Advanced pressure diagnostics provide valuable insight into your process

10 August, 2012

Advanced pressure diagnostic technology provides a means for early detection of abnormal situations in a process environment and enables the user to proactively respond to changes in the process, troubleshoot and prevent future shutdowns. Find out how it can help prevent abnormal situations in your plant.


How to minimise losses in converter-fed induction motors

06 October, 2011

This study presents a technique developed to minimise losses in totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) induction motors fed by frequency converters in applications with constant torque loads, especially at low speeds, in which the ventilation system is inefficient.


Lowering costs and improving safety at sewage pumping stations

08 August, 2011

Pumping raw sewage or any kind of wastewater can be expensive, with many hidden costs and safety issues. Download this white paper to find out how you can lower costs and improve safety at sewage pumping stations.


Energy Cost Reduction through Load Balancing and Load Shedding

15 May, 2011

Power factor is an important aspect that drives up energy costs so improving this, controlling the demand charge and reducing peak consumption during ON peak times will result in substantial savings. In addition, the PLM function helps to improve quality of the main power supply and ultimately reduces CO2 emissions.


Emergency standby pumping capability?

02 May, 2011

When the storm is raging in the middle of the night, the last thing you want to hear is the phone ringing off the hook to tell you that four of your pump stations are down and all hands are needed. Do you have emergency standby pumping capability?


Simplify your fieldbus installation

01 September, 2010

Download this white paper for guidelines to keep in mind when ordering your fieldbus system and when dealing with your installation subcontractor.


Safety instrumented systems: the "logic" of single loop logic solvers

01 September, 2010

Today, there are solutions for SIS strategies with hundreds of I/O and there are those for systems with just a handful of I/O – and everything in between. The “new generation” in safety-certified single loop logic solvers fits into this scenario nicely.


Solving application problems for wastewater pumping stations

01 September, 2010

Download this white paper if any of your objectives are to: cope with peak wet weather flows; cope with power outages during peak flows; lower costs over the life of the pump station installation; improve OH&S at pump stations; remove confined spaces issues.


Inverter-rated motors: what they are and how to identify them

23 June, 2010

This white paper reviews the significant effects an inverter has on an induction motor; it summarises the international guidelines for the inverter-driven motor applications, mainly those contained in the latest International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) technical specifications.


A self-cleaning wet-well

28 May, 2010

Is the cleaning of a wet-well just a costly and troublesome fact of life? Or is there truly an effective, cost-efficient alternative?


How to mitigate the potential damage and prevent an overflow of pump stations

11 February, 2010

This white paper covers the most common ways used to mitigate the potential damage and prevent an overflow, discusses the pitfalls of each, and offers a solution.


The true costs of IP video surveillance

18 May, 2009

This tech paper takes you through the true costs of IP Video surveillance, including Estimating initial acquisition cost, the operating requirements, labour for installation and maintenance, and exposure to risk or liability.


Minimisation of losses in converter-fed induction motors

18 May, 2009

This tech paper presents a technique developed to minimise losses in totally enclosed fancooled (TEFC) induction motors fed by frequency converters in applications with constant torque loads, especially at low speeds, in which the ventilation system is inefficient.


Medium voltage industrial variable speed drives

18 May, 2009

This tech paper presents different technologies and topologies of medium-voltage (MV) drives available on the market. The paper describes the advantages and disadvantages of each configuration and the impact in the quality of energy in the mains and motor sides when using them is also analysed.


Benefiting from industrial ethernet

22 April, 2009

Having conquered the factory floor from its office stronghold, ethernet is now migrating down the automation network hierarchy. This tech paper discusses the ways in which advances in industrial ethernet technology provide solutions for control engineers and other involved in industrial processing.
