• Pump Condition-Monitoring Device

    The IN-1000 condition-monitoring device, for pumps in operationally critical and environmentally sensitive chemical engineering applications, accommodates one master and as many as 10 satellite modules/network. Built-in features include a two-level warning and alarm system, logging of sensor data, and remote monitoring with a smartphone app. It is available with ATEX certification for use in EX […]

  • Enhanced Ground Tester

    The DET2/3 earth/ground resistance tester includes an optional test lead reel that is said to dramatically reduce time and frustration for the operator. Designed to test communications and ground systems, the tester has a graphic display for better data analysis, excellent error detection capabilities, and a range of test frequencies to ensure noise protection. With […]

  • Air-Cooled Compressors

    The Ultima U75-160 series compressors are air cooled, oil free, and can be used for air and water cooling. Using heat recovery for process water heating, the unit reportedly allows collection and recovery for as much as 98% of generated heat. Gardner DenverQuincy, ILgardnerdenver.com

  • Improve Through Culture Change

    When I visit and/or assess plants, the largest roadblock to improvement that I encounter continues to be a need to improve culture. When enterprises experience success in this area, it usually comes from one of two paths: • communicating a clear, understandable vision that is believable and carries easily identified benefits • dissatisfaction that people […]

  • Find Competitive Advantage With Asset Management

    By Drew D. Troyer, CRE, CMRP, Contributing Editor Most people think of reliable asset management as maintenance. This is natural. How many, though, also think of it as an opportunity to create a competitive advantage? Let’s explore.  Some years back, researchers Robert H. Hayes and Steven C. Wheelwright created a model showing how operational excellence […]

  • Asset Management: Evolution to Revolution

    Q: Asset management is changing rapidly. Where is it all headed? A: Maintenance and reliability concepts have been evolving for a long time with increasing complexity and capabilities. This is further complicated by global competition, the high number of trades/technicians leaving the workforce, changing business dynamics, and the ongoing need to improve culture.

  • Point-Level Switch

    The Nivector FTI26 point-level switch detects all types of powdered and fine-grained solids such as plastic granules, detergent, grain, sugar, spices, and other dry materials. The switch can be installed at the top of a tank to indicate high level, or at the bottom of a tank to indicate low level. The capacitance device fulfills […]

  • Manifold Line

    The Rosemount R305 integral manifolds and R306 in-line manifolds have a Pressure-Lock valve design said to simplify high-pressure operation, increase safety, and enhance reliability. The two-piece stem does not rotate in the seat, providing solid closure with minimal wear. An adjustable packing nut simplifies valve maintenance. Back seating prevents blowouts for increased user safety. EmersonSt. […]

  • Compact Safety Laser Scanners

    SX series safety laser scanner protects personnel and equipment within user-defined warning and safety zones. It continuously scans a 275-deg. area around the device to detect objects as they enter each zone. The optical design and advanced filtering capabilities are said to enable best-in-class immunity to dust, dirt, and light interference, minimizing downtime associated with […]

  • Pump for Hygienic Applications

    A twin-screw pump for handling sensitive, abrasive, and high- or low-viscosity fluids for hygienic applications is reportedly quiet and virtually pulse free. The pump handles product transfer and Cleaning-in-Place (CIP). Its low pulsation characteristics and solids-handling capabilities are said to reduce the risk of product damage.
