Endress+Hauser's Proline Promag 800 flow meter is more than just clever.

Process monitoring is becoming more demanding and the need for maximum product quality is steadily increasing. Endress+Hauser recently introduced the innovative new generation Proline flow meters Promag 800. Endress+Hauser has designed this product based on a uniform device concept, meaning time and cost savings as well as maximum safety over the entire plant life cycle. With the demand on natural resources increasing steadily the accurate measurement and billing of spring water and drinking water consumption is becoming increasingly important. Endress+Hauser has developed the new Promag 800 with battery power precisely for such applications. This electromagnetic flowmeter allows versatile and autonomous use even at locations without power line or grids. The Promag 800 is compact and houses everything from electronics, batteries, a data logger and a GSM/GPRS modem that can be used to send measured values worldwide by e-mail. This guarantees reliable monitoring of water flows and longterm economical measuring operations. Some of the USP of this device are wireless data transfer and wireless data querying in case of troubleshooting. A reliable battery backup ensures guaranteed measurements at regular intervals including storage in device data card. Industry optimized sensors for continuous reliable operation. With no moving parts or replacement of expensive filters the Promag 800 is maintenance free, cost efficient and truly intelligent. DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP. WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR PRODUCT?

Rockwell Automations ARC furnace control technology earns GBP500,000 each year for Tata Steel.

Inspec Solutions was asked by Tata Steel (formerly Corus Steel)based in Sheffield, Yorkshire, UK to upgrade the control infrastructure on three of its electric ladle arc furnaces. One of the options open to Inspec was to use proprietary off-the-shelf furnace-control systems developed by major automation firms in the marketplace. The 300-ton ladle arc furnaces are filled with steel and trimming materials and are heated using three large (600 x 3,000mm) carbon electrodes that are lowered to the steel furnace. It is the control of the electrode movement that has to be precise to maintain the correct arc length and hence the amount of heat going into the ladle. Rockwell Automations ControlLogix-based electrode regulator solutions were just right and offered many other advantages, including giving Tata Steel engineers the ability to service the control units in house while offering all the benefits of a seamless interface to the overall furnace RSView SCADA systems. One of the major challenges at hand were that each of these 3 furnaces had an analogue, digital and windows NT based regulator. Rockwell Process Automation System (Logix and FactoryTalk® products) were an ideal solution for the engineers at Tata Steel. Inspec Solutions quoted "We created the control infrastructure, feeding details to the regulators using I/O and then our Swedish partners provided the control philosophy for each of the furnaces. The arc furnace control philosophy is based on complex algorithmic principles to model the system, replicated in RSLogix™ 5000." Rockwell Automation based solutions not only helped Tata Steel steadily upgrade its whole automation scheme but also brought in huge revenue savings in excess of GBP500K/year.DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP.

Honeywell launches New IP Series pressure sensors for industrial applications

Honeywell is pleased to announce the expansion of their pressure portfolio with the introduction of the new IP Series industrial pressure sensors. Designed specifically for industrial monitoring applications and preconfigured with the most popular features and options in a highly cost-effective package. Built on Honeywell's proven Sensotec pressure sensor platform, the Honeywell IP Series offers the best in accuracy. The Model IPG1 with 0.15% BFSL (Best Fit Straight Line) accuracy and the Model IPG2 with 0.25% BFSL accuracy.Unlike other pressure sensors on the market, Honeywell IP series pressure sensors includes temperature in its Total Error Band (TEB) configuration, offering increased measurement confidence and eliminating the need for supplementary calculations by the user. Additionally, the IP Series' 2.0% TEB includes non-linearity, repeatability, and hysteresis.The Model IPG1 and IPG2 pressure sensors are constructed of rugged, all-welded, high quality 300 series stainless steel to withstand harsh, repetitive industrial applications and environments, which may include high pressure or temperature spike. The wetted materials are made from Hastelloy and 300 series stainless steel with no internal o-rings, thus making the IP series pressure sensors resistant to a wide variety of harsh media. Finally the IP series sensors find a wide application in a diverse industry from general process control, factory automation, industrial equipment, Pump and Compressor control, Oil and Gas & Energy.

Siemens Sitrans LUT400 raises the benchmark in Ultrasonic level measurement accuracy.

The recent launch of Sitrans LUT400 Ultrasonic controller by Siemens has set new standards for Ultrasonic level measurement accuracy. The Sitrans LUT400 leads the way with accuracy levels of one millimeter(0.04inches)only to be achieved by Siemens. The new controller features a patented digital receiver, which provides improved echo signal strength, along with digital band-pass filtering for better noise elimination. The SITRANS LUT400 is user friendly, with a panel of four buttons and menu based options it can be programmed in less than 60 seconds. The SITRANS LUT400 is available in three models viz; level, volume, pump, and flow applications and for high-accuracy open channel monitoring, providing a full suite of measurement and control options.The compact design from SITRANS LUT400 controller excels at continuous level monitoring and control in liquids, solids, or slurry applications in a wide range of industries. The controller is a flexible solution for wide variety of applications, including water and wastewater monitoring, pumping, inventory management, crusher control, truck load-outs and anything in between. Finally the SITRANS LUT400 controllers are compatible with the full line of Siemens Echomax transducers, with an operating range of 0.3 to 60 meters (1 to 200 feet), depending on transducer.
