and facility that manufactures or handles solid materials, in the form of powders and...

Sulfur is a major contaminant in the oil and gas industry that exists in various forms and requires separation from both water and process streams. In recent years the removal of sulfur species has received increasing attention because of safety concerns, the need to reduce emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx), and the fact that sulfur harms the combustion properties of fuels. The “sulfur recovery...

Contact agitated dryers are used for drying wet powders, slurries, filter cakes, and applications where off-gases during the drying cycle must be contained. If the applications are also heat-sensitive, such as specialty chemicals, polymers, food products and pharmaceuticals, contact drying must take place at low heating temperatures, at residence times in tune with the tolerance of the product, and...

Many chemical processes in the U.S. that use centrifuges were established between the 1950s and the 1980s. As a result, most of these machines employ technology that was outdated literally generations ago. In addition, many processes have changed since installation, and doing more with less is now a key method of survival in today’s global economy. At the same time, regulatory and environmental...
