Spikes in energy costs or unplanned-for capital improvement expenses can put organizations in tricky financial situations. To solve them, they often select the option with the lowest upfront cost which leads to the "pay me now or pay me later" dilemma. Over time it's discovered that these lower-priced alternatives cost much more due to higher failure rates, wasted energy and more intensive maintenance. This Chemical Processing eHandbook presents steam technologies and strategies for reducing cost associated with using and generating steam including the article DSI reduces steam consumption - A simple formula to determine steam demand with DSI heaters by Phil Sutter of Pick Heaters.
Reactor temperature control typically is very important to product quality, production rate and operating costs whether a processor is employing continuous or batch reactors. And with many process plants currently using steam or hot water to heat jacketed devices such as tanks, kettles, dryers, reactors, glass lined vessels, or similar adaptations such as coiled tubing placed inside or outside tanks or vessels - much emphasis is placed on achieving optimized control of these processes. This special report contains various articles, including Consider Hot Water for Jacketed Heating - Hot water offers significant advantages over traditional steam-heated systems by Phil Sutter of Pick Heaters.
