  1. Detecting Needles And Wire In Food Manufacturing

    There are many threats to the world food supply—and once adulteration is suspected or known, global exports and the supply chain to end users can come to a halt. This paper will examine foreign object detection in adulteration events—including discussion of the particular detection challenges in finding very small contaminants such as needles and wire in a complex and fast-moving, global supply chain of perishable products.

  2. Trim Your Compressed Air “Waste” Line, One Pound At A Time

    Anyone with a compressed air system is familiar with leaks, the energy and money losses caused by them, and the headaches associated with preventing and fixing them. What many people don’t consider though is artificial demand.


  3. The Art Of Dryer Sizing

    Compressed air dryers are commonly rated to achieve a specific moisture level (e.g. 40°F pressure dew point) for a certain volume of air flow (cfm). This nominal flow rating is typically based on a set of standard conditions (100 psig, 100° F inlet temperature, and 100° F ambient temperature). In practice, your actual conditions can change from day to day and are rarely the standard conditions, and the dryer may be over or undersized depending on how it is selected.

  4. Don’t Bypass Reliability Or Air Quality

    One of the many considerations in putting together a compressed air system is whether or not to include manual bypasses around air treatment. There are different schools of thought concerning this practice, but before you go with including them for the sake of convenience, be sure to understand how it can affect your air quality.
