Displacement Pumps: Screw Pump

What is a Screw Pump? A Screw Pump is a rotary, positive displacement pump that can have more than one screw to transfer high or low viscosity fluids along an axis. Single Screw A single screw rotary pump is also known as a progressive cavity or PC pump. The single screw pump consist of only […]

Instrumentation Basics: Measurement

Measurement Variables Measurement and control of process variables within a production, or manufacturing area is defined as Instrumentation. An instrument is a device that measures and/or regulates physical quanity/ process variables such as… Flow Temperature Level Pressure Instrumentation plays a key part in the automation of modern day process operations. There are many variables that […]

Globe Valves

What are Globe Valves? Globe valves are a highly common valve in the process industry. They be used for on/off applications, but are generally used for precise throttling applications. Globe valves have a greater pressure drop across the valve then other of valves. This pressure drop occurs, due to a 90 degree turn, the process […]

Process Technology: Jet Pumps

What are Jet Pumps? Jet pumps are used to lift liquid from a well. A specially-designed jet is engineered to utilize the venturi effect. The venturi effect is a drop in fluid pressure that results when an incompressible fluid flows through a constricted section of pipe. Operation of Jet Pumps In order for jet pumps […]

Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal Force            Centrifugal pumps are a Dynamic type pump that operate on the principle of centrifugal force. Centrifugal force is a force that tends to move objects away from the center in a system undergoing circular motion.   Basic Components The casing on a centrifugal pump is designed to contain […]

Testing the Voltage before Touching

Testing a Voltage Before Touching Could Save Your Life! In this procedure, we will be looking at the “Test Before Touch” method when properly confirming a circuit is de-energized. We will review the following concepts: The Test Before Touch Principles Key learning by one company The TBT procedure Other testing concerns Most of our discussion […]
