Conveniently Calibrate Plant Vacuum Gauges

Why do vacuum gauges need to be calibrated?

The largest uncertainty when using vacuum gauges on a process plant is knowing when the process has caused drift or shifts of calibration. Many processes handle vapours and, if any condensation or deposition happens, the chances are it will also happen in the vacuum gauge. Many such gauges – Pirani, cold cathose and ion gauges – use thermal or ionisation cross-section measurements to infer the level of vacuum being experienced and they have filaments, cathodes and other hardware, all of which may be coated with by-products from the process.

LG Motion chosen for Astrium space satellite component test rig

Basingstoke, June 2013: As a world leader in space transportation and satellite systems, Astrium boasts some of the most advanced design, manufacturing and test facilities in the industry. With locations throughout Europe, the USA, Africa, and Asia the group includes the Portsmouth – UK based Astrium Ltd, specialising in advanced payloads for communications, navigation and Earth observation satellites.

QTP Environmental Expansion Offers IP Test Equipment

QTP Environmental Ltd a UK based supplier of environmental test equipment has announced a new range of products to complement their range of climatic test chambers. The new range of Ingress Protection (IP) test equipment from German manufacturer iTS GmbH is available now and provides equipment for the full scope of IP testing from dust through to water.

Ingress protection testing has been in use for many decades and is often carried out with DIY test rigs, however with the drive towards repeatability and high quality control there is a need for standardised equipment that can be used by mulitple test facilities to ensure the same test is carried out everywhere in accordance with International standards such as ANSI/IEC 60529.

VACON DRIVES DON’T MIND THE SNOW!

Even when they’re operating outdoors in extreme weather conditions, ac variable speed drives in the latest VACON® 100 X range need no additional protection of any kind, making them a cost-effective and convenient choice for use in demanding environments where ordinary drives would need to be mounted within a protective enclosure.

With a power range up to 37 kW, which is unmatched by competitive products, VACON 100 X drives feature a rugged die-cast metal enclosure with an IP66 ingress protection rating and have an exceptionally wide operating temperature range of -40 ºC to +60 ºC, allowing them to perform reliably and consistently in even the toughest of operating conditions.

Weber 4050 Pallet Applicator Bar Code Scan System

The Weber 4050P Pallet Applicator is designed to label pallets on two adjacent sides without having to stop the pallet. This differentiates the system from other Pallet Applicators in the market and makes the 4050P one of the fastest systems available capable of labelling up to 420 pallets per hour. However with Pallet Labelling there is sometimes the requirement to validate that the barcodes printed are able to be scanned and also that the label has been applied to the product.

The 4050P Pallet Applicator is able to meet these criteria, however in cases where this is required the pallet has to be stopped to ensure that if incorrect labels are printed then they can be re-printed and applied to the product.

NOV MONO INTRODUCES NEW API-COMPLIANT PROGRESSING CAVITY PUMPS FOR OIL AND GAS APPLICATIONS

The launch of a new range of API 676-compliant progressing cavity (PC) pumps has focused attention on the ability of NOV Mono to supply pumping solutions designed specifically for oil and gas applications.

Mono’s PC technology is ideally suited to the typically arduous applications found in this sector, where solids-entrained multiphase fluids such as drilling muds, drill cuttings and produced waters need to be transferred with a steady flow and low shear. The new API 676 EZstripTM pumps provide a practical, reliable and proven solution which helps prevent emulsification, while also resisting the effects of abrasion without gas locking. This makes them ideal for many types of oil, gas and mud handling duties in drilling, exploration, production, processing and separation operations.

Our Sole Concern Is The Health Of Your Skin

Skin protection starts with the use of pr88 the wash off cream or the new pr88 liquid known throughout the world as the finest “barrier” cream money can buy, but there are many situations where pr88 does not provide the ideal protection. An example is in workplaces with intensive radiation most often from electric are welding lamps for hardening of plastics and drying of paint etc. In this situation the use of prUV skin protection will guarantee that rays from UVA, UVB and UVC will be unable to damage the skin protected by prUV lotion. Simple to apply in all areas of the body, including the face, the lotion is removed by the simple expedient of washing.

Alloy Wire International – wire to resist high temperature & corrosion

Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy, Nimonic…… and 40 more Exotic alloys are all manufactured in wire and bar from 21 mm down to 0.025 mm by the 100% employee owned British company – Alloy Wire International in the West Midlands. Their nickel alloy wires and bars are chosen for springs and engineered parts working in very high temperatures or very corrosive environments, where even stainless steel would not give the desired performance. For this reason they are specified for aerospace, nuclear and oil field applications where the harsh environment necessitates using these alloys to achieve the performance.
