Cyclones With Receiver Backup

December 10, 2007 5:23 am | Product Releases | Comments

These cyclones separate out hot, cold, moist, and large particles before they can plug or damage filter receivers.

Tangential Spray Fluid Bed System

December 10, 2007 4:25 am | Product Releases | Comments

The BFS fluid bed system employs a tangential design and new filter system to dry, coat, and granulate a wide variety of materials.

Filter Bag for High-Efficiency Liquid Filtration

December 10, 2007 4:25 am | Product Releases | Comments

Series 100 Filter Bags make high-efficiency filtration viable where only standard filter bags are currently being used due to cost constraints.


Solid-Liquid Separation and Processing Solutions

December 10, 2007 4:25 am | Product Releases | Comments

The C Series automatic pressure filter for 4A detergent-grade zeolite typically produces a filter cake containing only 17 to 23 percent residual moisture, thereby reducing considerably downstream drying costs when compared to traditional vacuum filtration methods.

Fabric Filter Leak Detection Systems

December 10, 2007 4:25 am | Product Releases | Comments

Fabric filter leak detection systems, which comply with MACT and other EPA compliance regulations, include stack monitors with automatic self checks to eliminate the manual labor associated with EPA quality assurance requirements, multi-channel systems with leak locating technology for large multi-compartment baghouses, and low-cost loop-powered transmitters.

Thick Film Quartz Heater Modules

December 7, 2007 10:08 am | Product Releases | Comments

These thick film quartz heater modules, which are for deionized water and aggressive chemicals in semiconductor wet chemistry applications, feature an optical trip that protects the heater from excessive boiling, non-contact dry fire, and insufficient fluid flowing through the heater.

Rotary Air Compressor

December 7, 2007 10:08 am | Product Releases | Comments

The EndurAir rotary screw air compressor package provides clean, cool, compressed air and includes a three-stage oil separation system that minimizes oil carryover.

Grease Dispensers

December 7, 2007 10:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

Streamliner grease dispensers are an alternative to manual lubrication, delivering precise amounts of grease to critical machine parts, providing variable feed rates lasting from 1/2 to 24 months and feeding up to eight lubrication points at distances of up to 30 feet.


Brushless Motor Drive for Constant Velocity Applications

December 7, 2007 10:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

The TA2230 drive is designed to run a brushless motor at a constant velocity using the motor's Hall sensors for velocity feedback.


Infrared Thermometer With Circle/Dot Laser Sighting

December 7, 2007 10:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

The OSXL450 non-contact thermometer features a laser sighting system that defines the target for point-and-shoot measurement of temperatures from -20 to +320°C (-4 to +608°F).

Coal-Bed Methane Gas Flowmeter

December 7, 2007 10:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

The Wafer-Cone flowmeter is now approved by the Bureau of Land Management for use in coal-bed methane gas applications and conforms to API 22.2 for differential pressure flowmeters.

Secure Industrial Ethernet Switch

December 7, 2007 10:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

The SecureSwitch I-Series provides business-oriented, policy-based visibility and control of users, sensors, and applications without manual configuration of access control lists on each device for individual ports and VLANs in a ruggedized industrial platform.


Neural Network Flame Detection Technology for Reliable Monitoring

December 7, 2007 6:43 am | Articles | Comments

Accurate flame monitoring is a safety, process, and risk management challenge for chemical plant engineers. Chemical plant operators need reliable flame detection for flash fire conditions that spread rapidly and cause great harm. They must at the same time minimize the potential for false alarms that initiate fire suppression systems unnecessarily, cause damage to equipment, and impede productivity.

Operator Interface Systems for Plants: The Ins and Outs and Ups and Downs

December 7, 2007 5:42 am | Articles | Comments

Chemical plant operators face specific challenges when selecting an operator interface system (OIS). Like most organizations that process sensitive materials, they need stainless steel systems for their aseptic and cleanability properties; systems that are designed and engineered to withstand years of rigorous use; access to a wide range of customizable options so that the system meets their specific needs; and a compact, ergonomic design that allows the system to be deployed exactly where needed.

Pressure Regulators: How to Pick the Best One for High-Purity Use

December 7, 2007 5:28 am | Articles | Comments

Pressure regulators are highly technical and specialized fluid handling components. When selecting a regulator, make sure to define application needs with consideration not only to pressure requirements but also to flow rate, gas/liquid composition, and temperature. Proper selection can avoid undesirable conditions such as droop and creep while poor selection can lead to failures such as improper pressure control and contamination of gas streams.
