Emerson: AVENTICS TM5 TaskMaster Aluminum Cylinder

Emerson Aventics Task Master CylinderMachine builders and their end-user manufacturers can increase machine speeds and reliability with the new AVENTICS TM5 TaskMaster aluminum cylinder from Emerson. The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)-compatible pneumatic cylinder reduces cost, energy consumption, equipment wear and downtime.

With its rugged aluminum body construction and a steel piston rod, the TM5 TaskMaster features Emerson’s state-of-the-art pneumatic cushioning technology that allows an ideal cushion adjustment to slow down the piston to a stop by the time it reaches the endcap. Ideal cushioning reduces the time it takes the cylinder to complete a stroke, allowing an improvement in efficiency that significantly boosts machine speed and lowers endcap hammer. Ideal cushioning also reduces cycle time and enables the TM5 cylinders to carry higher loads without sacrificing cylinder performance.

The cylinder incurs less stress and there is no end-of-stroke bounce or end-cap slamming, which is a main source of cylinder wear, slowness and noise. Ideal cushioning thus lengthens cylinder operating life and reduces downtime related to cylinder failure. Additionally, it reduces machine noise and vibration while reducing energy consumption.

Emerson: Virtual Valve Repair Service

Emerson Remote AssistanceEmerson announced its new Remote Assistance service capability to help plant operators immediately respond to industrial valve issues by using augmented reality (AR) technology. The AR technology uses a robust, secure channel certified as ISO 27001-compliant. Valve repairs are advised and guided by Emerson experts as part of the company’s expanding Connected Services portfolio in its Plantweb™ digital ecosystem.

Using a mobile device, plant personnel can securely share their field of view through the AR software as Emerson valve experts help troubleshoot and solve valve problems. Step-by-step instructions are overlaid in the field-user’s application to support installation, calibration or repair actions.

Real-time video communication enables users to resolve issues faster and minimize instruction errors that often occur with audio-only support while eliminating travel time and the cost of getting technicians to the work site. In addition, operators can expand their in-house knowledge base and staff skillsets through on-the-job troubleshooting guidance and recommendations to remediate issues, up to and including oversight of the final repair.

ITT Engineered Valves: BioviZion

ITT Engineered Valves BioviZion ManualActuatedThe BioviZion packs all of the industry leading breakthrough technology of the EnviZion valve platform into a small package developed specifically to address the critical reliability needs of sampling and low flow bioprocess applications.

Traditionally, small 4-bolt fractional size diaphragm valves utilized for sampling applications have been challenged to achieve the performance and reliability of traditional diaphragm valves simply because of dimensional limitations. Four small screws prone to galling just can’t provide the force required to achieve consistent and reliable seat and shell sealing.

Enter the BioviZion with high strength stainless steel studs which eliminate small fasteners prone to galling, snapping, and being lost. The patented diaphragm stud makes diaphragm installation a quick and reliable process. The efficient mechanical thermal compensation system applies sealing force constantly only where it is needed. Best of all no torqueing or re-torquing is required. All of these features add up to a more reliable and less costly valve to operate and maintain.
