An effective vibration measuring program can reduce downtime for manufacturers, but some tools are better situated for certain scenarios, and users should assess application needs and the situation.
While thermowells are often used in process safety measuring, non-invasive measuring can offer many benefits and improved results.
NASA carried out extensive ground vibration tests for its X-57 "Maxwell" electric aircraft, simulating the stresses it would experience during a real flight.
Emerson’s sensors and analytics help Colgate-Palmolive save energy and optimize production processes in manufacturing facilities, decreasing its carbon footprint. Other Emerson technologies applied to food processing and packaging were shown at Pack Expo Las Vegas, including controls, augmented reality, and pneumatics.
Building owners, manufacturers and institutions must seek ways to make their facilities more energy efficient with less environmental impact.
MIT researchers have developed a way of rapidly switching the magnetic polarity of a ferrimagnet 180 degrees with a small applied voltage, which could help improve data storage and create smaller sensors.
Compressor stations often employ automated valves activated using pressurized natural gas, requiring improved actuator designs to eliminate emissions.
Advanced temperature measurement technology leads to cleaner, safer, and more profitable downstream operations.
Ideally suited for measuring the flows of conductive liquids, as well as for volume measurement of water and corrosive liquids.
The Zone Water Detection Sensor detects the widespread presence of water in areas like floors or drop ceilings.
