The pH scale was devised by the Danish chemist Soren Peder Lauritz Sorensen at the Carlsberg Laboratory in 1909 and later modified to its modern form in 1924 to accommodate definitions and measurements in terms of electrochemical cells. The “pH” stands for “power of hydrogen” and represents...

Sandymount makes a skidded system that takes beer from breweries and turns it into a “concentrate” so that it can be more easily transported across the country and world, where it can be brought back to original form by adding water and then bottled. This saves the brewer from...

Designed for chemical and water processing applications, the three-inch non-metallic pump can transfer up to 285 gpm (1079 lpm) of fluid without causing the type of damage possible from smaller capacity pumps that use higher pressures. This is a key feature for customers who want to maintain fluid integrity.

Although the United States is known as the leader in bioethanol production and use, U.S. biodiesel production in January 2019 was 144 million gallons, with production in the Midwest accounting for 65 percent of that total. Read this article for an overview of the esterification process and learn about the unique requirements for biodiesel equipment and especially pumping systems for biodiesel production.

Biofuels are the answer to today’s energy concerns. While Europe is currently the leader in biodiesel production and consumption, the U.S. leads the way in bioethanol. In bioethanol distillation, water in the ethanol must be removed. Pumping systems used in ethanol distillation have special requirements, such as high flow and high fiber capability, precise temperature control and reliability. All ethanol distillation equipment must...
