Cooling tower sizing is a preliminary step that should be completed before proceeding to detail cooling tower design. Cooling tower sizing is also important for an existing cooling tower to check its performance or at least to calculate its water balances.
I have collected 7 cooling tower sizing calculators that can be used for the above-mentioned goals. All of those calculators are online, which you can use freely without downloading.
But, please remember that each cooling tower sizing calculator will result in approximate value for estimation only. Detail technical calculation should be done by cooling tower specialist.
The approximation will obtain better results if you consider also cooling tower sizing rule of thumb.
A man was injured due to chemical spills while workers were hoisting barrels of chemicals for storage at 3V Chemical Co., in Georgetown, on last 27 November 2013.
At that incident, hoist cable was broken and 4 barrels of chemicals were felt down, where 3 barrels were busted open.
After reading this story, I remembered about my workplace situation. I mean how we maintain hoist cable. In that accident, hoist cables were broken and caused barrels felt down to the ground.
I don’t know about your situation and how you maintain such lifting tool to ensure its performance and safety operation. However, through this post I would like to remind you including myself about lifting tools inspection and maintenance that may be out of our schedule. Continue reading

This article is written in order to compare waste water analysis parameters among countries in the world. Each country treats differently about this matter. Some of them may regulate waste water quality stricter than others. Their government may put deep concern to environment conservation.
Standard waste water analysis parameter in each country is usually applied for all industries, including chemical industries. Their governments develop one standard waste water quality that should be passed before waste water discharging.
It is also possible that a country applies more than one standard waste water analysis parameters. Each province or state in a country develops their own standard.
This article may not be able to show you waste water analysis parameters in each country in the world.
Waste Water Analysis Parameters Standard in Latin America
Waste Water Analysis Parameters Standard in India
Waste Water Analysis Parameters Standard in Malaysia
Waste Water Analysis Parameters Standard in Indonesia (West Java)
Waste Water Analysis Parameters Standard in Europe

Liquid chemical transfer is best carried out with pump and flow meter. But, sometimes this operation cannot be done because of several reasons. The main cause generally comes from available packaging type. Drum and Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) are two main packaging types used for chemical product these days.
Fortunately, there is a solution for such operation problem. We can use motorized drum pump with totalizer and digital flow meter to transfer liquid chemical from drum, IBC or small vessel.
By using this equipment, transfer job can be done easily and at the same time we can adjust the flow rate and know how many litre we have transferred the chemical liquid at once. Continue reading
