Coriolis and Ultrasonic Flowmeters on the Rise

Coriolis and Ultrasonic Flowmeters on the Rise The future of flowmeters — especially coriolis and ultrasonic — is very rosy, predicts this report from Flow Control. The markets for them significantly expanded in 2011 and it looks like they will continue their rise due to both push and pull factors. On the push side, there are a growing number of worldwide conferences where technical ideas are shared, and manufacturers and users can meet to discuss applications. On the pull side, users have a growing appreciation for the special qualities of these meters. For ultrasonics: high accuracy and reliability, low maintenance, and relatively low cost. For coriolis: high accuracy, straight-tube, and growth in large line sizes. And for both, expanding built-in diagnostics.

Positive Reasons for Positive Displacement

Positive Reasons for Positive Displacement Pumps Question: Why use a positive displacement pump? Answer: It's ideal for high-viscosity fluids in a system with varying flow and pressure demands. It can also deliver a well-defined flow over a wide range of pressures. Chemical Processing describes the different types and their best applications in detail. One type — the progressing cavity pump — can even handle solids mixed in with the fluid.

Best Bolting Practices for Flanges

Best Bolting Practices for Flanges Bolting flanges properly is not an easy task. Pumps and Systems outlines a six-step approach to making a solid connection. Critical steps include proper alignment of the flange faces, and re-tightening the fasteners to compensate for load loss due to relaxation after initial installation.

The Special Needs of Industrial Ethernet

The Special Needs of Industrial Ethernet Ethernet can be a terrific means for automating a factory but if it's not done right, it can be a disaster. If you think you understand Ethernet just because you use it in your office or home — think again. This in-depth piece from Control Engineering gives much good advice and explains things like the difference between Category 5 and Category 6 cable, or the difference between a hub and a switch.

Upgrade Your Old PLC to a Modern PAC

Upgrade Your Old PLC to a Modern PAC This video from SoftPLC Corporation, demonstrates how to migrate your existing programmable logic controller (PLC) application to a programmable automation controller (PAC). Some advantages: virtually unlimited programming and data table memory, a large number of ports, open architecture, and embedded Web server. You email your application logic and documentation file and the company sends a preloaded controller to you — for a cost, of course.

Gentle, Three Minute Blending
Munson Machinery Company
Eliminating the Foundry Bottleneck
Carrier Vibrating Equipment, Inc.

Gentle, Three Minute Blending Rotary Batch Mixer gently blends batches of dry ingredients (and liquid additions) in parts down to one per million with complete uniformity in less than three minutes, evacuates the batch with no residual, and sanitizes rapidly with no tools. No internal bearings contacting material. Outperforms ribbon, paddle, and cone blenders.

Eliminating the Foundry Bottleneck Change product in a conventional shakeout and you may experience excessive sand carryover or, worse yet, casting damage. Carrier has solved this problem with its patented Delta-Phase® Shakeout. With its variable angle of attack, the shakeout easily adjusts to product change, virtually eliminating sand carryover and costly casting damage!

Dust Control That's Flexible

Dust Control That's Flexible Dust is a typical byproduct of food production. This article explains that when changing products, the dust control system can usually be modified rather than replaced to accommodate the new process. Basic guidelines and two case studies explain how.

A Smooth Transfer of Powder

A Smooth Transfer of Powder A pharmaceutical manufacturer needed to safely transfer a measured dose of powdered material from a granulator to a bin mounted on load cells. The transfer had to be sanitary and completely contained. An automated valve with retractable sleeve not only did the job, it was interlocked so the valve would not open unless the sleeve was engaged with the receiving bin.

No Bee Wings in Your Tea

No Bee Wings in Your Tea Effective filtering is a key step in honey production. Foreign bodies such as wax and bee wings must be removed to prevent blockage and maintain a steady flow rate. A producer's original filter required manual cleaning, which caused unacceptable losses of production time. The replacement product is self-cleaning and features easily changeable screens for different types of honey. (Turn to page 8 of digital magazine.)

What's New in Pharmaceutical Filters?

What's New in Pharmaceutical Filters? Pharma Manufacturing highlights some of the latest improvements in pharmaceutical filtering from six different manufacturers. A sampling includes combination depth and membrane pre-filters, production scale depth filters, and single-use tangential flow (TFF) filters. The emphasis with all of these products is increased effectiveness and the ability to handle a wide range of flow rates.

Industry Standards . . .
Standard Applies to Pressurized Enclosures
Electrical and Instrumentation Loop Check

Standard Applies to Pressurized Enclosures Offering guidance to those who employ pressurization for electrical equipment in hazardous locations, this ISA Pressurized Enclosure standard protects users from failure of pressure regulating devices in the protective gas supply. In addition, ISA 12.04.04 provides performance and test recommendations so components mounted internally or protruding through the enclosure are unlikely to cause ignition of a surrounding flammable atmosphere.

For more information on IHS standards, visit us here.

Electrical and Instrumentation Loop Check This standard defines procedures and specifications for loop check, which comprises the activities between the completion of the loop construction (including installation and point-to-point checks) and the start-up of cold commissioning. This standard is applicable for the construction of new plants and for expansion/retrofits of electrical and instrument installations in existing plants.
