Emerson: Communications Protocol for Switchbox Users

Emerson Hart7 Module sqEmerson has introduced a HART 7 position transmitter option for its TopWorx D-Series switchbox. The addition of the HART 7 communications protocol enables advanced diagnostic and monitoring capabilities for valve integrators and automators. It helps improve operational efficiency and maintenance planning for plants in process industries such as oil and gas, chemical, power and refining.

The HART 7 position transmitter’s easy-to-use LCD display and navigation buttons permit local 5-point calibration for more accurate setup on linear applications. Advanced diagnostic capabilities include measurements such as percent valve is open/closed, open and close dwell time, valve transition time – from open to close, and last open/close stroke time.

Metso: Updated Expertune PlantTriage

Metso Updated Expertune PlantTriage SoftwareMetso has announced a new version of its Metso Expertune PlantTriage control loop monitoring software. The newest version further improves process plant operational efficiency, reduces cybersecurity risks, and helps to improve profitability.

This version provides a clearer view of PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) tuning benefits via a new Performance Evaluation dashboard and a Performance Summary panel. These features show the effect new tuning parameters will have on valve duty, relative response time, robustness, and performance.

In addition, the PlantTriage Level Wizard is an advanced tool that tunes level controllers for surge tanks. The purpose of surge tanks is to maintain a constant flow to the next stage of the process. Proper tuning guarantees maximum use of surge, while preventing the tank from emptying or overflowing. The Level Wizard helps to get the balance just right.

The latest version also includes advances in cybersecurity. Users may now choose encryption on communications with PlantTriage servers. Other improve­ments make the browser interface more secure, robust, and less vulnerable to attack.

Victaulic: Grooved Mechanical Piping System for Saturated Steam

Victaulic Grooved Mechanical Piping System for Saturated SteamVictaulic has developed the world’s first grooved piping system for saturated steam. Designed for use on commercial and industrial steam applications, the system features the Style 870 rigid coupling, a full line of fittings, a gate valve and a grooving tool to process the Victaulic proprietary OGS-200 groove profile. The Victaulic grooved steam system eliminates the need to weld steam piping, and can work for applications with pressures up to 1379 kPa and temperatures up to 198°C. Thanks to their innovative grooved system, Victaulic steam couplings and fittings make installation and maintenance easier, shorten construction schedules, reduce downtime and maintain safer, more productive worksites.

Joining steam piping with grooved couplings enables faster, easier installation than welding, threading and flanging. During installation, pipe is simply joined by positioning the coupling seal and housing segments on the pipe ends and tightening the bolts and nuts to the specified torque requirement. Installation is completed up to five times faster than other joining methods.
