24/04/2017 - The robotic revolution in life sciences
As the life sciences industry looks to address today’s production challenges, Neal Welch of Mitsubishi Electric explains how in demanding applications such as the manipulating of live cultures, robots are in a league of their own.
12/04/2017 - Do SMEs need to push for more process automation in Food & Beverage industry?
Most large scale food processing plants have already grasped the advantages of improved automation and used them to minimise production costs and boost productivity. However, some medium and smaller scale businesses, although appreciative of the benefits, remain reticent about the process of implementation and how the latest technology will combine with an existing installation.

03/04/2017 - Heat exchanger selection tips for food producers
When it comes to choosing the right heat exchanger for a particular situation, there is no substitute for professional advice, but you will have a better handle on the process if you have a basic understanding of the factors which need to be considered. These can be broadly divided into commercial considerations and technical considerations.

Process-industry professionals are under constant pressure to help increase their company’s market share, ensure compliance with ever-tightening regulations, and find new opportunities to improve productivity.
25/01/2017 - Rockwell: You Really Can Use Mobile Devices in the Plant
Anyone with a smartphone or tablet now can connect securely in an industrial setting to access performance metrics and data analytics. You can use any digital device to easily access performance metrics and data analytics from your plant floor and machines. How are you using that freedom?
04/01/2017 - HRS Heat Exchangers: A food plant guide to obtaining PAS 110 Certification for anaerobic digestate
‘PAS 110’: six characters which, depending on your point of view either strike terror into your heart or show the wider world, and customers in particular, the attention to detail and quality that lies behind your AD process and your digestate.
Traditionally, the automotive industry has led the way to use robots on a large scale. However, if used without care, robots can be dangerous to humans. Back in 1961 when General Motors introduced the first industrial robot to its production line, humans were at high risk inside a robot’s work zone. Since that time, robot manufacturers such as FANUC have spent enormous effort and money to produce models with the best possible safety levels.
02/11/2016 - What’s New in Industrial Access Control?
Physical and logical security in manufacturing plants and other industrial firms is a pressing and persistent concern. Controlling access to and within the site and protecting information and automation systems from breaches is essential. Physical or digital security lapses, whether accidental or malicious, can cause significant damage, particularly when it harms personnel, the equipment or environment, or impacts quality.
12/10/2016 - Busting the myths about food pasteurisation
Pasteurisation has been established as a key method of destroying pathogenic bacteria in the food and drink industry since its invention in the middle of the nineteenth century, although the origins of heating wine for preservation go back to China in the 1100s. However, as food and drink processing becomes more complex and food chains longer, the importance of pasteurisation has increased.
19/09/2016 - Hinkley C decision heralds UK nuclear renaissance
The UK government’s much delayed decision to proceed with the country’s first nuclear power station in a generation has been welcomed by IChemE. The agreement, which is still to be confirmed in an exchange of letters between the government and EDF, will give a green light to the construction of a new 3.2GW power station at Hinkley point in Somerset, UK. The £20bn project is based around two pressurised water reactors designed by Areva and will create 25,000 jobs across the nuclear supply chain during the construction phase.
