Safety Matters: Best In Class

The CalorVal Solution

One of our customers that manufactures solvents, polymers and intermediary chemicals, was looking to meet specific requirements set by the state for flare stack operation. The area of concern was measuring BTUs. The solution was a reliable & proven analyzer.

Are you Monitoring your Industrial Facility Correctly?

Industrial manufacturing facilities use a variety of hazardous gases and solvents in their production processes. Whenever these substances are transported, processed or stored, the potential risks are high for hazardous conditions. These substances must be continuously monitored to protect personnel and facilities from accidental releases or leakage.

CIC Becomes FTA Member

Control Instruments Corporation has become a member of the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). The primary goal of the FTA and its Foundation is to provide a platform for flexographers to network, learn and exchange ideas – all in the name of advancing the art and science of the flexographic print process. Together we look forward to helping provide a wealth of products, services and shared cutting-edge knowledge to the flexo industry.

Energy Savings

Control Instruments’ Products do more than keep your facility and employees safe, installation can help with rising fuel and energy costs, while complying with the necessary codes & regulations.

By implementing some of our products within your process heating operations, you too can cost-effectively reduce energy use, carbon emissions, and costs while increasing economic viability:

CalorVal Obtains FM and ATEX Approvals

Control Instruments Corporation’s CalorVal BTU Analyzer has received both FM and ATEX approvals worldwide. This product monitors the heating value and energy content of flammable solvents and combustible gases in the BTU range, to measure alternate fuel supplies.

White Paper: Continuous Monitoring of the Calorific Value of Mixed Gaseous Fuels

New Literature Announcement

It is becoming increasingly important to measure the energy of fuels formed by complex mixtures of combustible and non-combustible gases and vapors that vary in concentration or composition over time due to changing conditions. Non-traditional fuel sources – whether they are the undesirable by-products of chemical processes that must be destroyed so they are not released into the atmosphere, or fuels used as alternative energy sources from landfills, biomass, and the like - present some measurement challenges.

White Paper: Safety Ventilation to Reduce Costs

New Literature Announcement

Energy is a significant cost of production. As energy costs rise and fall, the increases are difficult to pass on to customers in the price of products and services. But regardless of current energy costs and current trends, a more energy-efficient process is more competitive.

Safe drying of solvents requires excess ventilation air. Extra air keeps the vaporized solvents well below the concentration where they might burn or explode. A lot of energy goes towards heating ventilation air to the drying temperature.

US Department of Energy Recognizes Use of LFL Monitoring Equipment

In their Energy Tip Sheet #11 the US Department of Energy recognizes that LFL monitoring equipment, like the PrevEx Flammability Analyzer, can improve the efficiency of the solvent removal process and significantly lower process energy requirements.

These Tip Sheets are a part of the DOE’s “BestPractices” program and can be downloaded from their website at:
