Pumps handicapped by not using best available technology https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/august-2019/special-focus-valves-pumps-and-turbomachinery/pumps-handicapped-by-not-using-best-available-technology Pump lubrication deficiencies are often denied, and the outstanding reliability performance of oil mist is vastly underreported. An evolving approach to digitalization https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/july-2019/the-industrial-internet-of-things/an-evolving-approach-to-digitalization Much has been written in recent years about the need for refineries to embrace the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Adapting and prospering in the energy transition https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/july-2019/sustainability/adapting-and-prospering-in-the-energy-transition The energy transition is gathering momentum as pressure from society leads policy makers and investors to demand faster and deeper cuts to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from all industrial sectors. Engineering Case Histories: Case 107: Weld failures in vibrating equipment https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/june-2019/columns/engineering-case-histories-case-107-weld-failures-in-vibrating-equipment Vibrating equipment can be machines, such as vibrating screens, conveyor pans or a combination of both, that are designed to transport, sort or dry materials. Reliability: Know the pitfalls of excessively high oil viscosity https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/june-2019/columns/reliability-know-the-pitfalls-of-excessively-high-oil-viscosity Since its inception in June 1990, more than half of the 347 “HP Reliability” columns published in Hydrocarbon Processing have incorporated consulting experiences and communications that span the globe. Industry Perspectives: What topics do you want to hear about? https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/june-2019/trends-resources/industry-perspectives-what-topics-do-you-want-to-hear-about Throughout Hydrocarbon Processing’s 97 yr of publishing technical material for the refining and petrochemical industries, the journal has focused on numerous topics to optimize downstream processing facility operations. Separate fine solid particles from dusty air with a uniflow cyclone https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/may-2019/process-optimization/separate-fine-solid-particles-from-dusty-air-with-a-uniflow-cyclone Fine particles are usually collected by dry collectors, wet collectors, electrostatic precipitators and filters, at the commercial level.
