After investing millions of dollars in legacy serial communications systems and in many cases, millions more in older SCADA RTUs (remote terminal units) and EFMs (electric flow meters) many oil and gas producers are finding themselves in a pickle.
The engineered plastic cooling tower is practically impervious to the environment, harsh water treatment, and process fluctuations that eat metal clad towers alive.
Distillation, fermentation, or liquid blending operations in large tanks frequently call for real-time monitoring, measuring, logging, or controlling of the density of the liquid during the operation.
Here's why Y-pattern valves might offer a better option By Paul Ainsworth In Figure A, arrows indicate a basically unimpeded fluid flow with little pressure drop through the actuated ball valve.
Millipore's Bioprocess Division uses the right technology in a team environment 'No matter how big
The Milli-Q Advantage system meets the ultrapure water needs of most users and their specific applications. The main benefit is the convenience of a single system.
Netzsch Fine Particle Technology LLC unveiled a new way to create signature confections during the recent Process Expo in Chicago.
At ISA: These sanitary pressure gauges were presented to meet the stringent performance and material demands within dairy, food, chemical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical environments.
At ISA: A product of note was the Model AF26, a turbidity-independent, dual-channel absorption
At ISA: Attendees had the opportunity to see the Marsh Multi-Mag flowmeter, which was engineered to provide high accuracy in the most difficult flow conditions. It measures liquid volumetric flow rates in pipes sized from 4 to 120 in. (101.
At WEFTEC: Attendees were able to view the Innova-Flo Volumetric Vortex product line with its redesigned electronics package including HART Communications protocol.
At WEFTEC: Flottweg, a global supplier based in Germany of decanter centrifuges, exhibited its new high-solids decanter centrifuges for dewatering and thickening applications.
At WEFTEC: An electromagnetic water meter was unveiled as setting new standards with its high sampling rate and long battery life. Called the WaterFlux, this GSM-capable device remotely transmits flow rate readings using the Internet or cellular telephone.
At WEFTEC: The ST50 flowmeter was presented to wastewater treatment plant engineers looking for a more convenient, faster, and lower cost way to communicate with aeration and compressed air flowmeters. The new meter is wireless with an IR link for PDA communication.
