Temperature sensors, temperature controls, thermal imagers and other instrumentation are used to measure process conditions and adjust the rate of heating to deliver the heating profile desired for the product.
Used after process heating operations, temporary cooling solutions such as cooling towers, chillers and air conditioners provide significant benefits. They allow petrochemical and refining companies to avoid project delays and improve their balance sheet by avoiding high cost capital expenditure (CAPEX) commitments on short- to mid-term duration needs.
Whether maintaining pipe temperatures in a petrochemical plant on the Gulf of Mexico or a platform off the windswept Scottish coast, facility managers are all too familiar with the challenges such a task poses.
Many industrial laundry processors use sizeable industrial machines to process laundry on a large scale. In many countries, industrial laundry processors must follow regulations to confirm — via temperature verification — that proper processing has occurred.
Exergen Global is partnering with VDL Group to provide a custom solution for HP Indigo 10000, 20000 and 30000 series digital presses that will ensure optimal print quality by precisely measuring drum temperature.
General-purpose and clean-in-place (CIP) sanitary bimetal thermometers measure the temperature of a material within a process piping system, tank, vessel or other application that requires a local indication or reading.
Once turned on, Model BW Clip4 can operate continuously for two years without the need to change sensors or charge batteries. Suited for oil and gas, heavy manufacturing, confined space and other applications, the portable gas monitor reduces maintenance costs by eliminating repair work and the need to stock additional sensors and spare units.
The M-Series incorporates the company’s Model 4081 advanced process controller, which is designed to improve user efficiency. Integrated features reduce startup time, simplify operation and minimize downtime.
For most industrial temperature measurements, the sensing element is never directly exposed to the process. The electronic element such as a thermocouple (TC), resistance temperature detector (RTD) or thermistor is encased inside a metallic enclosure, typically a section of stainless steel tubing closed at one end.
