Hundreds of new products

With hundreds of resources all in one place, attendees will find the latest products that fit a broad spectrum of processes that use fluids, powders and gas in their operations.

Products such as mixers, dryers, filters, reactors, heat exchangers, scrubbers, centrifuges, controls, vessels, safety and environmental products and more will be represented among the 600 different types of products on display.

The Chem Show gives attendees access to product experts as well as other knowledgeable professionals who can point the way to help streamline plant operations while showing how these products benefit production and reduce costs. While process equipment takes center stage, other equipment that plays an important role in overall operations will also be on display.

Pump products to be unveiled include:

  • Packaged pumping system equipped with simple site connections to ensure ease of installation and startup on-site – They can be customized and have Industrial Internet of Things capabilities.
  • Portable sanitary pump system – a centrifugal sanitary pump mounted on a portable cart with a high-efficiency motor and speed controller.
  • Magnetically driven gear pump that can transfer or meter more than 20 gallons per minute without leakage.
  • Metering pump that can operate at flow rates up to 108.6 ml/min at pressures up to 98 Bar, with near-zero pulsation and reproducible accuracy of up to 99.9 percent.

Controls, meters and instruments on display will include:

  • Ultrasonic flowmeter that can measure tiny volume flows from 4 to 1,500 ml/min with high precision, high linearity and low pressure drop. The exterior is rated to IP67 (dust-tight and can withstand temporary immersion in water). The user interface is a capacitive touchscreen, and the onboard proportional-integral-derivative controller can drive a control valve or pump.
  • Multiparameter mass flowmeter that provides measurements of volumetric and mass flow rates, plus pressure and temperature indications of process gases.
  • Windows 10 tablet computer for use in Class 1, Division 2 areas, will be on display along with a variety of similar products from other exhibitors.

35 best-practices seminars

The free Chem Show Educational Seminar Program is designed to impart usable, actionable solutions to current issues that affect production performance, efficiency and best practices.
