Cooling water is very important cooling media for every chemical processing plant. It is used in many cooling processes; machine cooling, heat recovery, reactor cooling, barometric condenser and other important cooling processes.
Understanding the core principles and practices of cooling water treatment is the key to having excellent skills and knowledge in operating and maintaining cooling system. Corrosion inhibition, cooling water quality, chemicals used for cooling water treatment and make up water pre-treatment processes are some of topics that needs to be mastered.
A book titled Cooling Water Treatment Principles and Practice by Colin Frayne is good reference book for every chemical engineer, utility engineer and cooling water treatment professional who want to master cooling water treatment field.
The book is an excellent resource that only focus on cooling water treatment principles and practice. Cooling Water Treatment Principles and Practice by Colin Frayne is highly recommended.
In the Chapter 7 and 8, the writer describes how to sell, buy and select cooling water treatment programs. This is practicable and I like this topic.
Steam trap holds an important role in steam distribution system. It keeps steam quality high by removing steam condensate from the system.
To meet high performance of steam trap, there are several factors to be considered such as steam trap selection, location, piping configuration, installation and maintenance.
Failed to do best efforts will end at low performance of steam distribution; energy loss, poor steam quality, water hammer and loss of steam.
The followings are steam trap best practices that can help you make your best efforts on selection, choosing location, piping configuration, installation and maintenance for steam trap. Continue reading
Confined space work requires special safety treatment as well as special safety tool. This is because confined space work is one of the most dangerous work area.
In a confined space, worker may be killed just in seconds caused by breathing poison gas like carbon monoxide or hydrogen disulfide (H2S). In addition, oxygen deficiency will likely to occur in such work area due to limited air entrance.
So, it is very important to make sure that there is no poison gas (like carbon monoxide and hydrogen disulfide) and combustible gas, and there is sufficient oxygen content inside the confined space. Continue reading

If you export chemical products or deliver them across an island in your country, then you should be familiar with 20 feet container or even 40 feet container. Knowing exactly 20’ dry container dimensions is a must to optimize container content.
I remembered when I carried out this work for the first time several years ago. And at the end of this post, I will show you how you should arrange your contents (200-liter drums, 100-liter drums, or whatever packaging size you use) inside 20’ dry container.
Now, let’s begin with 20’ dry container dimensions. Continue reading
