Pressure transmitters for remote commissioning of functional safety

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018 von admin

Siemens presented Sitrans P320/420, the first pressure transmitter on the market to feature remote safety handling reducing commissioning time in applications requiring functional safety.

Via Simatic Process Device Manager (PDM) the safety integrity level (SIL) devices will be commissioned: rather than manually attending to each individual device across the facility, operators can commission transmitters from the control room. This next generation of pressure transmitters was developed according to IEC 61508 standard for the use in SIL 2/3.

Solenoid diaphragm metering pump with Dulconnect

Monitoring and controlling the interwoven processes produces an ever increasing amount of data and information. And this needs to be designed to be as transparent as possible. Modern metering pumps are equipped with features, which accommodate Chemistry 4.0 and/or Process 4.0. They reduce consumption of the raw materials and help to minimize operating errors and downtimes. This is achieved because the pumps are not only robust, adaptive and user-friendly, but are designed to offer comprehensive networking. They are robust: their construction ensures a long service life and high availability. They are adaptive and can automatically adapt to constantly changing operating conditions. They are user-friendly, easy to install and commission. Clear, intuitive operation ensures simple parameterization, calibration and storage. They can be networked they communicate using CANopen, Profibus and Profinet at fieldbus level and can be remote-controlled using an app.

New metering pumps gamma/ x and gamma/ XL clearly illustrate how these features are realized. ProMinent will present the new solenoid diaphragm metering pump at Achema 2018.

Pump monitoring with Atex certification

Monday, April 23rd, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, Allweiler will exhibit its intelligent condition and operation monitoring system (hall 8.0, booth D63). Known as IN-1000, it is now also available with Atex certification for use in EX zones. IN-1000 was developed specifically for Allweiler pumps that are used in operationally-critical and environmentally-sensitive applications in chemical engineering.

The IN-1000 can be used for a wide range of condition monitoring applications, from simple, single-pump installations to complex, multi-pump systems while improving safety and reducing operating costs simultaneously.
