The Competence Center for Engineering & Maintenance at BASF introduced thermal elements that reduce the vibrating mass in the connection area.
Competence Center for Engineering & Maintenance at BASF, Florham Park,
N.J., has introduced its new generation of thermal elements, of which the EH
model reduces the vibrating mass in the connection area.
thermal element is “particularly suitable for processes with stronger
vibrations,” says Bernd Glaser, who heads the company’s Fittings, Metal
EH design can be equipped with two- or four-conductor technology and installed
mechanically via a conventional or specially developed measuring lens. It permits
redundant pressure and temperature measurements in reactors, heat exchangers
and pipework systems with up to eight control components.
EN and other BASF dynamic thermal elements are suitable for use at process
pressure up to 3,600 bar and respond to temperature changes 2.5 to three times
faster than conventional models, the company says.
