Summer Safety Tips:SUN

Enjoy summer fun without getting hurt! The next 4 weeks we'll discuss some Tips to Keep You Safe this Summer, from Sun & Heat to Bugs & Burns. 

The sun's rays may feel good, but they're no friend to your skin. Here are 9 Tips to Keep you Safe in the SUN:

Flexible Packaging in Real Life

For the past couple weeks we shined the spotlight on the Flexible Packaging application; WHAT exactly is the application and WHERE do the hazards lie. This week let's discuss WHY you would need monitoring, by looking at real life applications:

Hazards in the Flexible Packaging Process

The majority of flexible packaging is printed using either the rotogravure or the flexographic printing process.

Application Spotlight: Flexible Packaging

Flexible packaging is defined as any package or any part of a package whose shape can be readily changed, typically taking the shape of a bag, pouch, liner, or overwrap. It includes packaging made with paper, plastic, film, foil, metalized or coated paper, or a combination of any of these materials. They are used for consumer and institutional products and in industrial applications, to protect, market, and distribute a vast array of products.

Join Us for a Process Heating Webinar 6/12/18

Join us for a webinar we're sponsoring on Tuesday, 6/12 @ 2pm EDT (free for all registrants) with Process Heating Magazine, Design, Operation and Troubleshooting Ovens and Furnaces. As the title suggests, it covers three main aspects of ovens and furnaces: design, operation and — when trouble rears its head — troubleshooting.

Coil Coating in Real Life

For the past couple weeks we discussed the Coil Coating application; WHAT the application entails and HOW to solve the problems unique to that tough environment. This week let's discuss WHY you would need monitoring, by looking at real life applications:

Please Join Us for FLEXO's Tech Talk Webinar, Tuesday May 22 @ 11am EDT (Free for All Registrants), where we will be presenting our ideas about Flammability Monitoring and Your Printing Line.

Do you have trouble selecting a flammability analyzer? Have you noticed that the analyzer you used for a previous job isn't always the right choice for another application?

Though the instrument of choice may vary from one application to the next, selecting the right process flammability analyzer will optimize your plant safety and production speed.

Solving Coil Coating Problems

There are 3 problems that constantly arise in coil coating applications that the installation of a solvent vapor monitoring system can solve:

Application Spotlight: Coil Coating

Coil Coating is a high-temperature solvent vapor monitoring application in which rolls of aluminum or steel are coated with a color finish, oven cured to desired specs and sold to makers of cans, rain gutters, home appliances, building & automotive products and other fabrications. Coil coating ovens typically operate at high temperatures, with some zones at over 800°F. This temperature range is needed to cure organic polymer coatings to their substrate materials.
