The Making of a Market Leader – The Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage

The name of the Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gage was derived from the terms Magnet and the Helix. The Magnehelic® Gage is a simple yet elegant solution, which solved a problem faced by customers who wanted to measure low differential pressure. Historically the industry measured differential

pressure with a liquid filled manometer. The manometer worked on the principle that the difference in air pressure is measured as a function of gravity and liquid density. The challenge, however, was that the liquid in the manometer evaporates over time. This means that individuals would need to regularly add more liquid and re-calibrate the device.

Leachate, A Growing Market for Level Control

For decades, the municipal Water and Wastewater Market has been a focal point for many product lines associated with the Mercoid brand.  With Dwyer’s ever expanding product lines we have been able to offer a diverse array of instruments to monitor and control pressure, level, flow, humidity, and data logging.  A growing application with similar demands is landfill leachate pumping, where Mercoid has been able to successfully implement several products.

How to Maintain Your Dust Collector

PowderBulkSolid_01_dustcollectorThe inception of the dust collector has allowed companies to effectively capture airborne particulate from an air stream. This has become more important for several reasons. First, containing particulate — toxic or not — is necessary to provide a healthy and clean work environment. Second, increasing local and global awareness of air pollution, containment and the process dust in industrial applications has emphasized the importance of dust collectors. Finally, expanding regulations have pressured companies to properly design, install, operate and maintain dust collection equipment. Continue reading “How to Maintain Your Dust Collector”
