Solving the Technology Demands of the Refining & Petrochemical Industries
Posted Monday February 1 at 10:30pm
CD-adapco will host Simulation to Solve Changing Technology Demands of the Refining & Petrochemical Industries on February 25th in Houston, Texas.

The refining and petrochemical industries are undergoing tremendous change. On one hand, the influx of cheap shale gas demands fuel flexibility of combustion processes in crackers. On the other hand, crudes are becoming heavier, but the requirements on sulfur content in fuels are becoming more stringent to meet pollution control regulations. All of this results in the demand of cutting-edge technology that can meet the needs and reduce cost of production at the same time.

The Quality of Cream and CFD
Posted Sunday January 31 at 7:19pm
Cream is an oil-in-water emulsion consisting of dairy fat extracted from whole milk by centrifugal separation. If the stresses created by the separation process are too high, the cream undergoes a phase transition that transforms it into a water-in-oil emulsion known as butter.

Minimizing stresses is especially important during the cream's final cooling storage process, which determines the quality of the cream. To produce high quality cream, the production facility must maintain a uniformly cold stirring tank which generates "instant" cooling effects while minimizing the stresses to the cream.
