Burner Management System Signal Splitter Application for a Pulp and Paper Mill

A pulp and paper mill had a black liquor BMS (Burner Management System) that per NFPA 85 requires that its safety logic system be totally independent from other logic systems.  The challenge was they required that key temperature and pressure signals also get monitored and recorded by their BPCS (Basic Process Control System). Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem.

Enhanced Feature - MODBUS Master - Turns the NCS into Universal MODBUS Plant Solution

Enhanced Feature - MODBUS Master - Turns the NCS into Universal MODBUS Plant Solution

MODBUS still remains the most popular industrial networking standard in the process industries.  MODBUS devices communicate over twisted pair, Ethernet, Fiber and even communicate via  industrial wireless radios.  Most often MODBUS slave devices communicate over RS-485 twisted pair networks that are abundant in most plants.  The recent installation of Ethernet and Fiber backbones has led way to the use of many MODBUS/TCP devices.

Video Highlights HCS Natural Gas and Oil Wellhead Applications

Video Highlights HCS Natural Gas and Oil Wellhead Applications

If you are involved in the production of natural gas and oil, you understand the challenge of providing power for monitoring and control instrumentation at site locations with limited power resources. One way to combat this is with the use of the HCS HART® Concentrator System from Moore Industries. Watch a video that shows how the HCS saves money and time by consolidating wiring and reducing power consumption at remote natural gas and oil production sites.

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Flexible RTD Sensors Needed for Cold and Hot Fluid Lines

Temperature Q&A with JR Madden: Flexible RTD Sensors Needed for Cold and Hot Fluid Lines
Q: I have a project for six RTD measurements that makes using standard fixed length sensors difficult because there is little clearance near the top of the thermowell for sensor insertion.  It looks like your “WORM Sensor” would be an ideal fit for the application because of its flexible design.  These RTD sensors need to be 100 or 1000 ohm platinum elements with Class A or 1/3 DIN accuracy ratings. They will be used to monitor chilled and hot water lines with min and max temperature limits of 30 F and 180 F.  Maximum insertion length in these ¼ inch ID thermowells is about 10 inches.  I noticed that your standard WORM length is 24 or 36 inches.  Are custom length WORM sensors available?  If so, what cost is associated with ordering multiple sensors at custom lengths?  Lastly, we usually request test data with all of our sensors and check them in our air bath or heat block calibration units.  Can you offer a test report or test data points with these WORM sensors?
