Join us on June 12th for our

complimentary RTDology session, 

“Thermocouples – Operation and Application”

Thermocouples can be an ideal choice for temperature measurement in processes where the environment is harsh and/or the temperature is above 700°F. Selecting the correct thermocouple for your process is critical to achieving accurate and reliable measurements. Bill Bergquist, Senior Application Engineer at Burns, will lead this one-hour practical session packed with facts and insights to help you make the right choice.

We’ll cover topics including:
– Basic Operation
– Types and Temperature Ranges
– Typical Applications and Sensor Selection
– Failure Modes
– And much more!

Thermography Principles A5 Booklet

The Thermography Principles A5 booklet was created by Fluke and is designed to provide an introduction to thermal imager operation principles and procedures.

Thermal imagers have become essential troubleshooting and preventive maintenance discovery and diagnostic tools for electricians and technicians in industrial, process, and commercial applications.

They are also a key tool for service providers to help build their businesses in the building diagnostic and inspection industries.

Introduction to Thermography Principles covers the fundamental theory, operation, and application of using thermal imagers.

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

Application Note

Measuring the Performance of Electric Motors

Bulletin Aplus 

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.

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.
