ISO 20560: A Global Standard to Identify Pipe Contents!

ISO 20560: A Global Standard to Identify Pipe Contents!

A new, global ISO 20560 norm is now available to standardise the identification of hidden and often hazardous pipe contents in factories and facilities. Compliant pipe markers are already offered by Brady Corporation

Clear pipe identification for increased safety In response to the growing international mobility of labour, the ISO 20560 norm aims to increase workplace safety and to reduce risks and training costs for international personnel on country-specific pipe marking standards. The new, international pipe marking norm uses globally accepted GHS/CLP icons on a highly visible yellow area to visually signal...

Cost-Effective Isolated Miniature GO Sensors

Cost-Effective Isolated Miniature GO Sensors

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor from LEM International with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 
  
• 10-30 A nominal current
• Better...

How Haydon Kerk Pittman supports XENEX in its fight against the COVID-19 virus

How Haydon Kerk Pittman supports XENEX in its fight against the COVID-19 virus

Haydon Kerk has developed a Dual Guide Rail specifically for the Xenex Robot application. The Xenex robot uses ultraviolet light to disinfect and sanitize the surrounding area.

The Haydon Kerk Dual Guide mobilizes the UV light as it ascends and descends out of the robot. A field-friendly solution for Xenex’s disinfecting robot – helping hospitals reduce infection rates by 50-100% and contributing to the fight against COVID-19.

High Performance Meter for Measuring Low Flows

High Performance Meter for Measuring Low Flows

The Atrato range of ultrasonic flowmeters from Titan Enterprises is capable of measuring very low flows, down to 2 ml/min., with excellent accuracy. The ultrasonic sound waves travelling down the Atrato flow tube are symmetrical, and as a result, any changes in a fluid’s velocity profile across the pipe diameter will be averaged out by the signal as it passes from the transmitter to the receiver.

As a result, the Atrato gives unmatched performance when metering low flows whether laminar or turbulent, and is also largely immune...

Ultra Clean Flow Monitoring

Ultra Clean Flow Monitoring

Production processes in the pharmaceutical, medical and semiconductor industries often require flow measurement devices able to cope with low flow rates and construction from ultra-pure materials so as to maintain hygienic, sterile and sanitary conditions.

The single clean bore measurement tube construction of the Metraflow ultrasonic flowmeter makes it ideal for almost any application where cleanliness is important.

Made from high performance Perfluoroalkoxy Alkane (PFA) polymer, the Metraflow ultrasonic flowmeter from Titan Enterprises...

Pneumatic Leveling Mounts for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

Pneumatic Leveling Mounts for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

The song ‘Good Vibrations’ by the Beach Boys is a hit. The opposite of this are shocks, oscillations and vibrations that ruin the listening experience. The engineers at the electronics company BaiRuiKe Technology Co., Ltd. know how critical hi-fi purists are. In Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, they develop and manufacture high-quality tube amplifiers and the corresponding components.

In order to demonstrate the performance of the audio products to visitors from all over the world, they are received in a specially designed demonstration room. When...

How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

Hydraulic applications rely on fluid power or the use of pressurized fluids to generate, control and transmit power. These types of systems can produce high power and high forces in small volumes and have long service lives. Fluid power is used in a wide range of industrial applications including self-propelled scissor lifts, injection molding, machine tools, steel making and metal extraction, paper industries, textile machinery, disability lifts and security and parking barriers.
 
Pressure sensors are critical components in these systems, where they are used...
