A Look Inside Tubing: Avoiding Leaks and the Hassles That Follow Them

May 2, 2007 11:24 am | Articles | Comments

Plant engineers and maintenance personnel are facing tougher demands in the construction, maintenance, and upgrade of processing systems. The performance expectations for these systems are much higher than they were just 10 years ago.

Weighing Woes? Compression Load Cells Can Be Good for Your Tanks

May 2, 2007 8:50 am | Articles | Comments

Why have so many plants switched from the higher accuracy load cell to level probes and site glasses to determine the contents of tanks? Let's explore the most common reasons and, in the process, examine the root causes of many vessel weighing dilemmas.


Save the Planet and Turn a Profit

May 2, 2007 8:38 am | Articles | Comments

Signs of global warming are all around us, from melting glaciers to stifling heat waves. The 10 hottest years on record have all occurred since 1990, and scientists say global warming is likely to disrupt water supplies, flood coastal areas, increase disease outbreaks, and cause fragile lands such as alpine meadows and coastal marshes to vanish.

Large Line Size Coriolis Flowmeter

May 2, 2007 8:28 am | Product Releases | Comments

With an advanced U-tube flow sensor design, the new Model CMU Coriolis mass flowmeter is said to deliver more than twice the industry standard flow rate to set a new benchmark when compared to other Coriolis devices in its class.
