AUMA Cloud and Cloud Assistant App

Image
Intelligent Asset Management for Electric Actuators Digitization is at the forefront in all industrial sectors, irrespective of the market – the water industry, energy generation, oil & gas industry, and the process industry. In the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) age, recording, evaluation, and networking of comprehensive information provided by field devices are of growing importance. Failure or unscheduled plant standstill possibly involves high costs. Hence, predictive condition-based maintenance and efficient Asset Management of field devices are core factors to prevent system failures and maximize plant availability. Intensifying automation requirements – often paired with less operational staff on site – call for new concepts to ensure predictive condition-based maintenance and successful Asset Management. Both AUMA Cloud and AUMA Assistant App are premium, innovative tools for networking people, devices, and data. Tri-State Technical Sales 610-647-5700 https://tristat

Electric Heat Tracing Installation Guide

Image
The product used to maintain or increase pipes and vessels' temperature electrically is known as electric heat tracing, heat tape, or surface heating. Electric heat tracing takes the form of an electrical heating element that runs along the pipe's length in close physical contact. The pipe is usually covered with thermal insulation to maintain thermal losses from the line. The heat produced by the element then maintains the pipe temperature. Heat tracing protects pipes from freezing, maintains a constant temperature of flow in hot water systems, or maintain piping process temperatures needed to transport solid substances at ambient temperatures. Electric heat tracing is an alternative to steam trace heating, where steam is unavailable or unwanted, is electric trace heating cables. The demands placed on heat tracing systems vary based on the design parameters specific to each application. To meet these needs, Thermon manufactures a wide variety of electric heating cables and c

Positioners for Industrial Valves and Dampers

Image
The purpose of valve positioners is to control a butterfly, ball, gate, or globe valve's position such that a given process will achieve specific desired flow parameters. Positioners also control damper opening and closing. They perform this by analyzing the error between the desired valve position (as determined by the controller) and the actual valve position. Specialized sensors mounted on the valve stem or actuator shaft compare the magnitude of error between the control system setpoint and the real-time process value. The positioner's job is to provide a corrective output that is then sent electrically or pneumatically to a valve actuator. The corrective out moves the valve in a more-open or more-closed direction until the achievement of setpoint.  Positioners play a vital role as a control valve accessory and the interface between the control system and valves in ensuring the process loop's performance. The valve positioner manages the percent of the valves' ope
