What Are Closed-Loop Chillers? Closed-loop chillers are used to exchange heat from industrial or commercial applications by running coolant through a closed-loop system. These chillers use various kinds of coolant, including water, glycol and oil-based coolants. Many processes today rely on chiller systems that are closed-loop. For example, data servers run by large tech companies […]
Semiconductors are used in just about every computing device we use today. But how do semiconductors work? In order to understand semiconductor devices, we first need to review what a semiconductor is at the atomic level.
Carboys are really nothing fancy: just a large plastic or glass container, usually with a narrow neck and opening. It’s what’s on the inside that’s important. Carboys are often used in lab settings to store ionized water and solvents and in brewing for fermentation. In each of these applications, carboys may require some assistance in […]
A heat exchanger is a system that transfers heat between substances, through the movement of a cooling medium (fluid or air). They are used for both heating and cooling in a wide range of industrial applications: power stations, computer processors, chemical plants, food and beverage processing, refineries, refrigeration, space heating/cooling, combustion engines, and more.
Plastic products today would not exist without careful temperature control for both process heating and cooling. Injection molding requires that some plastics be heated all the way to 550° F. Because of these high temperatures, proper cooling can be one of the most essential steps in the entire plastic manufacturing process.
