Back Pressure Regulators at Auburn University

  • Auburn Fischer-Tropsch skid

Researchers around the world use the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis process to produce liquid fuels from
alternative energy sources such as biomass and natural gas. At Auburn University in Alabama, one
graduate student has incorporated an Equilibar back pressure regulator to dramatically improve their
research of Fischer-Tropsch catalysts.

In the early twentieth century, Franz Fischer and Hans Tropsch developed the Fischer-Tropsch process to produce hydrocarbons from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis process allows for the production of synthetic fuel from natural gas, coal, and biofuels.

Meeting the challenges of vacuum holding applications

Vacuum technology is commonly used to hold objects in place for processing or positioning. Vacuum table, vacuum conveyor and vacuum pick-and-place operations are examples of this type of application. In most vacuum holding applications, flow rate and pressure vary significantly during start-up and when disruptions occur in the manufacturing process. While some vacuum applications are Read More
