  • From The 1970s To Today – 4 Key Advances In Coriolis Flow Measurement
    From The 1970s To Today – 4 Key Advances In Coriolis Flow Measurement

    Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.

  • Relieving The Pressure Of Monitoring Peak Boiler Water Efficiency
    Relieving The Pressure Of Monitoring Peak Boiler Water Efficiency

    Industrial operations across the gamut leverage boiler water, the liquid that passes through a boiler and is converted into steam, thus powering operations around the world. But not all of them do as much as they could to ensure peak boiler water efficiency. Through the proper treatment considerations and quality measurement knowledge, every industrial player can make the most of this central process.

  • Power Plant Uses Membrane Contactors To Remove CO<sub>2</sub> From Water
    Power Plant Uses Membrane Contactors To Remove CO2 From Water

    A major power plant in Thailand is using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors to remove carbon dioxide from a DI water system. The system is an expansion project and will be used to feed a high pressure boiler. Liqui-Cel membrane contactors are being used to lower the CO2 inlet into an Ionpure Electrodeionization (EDI) system. Carbon dioxide adds an ionic load to the EDI system, which can reduce the performance of the system. Manufactures of the EDI equipment suggest lowering the inlet CO2 to reduce the load on the equipment and improve the water quality.
