Noshok announces new transmitters for the Food & Beverage Industry

NOSHOK announces the availability of our new 20, 25 and 30 Series Intelligent Pressure and Level Transmitters, uniquely designed to address the specific requirements of the food and beverage industry. These transmitters are ideal for hygienic applications and harsh, aggressive ambient conditions.
NOSHOK 20, 25 and 30 Series Transmitters feature a superior design that positions the pressure and temperature sensors directly behind the diaphragm, which minimizes fill fluid and allows the use of a smaller diaphragm. This provides active temperature compensation at the point of measurement to minimize temperature and position error.
Turndown ratios up to 10:1 allow greater rangeability, minimizing inventory requirements. Accuracies are based on percent of adjusted span, not full scale range.
Constructed of all polished Stainless Steel, NOSHOK’s new intelligent transmitters feature programming via a standard onboard display with no pressure source required, and are also available with Hart® protocol. These transmitters have a 360° rotatable display for flexibility and readability in multiple mounting positions.
The new 20, 25 and 30 Series NOSHOK Transmitters meet 3A requirements.

How to Choose the Right Flow Meter – 6 Tips

Having a choice of selecting a suitable flowmeter is a good thing, but it can be rather overwhelming if there are a plenty of choices in front of you. The correct flowmeter choice is / can be critical for efficient operation, whether it is a basic household measurement or a critical plant measurement.
Therefore, it is critical to consider some basic things before you choose the flow meter for your business. Besides choosing the right flow meter, it must also be remembered that flow meter calibration is also an important part of the operation. Without calibration, you can’t be assured of accurate results even if you have the best flow meter in your facility. Lets suggest to look at 6 different things you will need to consider before choosing a flow meter:
1. Type
There are many different types of flow meters for applications in liquid or gas. Understanding your needs and choosing the one that will suit your unique purpose and applications. Consider the properties of the fluid that runs through the flow meter. If you consider the gas or liquid that the flow meter would have to measure, you will be able to find out how it would behave when flowing through a pipe. After this, you can narrow down the type of flowmeter that suits the application the best.
2. Use
Consider the temperatures that are needed, its turndown ratio, type of liquid or gas that is measuring the rate of, is the fluid clean or has it particles in the fluid.
3. Chemical Compatibility
Ensure that the material of the flow meter is compatible with the chemical properties of the fluid or gas that would be used through the flow meter.
4. Price
The price of the flowmeter usually plays a huge role in determining your purchase choices. While opting for a more economical device might seem tempting to initially save money, it could end up being far more expensive further down the track. Focusing on short-term savings isn’t always a good idea as a cheaper flow meter won’t assure quality or durability. On the contrary, a higher priced flow meter will generally be more cost-effective in the long run. Moreover, it will rank higher on quality, durability and its support.
5. Durability
Consider the life expectancy of the flowmeter you are purchasing too. Find out how long it would typically last and ask the supplier about its mtbf regarding the type of application you need it for. Evaluating the total life cost and longevity of the flow meter may have an impact on the price, however, it would be worth it.
6. Installation
Consider the installation of the flow meter before buying it. Check exactly where and how it will be installed as it can significantly affect the efficiency and accuracy of the flow meter.
Think about the type of meters and if would be affected by any obstructions in the pipeline such as any kind of joints, bends or valves that could cause disturbances in the flow.
Installing the device correctly in a suitable application will ensure more accurate results as well as save you money.
AMS can assist you with the correct selection of a flowmeter, as the company represents some of the major flowmeter manufacturers in the world.

ECD Optical Dissolved Oxygen Analyser – Triton® DO82

The ECD Triton DO82 Optical Dissolved Oxygen Analyser is a complete solution for long term dissolved oxygen measurements in waste water aeration basins, aquaculture and all types of environmental water. The DO82 optical dissolved oxygen sensor uses fluorescence quenching to determine the oxygen concentration in water. The use of this optical method minimises maintenance, increases reliability and improves the long term accuracy of the measurement in demanding municipal waste water and industrial wastewater applications. The DO82 Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor is unaffected by changes in the flow, pH or conductivity of the sample and there is no need to replace or service membranes, electrolytes or anode/cathode assemblies required for other sensors.

Azbil Natural Gas Calorimeter GasCVDModel: CVM***

The GasCVD Natural Gas Calorimeter facilitates smooth, simple, and accurate trade transactions involving natural gas, a resource of increasing global importance. This calorimeter conforms to international measurement standards. Its small size, light weight, high accuracy, and low price are impossible for conventional gas calorimeters and gas chromatographs to match. This gas calorimeter is also ideal for LNG calorific adjustment lines and applications that improve combustion efficiency for gas turbines and furnaces.
The price of the Natural Gas Calorimeter is an amazingly low one-fifth to one-twentieth that of ordinary gas chromatographs. It also offers a quick response of 5 seconds at the fastest, which is over 30 times that of ordinary gas chromatographs. A high accuracy of ±1.0 % of the reading is ensured even with component fluctuations in the measured gas. Accuracy is ensured even in cases where an inert gas such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide is intermixed. (There are restrictions on the components in the measured gas.) Also, there is no need of a sample gas for calibration, as is required for conventional equipment.

AMS News

AMS and AMS Water Metering exhibited at Ozwater19 this month and it proved to be a very successful exhibition for both companies with many enquiries received. These enquiries will be followed up shortly to ensure that the people are fully informed of our capabilities.

The second Beamex User Group meeting that was held in march proved that it is important to ensure that customers are fully aware of the capabilities of the Beamex product lines. Many of the attendees found new ways of using the hardware and software and this resulted in them purchasing additional hardware or software to enhance their usage or making better use of the existing equipment. AMS are now already in the process of planning for the 3rd Beamex User Group meeting in 2020.

We also would like to welcome a new employee in our Sydney office with William Oey joining AMS this month. We wish William a long and rewarding career at AMS.

In the picture here is our NSW Sales Manager, Mike Elliott, showing our wares at the IICA Tech Expo in Newcastle.

The AMS subsidiary company, AMS Water Metering, has received NMI approval for their range of Qalcosonic W1 Ultrasonic Smart Water meters, which now opens up the Australian market for this exciting product.
