16 Visuals to Increase Safety and Efficiency

16 Visuals to Increase Safety and Efficiency

Imagine a world without any sign and think about how quickly we would get lost, how chaotic traffic would become, how much time you would lose, and how many accidents  this would result in. Signalling makes safe and efficient, also in the workplace.

Did you know 75% of knowledge is gained through visuals?

Signalling can help you to:

• prevent accidents

• gain time

• be compliant with legislation

• quickly follow up on safety audits

• match industry best practices

• visualise machine operating instructions

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities. 

Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
This includes:
-    small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
-    improved serialisation...

Rotary Pressure Valve

Rotary Pressure Valve

The Rotary Pressure Valve is a variant of the Rotary Valve and is designed for process applications where the treated product is particularly aggressive, not compatible with the material used for the construction of the sealing element (seal) in the presence of solvents during the cycle or during the wash cycle (CIP / SIP).

The valve is made of a monoblock body where the interceptor element is held in place thanks to suitable plastic material holders (FDA), which keep the rotor centered on the valve body.

This variant is not different from the main features of the Rotary Valve as,...

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more clearly...

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

FLIR Systems announces new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, developed in conjunction with Providence Photonics, that was designed to work exclusively with its GF-Series cameras. qOGI represents a major advance in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

Using a Providence Photonics’ QL320™ in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 camera, surveyors can now measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.

Should solenoid valves be classed as more than a commodity item?

Should solenoid valves be classed as more than a commodity item?

There are those who view solenoid valves as merely a commodity, and there are those who are interested in long-term reliability. The overall reliability of any system in a process plant cannot exceed the reliability of the final link in the control chain.

Unfortunately, however, low cost and high reliability may be divergent ambitions when it comes to valves. Engineers seeking operational longevity and high-quality performance should think beyond initial purchase price, as any other strategy is likely to cost far more in the long run. 

Driven by cost pressures,...
