The Industrial Ammonia Refrigeration System and its Benefits...

Dec, 2018 by

In the home, you have air conditioners, refrigerators, and freezers which use a specific type of refrigerant designed for their use. However, in many industrial applications, an ammonia refrigeration system is the best choice. Here is information on this type of cooling and some of the benefits it provides. A Brief History Vapor compression refrigerating systems appeared in the mid 19th Century. The early ammonia refrigeration system was crude by today’s standards but worked well for making ice. Some of the first home refrigerators used ammonia or NH3 as a refrigerant. It later got replaced with Freon refrigerant because NH3 creates fumes which are toxic and can make it difficult to breathe when exposed to it. However, NH3 is still the best refrigerant for industrial systems and here are some reasons why. Efficiency NH3...

Wet Strength Resins—Not All Are Created Equal...

Jun, 2015 by

From paper towels, tissues and filter papers to wallpapers, packing papers and corrugated boxes, many paper products can only fulfill their expected functions satisfactorily if they demonstrate adequate wet strength. What is a wet strength? The ability of paper to maintain a pre-determined strength—up to 50% of the dry paper strength, depending upon the application—after being saturated with a water solution is termed “wet strength.” Wet strength is especially important to the adequate performance of paper bags and containerboard products that are expected to transport foods or beverages which will cause the packaging to get wet due to the moisture content of the food itself, changes in temperature that induce melting and condensation, or environmental exposure to moisture. Minimizing the risk of packaging failure is critical to maintain product integrity throughout the handling timeline...
