This is part 3 of our series on surface treatments of components. Due to the great number of different chemical processes, we have split them up and explored these processes in the previous article: Chromate conversion coating, Phosphating, Galvanizing, Plating, Black oxide. This blog article covers the remaining chemical processes commonly applied for the treatment of component surfaces.

Closing the loop: Real-time measurement of oil in water for process facilities

Article | May 10, 2021

When an oilfield’s reservoir pressure is depleted during primary recovery, additional oil can be recovered by recycling the produced water and injecting it back into the reservoir. Water management is critical for such water and water-alternating-gas (WAG) floods. In its Permian basin operations, Occidental recovers, recycles, and re-injects large volumes of water for its enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations. With real-time monitoring of oil in water (OiW) delivering reliable and continuous data, Occidental identified a way to optimize the recovery process and is working with NOV to expand the use of OiW monitoring equipment.

What is Rate of Reaction and Why is It Important For The Chemical Industry?

Article | February 18, 2020

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the rate of reaction is the true lifeline of the chemical industry in India, and the whole world. A lower rate of reaction would mean, chemical manufacturers can produce products at much faster rates which gives them a great competitive advantage over others. The chemical industry strives to create a faster rate of reactions as it impacts revenue goals.

How Is the SCIP Database Different From the REACH Regulation

Article | February 14, 2020

Companies operating in the European Union (EU) must submit data when introducing articles containing Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) above the 0.1 percent weight by weight (w/w) threshold. The reporting trigger for an in-scope article is currently derived from the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation’s Candidate List of SVHCs, but the data requirements for the SCIP database, triggered by the EU Waste Framework Directive (WFD), vary widely from those required by the REACH Regulation.
