The collection and conveying of dusts and powders can create static electricity hazards, and since static buildup can occur in dust collection equipment that handles conductive, insulative dusts and powders, much attention has been directed to preventing potentially hazardous electrical discharges from conventional filter bags and support cages.
The last couple of years have seen the introduction of an entirely new generation of diaphragm metering pumps. These pumps incorporate digital robotic-like technology to improve accuracy and process control, saving money by lowering the amount of chemicals used and reducing the number of pump sizes required by large users of dosing pumps.
Solution providers from around the world will come together in Houston, TX, Oct. 2-4 for ISA EXPO, considered to be North America's largest automation and control exhibition.
The rugged ColdSNAP is a self-contained temperature recorder that monitors shipments by recording a critical low temperature of refrigerated temperature-sensitive products in storage or transit.
A highly sensitive viscosity sensor that includes a reactor connection has been designed for end-point polymerization in pressurized or vacuum vessels.
The Model DP86 wet-wet differential pressure sensor is a double-sided stainless steel isolated piezoresistive silicon device.
HLR 750 Series AC-operated LVDTs have been approved for operation in Class 1, Division 2 and Class 1, Zone 2 hazardous locations.
The Bimetal dual-mode remote thermometer provides on-site indication of process temperature conditions and simultaneously provides a mV or ohm signal proportional to temperature for input to a transmitter, remote terminal unit, controller, recorder, indicator, PLC, DCS, or SCADA system.
Model 4600 ExplosionProof pressure sensors can withstand the high vibration and temperature extremes typically found in hydrogen applications.
Harbin Electric Inc., a U.S. company with operations in Harbin, China, has developed a high-efficiency, energy-saving tower-type oil pump driven by permanent magnetic linear motors for the oil and gas industry.
Enhancements have been made to the Sandpiper S15 and S20 non-metallic pumps to improve corrosion resistance.
The Model 3700 API-610 10th edition process pump is now offered in eight additional sizes, extending its hydraulic coverage to fit more requirements.
These compact multi-stage venturi vacuum pumps need only 45 psi air pressure but provide the same holding capacity as conventional pumps requiring 80 to 100 psi.
Nylobrade flexible braid-reinforced PVC hose is stocked in 12 sizes. Three reinforcement options thin wall, standard, and high pressure allow users to select the best fit for their application.
