PRODUCTS

  • The SPIRALIFT® screens, washes, transports and dewaters solids entrained in the wastewater flow. This system combines the benefits of two proven technologies into one effective system: the SPIRALIFT screening conveying system and a high-performance TASKMASTER® grinder. The processed solids are washed, ground, dewatered and discharged — ideal for landfill disposal, while organics are left in the flow. Because this unit features TASKMASTER grinding technology, it offers the combined benefits of a rugged, effective grinder with enhanced screw screen performance for a uniquely effective and trouble-free system.

  • Used IMA Zanasi 6 F Capsule Filler, rated up to 6000 capsules/hour, no change parts, capable of producing 00-5 size capsules, with controls and Siemens PLC, 230 volt, 3 phase, serial# 35071, built 2006.

  • Aqualitec's bar screen Screentec is an automatic vertical bar screen specifically designed for headworks, pump stations, lift stations, wet wells and manholes. It protects pumps from rags, wipes, plastics and other solids. It also prevents pumps from clogging up, extends their life cycle and improves the quality of wastewater treatment.

  • The EyeOnWater consumer engagement tool gives utility customers the power to manage their water use through easy-to-understand consumption graphs and configurable leak notifications, providing timely, visual access to their water usage behavior.

  • Corry Micronics offers a 1×256 Blocking RF Switch Matrix designed to provide automatic routing and RF microwave signal conditioning between test equipment and the unit under test (UUT) in an RF/microwave ATE system. 1×256 Blocking RF Switch Matrices are ideal for applications that involve the testing and measurement of multiple RF components.

Instrumentation
The science of measuring and controlling variables is termed instrumentation. As the name suggests, the process involves using a wide variety of instruments. These are classified as any device that can measure amounts that are physically quantifiable. These instruments do not have to be extremely complex in design. For example, the ruler is an instrument to measure distance, and a simple thermometer measures temperature.
Instruments specific to petrochemical processing include platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s), P/I Converters, many types of level meters, chromatographs, and continuous gas analyzers. These instruments are essential to the day to day instrumentation at petrochemical plants, as it is impossible to gauge to the necessary extent by estimation alone. Human error is inevitable, but an instrument can easily be calibrated or replaced.
Now that you understand the definition of and tools used in instrumentation, you should also understand the necessity of it. Temperature and pressure meters serve to ensure that the environment stays safe for both the chemicals being processed and the employees of the plant. Heat is a very well-documented activator in chemical reactions. If the temperature rises to unusual levels, this could spark an undesired chemical reaction that could prove catastrophic. The flow meter must measure how much oil is leaving the refinery, as it is a very volatile substance. Analytical instruments, such as the chromatograph, analyze the chemical make-up of the refined oil. This allows for the opportunity to make sure that the chemical make-up is correct, giving evidence that the process was correctly completed at all stages of refinement.
