The High Cost of Compressed Air System Leaks

Compressed air systems are essential for a range of industrial and manufacturing processes…and the fact is, they leak. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the estimated average leakage rate for compressed air systems is 25%, though it can be much higher. Compressed air leaks are too often overlooked, considered an inevitability. However, they come

Non-Chemical Catalytic Scale Prevention

Scaling caused by hard water can lead to major problems. It can block nozzles, coat pipework, clog boilers and heat exchangers, and cause substantially increased energy use. Scaling can give rise to the need for chemicals or expensive water softening equipment to prevent it from forming and causing pollution. If no treatment is used, then


Why Do You Need a Mechanical Seal Support System?

The primary task of a seal support system is to provide cooling and lubrication of mechanical seal faces, in order to reduce frictional heat. This is accomplished through a controlled flow of clean, cool water or oil, or, where processes cannot tolerate contamination by water or oil barrier fluids, by an inert gas (e.g. air


Top 5 Reasons for Manufacturing Air Compressor Failure

Manufacturing facilities rely heavily on air compressors to keep operations running smoothly, but when they go down it can cause a severe lack of production as well as lost time and profits. With that in mind, here are the top five reasons for air compressor failure so that you can avoid air compressor problems before

Heat Exchangers, Parts & Repairs

For heat exchangers, parts and repairs, we’re often asked at C&B Equipment why we represent several heat exchanger manufacturers and repair centers. One reason is that a factory with the infrastructure to build equipment for the pharmaceutical industry has internal costs that make them non-competitive for food/beverage/dairy applications. As such, a plant equipped to properly
