Ways to Prevent Pressure Gauge Failure

Author: Wika There are many products and services that can prevent pressure gauges from failing. Gauge audits and Best Practice Instrument Reviews are the best first line of defense. These reviews and audits will tell you which instruments are properly functioning and which ones should be replaced. There is a review of the gauges currently installed, gauges installed demonstrating unwanted

Installing the Wrong Pressure Transmitter Can be Dangerous

Author: Wika Application Notes Whether it’s protecting human life, protection of expensive equipment, or meeting installation codes, safety is the number one concern when working in hazardous areas when there is a concentration of flammable gases, vapors or dust. Many pressure transmitter users in petrochemical, chemical, or refineries are unaware of the potential dangers of selecting the wrong pressure transmitter

Safety Critical Protection Systems: Implementing Pressure Sensor Signal Redundancy to Lower Costs

Written By: Jürgen Reiser, Product Manager, Electronic Pressure Measurement, WIKA Alexander Wiegand GmbH & Co. KG, Germany and Martin Armson, Director of Electronic Pressure Measurement, WIKA Instrument Corporation, USA In today’s world, safe working conditions are increasingly mandated by legislation and voluntary codes of practice. Automated load monitoring systems using pressure transmitters are becoming instrumental in creating safe working environments.

Differential Pressure: A Difference You Can See

From:WIKA Differential pressure gauges are often found in industrial process systems and yet, they are easily overlooked or misunderstood. In fact, a differential pressure gauge can often times provide multiple solutions to everyday problems. Differential pressure (DP or ∆p) is the difference between two applied pressures. For example, the pressure at point “A” equals 100psi and the pressure at point

Eliminate Frustrations When Selecting Process Gauges

From: Wika Application Notes Pressure gauges often leave maintenance professionals asking a number of questions: Will the pressure gauge be durable enough to withstand my extreme operating environments?  Do I liquid fill the pressure gauge or should I leave it dry?  How long will the pressure gauge last?  Can I be assured that the pressure gauge will give me accurate

Why a compressor room needs to stay cool!

Author: David J. Connaughton Blog: Compressed Air the Fourth Utility Compressors are often put into small rooms to reduce noise. Unfortunately, putting a compressor inside a small room creates problems. One of these problems is heat. Compressors create a lot of heat from the compression of the air. This heat is usually expelled into the room via a fan cooled

Calibration and Measurement Uncertainty

From: Endress+Hauser Reading values from dials and taking measurement with devices is fairly standard procedure in any process. What we frequently neglect to consider is the fact that what we read does not necessarily match reality  For various reasons, any measure is affected by errors. An experimental measurement can only be correctly interpreted if it is associated with an estimate
