New, Fast Boiling Point Process Analyser to Debut in California

Bartec Benke recently displayed their new rapiDist-4 Analyser at the ISA Analysis Division’s 62nd Annual Meeting in Pasadena last April. This analyser’s launch is expected to be very well received both in Pasadena and across the globe.

The rapiDist-4 offers rapid, reliable and accurate boiling point measurements to allow for fast process control of atmospheric measurements, distillation columns and blending processes for all types of middle distillates and feedstock for petrochemical processing (naphtha), jet fuels, fuel oils, diesel fuels and similar petroleum products and liquid hydrocarbons.

The rapiDist-4 is capable of taking measurements from IBP to FBP, programming the analyser is relatively simple and the results will correlate with ASTM D86. rapiDist-4 offers

an ASTM D86 conform validation, which is optional. The cycle time is only 10 to 15 minutes (for diesel 10 minutes). The core components of this unit, such as the dosing unit, vaporiser, condenser and receiver, also meet the design specifi cations set out by ASTM D86.

The analyser incorporates integrated diagnostic and maintenance features, which include an automatic decoking devise and remote access. rapiDist-4 also features a non-contact and very robust optical level measurement for the dosing and receiver unit.

The highly robust rapiDist-4 is certifi ed to operate in hazardous areas under ATEX, IECEx, CSA C/US, TRCU, among others on request.

Liquid Analyser With HART Communications Supports Large Distributed Control Systems Designed to support highly automated large

industrial processes and plants, the modular S80-T80 Analyser System from Electro- Chemical Devices provides a wide range of precise liquid analytical measurements via HART communications for simple direct connection with popular distributed control systems.

ECD’s HART compatible T80 Universal Transmitter is a single-channel, loop- powered device designed for the continuous measurement of pH, ORP, pION, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, conductivity or resistivity in a general purpose industrial environment. The versatile T80 Transmitter also is available with a choice of 4 to 20 output, Modbus RTU, Ethernet (with Modbus TCP), SDI-12 serial communication and PROFIBUS PA output.

With over 30 million supported fi eld instruments installed worldwide, HART’s digital technology offers a reliable, long-term solution for leveraging the benefi ts of intelligent devices such as ECD’s S80-T80 Analyser System. HART is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across the 4-20mA analog current loops that connect the vast majority of fi eld instruments with distributed control systems.

More than a communication protocol, HART technology allows process plants to access a wealth of digital process, maintenance and diagnostic information. This information includes the type of liquid analytical data provided by the ECD S80-T80 Analyser, which is especially valuable for process operations and equipment maintenance data.

The T80 Transmitter digitally communicates with any ECD S80 Intelligent Sensor, automatically confi guring the transmitter’s menus and display screens to the sensor’s measured parameter. The same T80 Transmitter can be used for any of the measurements, i.e. plug an S80 conductivity sensor into a T80 pH Transmitter and it will automatically reconfi gure into a conductivity transmitter. There is no longer any need to inventory multiple instrument types, one T80 Transmitter will automatically confi gure to any of the listed measurements.

The highly intelligent and versatile S80 Sensor product line is designed for precise liquid analytical measurement of multiple parameters including pH, ORP, DO, pION, turbidity, conductivity or resistivity. The type of sensor, its identity and serial number are stored in the sensor’s memory along with calibration registers.

The S80 Sensors are calibrated at the factory so they are ready to use when connected to ECD’s T80 Transmitter. The Model S80 Sensors are waterproof and submersible with all internal components epoxy encapsulated inside their 0.75-inch housing. They are available in a variety of packages designed for benign to rugged applications under high temperatures and in corrosive media.

The S80 Sensors come in immersion or insertion package confi gurations that are designed with a 0.75-inch MNPT compression fi tting as the process connection. This design employs a variable insertion length to accommodate installation in pipe tees, fl ow cells or through tank walls. The retractable confi guration is designed with a 1-inch MNPT ball valve, a 1-x-0.75 inch reducer and a 0.75 inch MNPT compression fi tting for the process connection.

Harness the Power of Portability in Industrial Inspections

Olympus’ EPOCH 6LT ultrasonic fl aw detector provides fast and precise industrial inspections on a rugged, portable device. Designed for challenging conditions, such as rope-access inspections, the EPOCH 6LT enables simple, single-handed operation to carry out inspections safely and accurately.

Optimised for inspections in hard-to-reach areas, such as bridges, wind turbines, offshore platforms and pipelines, the EPOCH 6LT is a compact, intuitive ultrasonic fl aw detector. It enables single-handed operation with all the controls readily accessible for quick adjustments – even when wearing gloves. Well suited for rope-access technicians, the EPOCH 6LT conveniently attaches to a harness or leg, keeping the operator’s hands free to carry out ultrasonic scans with safety and comfort.

To guarantee durability and maximise uptime, the EPOCH 6LT is drop tested and carries an IP65/67 rating for resistance against moisture and dust. Its clear 640 × 480 pixel display screen features an outdoor mode to make it easy to see A-scans when lighting conditions are challenging.

The interface of the EPOCH 6LT fl aw detector is simple and straightforward so technicians can spend more time on their inspection and less time adjusting the instrument. Despite the instrument’s small size, it has the features and functions to meet the requirements of nearly any conventional ultrasonic inspection application; it has all the core functions of the popular EPOCH 650 fl aw detector and it fully complies with the EN12668-1:2010 standard.

The intuitive software of the EPOCH 6LT consists of a two-screen, icon-based interface with a rotating display to make navigation quick and easy. Optional corrosion software enables a dual functionality, combining the ease of use of a thickness gage with the fl exibility of a fl aw detector. To speed up the setup, center-pin transducer ID recognises which transducer is connected and automatically provides the correct settings. Optional wifi connectivity facilitates on-the-go data backups, setup downloads and access to cloud applications such as the Olympus Scientifi c Cloud.

Olympus’ compact EPOCH 6LT ultrasonic fl aw detector enables safe inspections in inaccessible locations without compromising on inspection capabilities. With excellent suitability for inspection of bridges, wind turbines, offshore platforms and pipelines, the EPOCH 6LT is a versatile solution, harnessing the power of portability in industrial inspection.
