Schubert & Salzer Sliding Gate Control Valves from Miller Energy


The sliding gate control valve from Schubert & Salzer has an innovative design that allows it to handle complicated applications requiring precise control under challenging circumstances. The sliding gate valve's actuation power is roughly 10% that of a globe valve of the same nominal size and differential pressure, even if both designs have almost the same flow rate.

The valve handles steam, liquids, and gases. Sliding gate valves outperform traditional control valves and use smaller actuators because they require reduced actuating force. They provide lower weight and reduced installation dimensions due to the space-saving wafer design, especially in nominal sizes mid-large. 

Due to the unique design, harmful cavitation zones occur 1 - 2 meters beyond the valve in the case of a sliding gate valve, placing the destructive cavitation bubbles downstream, in the pipeline's center, causing no damage.

6 Reasons to Choose Brooks SLA Series Mass Flow Controllers

Brooks SLA Series Mass Flow Controllers

As firms migrate from Fieldbus to Ethernet networks, EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET are the fastest growing digital communication technologies in industrial automation. They ship the newest industrial ethernet nodes, almost 64% of the market. EtherNet/IP ™and PROFINET enable users to collect relevant data that helps keep essential systems on track by linking devices to a single network. Information sent across EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET networks provides better diagnostics, deviation alarms, and predictive maintenance, maximizing system uptime and lowering costs. 

As a result of this collaboration, Brooks Instrument has added EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET protocols to its industry-leading SLA Series mass flow controllers (MFCs). The SLA5800 and SLAMf mass flow controllers support EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET protocols and include advanced alarm and diagnostic capabilities.

Industry's Leading Ethernet Protocol Adoptions: EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET 

The value proposition for EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET is standard Internet and ethernet protocols. 
  • Options for star, ring, or daisy chain topologies. 
  • Operators can monitor real-time performance and network data by complying with IEEE Ethernet standards. 
  • Flexible network architecture compatible with ordinary Cat 5 cabling and routers simplifies network setup and guarantees all devices interact and exchange data. 
  • EtherNetIPTM and PROFINETTM enabled devices can provide rich data for process control, monitoring, diagnostics, and predictive maintenance.

REASON 1: OPEN, NON-PROPRIETARY, AND FUTURE-PROOF. 

Because EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET use the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP™), support exists from a vast ecosystem of solution providers for industrial process automation. EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET readily connect to a wide range of DCSs and PLCs, including: 
    • Allen-Bradley
    • Emerson 
    • Siemens
    • Rockwell

REASON 2: INTEROPERABLE WITH INDUSTRY-LEADING CONTROL SYSTEMS THROUGH ETHERNET/IP™ AND PROFINET

Due to the ability of contract manufacturers and end-users to use the EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET protocols to: 
    • Cut operating costs 
    • Boost process efficiency, quality, yield, and output.

REASON 3: PLUG & PLAY INTEGRATION WITH ROCKWELL AUTOMATION (ALLEN-BRADLEY) PLCS. 

Brooks Instrument engineers worked with Rockwell Automation to provide an upgraded device profile that simplifies the setup and integration of the MFC into the Rockwell Automation (Allen-Bradley) PLC. The SLA5800 and SLAMf are now compatible with EtherNet/IP™ from renowned automation manufacturers. 

The upgraded device/add-on profile: 
    • Setup or edit any of the attribute tabs or parameters. The user determines which attributes are appropriate for their procedure. 
    • Removes the requirement for programming expertise to connect the MFC to the network.

REASON 4: SLA5800 AND SLAMF FULLY INTEGRATE ETHERNET/IP™ AND PROFINET. 

On the SLA5800 and SLAMf with EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET, we deliver on our promise to provide value without losing equipment space. Brooks Instrument designed EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET directly into the mass flow controller, eliminating the need for add-on adapters or modules. The SLA5800 and SLAMf MFCs completely integrate EtherNet/IP™ and PROFINET. The EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET equipped SLA5800 and SLAMf MFCs have the same footprint as the regular SLA5800 and SLAMf. They also link to your EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET networks, eliminating the need for additional hardware such as gateways, analog I/O cards, or bespoke cabling and wires. All you need is standard ethernet wiring to get your device running and linked to the network.

REASON 5 : EASY WEB-BASED CONFIGURATION OF ETHERNET/IP™ AND PROFINET NETWORK SETTINGS IN SLA5800 AND SLAMF.

The SLA5800 and SLAMf with EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET have a user-friendly TCP/IP configuration. A web-based interface connects the MFC to the user's EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET networks. Once on the network, the user can quickly identify individual MFCs, saving time if the system has several MFCs.

REASON 6: THE LATEST DIAGNOSTICS AND PREDICTIVE FUNCTIONS, SOME EXCLUSIVE TO BROOKS INSTRUMENT MFCS, ARE ENABLED BY ETHERNET/IP™ AND PROFINET PROTOCOLS. 

Intelligent and data-rich mass flow controllers, the SLA5800 and SLAMf with EtherNet/IP™ or PROFINET may improve operational efficiency in equipment automation, metrology, and maintenance. 

For example, limiting the upstream gas input pressure may affect MFC accuracy. The alarm data could be supplied to an operator via the built-in restricted flow alarm.

Vaisala K Patents Refractometers - Refractive Index Measurement


Vaisala K-PATENTS Process Refractometers provide in-line solids and density measurement  for liquids for process control and industrial automation. 

Vaisala K-PATENTS Process Refractometers are commonly used to determine the liquid concentration or density. This measurement has been an essential element in the processing industries for over a century in all sectors, including refining, paper production, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and chemical manufacturing. , 

The measurement principle is critical angle measurement. The refractometer has three main components: a light source, a prism, and an image detector.  

The light source sends light rays to the prism and process interface at different angles. Rays with a steep angle are partly reflected in the image detector and partially refracted to the process. The angle from which the total reflection starts is called the critical angle. A CCD camera detects a bright field and a dark field corresponding to partly reflected light and totally reflected light. The borderline position between the bright and the dark area correlates with the critical angle which is a function of the refractive index and therefore correlates with the concentration of the solution.
