Flammable liquid handling requires special tools due to its easy to get fire characteristic. Spark is not allowable at all. If not fulfilled, fire may happen.
Drum pump is one of those special tools used for transferring flammable liquid from drums to other container or direct to user. It can also be used from transferring flammable liquid from one to another drum.
I will show you drum pump for flammable liquids from Tuthill®. AT150 and BR150 are special two drum pump for flammable liquids such as petroleum products. Both are UL-Listed products. Continue reading
Liquid Silicon Rubber (LSR) is a thermoset molding that involves mixing two components, heating and curing the mixture using a platinum catalyst to produce a final product. Liquid Silicon Rubber parts are usually formed through n injection-molding procedure comparable to that of conventional plastic injection molding but has one major difference — the material delivery system is cooled and the mold is heated. Custom Molded Rubber can be used to fit one design and shape as desired.
The end product of this process has very excellent properties such as: excellent chemical, thermal and electrical resistance, they are strong and elastic. They also maintain their physical structure and can withstand sterilization. Continue reading
Besides air conditioner, there may be other refrigerators in the plant that use halogenated refrigerant. Refrigerant leakage is not only problem for the machine itself, but it may create hazard for people and of course the environment.
Detecting refrigerant gas leak is not easy. For most of the people, it will be hard to decide whether refrigerant is leaking or not. Of course if the refrigerant is ammonia, it will be very easy to recognize.
So, for this case using refrigerant gas leak detector is the right choice. This detector will show up leak detection. An example of refrigerant gas leak detector is Signstek HLD 100+, a Portable Refrigerant Gas Leakage Detector. Continue reading
Combustible gas detector is an essential tool for industrial safety. This tool helps safety officer detecting combustible gas existence as quickly as possible to prevent fire or explosion.
SPX Industrial TIF8800X Combustible Gas Detector is a battery-operated combustible gas detector that can detect combustible gas (gasoline) as low as 1 ppm. This detector is very sensitive.
SPX Industrial TIF8800X Combustible Gas Detector can be used in almost any industrial situation where combustible gases are utilized such as in pipelines, liquid or gas fired-heating equipments, propane filling station, laboratory or gas cylinder storage area. Continue reading
How many times have you encountered cooling water lines plugging? And how many times have you recorded plant operation has to be stopped due to quality problem of cooling water?
Cooling water quality is one of the key factors that affects cooling water system performance. Good cooling water treatment program and cooling water side stream filtration are responsible for the quality of cooling water.
Cooling water treatment program is mandatory for cooling water maintenance. However, cooling water side stream filtration system is considered only as an optional system. Continue reading
If you usually use hydrochloric acid in the workplace, suppose for chemical cleaning or pure water production, then you have to be careful with the hydrochloric acid burn.
Hydrochloric acid is a hazardous chemical. It is a very corrosive liquid. When it contacts your skin, you may suffer skin burn, itching, redness, inflammation and or swelling of exposed tissues. The severity will depend on hydrochloric acid concentration and duration of contact.
Then, how to treat a hydrochloric acid burn on the skin?
Immediately, flush your skin with plenty of water at least for 15 minutes. More than 15 minutes is recommended. You can use cold water for this case. At the same time, remove contaminated clothing, shoes, and gloves, and wash them with soap before reuse. Continue reading
