Polyethylene Tanks’ Popularity is No Accident

If it weren’t for a handful of accident-prone scientists, we might never have gained access to many of the polymerized hydro- and fluorocarbons we’ve come to know and love over the past two centuries. Teflon, for example, was discovered by a guy in New Jersey who couldn’t figure out why his tetrafluoroethylene got all gunked up in its flask. So he cut it open with a hacksaw and, voila, Teflon. Polyethylene was discovered under similar circumstances. In 1898 Hans von Pechmann, a chemist at the renowned University of Greifswald in the German city of same name, was heating up some diazomethane (you know – for fun), which happened to produce a white, waxy substance. Von Pechmann and his colleagues, upon observation of the long methylene chains that composed the material, named the stuff “polymethylene.” Somewhere along the line, either because of Anglicization, laziness or maybe a typo, we lost the “m,” and “polyethylene” permanently entered the chemistry and engineering lexica.

A Primer on Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Dynamic Air Inc., a major leader in the dense phase pneumatic conveying industry, is a specialist in the pneumatic conveying of dry, bulk solids. Applications range from food to poison, from light fumed silica to heavy powdered metals. However, all of these applications have one thing in common, the necessity to control the conveying velocity in order to control particle degradation, conveying pipe wear, minimize air consumption, or eliminate pipe line plugging. What is Pneumatic Conveying? Pneumatic conveying is nothing more than creating a pressure differential along a pipeline and moving a bulk material along with the air as the air moves towards the area of lower pressure. This can be done with a vacuum inducer, or with compressed air being injected into one end of or along the pipeline. Dilute Phase vs. Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying The two most distinct categories of pneumatic conveying can be described as either low pressure (dilute phase) or high pressure (dense phase) systems.
