Coriolis Meters

Coriolis flow meters directly measure mass flow, making these meters more resilient against variations in temperature, pressure, and fluid density. Coriolis meters serve a wide range of industrial applications, including measuring chemical reactions, by combining high accuracy, versatility, direct mass measurement, and minimal maintenance requirements.   By measuring mass flow, Coriolis meters eliminate the need to make assumptions when measuring typical mass based chemical reactions. Coriolis mass meters help cut out calculations and assumptions since mass is conserved in chemical reactions while volume is not.   Coriolis meters further mitigate the risk of error by combining mass flow with inline-density and temperature measurements taken directly from the meter in real time. This means that a single installation point yields multiple useful and accurate measurements.

Electric Valve Actuator Ensures Accurate Process Control

Emerson has introduced the Fisher easy-Drive 200R Electric Actuator for use on Fisher butterfly and ball valves. When paired with these valves, the new actuator performs accurately and reliably under the extreme conditions found in many heavy industries, particularly oil and gas installations in cold remote locations. These actuator/valve assemblies increase uptime, improve performance, and reduce the risk of emissions posed by gas-operated systems locations.   Many pneumatic valve actuators installed in remote locations are operated using natural gas, but this technology releases atmospheric emissions every time the valve is actuated.

Pipeline Integrity Remote Monitoring Solution

SignalFire Wireless Telemetry, a leading manufacturer of industrial wireless telemetry products, is partnering with Axess-Corrosion, a UK provider of corrosion monitoring sensors, in integrating its RANGER cellular transmitter in a new pipeline corrosion monitoring solution. Monitoring pipeline corrosion is important to determine the ongoing degradation of pipes and prevent leaks, process challenges, and failures. The new pipeline corrosion monitoring solution from Axess-Corrosion combines the RANGER IoT transmitter with a sacrificial sensing probe to provide data and alarms on pipeline corrosion levels. In operation, the probe, which is inserted into the pipe, is equipped with a depleting “sacrificial” membrane and can detect corrosion or erosion of the membrane as finite as 0.0001”. By measuring depletion rate, the probe provides feedback on the predicted rate of corrosion on the pipeline wall. It is critically important to oil producers to receive feedback about the performance of the expensive, corrosion-inhibiting chemicals and if the dosage rate is optimal. Utilizing the latest cellular LTE CAT M1 with MQTT/SparkPlugB technology for remote locations, the battery-powered RANGER cellular transmitter powers the corrosion sensors, then gathers and transmits data from the sacrificial probe to the cloud for remote monitoring control, and alarm from any web browser including mobile devices. By publishing over cellular networks using MQTT and TLS security, the RANGER Io.

The improved pin and insert designs make using these connectors even more effective and efficient. A simple change to the way the pin is captivated in the insert makes wiring, and re-wiring, if necessary, a quick and easy task. Gone is the old retention clip that could possibly be damaged when re-wiring or repairing. A simple extraction tool can now be used to quickly remove any contact. The pins and sockets for the M23 19-pole products accept a wire gauge range of 24-18 AWG. Mencom M23 19-pole field wireable connectors offer rugged and reliable connections with error-free field installation.  The universal design also provides a means for shielding the cable if needed. As a convenience, Mencom also offers a crimp tool (CCPZ-MIL) a locator tool (MCTP-V19) and the extraction tool (MCV19ES) to assist with assembly and disassembly, as well as MCV-001 to assist with the assembly of the female threaded connector.

Galvo Scanning Heads

Amada Weld Tech US announces a range of galvo scan heads for precision laser welding applications. Common usages for these scanning heads include point-to-point positioning for multi-point welding, shape welding for hermetic seams, and beam weaving to increase weld width. Point-to-point positioning is frequently employed where multiple welds are needed over a small area, for example, electronic connector leads. The jump speed is nearly instantaneous compared to either traditional motion stages or robotic motion and can decrease cycle times. Contour welding: galvo scanning heads are adept at steering the laser beam in an XY plane to create a seam weld of any programmed shape. This is commonly used for electronic package welding, where a specific motion is necessary to create a hermetic seal, and for lap welding configurations where additional weld contact is required.

AW-Lake Flow Meters

AW-Lake Flow Meters ensure ultraprecise metering of chemicals used to create foams utilized in commercial, industrial, and marine applications. When used in professional spray polyurethane foam (SPF) equipment, AW-Lake JVM Series Positive Displacement Gear Flow Meters offer a consistent and ultraprecise method for dispensing chemicals that create the foam for smaller commercial projects such as taxidermy, boat manufacturing, and sound insulation products. In operation, an SPF machine pumps chemicals from two multi-gallon drums through hoses to the nozzle of a spray gun to form the polyurethane foam. A pump within the spray foam equipment is not reliable enough to dispense accurate amounts of chemical. Unlike pumps, the AW-Lake JVM Series Positive Displacement Flow Meters are not prone to drift, overspin, or media slippage under pulsation that results in ultra-precise chemical batching for the SPF machine over time. To ensure longevity and chemical compatibility, the positive displacement flow meter features a ball bearing design that works well in non-lubricating media, such as the chemicals used in this application. City Fireboats Use AW-Lake Turbine Flow Meter to Measure Fire Retardant Foam In another application, city fireboats are using AW-Lake Turbine Flow Meters and Transmitters to measure fire-retardant foam for extinguishing fires. Fitted on foam lines, the AW-Lake TRG Turbine Meters provide feedback to the PLC on actual flow rate volumes. AW-Lake’s RT-30 Flow Trans.

This novel approach to simplification of design suits flush mounted doors and may be interchanged with the existing 1056 design with no need to modify drawings or production.   The screw-on hinge does not need the usual hinge pin by virtue of its novel design which incorporates the pin into the two separate leaves of the hinge in such a way that they can be inserted at the 270° position then become securely interlocked when the hinge is closed to 180°. This feature also enables simple door removal when required.   On the one hand, this results in significant cost advantages compared to conventional screw-on hinges with hinge pins.

MIB-300A and MIB-600A AC Inverter Welding Power Supplies

The MIB-300A and MIB-600A AC Inverter Welding Power Supplies offer increased control resulting in more exact heat input and better quality welds as compared to traditional AC weld controls.The AC inverter uses inverter technology with pulse width modulation (PWM) to produce and simulate an AC waveform. Unlike AC welders that use line frequency and depend on well-regulated facility power, the AC inverter can produce an AC frequency from 50 Hz to 500 Hz allowing more precise energy delivery in less time, is not affected by line voltage fluctuation, and provides a balanced three phase load.The MIB-300A and MIB-600A feature secondary constant current control, up to 20 pulses per weld and the ability to set upslope, downslope and weld interrupt. Up and downslope improve energy input into the welded material and interrupt stops the flow of current if displacement breaches a set level, preventing over welding.MIB-300A and MIB-600A may be used with the same transformers and weld heads as standard AC welders.

HAR Series Displacement Sensors for Turbines

Power plants have very precise control schemes for valve position for maximized operating efficiency. Because a typical power plant can contain hundreds of valves that control the flow of steam, gas and water in conjunction with different control systems, plant operators must always know their position. NewTek LVDT Position Sensors enable precise monitoring and control of valves so turbines operate efficiently with minimal wasted energy.   While some power plant applications only monitor if a valve is open or closed at start up and shut down, some operations need to know the exact position to ensure valves are opened or closed to the right degree. For example, certain power generation operations might require that governor and throttle valves be open by 25 or 40 percent.
