A UK-based edible oils processing plant uses activated carbon in order to clean up various contaminants contained within the oils for product quality reasons. The spent carbon is regenerated on-site in a gas fired rotary hearth furnace and the hot exhaust gases (700°C) from the furnace are a valuable high grade source of waste heat. […]
While the capital cost of electrical thermal oil heaters is much less than gas fired ones the running costs of the oil fired units are far less than the electrical units. If required process temperatures are above 150ºc then it is better to use thermal oil heaters rather than steam boilers. Often the heat load […]
Pressure vessels are used around the world for a wide variety of applications including water treatment, food manufacture, scientific research and industrial manufacturing. Such diversity means that the designs for individual applications are often unique or built in very low volumes, so creating these vessels requires flexibility as well as considerable manufacturing expertise.
