FOCUS ON E-NEWSLETTER:
This monthly e-newsletter is sent to a targeted database determined by the subject matterof each technical report. This month’s e-newsletter will cover Solids Handling and deploy April 12.

Topic: Solids Processing
FEATURE REPORT

Summary: Handling and processing solid materials present unique engineering challenges. This two-part Feature Report addresses two of the most potentially vexing of these challenges. Part 1 investigates the negative consequences of taking samples that are not truly representative of the bulk solid, and how to arrive close to the “truth.” Part 2 addresses the issue of flow stoppages in powder handling, and how to avoid them.
Related equipment and services:  All solids-handling equipment and instrumentation, including bins, hoppers, siloes, chutes and valves, as well as sampling devices, level measurement equipment and more
Relevant industries: Chemicals, materials, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foods, agriculture, mining and others

Topic: Hygienic Processing
FEATURE REPORT

Summary: Hygienic is synonymous with cleanliness, or being sanitary, so it is not surprising that hygienic processing is most associated with the manufacturing of food and beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, dairy and brewing products. A large number of products produced by these sectors are produced batch-wise. Therefore, the ability to clean the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings, without disassembly — a process known as cleaning-in-place (CIP) — is necessary to maintain high levels of hygiene, especially when switching from one batch to the next. Often, steam-in-place (SIP) is required in addition to CIP, for sterilization purposes. This Feature Report presents practical advice on the design, construction and trouble-free operation of CIP/SIP systems.
Related equipment and services: Automated systems with programmable logic controllers, multiple balance tanks, sensors, valves, pumps, heat exchangers, data acquisition and spray nozzle systems.
Relevant industries: Food and beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, dairy and brewing industries

Topic: Lithium Processing
NEWSFRONT

Summary: The demand for lithium and other battery materials, such as cobalt, has skyrocketed in recent years due to the growth of smart devices, as well as the push toward electric-powered vehicles. This article will examine some of the new technologies that are emerging to source, recycle and process lithium and other battery materials.
Related equipment and services: Mining and metal-processing equipment, process design software and tools, equipment used for purification, such as membranes and chromatography columns
Relevant industries: Mining, minerals, fine chemicals

Editorial material for consideration should be sent to associate editor Mary Page Bailey (mbailey@chemengonline.com)

Topic: Level Measurement & Control
NEWSFRONT

Summary:  Together with temperature, pressure and flow, level is one of the main process parameters that needs to be measured and controlled in many process applications of the CPI. This month's Equipment Newsfront presents the latest trends and technology innovations in level measurement and control.
Related equipment and services: All types of sensors, transmitters and controllers used for level
Relevant industries: All CPI sectors need to measure and control level of materials

Editorial material for consideration should be sent to contributing editor Joy LePree (jlepree@chemengonline.com)

Topic: Corrosion
FACTS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Summary:  In CPI plant settings, corrosion is a critical challenge from several perspectives, including safety, performance and reliability & maintenance. This one-page reference provides information on monitoring, managing and avoiding corrosion through materials selection and other strategies.
Related equipment and services: Corrosion-resistant materials and coatings, corrosion-monitoring instruments, fiberglass-reinforced polymers, plastics
Relevant industries: All sectors of the CPI may face corrosion challenges.

Topic: Polyethylene Production
TECHNOLOGY PROFILE

Summary:  Polyethylene is among the world’s most commonly produced plastics. This one-page process description discusses the production of low-density polyethylene using a high-pressure tubular process.
Related equipment and services: All processing equipment related to plastics manufacturing
Relevant industries: Petrochemicals, oil and gas, plastics production, ethane cracking, and others

Focus on Pumps
FOCUS

Summary: Pumps are used in a wide range of applications in the CPI, performing all kinds of tasks, from emptying and filling containers, performing CIP tasks, moving heat-transfer fluids, filling and emptying storage tanks, reactor and columns, to supplying cooling water and discharging waste streams. This month's Focus presents some of the newest pumps entering the market.
Related equipment and services:  All types of pumps used in the CPI
Relevant industries: All sectors of the CPI use pumps. 

Editorial material for consideration should be sent to senior editor Gerald Ondrey (gondrey@chemengonline.com)

Topic: CE Plant Cost Index
ENGINEERING PRACTICE

Summary: Periodically, changes to the source data that go into the CE Plant Cost Index necessitate alterations in how the index is calculated. This article describes a recent situation in which such a change was required.
Related equipment and services: Cost engineering software, construction planning tools
Relevant industries: All sectors of the CPI may be concerned with plant construction costs.

Topic: Flare Selection
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGER

Summary: Flaring has long proven to be the most effective technology for disposing of gases that cannot be used otherwise in CPI facilities. Different flaring technologies are used, depending on environmental regulations, site requirements and process needs. This article will help engineers to select the best flaring technology to fit their needs.
Related equipment and services: All types of flaring equipment and accessories, including ground flares, elevated flares and more; equipment and technologies used to monitor and control emissions; burners and other combustion equipment
Relevant industries: Flaring may be used in all CPI sectors to dispose of waste gases, but it is especially prevalent in petroleum refining and petrochemicals manufacturing sites.
