Emerson: Wireless Gas Sensors

Emerson Rosemount wireless gas sensorsEmerson has introduced two new Rosemount 628 Universal Gas Sensors to measure carbon monoxide and oxygen depletion in addition to the existing capability to monitor hydrogen sulfide. These additions to the series provide a broader range of hazardous situations that can be monitored using the Rosemount™ 928 Wireless Gas Monitor platform.

The Rosemount 928 Wireless Gas Monitor is a highly versatile platform for monitoring hazardous conditions in process plants, remote wellheads, pipelines, storage terminals and other process plants and facilities. It can be easily deployed using a WirelessHART® network in areas considered too impractical or expensive for the installation of conventional wired infrastructure. Once monitors are integrated into the wireless network, personnel can simply check the status of the remote monitoring system gas levels.

Emerson: TopWorx GO Switch 7LY Proximity Sensor

Emerson topworx 7l.sqEmerson has introduced the TopWorx GO Switch 7LY proximity sensor, the first such device to feature ultra-bright, easy-to-see light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for highly visible position indication in bright sunlight. The new barrel-style sensor makes diagnostics and troubleshooting easier in challenging environments and hazardous locations.

The GO Switch 7LY sensor’s highly visible, dual LEDs provide visual confirmation that the device is getting power and that the switch is accurately sensing. The product’s hazardous area certifications and ability to withstand temporary submersion make it ideal for applications in process industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, refineries, mining, water and wastewater.

Emerson’s new GO Switch offering has many advantages over other types of position sensors. It gives process designers the flexibility to use the same sensor in various applications without having to specify different models. The sensor’s polarity insensitivity eliminates the need to specify NPN or PNP products. Its simple contact arrangement makes it easier to install. A stainless-steel sensing face allows for additional robustness and reliability, and its certifications for Class I, Division 2, Groups A-D; Class II, Division 2, Groups E-G; and Class III permit flexibility in selection.

Chesterton: Multi-Purpose, High-Pressure, Burn-Resistant Pump Packing

Chesterton 2212 DualPacChesterton has released its latest pump packing innovation. DualPac 2212 is a new non-staining, high-pressure packing that resists burning, extrusion and requires significantly fewer gland adjustments than conventional packing.

DualPac 2212 is the second product release with DualPac braiding technology. It combines a burn-resistant material (white) on the sealing side, with a highly resilient outer fiber (yellow). The burn-resistant material conforms to the pump shaft delivering a superior sealing performance, while the highly resilient fiber resists extrusion and transfers radial load to the sealing side of the packing. The result is a packing that utilizes the gland load more efficiently and achieves a reliable and quicker break-in period.

DualPac 2212 is designed for demanding abrasive sealing applications in rotating equipment such as agitators, mixers, stock pumps, sludge pumps, slurry pumps, and process pumps.

Siemens: New Sipart Positioners

Siemens Image for Press Release 4.2.19Siemens extends its positioner portfolio with Sipart PS100

  • Sipart PS100 for fast, easy commissioning
  • Sipart PS2 positioner with improved diagnostics functions
  • Siemens valve monitoring app with extensive control and analysis options

With the Sipart PS100, Siemens is presenting a new positioner that is impressively easy to commission and highly robust. The Sipart PS100 can be initialized quickly at the touch of a button, automatically adjusting itself to the attached valve. If required, it is possible to optimize the positioner for a specific application with just one further touch of a button. Just as some cameras feature portrait, sport or night mode, the positioner can be set to different modes for precise and fast adjustment, open/close operation and other applications. These functionalities save time, cut the costs of commissioning, and increase the return on investment.

The Sipart PS100 is fitted with a large, easy-to-read display that allows users to see the status of the device at a glance. With its four-button operation and Namur NE107 support, the device can be configured quickly and conveniently.

The Sipart PS100 is available in two enclosure variants: polycarbonate and aluminum. Thanks to these particularly robust and durable materials, the new addition to the Siemens positioner portfolio is capable of withstanding extremely harsh and aggressive environments. The Sipart PS100 uses state-of-the-art contactless technology to detect the position of the valve. This eliminates wear, extending the device's service life and facilitating easier, faster commissioning.

The Sipart PS2, an established element of the Siemens positioner portfolio, has gained some new features. Optional pressure sensors improve the valve diagnostics and process monitoring, increasing the degree of utilization and availability of the plant. The enhanced positioner supports digitalization in plants. The Siemens valve monitoring app provides users with all the information they need to follow a predictive maintenance approach by performing cloud-based analyses of valve data. It makes extensive control and analysis options available to users so that they can detect in good time when service tasks need to be carried out before potential faults occur. In this way, the use of the valve monitoring app makes it possible to cut maintenance and operating costs.

Val-Matic: VaultSafe Family of Products

Val Matic VaultSafeVal-Matic’s VaultSafe Family of Products are designed to protect potable water systems from contaminated flood waters, freezing temperatures and intentional harmful contamination. The VaultSafe Family consists of the FloodSafe Inflow Preventer, the FrostSafe air damper and the VentSafe vent pipe security cage. The FloodSafe prevents contaminated water from passing through it thus preventing it from entering the air valve outlet and compromising the potable water system with its dual chambers and float checks. The FrostSafe minimizes the thermal exchange of cold and warm air in and out of a vault to help prevent freezing with a bi-directional hingeless disc and wafer design. The VentSafe safe guards vent pipes against the hazards of nesting animals and intentional harmful activities because of its hemispherical screened security cage.
