In case history featurettes, “The Smart Elbow- Built to Endure” describes how replacing worn sweep elbows inpneumatic, liquid, slurry and steam conveying lines with Smart Elbowseliminated frequent leaks along with their resulting costs in productloss, repair and replacement, production line downtime and product andfacility contamination while preventing exposure to OSHA and EPAcompliance risk. The case history featurettes highlight installationsin water/wastewater treatment, power generation, trash-to-energy and avariety of processing plants including food, beverage, plastics andpharmaceuticals.Developed for process engineers, plant managers, maintenance engineersand other professionals, the literature provides a detailed costanalysis from an actual installation illustrating how the Smart Elbowsaved a processor $169,600.00 over five years vs. long radius sweepelbows.
