The SafePoint from Monitor Technologies LLC is a self-validating point level sensor for monitoring the presence and absence of powders, granular materials and other bulk solids. It is completely fail-safe and can be used in bins, silos and other vessels with process temperature conditions up to 399°C to shut off bin filling and protect against overfilling due to unknown sensor failures.
Crystal Engineering has introduced the XP2i-DP differential digital test gauge which is also capable of data logging. The unit is rugged, intrinsically safe, ATEX certified and has an accuracy of ±0.1% of reading between 20-100% and ±0.02% of full scale between 0-20%.
Hawk, a global provider of level, positioning and flow measurement technology, has announced a joint venture with MS Instrumentos in Brazil.
Modern process instruments incorporate a fair degree of intelligence used to optimise process variable accuracy and reliability, and can even undertake predictive maintenance. But they fail miserably in two critical aspects even when compared with technologies we use every day — self-adjustment and self-healing.
With conventional pipeline leak detection methods there is a gap between what you believe is occurring along your pipeline and what is actually happening. This information gap can result in a delay in you discovering and locating leaks.
Red Lion has announced its CUB5 Series Analog Panel Meters that, according to the company, increase user versatility in a footprint that is 30% smaller than conventional 48 x 96 mm meters and nearly half the cost.
The absolute rotary encoder is able to provide three different kinds of output data: the position value, a velocity value and a time stamp. These can be use in arbitrary combinations for TCP transmitting.
Dwyer Instruments has released the series PTGA differential pressure piston-type gauge. It can be used to measure the pressure drop across filters, strainers, pump performance testing and heat exchanger pressure drop monitoring.
