The 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.
The thermal element is “particularly suitable for processes with stronger vibrations,” says Bernd Glaser, who heads the company’s Fittings, Metal Engineering Unit.
The 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.
The 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.
