The drive by some chemical companies to improve energy efficiency extends well beyond their production processes. Indeed, steam is a major focus and innovations in water-related energy efficiency are top of mind. But great care must also accompany the pursuit of efficiency. Engineers understand the role of insulation for heat conservation and freeze protection. But pipe installation on jackets, coils, reactors and heat exchangers is tricky.
To help you avoid costly and sometimes deadly steam mistakes, Chemical Processing has put together an eHandbook. It includes insight on:
Energy Efficiency Soars -- Broad-ranging efforts are providing substantial savings.
Provide Better Protection from Hot Pipes -- Use more conservative limits for insulation skin temperature.
Keep Cool Designing Heat Exchanger Piping -- Consider these points when working with exchangers, coils and jackets.
