Calibration for Crane Scale and Dynamometer Applications

Interface is well-known for excelling at calibration services for load cells. Did you know this service excellence extends to dynamometers and crane scales?

Interface can calibrate dynamometers and crane scales with capacities of 100,000 pounds of force or more. This family of devices is often found in industrial, commercial, energy, military, and aerospace industry applications.

Crane scales are used as overhead weighing solutions ranging from light to heavy capacities and are normally placed in the load string of a crane. The devices provide crane overload protection, as well as information about the handling of bulk material. Some models are equipped with wireless communications to allow monitoring from safe distances at multiple locations.

Selecting Instrumentation For Functional Safety (SIL) Applications

Over the past couple of decades, the process industries have seen many changes when it comes to the design and implementation of emergency shutdown/safety systems. The introduction of several international and regional standards requires a more rigorous approach to the overall safety lifecycle of a system compared to the use of best engineering design practices of the past. As a result, a broader and significant increase in the implementation of these standards has been noted within the industry.

The standards most commonly being referenced by customers are:
• IEC 61511: Functional Safety – Safety Instrumented Systems for the Process Industry Sector
• ANSI/ISA-84.00.01 (IEC 61511 Mod) – Functional Safety: Safety Instrumented Systems for the Process Industry Sector
• IEC 61508: Functional Safety of Electrical, Electronic, Programmable Electronic Safety Related Systems

Beamex introduces a better way for workshop calibration

The new Beamex CENTRiCAL is easy to configure to suit individual requirements while the standard electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection offers electrical safety measures as a standard. Each CENTRiCAL is supplied with accredited calibration certificates to ensure quality and traceability. The Beamex CENTRiCAL is available with superb ergonomics via motorized height control, or as a fixed height bench. A straight bench as well as corner modules are available to meet user needs. A trolley-based design is also available for mobile solutions.

Katronic expands product range with innovative flowmeter for gases

Katronic is very proud to announce its newest development, the KATflow 180 clamp-on flowmeter for gases. The ATEX-approved KATflow 180 takes non-invasive, clamp-on measurement into new areas with the ability to measure gaseous flow at low pressures and even in metal pipes – something that was previously virtually impossible to achieve.
