    The Latest Advancement in Instrument Manifold Technology

    Instrument manifolds play an important role in efficient plant operation because of their ability to shut-off or equalize pressure. But traditional manifolds are often plagued with reliability issues that can make them difficult to operate, pose potential safety risks, or degrade in quality over time. Emerson has redesigned the traditional manifold with the user in mind. Available in both Coplanar and in-line styles...

    Prevent 4 Common Pressure Gauge Failures and Safety Risks

    Mechanical pressure gauges could be costing your plant more than you think. Traditional Bourdon tube pressure gauges rely on an elastic tube that deforms in response to pressure changes. The following process environments can cause mechanical components to fail or Bourdon tubes to break, resulting in inaccurate readings, downtime, and potential safety issues. Extreme Temperatures: Hot processes and high ambient temperatures...

    Diagnosing Wiring Issues in Control and Safety Applications

    Control systems rely on accurate measurements coming in from the instrumentation in the process that measures pressures, temperatures, levels, flows and more. For wired instrumentation, it’s not only the accuracy of the measurement device itself, but the impact of the wiring path between it and the terminations into the control system that determines the signal’s accuracy. This path can include terminations at the instrument...
