Benefits of Using Current Switches/Transformers
Motors are used for numerous industrial processes, be it moving air with a fan, pumping water with a pump, or driving a mechanical process. It is important to know when motors are not operating properly or require maintenance.
Many installations rely on a sensor or instrument used for the primary process, such as the use of a pressure transmitter to verify system pressure in a duct or the use of a flow transmitter to verify flow in a pipe. When errors or loss of pressure/flow are indicated, maintenance personnel may be dispatched to remedy the issue. However, this method does not indicate the root cause of an issue. Relying solely on primary process instrumentation opens the door to an unforeseen, possibly catastrophic situation. Continue reading “Benefits of Using Current Switches/Transformers”

The Intricacy of Proper Instrumentation in Cleaning Produced Water
The cleaning of produced water during oil and gas production and exploration is a crucial, although costly endeavor. In the process of bringing oil and gas up to the surface from a well, several byproducts are also produced. Water is the largest of these byproducts by volume, with 882 billion gallons produced per day. This produced water contains a variety of other compounds and substances, including organic and inorganic compounds, grease, bacteria, and dissolved solids such as iron.
