Hazardous Area Classification Considerations

June 15, 2021

When properly used, the hazardous area classification system makes for a safer work environment. Too often, however, hazard classes are specified without concern for the significantly higher design and procurement costs they bring. In many cases, an open mind and a little ingenuity can avoid excessive costs for compressors and other equipment, without compromising safety.

This white paper explains hazardous classification systems commonly used in the chemical industry and outlines considerations for installing compressed air equipment in these areas

chemicals Evolution of a digital twin with an ethylene plant as an example

whitePaper | January 17, 2020

A digital twin of a process plant as an integrated concept covers three core points: The digital twin of the product, the digital twin of the production plant and the digital modeling of the performance of the product and production. The functional scope of a digital twin essentially depends on its purpose. In the process industry, this can be everything from the safety analysis, product simulation or the optimization of the production process, right up to economic benefit formulation.

Silicone-Base Coating Mitigates Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) In Petrochemical Plants

whitePaper | June 15, 2021

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the costliest problems in the petrochemical industry. It also presents a high degree of potential danger. CUI occurs when moisture mixed with contaminants infiltrates insulation, encouraging the development of corrosion cells on the steel underneath. This paper demonstrates how Sherwin-Williams Heat-Flex® High-Temp 1200 withstands temperature fluctuations, thermal shock and other upset conditions to protect against hidden CUI.

Analysis of Hand Sanitizers to Support Label Claims

whitePaper | April 30, 2021

At the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers around the world experienced a supply shortage related to alcohol-based hand sanitizer. As new producers entered the market, and existing manufacturers sought to ramp-up production to meet the growing demand, lower grades of ethanol and isopropanol (IPA) started to appear on the market. To ensure the safety and efficacy of hand sanitizer products, it is recommended that manufacturers test their products to ensure appropriate levels of active ingredients, as well as a means of ensuring label-claim accuracy. In this application note, an efficient and simple, “dilute and shoot” method for the analysis of IPA and ethanol in hand sanitizer products is detailed. With a run-time of only 5.36 minutes per sample, this method is ideal for operations requiring fast turnaround times that won’t disrupt the production of their products.

Industrial Internet of Things for hazardous areas: potential for the optimisation of existing plants

whitePaper | February 11, 2020

Whether oil and gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining or food, the development of an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in combination with algorithms and artificial intelligence, releases an enormous optimisation potential - also and especially for existing plants. New business models transform CAPEX into OPEX and reduce the financial risk. For this, however, the information chain consisting of individual IIoT modules must not only be stringent,
