Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 10 – Economics (Capital Costs)

Posted on October 31st, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed incineration, atomization and their associated operational costs. Implementation of this project will require changes to the existing equipment and existing operation. Continue reading “Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 10 – Economics (Capital Costs)” »

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 9 – Economics (Atomizing Air vs. Atomizing Steam Production)

Posted on October 13th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed incineration, atomization, stack losses and plant air production. From previous discussion, atomizing approximately 210 lb/min of liquid waste would require approximately 70 lb/min of atomization gas, which corresponds to 4200 lb/hr of steam or 933 cfm (70 lb/min / 0.075 lb/ft3) of atomizing air.

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 4 – Atomization Reliability

Posted on August 8th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed sustainability as related to process control, the incineration process and the atomization process, whereby discussion indicated that it might make sense to atomize with air instead of steam. Continue reading “Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 4 – Atomization Reliability” »
