Hydraulic vs. electric actuators technology update: When less than 2000 lb of force is required, electric actuator systems provide a better performing, more cost-efficient, more environmental, less risky solution with improved...
The ISA Inside course on Sept. 10-11 at IMTS 2014 is a great example of that kind of education will provide a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect critical control systems.
Think Again: Micromachining techniques are shrinking sensors, making devices less expensive with more capabilities. Microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS) will evolve into nanoelectrical mechanical systems (NEMS).
A good CMMS system can deliver the information users need to better fine-tune their PM schedules. If a less-rigorous PM schedule gets the maintenance team slapped with a corrective work order, it’s time to adjust.
