SAVE 10% OF YOUR CIP CHEMICAL USE BY CHOOSING YOKOGAWA CONDUCTIVITY TRANSMITTERS

SC450Understanding exactly what is going on when diluting Chemicals for CIP applications in your process will help you save 10% or more of the chemicals you are using – which of course has the added benefit of not needing to be treated as waste in your effluent system saving you further money.

Current methods for measuring concentration of  1 to 3%  NaOH Caustic and  HNO3  Nitric Acid solutions especially at elevated temperatures typically 60 to 80 degC ,  lead to 10%  more chemical being utilised than is required to clean the process .

With the correct selection of Temperature Compensation , we will save you 10% of your chemical use and we will be delighted to call and show you how.

Our Yokogawa Sc450 and Flexa Series of process Conductivity/Concentration meters have the most advanced built in temperature compensation curves available for your CIP activities.

A SECURE PAPERLESS ‘INDEPENDENT MONITORING SYSTEM’ FOR WASHERS & STERILISERS

YOKOGAWA DXAdvanced R4

Irish Power and Process have successfully implemented an IMS system for Sterilisers (Autoclaves) and Washers in Irish hospitals to provide secure cycle date for traceability of surgical instrument sets from Theatre to Surgery and back through the Central Sterile Service Department (CSSD) or Hospital Sterile Supply Units (HSSU) for sterilisation.

The CSSD/HSSU departments in hospitals provide a critical function to ensure the sterility of instruments which ultimately protect patients from infection. With the increasing levels of regulation and emphasis on infection control, it is imperative that these departments are equipped with the best solutions to assist them in ensuring the sterility of the instruments that pass through.

The Yokogawa DXAdvanced R4 provides the perfect solution.

Yokogawa ISA100 Field Wireless: Long Range Communication Test (600m)

Calibration of Conductivity Measurements in UPW and WFI

Having  trouble with conductivity calibrations in low conductivity applications ?  trying to meet the requirements of USP or EP to calibrate and verify cell constants to 2%  ?  Using Standard Solutions with values such as 1.3, 5 and 10 uS is no way to solve this problem !  Independent reports suggest this leads to errors in the region of 15% routinely and we have seen errors of over 40% !!! We have developed an accurate and  robust field calibrator based on Yokogawa’s proven technology together  with an accredited laboratory partner to solve this problem. Certified and Wetted parts electropolished, this Master Meter is changing the way technicians look at Conductivity Calibrations.  We have  over 20 pharma customers in Ireland using these successfully ,   improving what was historically a troublesome area for them .

We supply Accredited Training with each unit purchased !  Drop us a line and we will send an information pack Conductivity Master Meter

NEW ARRIVAL Fluke 8508A 8 1/2 digit multimeter

Yokogawa Calibrator  CA150
WOW – what performance from the worlds two leading instrumentation companies

We just took delivery of our new demo 8508A  multimeter, Fluke’s 8 /12 digit DMM with the capability to measure voltage to better than 3ppm over 1 year – thats so many decimal places my head is spinning.  we decided to test our other incredible piece of field calibration kit – Yokogawa;s CA150 field calibrator which sources and measures – Look at the results ! WOW

This is the kind of performance we have come to expect from both of these great companies but even for us we are blown away by the incredible accuracy from both instruments.

Measuring the Performance of Electric Motors

Bulletin Aplus 

Task:
A machine driven by an electric motor consumes a certain amount of active power (Watts).

For example, a newly rebuilt 3-phase motor may use 4.0 kW while running.

As soon as the power consumption increases to 4.2 kW it may indicate that the motor bearings are going bad or some other machine component is beginning to fail.

Solution:
The A210 Power Meter is a very cost effective device for monitoring the performance of electric motors in critical applications where expensive downtime cannot be tolerated.

The A210 can be installed near the motor either in the optional NEMA 4 housing, on a DIN-rail using the optional DIN rail adapter, or in a ¼ DIN panel cutout.

The A210 is connected to monitor voltage and current of the electric motor. The motor can be single phase or 3-phase, 3- or 4-wire . PT and CT ratios can be easily programmed from the front panel.

Three values such as Voltage, total Current, phase Current, kWatt, kVAR, Active Power (Watts), Reactive Power (VAR), and Power Factor (pF) can be shown on the A210 triple display. These values allow you to monitor the running system.

The A210 also has two alarm functions, which, for example, can be set up by the user for Watt and VAR limits. If something causes the motor power consumption goes up, it will trigger an alarm as soon as the setpoint is reached, and indicate the actual measurements when an alarm was triggered.

The two alarms can be set at different levels: low value as a warning and a higher value for a possible breakdown.

This alerts the operator of a potential problem and provides a cost effective way to prevent unexpected breakdowns and lost production on any type of machine operated by an electric motor.

Solvay – Environmental Monitoring System

Solvay Logo

Irish Power and Process Ltd successfully installed and commissioned an environmental monitoring system (EMS), together with associated field and analytical instrumentation at Solvay in Carrigtwohill Cork.

Utilising Yokogawa’s DxAdvanced paperless and Network based recording system, the system logs data, saves it daily to a secure server, publishes the data on web based reports, and can email periodic data from the field instrumentation or view on demand.
The system also has email on Alarm capability which alerts engineers if the system is moving outside allowable limits, set through its EPA licence arrangements.

Yokogawa DaqStation
DAQSTATION Models display measurement data in real-time on a high resolution TFT color liquid crystal display. Data can be saved to Internal Large ( up to 200MB ) capacity non volatile memory, external CompactFlash memory card, or USB drives , offering an incredible level of security to data storage.. DXadvanced include a standard Ethernet port with built-in Web Server and E-mail functions and TCP I/P and FTP protocol support.

The associated Yokogawa field instruments include Yokogawa Advanced pH analysers pH450, and Yokogawa Magnetic flowmeters Admag AXF.

The PH450 is a touch screen pH transmitter with powerful self diagnostic features that ensure, the pH system is intact, the sensors are immersed in liquid, the system is not contaminated and the glass is not broken. The Model PH450 provides the best pH measurement accuracy in the industry resulting from advanced temperature compensation functionality, preloaded calibration standards, stability checks and online sensor and analyzer diagnostics to provide verifiable results.

Yokogawa PH450G

The AXF magnetic flowmeter is a product with outstanding reliability and ease of operation, developed on the basis of decades of fieldproven experience.
The AXF magnetic flowmeter is significantly easier to maintain thanks to the combination of replaceable electrodes and a diagnostic function that detects the adhesion level on the electrodes. The AXF also employs a dual frequency excitation method that eliminates fluid noise.

The AXF Flowmeter offers mA output for Flow rate, takes advantage of the flow totaliser functions of the DXadvnaced recorder so separate Flow Totaliser is not required, and offers a pulse output to a refrigerated water sampling system so that samples are taken for lab analysis automatically.

Solvay , who were already familiar with Yokogawa recorder systems on 21cfrPart11 GMP applications are delighted with the ease at which they can view the data from the system and compile it in a way which suits internal and external regulatory personnel .
