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:
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
Let’s start with the basics.
What is a pressure regulator?
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.
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.
- 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
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.
I just got my hands on a cellular modem that can stream analog data from a remote site to a SCADA/HMI/PLC/DCS/PAC, send a text message or an email on alarm, or receive a text message that can control a relay output (yes, it’s all secure ! !).
