Open Channel Flow Monitoring

Open channel flow monitoring is a method of measuring water flow rates in irrigation channels, streams, and storm water systems. It’s also used in wastewater processing for monitoring the effluent discharge. In most applications for open channel flow, weirs and flumes are used. For those of us not familiar, weirs and flumes concentrate the flow into a known cross sectional area, relating an accurate level reading to an accurate flow rate. The height of the water in the channel, going over the weir or flume, is directly proportional to the flow rate. Continue reading “Open Channel Flow Monitoring”

Manufacturing an Economic Dust Filtration System

Solenoid Valve Enclosure with Timer, Series SVT

Many customers have come to the Dwyer team asking: “What can Dwyer do to help with lean manufacturing?In this article, we will discuss the Dwyer® Series SVT solenoid valve and timer enclosure and its cost savings advantages in a dust filtration system.

The Series SVT combines two integral components in a dust filtration system into one package: solenoid valves and a timer controller. In a dust filtration system, solenoid valves are used to send air through a pulse valve, such as our Series RDCS.  Pulse valves release a quick spurt of air into a dirty dust cartridge filter, which, in turn, releases the dust from the filter. The timer portion of the dust filtration system is the brains of the operation controlling when the solenoids fire, the amount of time the solenoids are open, and when the next solenoid in the sequence fires.

Downdraft Table Applications

Downdraft Table Application

There are many manufacturing processes that require human operators to perform tasks, which can create hazardous levels of particulate, fumes, gases, vapors, and mists. A few of these processes include: welding, sanding, grinding, brazing, laser cutting, tempering, and quenching. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has regulatory requirements to reduce worker’s exposure to these hazards, which can cause respiratory and other health issues. Downdraft tables are workstations designed to better protect the operators who perform these tasks, in a bench top setting, by removing the hazardous material that laden the air from the worker’s breathing zone.
