Pentair Valves & Controls: Anderson Greenwood 4000 Series

Pentair Anderson Greenwood 4000 SeriesPentair Valves & Controls introduces the new Anderson Greenwood 4000 Series of pressure and vacuum relief valves, compliant with the latest API 2000 standard. Developed alongside the industry standard, these are the first high capacity full lift valves verified to meet the requirements of the seventh edition of API 2000, which covers normal and emergency vapor venting requirements for bulk liquid storage tanks.

The 4000 Series pressure and vacuum relief valves are engineered to provide increased flow capacities and will fully open at 10 percent overpressure, helping protect tanks from physical damage caused by internal pressure fluctuations. As a result, the valves can be set more closely to a storage tank’s maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) or maximum allowable working vacuum (MAWV), enabling customers to fill and empty tanks more quickly, and operate them at higher pressures

Emerson: Wirelessly-Monitored Storage Tank Safety Valves

Emerson Process Management Enardo 850 950 seriesEmerson Process Management has introduced the Enardo 850/950 series of wirelessly-monitored pressure vacuum relief valves (PVRVs) that provide safety and emissions control by managing the pressure in storage tanks in the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

The pressure in storage tanks fluctuates due to changes in temperature, liquid level, or both. A PVRV opens and closes in response to these pressure fluctuations to ensure that safe pressure levels are maintained. However, because these PVRVs are located on the top of storage tanks, they are difficult to monitor. Site managers are increasingly looking for ways to increase safety and efficiencies. Emerson’s new wireless solution enables immediate response to prevent problems related to safety, emissions, and the quality of a tank’s content.

Flowserve: Gestra BK37-5 Steam Trap

Flowserve GestraFlowserve Corporation has released the Flowserve Gestra BK37-5 thermostatic bimetallic steam trap, which offers end users significantly lower total cost of ownership and energy-saving benefits when compared to thermodynamic (TD) and inverted bucket steam trap technologies.

End users can achieve significant annual energy savings per unit with the BK37-5, which does not consume live steam during operation and can save up to 0.9 kg (2 lb) per hour of steam consumption when compared with TD and inverted bucket steam traps.

The BK37-5 is designed specifically for all pressures from 0.7 to 45 bar (10 to 650 psi) and is suitable for both saturated and superheated steam. Its normally open function allows for automatic air-venting and high-ratio startup, and the trap's operation is unaffected by pipeline orientation, allowing it to be installed in any position.

The BK37-5 also features the field-proven BK46 regulator, which is not affected by water hammer or ambient conditions and has demonstrated reliability, durability and energy efficiency in harsh environments.

Siemens Industry: SITRANS LH100 Submersible Level Transducer

Siemens SITRANS LH100Siemens introduces the SITRANS LH100 submersible level transducer for use in hydrostatic level applications. The pressure transmitter measures the liquid levels in tanks, containers, channels and dams, mostly used within drinking and wastewater applications.

The SITRANS LH100 offers 0.3% accuracy and is available for various measuring ranges and comes with an intrinsic safety option. A junction box and cable hanger are available as accessories for simple installation.

Slim and robust, 0.92” diameter, a ceramic sensor makes mounting possible in pipes with one-inch inside diameter, and immune to harsh environmental conditions. A humidity filter integrated into the connecting cable offers easy and safe installation. The housing is made of stainless steel 316L.

Solon Manufacturing Company: Fusion Project Custom Instrumentation

Solon Manufacturing Company’s custom differential vacuum switch is playing an integral part in the demonstration of nuclear fusion. Recently, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have replicated the process of how the sun creates energy. This possibility of man-controlled nuclear fusion could change the future of how we power the world.

In 2007, Solon began working with engineers at Lawrence Livermore National Ignition Facility (or NIF), to define, design, prototype and validate the vacuum switches used to confirm that the proper atmosphere was in place inside the test chamber. “The NIF requirements were very particular and they needed a partner that was willing to work through all of the details of their project. The material specifications were revised several times during the project to ensure that the switch sensing elements could not influence their process,” said Solon’s President, Tim Dunn.

The Solon switches, 100 in all, were mounted onto panels that are located on the exterior of the fusion test chamber. “Solon developed internal test equipment and procedures specific to this project to ensure that all of the devices performed well when they were received at Lawrence Livermore,” explains Dunn. A recent follow up with NIF confirms the switches are still operating at optimal performance, protecting the atmosphere of the test chamber.

“Many people at Solon had a direct impact on our project with LLNL and NIF. Very often our products are buried inside large facilities and don’t see the light of day, but their function is crucial to many industrial processes and R&D projects,” said Dunn.
