    Dixon's King Crimp® System: An Overview

    09/06/2021

    If there’s one potential mishap on your work site or plant that’s particularly damaging--but easy to avoid--it’s an improperly crimped hose. Ensuring a properly coupled hose assembly is critical to providing an effective fluid handling solution.

    Bellows Seal Valves: A Primer

    When it’s critically important to keep a gas or liquid inside a system, consider a bellows seal valve.

The bellows gets compressed when the valve is in the open position and expands when the valve is closed. Because the bellows expands and contracts as the valve is operated, and because it is welded to the stem and bonnet, there is no...

    The Future State of Energy Infrastructure

    America's Terminal Market-A Brief History

    05/02/2021

    At the turn of the 20th century, there were just over 8,000 automobiles in the United States. By 1910 that number had grown to nearly 500,000. Today there are over 285 million motor vehicles on the road.

    The transition from the horse-drawn carriage to the automobile is an amazing story that didn’t just happen overnight. By many accounts, it took over fifty years for Americans to replace their trusted horses with the new and unfamiliar technology. Horses had been mankind’s dependable...

    The chlor-alkali industry is broken down into three distinct business types. Each has its own set of data, including incident reports and market tracking.

    2. Sodium hypochlorite manufacturers produce sodium hypochlorite by using chlorine that was produced outside of the facility.
    3. Packagers receive chlorine in bulk. Their task is to package the product into...
