Simon Barrett, Area Manager at Xylem advises on six things an engineer and systems designer for commercial buildings must consider for trouble-free operation in a wastewater pumping station.
SEEPEX has developed a new system to improve dewatered sludge handling, enabling long distance transfer with reduced operational costs by using a combination of PC pump technology and dense-phase conveying.
The challenges associated with process systems operating in highly corrosive marine and salt water environments, requires amongst many things, control valves which are designed to provide high corrosive resistance.
Manufacturers are increasingly looking for ways to reduce the operating costs of their plant and equipment and cutting the cost of maintenance is currently very much in the spotlight as one way of achieving this.
Affecting every industry globally the “Industrial Internet of Things” (IIoT) is the melding of digital, physical, and biological environments.
IO-Link is a breakthrough technology that has achieved rapid and widespread acceptance over the past five years and helped ‘join the dots’ for many industrial processes working towards Industry 4.0.
What if it was possible to develop a machine learning model capable of predicting that a critical element of your manufacturing equipment is at risk of breaking down – and order spare parts well in advance? Or what if you had access to an industrial controller with built-in artificial intelligence, that uses pattern recognition to predict an unwarranted deviation on your filling line that you otherwise would never have detected?
Why should we be happy to embrace Edge computing so soon after we got used to the cloud, IoT, Industry 4.0 etc…?
Choosing a spring from a catalogue may seem like an easy answer, especially if it offers the cheapest option. Not so, argues Emma Burgon, Engineering Director at William Hughes, who maintains that selecting a spring purely on grounds of cost can prove a false economy, especially when production line inefficiencies are taken into consideration.
