Pressure regulator minimizes contamination

IR4000 Series pressure regulator has no internal threads, minimizing the risk of particulate contamination. A dual screen/filter further enhances performance. The screen is a 100-micron wire mesh and the filter is a 10-micron sintered metal element in the inlet port. It uses a compression member to secure the poppet in place.

Calibrator operates with or without PDA

PDA calibrators use commercially available personal digital assistants (PDAs) for a common interface with an intuitive touch screen, eliminating the need for buttons and knobs. The calibrators can source and read common process signals. The PDA can be used independently of the calibrator backpacks. Data may be shared with a desktop computer for reports or a certification of calibration. Transmation Products Group; www.transmationinc.com

Temperature transmitter isolates electronics

THZ Smart HART temperature transmitter features a dual compartment and display. The dual compartment allows access to the electronics without taking the unit out of service. An isolation seal protects the instrument from humidity, moisture, and corrosive materials potentially brought in through conduit entries. A glass window built into the front cap allows viewing of process status in the field. Moore Industries-Intl., Inc.; www.miinet.com

Water sensor eliminates lab testing

WS04 portable water sensor measures percent water saturation level and temperature of fluids without lab testing. It allows the user to take corrective action before free water appears, potentially damaging equipment or contaminating processes. It is a portable, battery-powered unit allowing access to varied sampling points. Pall Corp.; www.pall.com/contaminationcontrol
