Proper filtration is essential to process flow operation. Improper filtration or lack of filtration can wreak havoc on components, reducing their life and changing the final product. If left unaddressed, this can lead to equipment failure, process upsets, increased quality issues and in some cases, unplanned shutdown. Thus, making an investment in the correct filter for the process is a wise choice.
Varnish is a common problem for a wide range of hydraulic fluids and lubricants, especially in turbine and plastic injection molding applications. It results in valve sticking, shorter fluid life, shorter filter life and unscheduled downtime.

Achieving effective catalyst regeneration requires a process that produces a very high level of heat in a very efficient manner. Over the years, there have been several different approaches to create this required heat. Traditional steam has been a popular choice as well as heated transfer media. However, these methods have limitations.
