Jumo: New Magnetic Inductive Flowmeter

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015 von admin

Jumo1Jumo, specialist for temperature and pressure measurement technology as well as for liquid analysis, introduced the magnetic inductive flowmeters Flowtrans Mag S01 and Mag H01.

  • The Mag S01 is available for nominal widths ranging from DN 10 to DN 300.
  • The Mag H01 with nominal widths of DN 3 to DN 100 was especially developed for hygienic applications.

For both versions, the conductivity of the measurement medium must be at least 5 µS/cm; the maximum temperature lies at 130°C, depending on the version. Both flowmeters are available either as a compact device or with a separate transmitter.

Grundfos: Direct Sensors – the sense organs of the pump

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 von admin

grundfos DirectYou can only change what is accessible by measurement – whoever wants to control a process flow of a pump needs reliable current data on the one hand, and on the other, possible intelligent linking and interpretation of this data: Sensors deliver data, microchips have stored software to interpret this and actuators implement the commands. To also offer technical benchmarks, the pump manufacturer Grundfos maintains well-equipped own research and development departments, finance and personnel dealing with motors, frequency converters, sensors, microchips and their programming.

The ‘Direct Sensor’ development is a micro-mechanical semiconductor sensor (MEMS, Micro-Electro-Mechanical System), which is produced in its own wafer fabrication facility of purity grade 10.

KSB: Mobile app brings Industry 4.0 to all pumps

Friday, May 15th, 2015 von admin

KSB_Sonolyzer_001The KSB Sonolyzer app is based on an algorithm that has been integrated in PumpMeter units for five years now, of which well over 30,000 have already been sold.
The smartphone-based application does not require knowledge of the individual characteristic curve or any additional technical data of the pump set to be measured, however, and can also be used with pumps from other manufacturers. Users can utilise the app to determine the load at which each centrifugal pump driven by a fixed-speed asynchronous motor is being operated. The following data must be entered for this purpose: the motor rating, the rated motor speed, the head and the flow rate of the pump. This information can be read from the name plate affixed to every pump.

Colfax/Allweiler: Intelligent pump monitoring

Monday, February 9th, 2015 von admin

!cid_BC04ED4BA47951C436EB@TENNCOMSINAIN-1000 is a platform, developed specifically for Allweiler pumps that are used in operationally-critical and environmentally-sensitive applications. IN-1000 improves safety while reducing operating costs. The core of the system is a software program developed by Allweiler.
The new Smart Platform can be used in straightforward condition monitoring to complex monitoring activities. This includes operational monitoring of several pumps for simultaneous fulfillment of safety and operating-cost requirements. Examples include monitoring of pressure, temperature, leaks, and vibrations. The system may also be expanded with standard industrial sensors.

KTR: Torque measuring shaft combining four measurements in one

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 von admin

DATAFLEX_mit_RADEX-NCKTR developed a measuring system calculating both angle of rotation and rotating direction in addition to torque and speed for the first time. The new Dataflex series covers a measuring range from 10 to 1,000 Nm and is scheduled to be extended to 5,000 Nm in 2015.

The new precision measuring shaft will rely on the approved measuring principle via strain gauges combined with the latest electronical components. Having a sampling rate of 10 Hz, the system allows for measuring serious torque peaks on highly dynamic drives. The data transmission resistant to interferences operates digitally with a resolution of 24 Bit having a measuring inaccuracy of 0.1 per cent of the terminal value only. The signal provided is extremely low-noise.

Prüftechnik: Precision laser shaft alignment

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014 von admin

Presse_RS5_255x172pxThe new RS5 sensor for the proven measurement system Optalign Smart RS introduces unique features to the mid-range shaft alignment segment. Smarter and faster, the new sensor also scores high in terms of usability. The XL HD PSD detector size, combined with the powerful ExtendRange functionality makes the measurement range virtually unlimited. In real terms, this means that large misalignments can even be measured over long distances. With the 5-axis technology, it is also the only sensor in this segment to offer Concurrent Live Move for machine corrections. This enables live monitoring of horizontal and vertical machine corrections at the same time, with the sensor at any rotational shaft position.
