Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 5 – Compressor Capacity

Posted on August 17th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed the incineration and atomization processes. The fact that the compressor currently unloads indicates that there is additional air compressor capacity that is currently not being used. Continue reading “Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 5 – Compressor Capacity” »

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” »

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 3 – The Atomization Process

Posted on July 24th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Liquid hazardous waste needs to be in contact with oxygen at a high temperature in order to combust and be destroyed. These liquids are typically injected into the hot gas stream through spray nozzles that are designed to transform the liquid stream into droplets that are more easily combusted.

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 2 – The Incineration Process

Posted on July 6th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

In layman’s terms, the incineration process involves the creation of a ball of fire into which hazardous waste is introduced and subsequently destroyed. There is (of course) much more to it than that. Continue reading “Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 2 – The Incineration Process” »
