GE Sensing has introduced its Ruska Model 2482 differential piston gauge in response to market demand for an accurate and easy-to-use differential pressure standard for use at high static line pressures. Featuring a triple-piston assembly, this primary standard has been designed to calibrate virtually any differential pressure sensing device from 0 to 850 in H2O (2100 mbar) at line pressures up to 2900 psi (200 bar).
The accurate measurement and control of viscosity is absolutely critical in many processes as it determines the product's characteristics and quality and can optimise input material costs
Endress+Hauser have launched an inline analyser for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. The new STIP-scan device overcomes the costly sampling and maintenance procedures required by historical 'cabinet analysers' since it operates directly in the process.
The Rosemount 8732E transmitter from Emerson Process Management has multiple diagnostics available. Best-in-class performance coupled with advanced diagnostics provides unparalleled process management capabilities. With an optional backlit two-line by 16-character local operator interface, the transmitter can be configured by optical switches to simplify adjustments in hazardous environments without removing the cover.
CrispTech has announced a range of paperless chart recorders, the VR series. Available in two models, the VR6 offers up to six analog inputs and the VR18 handles up to 18. The VR series offers extremely high VGA screen resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The colour LCD screen is also larger and more readable, giving a 6.4" display.
The testo 925 is a single channel measuring instrument with fast thermo-element probes (Type K) for daily measurement of temperature. The waterproof protective cover, 'TopSafe', protects the instrument from dirt and knocks. The display can be illuminated for measurements in surroundings with bad light conditions. The broad range of measurement from -50 to +1000°C, and the possibility of attaching an extensive range of fast air probes, immersion probes and surface probes make the testo 925 a universally applicable thermometer.
Pulsar's SludgeFinder sludge level monitor uses a self-cleaning acoustic sensor that sits under the liquid surface of a clarifier or sludge tank. An acoustic signal is bounced off the bottom of the tank and modulations in the returning signal are interpreted to provide a profile of the sludge in the tank.
Endress+Hauser has released a high-temperature Soliphant M level limit switch for bulk solids to deliver reliable operation in sustained process conditions at temperatures up to 280°C, and for short periods, up to 300°C. This represents a significant advance on competitor products, which routinely fail at 250°C.
The Series RHL Humidity or Humidity/Temperature Transmitter from Dwyer Instruments provides a stable, repeatable and accurate means of measuring humidity only or humidity and temperature in the harshest of environments. The polymer capacitance sensor is not affected by condensation, fog, high humidity or contaminants, and the state-of-the-art sensor is designed for years of calibration-free service.
The Mercoid Division of Dwyer Instruments is offering a new and innovative capacitive level transmitter, the CRF2. Sensing technology in the CRF2, using impulse RF admittance measurement, provides good level measurement and stability.
The WIKA BEN-11 pressure transmitter offers ranges between 0.1 and 1000 bar at an accuracy better than 0.1%. This is achieved with digital signal processing leading to linearity of <0.1% of span and repeatability of <0.03% of span with no additional error due to temperature influences between 0°C and 50°C.
Phoenix Instruments were the winners of the best product award, presented by Westwick-Farrow Publishing at the Manufacturing Technology InFocus Exhibition held in Sydney this week.
