Computer Aided Engineering meets rupture discs

REMBE is continually expanding its portfolio of products and services. The latest addition to its consulting and engineering services is currently REMBE CAE.

Plug & play gas detection

West Herts College approached International Gas Detectors (IGD) with a need to track flammable gas leaks in their craft room – a relatively simple requirement on paper. As it turned out, the challenge was the costs and not the technical aspect. Just like many other educational and similar clients, West Herts had the budget for the installation or the equipment, but not both. Fortunately, IGD had an innovative solution for West Herts College.

Micronics Application Note – General Waters: Manufacturer and supplier of water treatment plants depend on Micronics flowmeters

A leading manufacturer and supplier of water treatment plants has used several Micronics flowmeters over the last 10 years. Caerphilly-based General Waters Ltd, have been involved in the design, installation and operation of some of the largest water filtration plants in Europe and used a U1000 on a D11 water system on a semi-conductor site in South Wales in August last year when the client, Infineon found that their existing paddle wheel flowmeter had failed.

Support Sustainability & Industry4 with Pirana CMMS, the Complete Maintenance Software Solution,….. and it’s affordable!

CMMS reports and KPIs provide a measure, and a record of the continuous improvement programme. A KPI module will provide sophisticated measures such as Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and PPM to Corrective Ratio; but the simple KPIs may be just as informative. Is the weekly total of work orders trending up or down? How about downtime on critical assets? Or the value of parts issued from stores?

New Infographic helps packaging engineers understand the advantages of bentonite clay based desiccants

Packaging engineers responsible for ensuring the quality and shelf life of packaged products from the damaging effects of moisture have several choices when it comes to desiccants.  Clariant’s new Infographic helps engineers understand the advantages of using a natural mineral such as bentonite clay based desiccants for their packaging applications.

Take a fresh approach to electrical and mechanical troubleshooting

With the latest developments and the advent of low cost spot thermal cameras, thermography is now accessible to all for the fast troubleshooting of electrical and mechanical installations.

The invisible enemy of technical cleanliness

The belief that dirt or debris is not a major issue when it comes to technical cleanliness is, in truth, fiction.

Dirt and Debris should be a major concern for any one responsible for customer complaints, managing brand image through to product re-call, re-work or complete write-off.

Reliable connection for cooling water circuits

The right choice of materials prevents damage from corrosion by cooling water

Corrosion damage through aggressive media is a common problem. But even such a seemingly harmless liquid such as cooling water can have aggressive properties depending on the regional or local composition of the water and can cause creeping or quickly progressing corrosion in closed cooling water circuits. The solid metal connections of the Eisele LIQUIDLINE were specially developed for such demanding applications and have solved many a corrosion problem.
