Save Money by Monitoring Peak Demand with the PWT

Save Money by Monitoring Peak Demand with the PWT
Controlling electricity costs is a major factor in the management of a manufacturing plant. It’s not uncommon for electrical utilities to charge a premium rate for power used during “peak” periods. If a manufacturing plant knows when these peak hours are, they can schedule major production for other time periods and save a significant amount of money.

Moore Industries Increases Efficiency at Water and Wastewater Facilities

Moore Industries Increases Efficiency at Water and Wastewater Facilities
As record droughts continue across the western United States, having a viable and efficient solution for treating water supplies and wastewater created by industrial applications is essential. Effective treatments can save large amounts of water while problems in water and wastewater treatment can lead to increased costs, reduced water treatment and even hazardous conditions.

Crude Oil Surplus Means Potential for Tank Overfill Safety Issues

Crude Oil Surplus Means Potential for Tank Overfill Safety Issues
The giant tanks at Cushing, Okla. – the largest crude oil hub in North America – were only at 25 percent capacity just seven months ago. But Bloomberg Business reports that the same tanks are now nearing record levels, having gone from 18 million barrels in late July to 51 million barrels.

Temperature Q&A with J.R. Madden: Accurate Differential Temperature Readings

Temperature Q&A with J.R. Madden: Accurate Differential Temperature Readings

Q: How do I measure differential temperature very accurately?

A: Whenever accuracy is the goal you want to start with RTDs (temperature range permitting). Many temperature transmitters will accept two RTDs and output the difference between the two inputs. However, if you look closely you will find they only make 3-wire RTD measurements and you may have errors and drifts due to wire length and corrosion build up over time.

IPT2 and PIT Transmit Pneumatic Signals in Tight Spaces

IPT2 and PIT Transmit Pneumatic Signals in Tight Spaces

A processing line was in the middle of an upgrade and ran into a major problem: they needed to transmit twice as many pneumatic signals as they had before. This was especially challenging because the control panel had very limited space but now needed to house 32 Current-to-Pressure (I/P) transmitters and 16 Pressure-to-Current (P/I) transmitters.
