Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a cryogenic natural gas, cooled to its liquid state of minus 162 degrees Celsius (minus 260 degrees Fahrenheit). In converting natural gas to LNG, the volume is reduced by about 600 times, allowing it to be stored and transported effectively.
The transfer and bunkering of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) involves ships, tanker trucks and onshore facilities.
For those in the dairy industry today, maintaining hygienic equipment is crucial for ensuring food product safety and the public’s health.
55,000 manufacturing jobs were added in the U.S. in the first half of this year, according to an online article by CNN Money on July 3rd. Manufacturing jobs boost the economy and lower the unemployment rates, as well as contribute to a feeling of patriotism in our country. It’s true. We take pride in the “Made in the USA” labels we see on goods, and feel good when we support U.S. manufacturing by purchasing those products.
The saying ‘Time is money’ certainly proves true when you’re staring at a deadline. Falling behind – even slightly – will delay results and expectations. But making up for lost time can prove disastrous.
Many times, instead of paying someone to perform a task for us, we make the decision to do it ourselves to save time, and maybe a few dollars. We live in a D-I-Y society, after all. However, just because we can do it doesn’t mean that we should or that we are even remotely qualified to do so.
Caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) is widely used in the manufacturing of many products—including pulp and paper, soap and detergent, and mineral oils—and for metal processing and glassmaking.
A common challenge in maintaining equipment used in hydraulic fracturing operations is eliminating and preventing leaks of hazardous and non-hazardous fluids. Equipment such as blenders, hydration units, and missiles contain several flange adapters, each having welds and threads. The costs of safety, environmental, and maintenance continue to increase as the equipment is used in this demanding service.
Is sand drop out causing flow restriction in your pumps? Are you experiencing regular leaks along weld seams? You’re not alone, many hydraulic fracturing companies experience pump cavitation due to proppant dropout which causes destructive flow restrictions. Dixon’s research with end users has uncovered valuable feedback that helped guide us to an economical solution.
