Why is it important to descale? 1 Periodic descaling helps prevent Legionnaire’s disease bacteria. Cooler tubes often become caked with algae, mud, scale and sludge. These also develop in the water that accumulates in a cooling tower’s basin floor. Unfortunately, Legionella bacteria thrive in this environment. Descaling would remove the scale, sediments, and slime [...]

Descaling is the removal of limescale for industrial and domestic water users in hard water areas. What is hard water? It’s a water that has high calcium or magnesium ions content (>≈ 1.2 mM ) acquired during its passage through calcium or magnesium-containing rock such as limestone or chalk. The amount of dissolved calcium [...]

Previously, we talked about what an actuator is, and we can now start to see the different types of Actuators Thermal actuators are actuators that convert thermal energy into movement. One type of thermal actuator is a bimetallic strip, a strip made from two different metals such as steel and copper. [...]

Gate Valves

A gate valve is the most common type of valve used in any process plant. It is a linear motion valve used to start or stop fluid flow. Gate valves are designed for fully-open or fully-closed service. They are installed in pipelines as isolating valves and should not be used as control or regulating valves. [...]
