Industrial Process industries are production processes that are continuous or occurs on a collection of materials that is not distinguishable. Food processing is a typical example of an industrial process. Process industries include beverages, chemicals, rubber, textile, tobacco and many more.
It involves different procedures such as chemical, electrical, physical or mechanical steps to help in the manufacturing of a good or an item that is carried out in very large scale. It is associated with formulas and manufacturing recipes. Industrial processes are key components of heavy industry.
Industrial process changes materials or substances. This process allows production of rare material very much cheaper and making it more economically affordable for people to use the material on a larger scale.
Industrial Process Equipment
- Pumps and Process Equipment – Many manufacturers of food and beverages, cosmetics, personal care, meat or dairy processing industries benefit from a Positive Displacement Pump. It displaces any liquid like juice, fats, oil, cream, milk, and other liquid found in the raw material. The liquid flows into the pump as the cavity on the suction side expands and flows out of the discharge as the cavity collapses. There are several kinds and types of pumps used in industrial process. Some of them are submersible in water. Some are used for chemical monitoring systems.
- Industrial Filters – Filtration is generally the physical or mechanical operation used to separate solid from fluids by using a method through which only the fluid can pass through. The fluid that passes through is called the filtrate. Filtration also refers to some biological processes especially in sewage treatment and water treatment where undesirable elements are removed by absorption into a biological film grown in the filter medium as slow sand filtration. There are different types of industrial filters such as deep bed, roltray, drumtray, filter fabrics, magnetic coolant filters, skimatic oil separator, and centrifugal immersion pumps.
- Valves and Safety Devices – Industrial safety system is a crucial countermeasure used in hazardous plants like oil and gas plants or nuclear plants. They protect human, plant, and environment if ever the process goes beyond the control margins. These systems are used as protection. The process control systems is interlocked with safety systems so that immediate action are taken when there is failure in the process control system. Industrial Safety systems usually employs dedicated systems that certified by SIL 2. SIL applies to both hardware and software requirements such as processors redundancy, cards and voting functions.
