Thermowells are traditionally a circular cylinder installed into the piping to protect the temperature sensors from the flow. From an Emerson whitepaper, Thermowell Calculations: As a process fluid passes around the thermowell, low pressure vortices are created on the downstream side in laminar, turbulent, and transitional flow. The combination of stresses, generated by the static […]

Tools that advance collaborative efforts among co-workers, especially for maintenance teams in manufacturing operations, help increase reliable and efficient operations. Here’s an under 3-minute YouTube video example, Managing Device Configurations with AMS Trex, demonstrated by Emerson’s Stephen West. In it, he shows how the AMS Trex Device Communicator helps maintenance teams efficiently manage the configurations […]
