The Effects of Chlorinated Water on Polyethylene Pipes
Chlorine chemistry is complex. Under certain common conditions, chlorinated compounds can react with polyethylene pipes causing premature failures (bursts/leaks). It is important to understand this degradation mechanism in order to prevent future premature pipe failure. Recently, a specific additive system, when incorporated into polyethylene pipe resin was demonstrated to significantly improve the pipe’s resistance to degradation caused by chlorine exposure.
How to Avoid and Respond to FDA Criticisms—Form 483 Letters—for Temperature, Humidity and other Controlled Environments
The following article shows three excerpts from some of the more common "observations" noted in Form 483 Letters during 2008-2009. After the excerpts, we’ll outline some best practices of a 483 response, providing you with a 10-point checklist that should make that 15-day time limit more manageable, and some links for further research. Finally, we’ll look at ways to simplify and automate monitoring, alarming and reporting on FDA regulated environments.
How to Optimize Performance and Minimize Costs in Refrigerator and Freezer Liners
Styrenic resins such as High Impact PolyStyrene (HIPS) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) copolymer are used to manufacture liners. Refrigerator manufacturers are continuously optimizing their liner manufacturing operation to improve the overall refrigerator quality but also to reduce costs. Styron/Dow Chemical Company.pdf
