Minimizing Explosion Risk Where Other Solutions Cannot

To run carbon disulfide recovery with the highest safety, a Chinese chemical company wanted to install a tunable diode laser (TDL) oxygen analyzer. But the line size of the pipe at the installation point was too small. A METTLER TOLEDO TDL analyzer provided the answer. Read the article. ...


Minimizing Corrosion with Fast, Robust Gas Analysis

Corrosion can never be totally stopped, but significantly slowing its progress can be achieved if analyzers rapidly detect out-of-spec conditions. For a prominent European chemical company, switching from slow electrolytic sensors to almost real-time moisture analysis has made a significant improvement. ...


Lower Measurement Point Costs with Automatic pH Sensor Cleaning

Switch to automated sensor cleaning to increase operator safety, extend pH sensor lifetime, reduce maintenance costs. See how to do it! ...


Your Off-line pH Measurements Might Be Misleading and Costing You a Lot of Money

Off-line lab measurements of pH are often used for process control instead of in-line measurements. But as a hot process sample cools, its pH can change significantly. Relying on pH measurement of ambient temperature samples can lead to inappropriate and expensive process control. ...


Five Reasons Why Chemical Companies Are Switching to Tunable Diode Laser Analyzer Technology

As chemical plants look for ways of maintaining operational excellence and productivity at a reduced cost, naturally they will look at new instrumentation technologies that will give them a leading edge over competitors. When it comes to gas measurement, the use of Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) gas sensors is becoming more and more common in industrial ...


Three reasons to measure pH in-line

Many chemical companies use both in-line pH measurements and lab pH measurements, but rely on the latter for controlling processes. This white paper looks at why this is the case, and why in-line pH measurement with modern sensors is a far better choice. ...


Pump Selection Considerations

A number of factors need to be considered to properly size and specify a vacuum pump.  In some of our previous posts, we’ve discussed topics like how to determine the right flow rate for your new pump.  Considerations such as this are readily evaluated through the use of calculators such as those we have posted ...


VAC 24seven - Dry, Oil-free Alternative for Central Vacuum Pumps

Central vacuum systems often rely on resource-hungry pumps technology like oil-sealed rotary vane or liquid (water) ring pumps.  Both of these pump technologies rely on fluid to create a seal and generate vacuum.  Replacing the sealing fluid imposes significant operating costs – in the form of maintenance, labor, or materials. VAC 24seven pumps are a dry, ...


Vacuum Seminar

Design and integration of vacuum equipment is a specialty – often even a sub-specialty – that spans a variety of industries and disciplines.  A number of unique factors come into play when selecting vacuum equipment that do not arise in the use and selection of other equipment. For those reasons, VACUUBRAND is pleased to offer workshops ...


Reliable, chemical resistant vacuum pumps

VACUUBRAND’s chemical resistant diaphragm pumps are designed and built to run reliably.  With our unique stability core design and overmolded layer of ETFE, our pumps have exceptional mechanical stability that leads to extremely long pump life.  The mechanical stability of the pump head comes from a solid metal core.  This design ensures the dimensional stability ...
