WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
Reliable Sugar Manufacturing Processes Through Precise Instruments

Aerzen Flare Gas Case Study
Flaring gas is the process of burning off unwanted gas from hydrocarbon processing plants, refineries, and gas wells. It is recognized as a major environmental problem by the EPA and the IPCC. Approximately 150 billion m3 of waste gas is flared globally, which contributes to contaminating the environment by 400 Mt CO2 per year. Flare gas is identified as any gases that are burned off into the atmosphere. By 2018, in the USA, the EPA has mandated that all 142 refineries nationwide will need to comply with reducing toxic air pollutants to 5,200 tons per year and 50,000 tons per year of volatile organic compounds. This will result in a reduction in greenhouse gases equivalent to more than 660,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide.
Pump Health Monitoring
In process industries such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical and chemical, it is essential to maintain and prolong the lifetime of critical assets including pumps, valves, heat exchangers and compressors. Process companies need better insight into the condition of pumps and other assets. The goal is to gain a clearer understanding of when pumps are not operating efficiently–and the root cause of the degraded performance–instead of waiting until there is a catastrophic failure. Optimizing asset maintenance saves time and money.
Clinical Supply Optimization: Enhanced Service Model Saves Client Time On Supplies

The technology group Wärtsilä will supply a propulsion and power package for a new 75 metres long fishing trawler
Spray nozzles are a conceptually simple device with a very important purpose in the petrochemical industry. While designs are rarely the same, they operate under the same concepts. A spray nozzle disperses contents that are under pressure in a more even manner than otherwise possible. Sometimes they are used for the purpose if increasing the surface area of a desired liquid substance.
The head of the spray nozzle consists of several flow or drip points that will determine how fine the mist that emerges will be. The more flow points there are, the finer the mist will be. However, flow points are not the only factor. The pressure put on the spray nozzle will greatly affect the stream of mist. Depending on the usage, the function may require a low flow rate or a high flow rate.
Uses in the petrochemical industry usually include injecting additives to the product, creating a fire protection and prevention system for the plant, and cooling systems. They can also be used for gas scrubbing, which is the process of removing any contaminants that the oil may have accumulated during the refinement process.
Materials used to make petrochemical spray nozzles are often alloyed with other metals to ensure that they provide the correct weight, performance, and durability required by the refinery. Common metal alloys used are brass and stainless steel.
Petrochemical spray nozzles are crucial to the refining process.
