CEP: June 2012

This month's CEP features Process Safety and Corporate Responsibility, Safety Data Sheets, Nitrogen by Pressure Swing Adsortion, and Harnessing Electricity to Operate Valves. Plus, read a special international focus on The Netherlands.


They might be more expensive, but there’s probably no need to cancel your party plans just yet. “There’s lots of helium out there” says John Van Sloun, general manager — worldwide helium at Air Products, “but very little of it is being captured because the economics of doing so are not favorable.”

Decoding Safety Data Sheets

Ronald J. Willey
A safety data sheet holds a wealth of information that can help you safely and effectively handle chemicals in the lab, at the pilot scale, and on the production floor.

Harness Electricity to Operate Valves

Back To Basics
Justin Ledger
Actuators automate valves by converting an input signal into motion. This article explains the basics of electric actuator design and explores the different types of electric actuators.

Producing Nitrogen via Pressure Swing Adsorption

Reactions and Separations
Svetlana Ivanova, Robert Lewis
Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) can be a cost-effective method of onsite nitrogen generation for a wide range of purity and flow requirements.

The Netherlands' Process Technology Networks

Global Outlook
Tjeerd Jongsma, Andrzej Stankiewicz
Marked by a culture of open innovation, the Dutch system of collaboration creates unique opportunities for advances in process technology.
