Pump acceptance testing – now online

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Ifat trade fair (14 to 18 May 2018) the KSB Group is introducing a trade fair novelty to its visitors: the newly created online pump acceptance testing. When purchasing large pumps, hydraulic acceptance tests and a final inspection are an essential proof of compliance with the guaranteed values. In the past, customers always had to travel to the test facility to witness their purchased pump being tested.

As testing usually takes place at the manufacturing plant, this is a time-consuming and costly trip, especially for international projects or those that are far away. Online acceptance testing is KSB’s answer, developed as a process enabling reliable and standard-compliant pump acceptance testing. The tests conducted are transmitted live via a specially protected part of the Internet. In an online meeting between pump manufacturer and customer, the customer can see the live camera view of the pump in the test facility as well as the characteristic curve measurement during testing.

Systematic flow metering – instrumentation for water supply in desert region

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 von admin

Aguas de Saltillo, the water utility company which serves the city of Saltillo in Mexico, is responsible for supplying drinking water to a population of around 850,000. To ensure a reliable supply in this arid desert city, the company relies on a water network which draws from several reservoirs with the aid of process instrumentation from Siemens. The Sitrans F M MAG 8000 electromagnetic flow meters used here are outstandingly robust, durable and reliable, as well as requiring minimal maintenance. Over a hundred of these devices have now been installed in the Aguas de Saltillo network.

Further growth for Endress+Hauser in China

Monday, January 29th, 2018 von admin

Only five years after the most recent expansion in China, the Endress+Hauser Group has once again increased production capacity with a third plant in Suzhou, 100 kilometers west of Shanghai. The 16,500-square-meter facility will help the Group meet disproportionately high growth in the Far East.

The opening of the new building, which is situated in Suzhou Industrial Park, a 450-square-kilometer campus that is home to more than 20,000 companies, was celebrated today in the presence of representatives from government and business, as well as customers and employees. The new plant will give the centers of competence for flow measurement engineering, liquid analysis and temperature measurement engineering additional capacity.

Sick: ultrasonic flow sensor for challenging environments

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017 von admin

The new non-contact Dosic ultrasonic flow sensor is used to detect the flow volume of conductive and non-conductive liquids. With its measurement channel and stainless-steel housing, the ultrasonic flowmeter is suitable for measuring tasks in hygienic and highly demanding environments.

The rugged and compact model combined with a hygienic design ensures highly reliable measurement results. This makes the sensor ideal for a wide range of application possibilities, including those where space restrictions or aggressive media play a role.

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.
