Pressure Transmitter Perspectives

With improved economic conditions worldwide, and many delayed projects coming back online, growth and innovation in the pressure transmitter market can be expected to continue.

RTDs vs. Thermocouples

Temperature is the most measured parameter across many industries. RTDs and thermocouples are the most common sensor types used in industrial processes. But which is the best choice for your process?

Multipoint Thermal vs. DP Flowmeters for Combustion Air Flow Applications

Multipoint thermal mass flowmeters are a low-cost, low-maintenance, and highly accurate alternative to DP devices and flow restrictors.

PUMP GUY: Rocket Science
The instrumentation technician is a better friend to the pump reliability engineer than the vibration analyzer or the CMMS program. I’ve written these words before in more than one “Pump Guy” article, but rarely does the instrumentation tech know the influence he exercises.
3 Factors That Kill Sensor Accuracy & When You Need To Calibrate
We get asked all the time, “How often should I calibrate my level/pressure sensor?” When it comes to sensors, there is the simple answer, and the long answer that explains the nuts, bolts, washers, and threads of calibration.
Part V: Root Cause Revealed?

Could it be that the liquid ammonia was entering the unit with bubbles of gas that caused the flowmeter to incorrectly measure zero flow and, in turn, cause the reactor to scram? Cooling the liquid ammonia feed reinforces this hypothesis because it reduced the number of scrams.

Key Considerations for Dry Gas Seal Performance

For turbo-compressor applications, the seal panel, the seal piping arrangements, and the seal vent system details are critical for reliability, performance, safety, and operation of dry gas seals.

QUIZ CORNER: Flowmeter Straight-Pipe Requirements?

A flowmeter needs to be installed within a 10 diameter straight run. How much of the straight run should be located upstream/downstream of the flowmeter?
