Nature gas pipeline is a kind of pipe specially used for gas transportation.Steel is one of the major raw materials used in manufacturing natural gas pipelines and studies have shown that the cost of steel amounts to almost 16% of the total cost for manufacturing one mile of gas pipeline. As a result, the current trend of decreasing steel prices will signifiacntly drive the growth of the natural gas pipeline market in the next few years. Though the rise in energy prices increases the manufacturi ...

Natural gas storage involves accumulation of natural gas in several storage facilities for future consumption. The purpose of storage is to meet the fluctuating energy demand during the peak and off-peak seasons. Generally, natural gas is stored during the off-peak season and utilized during the peak season. This reduces the demand and supply gap, and increases the reliability of supply.Storage facilities are essential for managing supply required to cater to globally rising energy demand. Rapid ...

Neoprene (also polychloroprene or pc-rubber) is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. Neoprene is sold either as solid rubber or in latex form, and is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan ...

Nickel belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile. Pure nickel, powdered to maximize the reactive surface area, shows a significant chemical activity, but larger pieces are slow to react with air under standard conditions because an oxide layer forms on the surface and prevents further corrosion (passivation). Nickel is used as the cathode material for lithium-ion batteries and used in increasingly large quantities. The demand for nickel base metal in the battery industry is furthe ...

N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) is an important polar solvent with strong selectivity and stability. It is a colorless oily liquid and has slight amine odor, which can be soluble in water, alcohols, ethers, esters, ketones, halogenated hydrocarbons, aromatics and castor oil.Manufacturers have developed a new technique to produce N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone due to the growing concerns about the depletion of fossil fuels and non-renewable resources. The cyclization of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) to 2-p ...

Noble gases are tasteless, odorless, colorless and inflammable; they also have a volatile nature, allowing changes as per application which gains a competitive edge over other regular gases.Demand for noble gases has been rising particularly in energy-efficient lighting systems and in window-insulation. Since noble gases are inert in nature and do not react with other elements, demand has increased in applications where oxidation or other reactions are undesirable. Non-reaction to heat makes nob ...

Beverage packaging provides product support, tampering resistance, and protection from the external environment to beverages. This packaging helps in the distribution of beverages in a secure manner among the value chain and decreases the chances of post-production damage. These drinks do not contain alcohol and act as a feasible alternative to alcohol, since they are more sophisticated and are a premium alternative to regular soft drinks. Many people are choosing premium soft drinks in bars and ...

Non-Ferrous Metals do not contain Iron, are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals. Non-Ferrous Metals do not contain Iron, are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals. The most common non-ferrous metals used for casting are aluminum, magnesium, zinc, and copper-based alloys. Metal casting is a manufacturing process in which a molten or a liquid metal is poured into a mold made of sand or ceramic plaster. The mold contain ...

Expansion joints are compensating parts used for facilitating relative movements and thermal expansion in pipelines, machines, and containers. The basic design of an expansion joint consists of bellows with connectors at both ends. A non-metallic expansion joint is a compensator that absorbs thermal and mechanical shock or stress in a pipeline system for the smooth and efficient functioning of the system.Non-Metallic Expansion Joints (NMEJ) offers a number of advantages, especially in plant desi ...

Non-metallic mineral reserves consist of stone quarries and clay and sand pits; chemical and fertiliser mineral deposits; salt deposits; deposits of quartz, gypsum, natural gem stones, asphalt and bitumen, peat and other non-metallic minerals other than coal and petroleum.Manufacturers of ceramic tiles are incorporating advanced technologies such as 3D printing, anti-microbial glaze, nanotechnology, and water jet technology. Digital printing technology not only helps in enhancing the color of ti ...
