The use of optical fiber for temperature sensing is expanding beyond safety applications. Optical sensors are replacing spot sampling in implementations that require accurate heat measurement and control.
Many industries utilize heat for manufacturing processes. Whether the application involves removing residual moisture on the surface of a part, drying a coating on cable assemblies or the preheating of metals during a forming process, heating is one of the driving components.
Line of power supplies meets functional safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3. Model Quint 20+ power supply has an integrated decoupling Mosfet and double overvoltage protection circuitry to meet rigorous SIL 3 safety regulations without the need for external redundancy.
Like many of the process industries, thermal processing is a critical necessity to the oil-and-gas industry. Applications range from simple line heaters being fed from a single well to safety instrumented systems at a large-scale refinery. Regardless of the application, the thermal process is measured based on how safe, environmentally friendly and efficient it is.
A provider of natural gas and natural gas liquids as well as crude oil storage, distribution, transmission and transportation services, Dallas-based EnLink Midstream has operations in the most prolific oil-and-gas region in the United States.
Series 8214 has a double-disc design with overtravel to provide redundant sealing for leaktight shutoff. Features include visual indication of open and shut position; proof of closure switch; and silicon-free construction.
Tandem seal option for the Dean RA Series air-cooled pump helps protect environmentally sensitive areas from ground leaks, increase safety with added protection to avoid flammable fluids and improve compliance with insurance requirements.
On Demand Steam boiler safety concerns have typically been based on the potential for catastrophic explosions. However, experts suggest that while some types of boilers can be safer than others based on physics (and the potential for explosions), boiler safety is also about everyday burns, bumps, and bruises.
On Demand This webinar will emphasize safety systems and practices that are addressed in the latest edition of NFPA 86 “Standard for Ovens and Furnaces” and will provide case studies of oven failures that led to product loss and personal injury.
