Capacitance-type magnetic flowmeters have traditionally offered the advantage of having non-wetted electrodes and the ability to measure low conductivity fluids. However, they suffered from a sensitivity to flow noise and zero instability. Innovative technology overcomes these limitations and drives magnetic flowmeters into new areas of application, while reducing installed costs.
Automation designers face many challenges and tradeoffs in the development of a successful network solution. This white paper discusses the necessary choices in selecting a network technology appropriate for various specific applications.
Specifying a hygienic bulk solids feeder is not a simple task. The wide variety of requirements needed
for specific applications are similar in scope to explosion proof environmental requirement variations.
Advanced diagnostics, some of which are available today, will go beyond alarming transmitter
failures to actually predict impending failures in the complete measurement system. This will
significantly reduce unscheduled shutdowns, and also reduce the risk of onscale failure.
This eight-page PDF whitepaper discusses the importance of transmitter selection for centrifugal compressors. Appropriate selection is especially important in anti-surge and throughput control applications.
OSHAs Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is based on a simple conceptthat employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working.
Processors have long recognized the importance of tank and reactor cleaning to product quality. This NLB white paper discusses cleaning methods and the significant implications your choice can have on productivity, safety and profitability.
With a number of vendors producing Programmable Automation Controllers that combine the functionality of a PC and reliability of a PLC, PACs today are increasingly being incorporated into control systems. This white paper explores the origins of the PAC, how PACs differ from PLCs and PCs, and the future direction of industrial control with PACs.
This 26-page white paper from Monitor Technologies discusses the difficulties in measuring bulk solids and powders in bins, silos and hoppers. Download this document to learn which technologies are out there that can make this job easier.
