The Key to Energy Efficiency

“In the real estate industry you always hear this phrase, ‘Location, location, location.’ I think for energy management systems the key is ‘Execution, execution, execution.'”[1]

— Sara Lisauskas, Energy Management Systems: Maximizing Energy Savings

What comes to mind when you think of the phrase “energy efficient?” Perhaps you think of LED light bulbs, electric cars, Energy Star appliances, or LEED-certified buildings. But energy efficiency isn’t limited to “green” products or certifications. Continue reading “The Key to Energy Efficiency”

How to Set Up and Use the Model TBU-00 Temperature Transmitter

Temperature Transmitter, Model TBU-00

The Model TBU-00 Temperature Transmitter is a high precision temperature transmitter. Its small size and weight allow it to easily mount in most temperature sensor instrument enclosures. The TBU-00 is ideal for process applications where a 4 to 20 mA signal is required, such as: food processing equipment, boiler equipment, and refrigeration equipment. Continue reading “How to Set Up and Use the Model TBU-00 Temperature Transmitter”

Thermal Dispersion Flow Switches

Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch, Series TDFS2

Dwyer Instruments, Inc. offers several flow measuring products that use a thermal sensing element.

Thermal dispersion flow sensors use a temperature element that is heated up beyond the media temperature. Based on calorimetry, the flow moving past the sensor will have a cooling effect that is directly proportional to the flow velocity. The heat is convected from the heated probe surface to the boundary layer of the fluid flowing over the heated surface. Continue reading “Thermal Dispersion Flow Switches”
