  • Analytical Experts Blog: New Challenges for Gas Analyzer Designers

    Household waste, industrial emissions, and automobile exhaust are some of the pollutants that can contribute to climate change. They can also make you feel under the weather. In addition, these emissions contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. Due to the threat of these environmental issues, countries around the world have enacted strict legislation aimed at reducing emissions. In the U.S., the EPA…
  • Tank Gauging Blog: Enhance Safety by Upgrading to Modern Instrumentation

    Chemical plants are hazardous environments that rely on safety instrumented systems (SIS) to protect personnel, assets and the surrounding area. Perhaps surprisingly, decades-old SIS are still in use at many plants, with organizations adopting an attitude of ‘if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it’. However, in a Chemical Processing article, ‘ Upgrade Your Safety Instrumented Systems ’, Emerson’s global functional safety manager…
  • Level Blog: Accurate, Reliable Measurements for Saturated Steam Measurements

    As summer winds down here in the Northern hemisphere, many manufacturers and producers must contend with the effects of falling ambient temperatures on their production processes. For some level measurements, pressure diaphragms, wet legs, and any liquid line can suffer damage when process fluids solidify and expand, potentially causing unplanned unit or plant shutdowns. For example, in last year’s big freeze event in…
