There are two main types of flow measurement, instantaneous rate and totalized value, each providing critical process information depending on the specific needs. Often times, the signal from an instantaneous flow rate measurement can be coded for totalization where necessary, but there also exist instruments solely for totalization. Depending on the media for which the flow rate is being measured, different types and styles of flow transmitters can be more effective or accurate, and careful consideration should be taken when selecting a flow transmitter. From continual measurement to high and low alarms, contact us to learn more about the different types of flow measurement and instruments and to see how we may be able to help expand the window into your process.
Gas detection instruments serve a variety of purposes in a broad region of industries. From detecting fatal or explosive amounts in non-isolated environments, to controlling explosive limits within sealed process equipment, gas detection instrumentation is used wherever the potential lies for vaporized contaminants to be present. Contact us to discuss the importance of gas detection in your facility and the most efficient way to accomplish the most effective monitoring or controlling strategy.
Level transmitters can come in many shapes, sizes, and configurations. For example, a pressure transmitter, in the right location with the right calibration, can serve as a highly accurate level transmitter. Determining what type of level transmitter would be best fit for your application is a function of different variables that can all be interrelated. Some additional examples of devices that can provide a signal capable of depicting level are: bubbler, differential pressure, guided wave radar, and others. From continual measurement to high and low alarms, contact us to learn more about the different types of level measurement and instruments and to see how we may be able to help expand the window into your process.
pH/conductivity meters are primarily used to measure various aspects of water chemistry. These types of instruments are very commonly used in wastewater treatment applications, but can be vital for any process where pH, or any other process variable that can be measured utilizing electrical conductivity of the solution. Contact us for more information on how a pH/conductivity meter could serve your process, or if you are interested to see how it would help expand the window into your process from continual measurement to high and low alarms.
Position indicators are used for a myriad of different applications in the process industry. From valve position to final product loading, position indication can provide key insight to your process. Contact us for more information on the potential benefits that the addition of position indicators can expand the window into your process.
While a key process variable in certain applications, pressure indication can also be the last line of defense from a safety standpoint prior to the relieving of a pressure safety valve. Preventing a relief event can also prevent lost time due to process shut down, lost material, incident investigations, or anything other company specific relief event follow up tasks. From continual measurement to high and low alarms, contact us to learn more about the different types of pressure indicators and to see how we may be able to help expand the window into your process.
At times, obtaining the desired analytic from your process can involve a combination of process instruments or even specialty process instrumentation designed specifically for the desired purpose. Contact us to discuss all the different options that are available to you for your custom process measurements.
Temperature has been a key process variable, and arguably one of the most common along with pressure and level, in almost every known industry, including the thermostat in your own home. Knowing what type of temperature measurement/device is most effective for your application can squeeze unseen dollars from your process with regards to efficiency, amongst other benefits. From continual measurement to high and low alarms, contact us to learn more about the different types of temperature indicators and to see how we may be able to help expand the window into your process.
While vibration monitors are more often than not utilized on rotating equipment (pumps, fans, turbines, motors, compressors, gearboxes, etc.) in a safety shutdown type configuration for loss prevention, they also provide critical functionality in preventative maintenance, giving insight into equipment operations. For example, vibration instrumentation can provide the ability to understand and filter out natural vibration frequencies, allowing the ability to pinpoint irregular and potentially devastating abnormalities. Contact us to discuss how vibration monitoring could provide a much needed window into your process.
Weight indication is used throughout industry from the front end of the process for raw materials measurement to weighing the final product prior to shipment to the customer, along with many potential weight sensitive steps in between. All the way to shipment weight at the end user purchase level, weight indication plays a vital role from cradle to grave in any production industry. At times, custom solutions are necessary to capture the appropriate weight measurement at the right point in the process. Often times, accurate weight measurement can serve to increase efficiency and profit margins. Contact us today to discuss how weight measurement could provide a clearer window into your process
