As process temperatures go up, the challenges for the flow control equipment increase gradually. Stepping above 250 °C requires most of the plastics and polymers to be abandoned and the selection of metallic materials instead. Furthermore, when the temperature rises above 600 °C, the challenges with the suitability of the materials require even more careful attention.
Energy transition and the move toward greener energy production is a hot topic also for our flow control customers who are exploring and investing in new ways to produce more sustainable energy. What is the biggest challenge for valves? What is the winning technology for producing future energy?
As the world population surges toward the 10 billion mark, the demand for plastics is due to increase exponentially. In this first blog, we explore the requirements of this rapidly evolving industry and application, and the flow control solutions available to facilitate future developments.
The global climate is warming up and countries and individual companies are seeking ways to reduce their emissions to slow down climate change. Looking at oil refineries, one may wonder from where their own emissions emerge.
