Instrumentation

Analyzer Measures the Concentrations of Sulfuric Acid and Oleum

images

The LiquiSonic analyzer monitors the concentrations of sulfuric acid and oleum. It can measure concentration or density using sonic velocity technology, which is independent of conductivity, color, and transparency of the process liquids. The analyzer can operate in extreme conditions, including temperatures between –100°C (–150°F) and 200°C (375°F) and at pressures up to 500 bar (7,000 psi).

Natural Gas Analyzer Monitors Moisture Content in Gas Streams

images

The J22 TDLAS gas analyzer accurately measures the water content of natural gas streams. The analyzer has an intuitive user interface that streamlines data handling and network connectivity. A built-in web server can connect to a laptop or other device via an Ethernet cable. The modularity of the analyzer simplifies maintenance in the field and enables easy access to components for quick replacements and upgrades. The analyzer can replace traditional electrochemical sensors (e.g., aluminum oxide, phosphorus pentoxide, quartz crystal microbalance, and chilled mirror) that often lose accuracy due to contamination and require frequent maintenance. The enclosure meets Ingress Protection (IP)-66 and Type 4X requirements for installation in typical natural gas application locations.

Fluids and Solids Handling

Rotary Valves Feature an Automatic Rail Locking System

images

The sanitary HDMF Series rotary valves include a rail locking system that automatically secures the rotor in place when removed from the housing, simplifying the cleaning and inspection process. During cleaning or inspection, operators can set the rotor on parallel slide rails and rotate the rotor freely, enabling 360-deg. rotor access without removing it from the processing line. The valves are suitable for pneumatic conveying systems that transport powders, granules, and other dry materials that require frequent inspection and cleaning. In addition, the sanitary rotary valves are approved by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) for use in food and dairy processing.

Hygienic Twin-Screw Pump Is Available in Low-Flowrate Models

images

This twin-screw pump is offered in three new models to handle low flowrates in hygienic applications. The low-shear pumps can transfer sensitive, abrasive, and high- and low-viscosity fluids with large solids content for product transfer and clean-in-place (CIP) applications. Low pulsation and gentle solids handling capability reduce the risk of product damage. The pump features a robust, reliable design that meets stringent hygienic standards.

Batch-Weigh System Fully Automates Powder Dispensing

images

This batch-weigh system automatically transfers, weighs, and dispenses precise amounts of solid materials. It can transfer powders, pellets, flakes, and other bulk materials to mixers, hoppers, tanks, vessels, and containers. The system replaces manual and semi-automated processes with a fully automated approach that eliminates the potential for operator error. The system offers 99% batch weighing accuracy to improve batch-to-batch product consistency and reduce material waste and quality-control concerns. It is dust-tight and integrates the company’s Spiralfeeder flexible screw conveyor with companion infeed hopper, weigh hopper, load cells, pneumatic slide gate, and proprietary drive with integral seals. The system has integrated programmable logic controller (PLC)-based process controls for users to easily manage materials fed from one or multiple equipment locations to a common discharge location. The system can be installed in any sanitary, hazardous, and/or nonhazardous production environment.

Absorbers Protect Oxygen-Sensitive Products

images

Pharmakeep is a two-in-one oxygen and moisture absorber for oxygen-sensitive products, such as pharmaceuticals, probiotics, proteins, and other dry products. It quickly absorbs oxygen inside the headspace of product packaging, reducing oxygen concentrations from 20.8% to less than 0.01%, without the need for nitrogen flushing. The absorber is available as drop-in canisters and packets that accommodate various application requirements.

Heat Transfer

Mixer Heats and Cools Viscous Media

images

The P1 cooling mixer provides safe and efficient heat exchange of viscous media. A heat transfer fluid flows through both of the mixing elements, as well as through the double jacket. The forced guidance and constant mixing in the interior of the mixer enables short residence times and a narrow residence time distribution. Extremely uniform flow prevents product degradation and mitigates deposits or temperature peaks. The mixers can be used for both small-throughput (e.g., kg/hr) and high-throughput, industrial (i.e., ton/hr) applications. In addition, the mixer is compatible with continuously operated reactors.

Heat Exchangers Boast Small Tube Diameters

images

The C Series of industrial multitube heat exchangers has small tube diameters to improve heat transfer and decrease the overall unit size. More tubes can fit into each unit, which decreases the overall length of the heat exchanger for a given capacity. The heat exchangers are suitable for fluids with low-to-medium viscosities, as well as clean-in-place (CIP) fluids and general industrial fluids. The heat exchangers feature the company’s corrugated tube technology that increases heat transfer and thermal efficiency while also minimizing the effects of fouling. The heat exchangers are constructed of stainless steel and accommodate all of the standard connection types.

Server Offers Secure Data Exchange for Industry 4.0

images

The dataFEED Secure Integration Server is an interface between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) that efficiently exchanges data in a single component. The aggregating server uses Open Platform Communications United Architecture (OPC UA) space modeling for interface abstraction and data aggregation, handling facility changes or extensions within one domain. A single OPC UA server consolidates data from multiple sources to simplify configuration. A built-in security model restricts the address space for individual OPC UA client applications, enabling secure Industry 4.0.

Ligand and Precatalyst Offerings Expand

images

This range of Buchwald ligands and precatalysts has been expanded to include additional high-quality Buchwald ligands and precatalysts, including AdCyBrettPhos, AlPhos, EPhos Pd G4, EPhos, AdBrettPhos, and AdBrettPhos Pd G3. Buchwald ligands are electron-rich dialkylbiaryl phosphines that are used to improve chemical reactivity in palladium catalysis. Even minor structural changes to Buchwald ligands can dramatically affect their catalytic activity in cross-coupling reactions with different substrates, which has led to the development of numerous ligands that are tailored for specific reactions. Buchwald ligands play an important role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and organic electronic materials.
