DEMYSTIFYING THE DIAPHRAGM SEAL PRESSURE GAUGE

The diaphragm seal pressure gauge is an important tool in several industries. The diaphragm seal assists in separates and seals an enclosure. It is made of a stretchy material. This is why the seal is flexible allowing it to transmit the pressure but contain the substance that is enclosed. The applications of the diaphragm seals include defending the pressure gauges from the fluid whose pressure is being determined. The diaphragm seal pressure gauge consists of a diaphragm that has been firmly welded and clamped between two flanges to ensure that a liquid or gas does not leak. The diaphragm is therefore a membrane that separates a fluid from the pressure gauge. This way the fluid will not clog or destroy the pressure gauge.

The diaphragm seal pressure gauge is ideal for measuring high viscosity liquid, corrosive liquid and fluid that contains solid materials. The ability of this pressure gauge to work accurately even when dealing with dangerous fluids is based on its features. The diaphragm that is used is usually highly resistant to rust. This means that it can be used on the receiving part of the gauge when measuring liquids that are highly acidic. There are gauges that have diaphragms that are fixed through welding. This is ideal because the surface of the diaphragm can be cleaned easily by loosening the casing locks. There is a zero-adjusting needle that is installed in the pressure gauge. This means that the corrections on the calibration of the instrument can be done with minimal effort. The use of a welded diaphragm is a great advantage to any industry. This is because the risks of the filling fluid seeping have been reduced significantly. The instrument will therefore perform accurately and produce reliable results during its use.

The use of a dampener for the diaphragm seal pressure gauges should be considered. This is because the dampener is the only tool that can protect the gauge from surge or high pulsating pressure. The dampener is usually fitted with a variable throttle that can be tuned to the pressure difference. The dampener will only choke the filled fluid meaning that the hazard of blocking will not be there. In addition to that, the throttling effect will be stable because the viscosity of the filling fluid is not dependent on temperature. All these features have been designed to give the pressure gauge the highest precision and accuracy in measuring the pressures of different fluids.

WHY TUBING AND AUTOCLAVE FITTINGS NEED TO BE COMPATIBLE

In the industries, the threaded pipes have been used for many years to join and seals fluid line systems. The pipes are easy to assemble and the technique is cost effective. However, the pipes have several limitations in their operations. The pipes are rigid and cannot be bend except in situations where a fitting is used to effect a change in direction. Identifying the size of a pipe is also difficult and you will need some level of experience to be able to do it effectively. This is why tubing is becoming the new trend in the industries. The difference is that dubbing is joined using the autoclave fittings. The tubes and pipes are both elongated and hollow meaning that they can perform the same type of work. However, the tubing has the advantage of offering leak-tight sealing because of the autoclave fittings.

Tubing has numerous advantages that make it ideal to use as compared to pipes. The tubing has easily identifiable sizes. The size of the tube usually refers to its outer diameter. This simply means that a ¼ ‘’ tube will actually have ¼’’ diameter. The tubing also possesses a higher strength to weight ratio. This is because it does not need extra thickness to accommodate the threads. This translates to material cost savings for setting up an industry. The tubing is also bendable therefore reducing the number of connections and possible leak paths that might cause a drop in pressure. This will also reduce the time and labor required to set up the system. The tubing and autoclave fittings are easy to disassemble and reassemble when there is need because of the few connections. The tubing will not need any thread tapes or lubricants that will slow down the installation process. The system is always clean with minimal risks of contamination.

You should always ensure that you select tubing that is compatible with the autoclave fittings. You will have to choose materials that comply with the set standards in your location. The ferrules of the fittings should be harder than the material used to make the tubing to ensure that the tubing performs properly. When you decide to use welded tubing, you should be careful not to make the welded beads too hard. A suitable tubing relies on the temperature, pressure and shock conditions of the application. There are several charts that you ca use to determine the maximum operation pressure allowed for tubing of different thicknesses.

SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION OF NOX

Selective catalytic reduction of NOx is a NOx emission control technology that is used in most industrial applications. It allows manufacturers to meet the strict EPA standards that recommend minimal nitrogen oxide emissions by machines. You should therefore always choose a NOx emission control system that guarantees compliance with the EPA standards. Nitrogen oxide is a common product of the combustion of several substance in the presence of oxygen. This product contributes in creation of acid rain and global warming. This is why its emission needs to be regulated at all costs. There are two major system configurations for the selective catalytic reduction of NOx: high dust selective catalytic reduction and tail end catalytic reduction. Each one of these systems is ideal for different industrial applications and you should select the one that will be effective in the conditions that you work in.

The selective catalytic reduction of NOx offers many benefits including the reduction of NOx. The technology that is used controls the amount of nitrogen oxide that is released after combustion. This is done by converting NOx into water and nitrogen. This reaction is promoted catalytically with ammonia acting as the reducing agent. The flue gas stream are usually conditioned upstream of the reaction chamber this achieves an equal distribution for all the reactants that take part in the reaction. In addition to that, it makes sure that the NOx reductions are within an accepted range. The ammonia slip levels are also maintained. The manufacturers have an expertise in fluid dynamics that they use to develop propriety mixing and injection systems ideal for selective catalytic reduction. This is what creates the optimum solutions for an industrial application depending on its size and location. The result is always the desired reaction that causes reduced emissions of nitrogen and oxygen.

The selective catalytic reduction of NOx is a wide area that uses different catalysts depending on the application. The common catalysts to be used are honeycomb type and plate type catalysts. The catalysts are made available in a variety of diameters. This allows you to select that diameter that is optimized for your industrial application. However, careful study of the composition of flue gas will have to be performed firs and the allowable pressure drop determined. This technology has been proven to work in majority of the industrial processes. You should ensure that you use the SCR system in your industrial processes to reduce the amounts of nitrogen oxides being emitted into the atmosphere.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE HYDRAULIC VALVE ACTUATORS

The hydraulic valve actuators are components that are manufactured for hydraulic equipment. The hydraulic equipment takes advantage of the liquid power to carry out certain operations. There are numerous hydraulic machines that are used such as the vehicles in construction sites used to remove earth and drill. The majority hydraulic machines have parts such as structure, traction, power train, control and many others. The heavy machines that are used in the industries use the same principles that are used by the simple machine. This includes the mechanical advantage. Mechanical advantage describes the ratio that is between the input forces multiplied by the force that is exerted. The hydraulic machines are gaining popularity because of the large amounts of power that they can transfer. All that is required are flexible small tubes that transmit the fluid and the machine will work efficiently.

There are several valves that are fitted to the machine to ensure that the machines function correctly. The presence of the valves is important since without them the machines cannot function. The valves are responsible for directing the fluid to the desired location. These valves are usually composed of a spool that is covered in cast iron for protection. The process of covering the spool is simply known as steel housing. There are several grooves and channels that exist in the steel exterior where the spool can slide and allow the fluids to flow to a desired location. This means that the flow of the fluid relies on the position of the spool. It is much easier to operate the hydraulic valve actuators because they are computerized and mechanized. In normal conditions, the spool is located at the center to stop the flow of the fluid. When in this position the spool is held by springs. When activated the spool will slide to the entrance of the hydraulic valve actuators and direct the fluid to pass through it. In case the spool rotates then the fluid will go through another path. The valves can be stacked to have a high tolerance. In the more complicated hydraulic machines, a control valve is installed for each cylinder. They have to possess high tolerance because they will be handling huge pressure and leakages will be a loss. The spools are usually moved with the aid of mechanical levers in the control valves. The hydraulic valve actuators are essential in the operation of hydraulic machineries and should always be of a high quality.

ABOUT MANUAL VALVE ACTUATORS

The manual valve actuators are found in many industrial applications. The main reason for this is the fact that they do not need any external power sources to be able to move the valve to a desired position. They take advantage of a chainwheel, lever, handwheel or any other suitable detachable mechanism that is capable of driving a train of gears whose arrangement results into a higher torque output. The mechanism that is used is ideal and very efficient. There are numerous manual valve actuators that rely on worm gears. These are mechanical devices that are capable of transmitting motion between right angle axes that do not intersect.

There are many benefits of using the manual valve actuators. The main advantages include the cheap price, reliability and the fact that you will not have to look for a power source. They are usually designed in a self-contained manner. Their simplicity makes them easy to maintain. The motion that they use to open and close the valve is the same and it is therefore easy to notice any errors or irregularities. The only disadvantage with these actuators is that they are not automated systems; this means that you will have to control them manually every time.

There are different types of valves that can utilize the actuators. The valves are selected depending on the nature of application. The valves have different motions that achieve different objectives. The rotary motion valves are able to rotate through a 90 degrees turn to open or close the valve. The element that is used to close the valve is usually an ellipse or a disc that rotates about the angular shaft. There are several examples of this valve including the butterfly, the ball and the multi-turn valves. There are also the linear motion valves. These are valves that possess a sliding stem that has been designed to either close or open the element. The valve stem might rise during the rotation or without the rotation depending on the design. The closing element that is used can be either a disk or a plug that is slid down or pushed against an orifice. Some of the examples of linear motion valves are diaphragm, gate, globe and angle valves. The manual valve actuators can be used in most of these valves depending on their applications. These actuators can save the industry a lot of money especially when they are needed in huge numbers.

HOW TO CHOOSE INDUSTRIAL BRAKES AND CLUTCHES

When looking for industrial brakes and clutches you will have to choose between two leading technologies. These are the air-based and the electric brakes and clutches. The option that you select will have to be cost effective and positively affect the production rate of your industry. This means that you will have to consider the performance of the individual components. In machine automation, the stopping and starting capacities are critical aspects. This is why inferior brakes and clutches usually translated to a lower production rate and poor quality of the product.

You should consider several factors before you choose the industrial brakes and clutches for your industry. The first step is to consider the response time and what impact it has on your factory. The response time refers to the total time that it takes from the turning on of power to the time the clutch or brake responds with the maximum torque. This also applies to when the power is turned off and the clutch disengages. A short response time is ideal for automated systems because they will preserve the quality of the product being produced and also maintain the integrity of the equipment. You will also have to consider the torque output of the industrial brakes and clutches. You will base your selection on the application that you have. The application can be to simply transmit torque, to offer torque for starts and stops or to vary the torque especially in the tensioning applications. The manufacturers usually provide tables and graphs that you can use to select the optimum size for the application that you have.

The thermal power is a measure of how the brake dissipates the heat that has been generated. This is an important aspect of the industrial brakes and clutches. There are several types of thermal conditions that you have to consider, these are heat sink, peak input rate and continuous heat dissipation. The peak input rate refers to the amount of heat that the brake or clutch disc is capable of absorbing without increasing its temperature to a level that will damage the friction interface. The heat sink value is a representation of the total amount of heat that the component can absorb within a certain period. It is a measure of the heat that is needed to raise the temperature of the friction plate. The continuous heat dissipation is a measurement of the mean rate at which the heat is generated at the surface of contact.

TYPES OF INDUSTRIAL BRAKES

There are several types of industrial brakes that you can use. The type of brake that you select will be determined by the nature of application that you have. The brakes have to undergo some level of testing to ensure that they will perform as expected.

The electro-thrust brakes have been used in the industries for very many years. Their sizes usually vary from 8 inches to 30 inches depending on the nature of the application. The torque that can be transmitted also varies depending on the size of the brake. The industrial brakes that are manufactured have to comply with certain standards for them to be used. These brakes are usually spring set for fail-safe operations using an electro-hydraulic actuator. The actuator will overcome the setting spring and release the brake. The actuator works through power that is applied to it. The housing of the brake system is usually filled with fluid. Fluid motion is created by the spinning of a motor. As the fluid moves in the housing it causes an upward pressure to a piston that overcomes the setting spring and manages to release the brake. When power to the motor is cut then the reverse processes happen the spring sets the brake ones more.

The hydraulic brakes are also common industrial brakes. They are spring released and set hydraulically for controlled stopping. They are used in industries and also heavy machinery such as bridge cranes. The brakes are known to have a high performance and are reliability. They are tough and are less likely to malfunction during operation. The sizes of the brakes wheels will vary from 6 inches to 18 inches. You have to choose the size that is best for you industry. The brakes are available in different settings depending on your requirements. The air remote control, electric remote control and hydraulic remote control options offer flexibility to the client who will be at liberty to choose brakes that work best for their situation.

There is also the magnetic brake. The brakes are spring set but electrically released. The brakes are usually set when a 230 VDC power is removed for the coils of the brakes. The brakes are usually made of one of two DC magnetics. When power is introduced into the coils and electromagnetic field is created, which bring the coils together and therefore releases the brakes. When the power is cut, the coils allow the spring to go back to their normal position. You should purchase the ideal industrial brakes for optimal performance.
