Safety Features Designed into a Gas Panel

Original equipment manufacturers around the world utilize a range of gases in their operations. The type of gas that’s used is based on the desired outcome of that specific process, whether it requires combustion, cutting, coating, treatment or a variety of other applications. Once the appropriate gas is selected, manufacturers look for the most efficientRead more

Custom Tube Bending is Ideal for Plastic Piping Kits

When we think of tube bending, we often associate it with metal manufacturing applications, and soft metals that can be bent in large and small radiuses for different purposes. Yet for many industries, such as certain chemical and life sciences manufacturers, metals are problematic because the chemicals that are being produced can erode the material.Read more

Metal manufacturing Allows for the Creation of Superior Manifold Devices

In manufacturing processes in the chemical, alternate energy, or biomedical life science industries, there are instances where gas or liquid must be distributed to different sources after it enters a centralized pipe or piece of equipment. Additionally, the flow of these liquids and gases might have to be kept at a various rates; certain productionRead more

Understand the Gas Characteristics to Design the Right Gas Cabinet

Designing gas cabinets to hold cylinders is an effective way of employing a centralized gas delivery system for workers and ensuring an easier way to change out spent cylinders without hampering production. When considering adding, repairing or improving a gas cabinet, manufacturers need to keep in mind the special characteristics of each type of gasRead more

What is Process Piping and How Does it Differ from Plumbing?

When we talk about gases, water, chemicals and other liquids passing through pipework and components, we usually refer to that pipework as plumbing. Yet in many instances in the manufacturing world, the pipes that are used in the transmission of fluids and gases may actually be considered process piping instead.Read more

Contract Manufacturing Companies Helping Chemical Industries Lower Their Repair Downtime

Chemical manufacturing industries are producing chemicals at great rates for a wide variety of applications and products used by other companies around the globe. Some of these chemical processes are going through immense pressures and temperatures that can quickly wear out pipe and tubing systems running from storage tanks, transportation processes, and holding facilities.Read more
