Geotechnical company Hayward Baker uses QSI QTerm-G70 for applications in Peribonka, Quebec, Canada, where temperatures range from -20 to 24 °C (-4 to 75 °F). Other challenges to the hardware include snow, rain, wind and other extreme environmental conditions.
QSI, a manufacturer of rugged terminals, serves applications in the geotechnical and oil and gas industries, including concrete pumping, coiled tubing, pumping stations, and data acquisition.
According to Fritz Achhorner, corporate engineer at Hayward Baker, “For the Peribonka project, the QTerm-G70 replaces dated gauges and manual processes that were being relied on to get accurate data and make minute, yet pivotal changes with monitoring various flow rates, pressures, temperatures, and consistencies.”
The G70 HMI produced for Hayward Baker meets NEMA 4 sealing requirements and is temperature-rated from -30 to 80 °C (-22 to 176 °F).
