Webinar Recap: Load Cell Basics

In case you missed May’s webinar with Sartorius Intec on load cells, we’ve put together some of the key points:

Let’s start with the most common weighing element: the strain gauge load cell.

Strain Gauge.pngA strain gauge load cell can be found in bench platforms, floor scales, and in some cases, tank and hopper systems. It is the most common load cell used in the weighing industry.

The most common electrical strain gauges are thin, rectangular strips of foil with maze-like wiring patterns on them, leading to a couple of electrical cables. You stick the foil onto the material you are measuring and wire the cables up to your computer or monitoring circuit.

Webinar Recap: Back Pressure Regulators 101

In case you missed last month’s webinar with Jordan Valve on back pressure regulators, we’ve put together some of the key points.

The Control Loop: The Control Loop

Sensing element: measures the process variable being controlled, and send an output to the controlling instrument

Controlling instrument: calculates the error (difference in signal from sensing element and the desired setpoint) and sends corrective signal to final control element

Final control element: varies the flow to change the controlled variable to the required setpoint

Regulators 101: Pressure vs. Back Pressure

Let’s start with the basics.

What is a pressure regulator?How a Pressure Regulator Works

A pressure regulator is a normally-open valve used to regulate or reduce undesirable, high upstream pressure. The pressure regulator must be installed at the START of a system, before any pressure-sensitive equipment.

The valve is held open by springs, and a screw that sets spring force. When outlet pressure exceeds the setpoint, the valve will close. When the valve closes, pressure is reduced downstream.

Belt Scales 101: Webinar Recap

In case you missed last week’s webinar on belt scales, we’ve put together some of the key points:

Conveyor Considerations: Use strings to align the scale with the idlers on each side of the weigh bridge.Idler.png

  • Each idler should be parallel to the idler next to it.
  • The center of each idler should be in line with the idler next to it.
  • Each idler should not be higher or lower than the idler next to it.
  • Minimum of 2, preferred 3, idlers on each side of the weigh bridge

How to install magnetic flowmeters in less than optimum conditions

Not all processes have optimal piping configurations. Learn how to identify alternative solutions for processes inhibited by piping constraints.

Siemens is hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, October 21 at 2pm EST.

In this 1-hour webinar, Siemens specialists will show you how the flowmeter can be installed and how this versatile instrument can be used to meet your application needs. They will be discussing the installation guidelines for process piping that can enhance your flowmeters’ performance.
