Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Measuring Bearing Temperature with a Surface Mounted Sensor

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Measuring Bearing Temperature with a Surface Mounted Sensor

Q. We want to measure bearing temperature in our motors to alert us of overheating. We have used a type of sensor which inserts into the side of the motor, but they leak and fail often. We would like to put something on the surface of the motor outside of the bearing housing, but we do not want something welded to the housing. What can you suggest?

New White Paper Addresses the Fundamental Advantages of Associated Intrinsically Safe Apparatus

New White Paper Addresses the Fundamental Advantages of Associated Intrinsically Safe Apparatus
Intrinsic safety is increasing worldwide as a method of hazardous area protection with monitoring and measurement instruments. Significant savings, both initial installation and ongoing maintenance costs, can be realized in intrinsically-safe (IS) facilities or projects by selecting an associated apparatus that encompasses the required IS barrier protection for your system. “Associated Apparatus: The Safe and Most Affordable IS Solution” gives you a brief introduction to intrinsic safety, the different components in an intrinsically-safe system, and the two different types of barriers.

STA Aids in Functional Safety Coal Gas Extraction Application Down Under

STA Aids in Functional Safety Coal Gas Extraction Application Down Under

Moore Industries-Pacific recently sold 221 STA Safety Trip Alarms to be used in a Functional Safety coal gas extraction application in Australia. A Coal Seam Gas exploration company with hundreds of sites in Queensland has production wells with up to 10 inputs controlled locally by Remote Terminal Units (RTUs). The STA will be implemented as part of their independent Protection System with a level alarm on each wellhead separator. Larger volume production wells may need up to four separators per RTU panel.
