Let’s start the week with a nice “how-to” video, How to Configure the Rosemount 3051S Plugged Impulse Line Diagnostic. Emerson’s Megan Wiens shows how to configure the Rosemount 3051S Plugged Impulse Line Diagnostic to help prevent this plugging condition which can lead to reduced measurement accuracy, plant efficiency, and product quality. Megan opens the video […]

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 […]

Walk around most any industrial process manufacturing or production process and you’ll likely see pressure gauges providing feedback to operators who walk by. According to the Pressure Gauge entry in Encyclopedia.com, this technology: …was invented by French industrialist Eugene Bourdon in 1849. It utilizes a curved tube design as the pressure sensing element. A less […]

If you work with pressure measurement instrumentation, you may have heard the phrases drip rings, flushing rings or calibration rings. These are used for pressure and differential pressure (DP) level measurement devices where diaphragm seals are used. I bring this up because I received an email recently that asked about these [edited and paraphrased to […]

One only has to do a Google image search on pharmaceutical equipment to see the clean, sanitary conditions required for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical processing. The measurement instrumentation must be able to handle the tough conditions when cleaning and sanitization operations are performed. In a Pharmaceutical Manufacturing article, Ensuring Batch-to-Batch Repeatability in Sanitary Processes, Emerson’s Kyle […]
