Here's why wastewater treatment facilities turn to anaerobic digestion for energy uses
Biogas industry trends and flow measurement technology
Many U.S. wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are beginning to use anaerobic digesters to produce biogas that can be used in their combined heat and power plants to generate electricity and heat. In addition, the plants are selling the biogas into the gas grid. The growing interest in biogas has led to more attention paid to measuring biogas flow and composition, because proper gas engine operationsdepends upon use of biogas with the right methane (CH4) content. New ultrasonic technology, including the OPTISONIC 7300, developed by Krohne, Inc., is being developed to provide the kind of reliable and accurate flow measurement needed to advance this important strategic energy source.

How to use differential pressure sensors to measure hydrostatic levels
Differential pressure transmitters are reliable, cost effective instruments to measure the hydrostatic level of a liquid in a vented or sealed tank.
Differential pressure sensors are cost effective and reliable instruments that measure the hydrostatic level of a liquid in a vented or sealed tank, and it's important to understand exactly how to utilize them to their full potential.
For a vented tank, the pressure transmitter should be mounted to the bottom. Typically, the transmitter will be threaded into the outlet line of the tank, a side bung or flange. Since a pressure transmitter provides a linear output signal, such as a 4 to 20mA signal from zero pressure to the full scale pressure, the level can be monitored based on the liquid density and the height of the tank.
For Example: Density of water at 4°C = 1 Height of tank = 35 feet = 420 inches 27.68…

Pressure In Hazardous Areas
In controlled environments, pressure measurement is relatively straightforward. However, in the mobile equipment industry and other hazardous areas, application variables can have a huge impact on pressure measurement accuracy. The consequences for pressure measurement errors can be widespread and potentially dangerous. Fortunately, by anticipating and accommodating challenges in pressure measurement common in hazardous environments, operators and engineers can prevent misreadings, damage to equipment or personnel injury, and costly downtime. This whitepaper addresses several common and sometimes difficult application challenges that need to be considered when selecting a pressure sensor, as well as some…

Quickly Test Load Cell Systems
BLH Nobel Introduced a System That Quickly and Easily Checks Weighing Systems for Wiring and Mechanical Faults
Load cell weighing systems solve some of the knottiest problems in batch and level control by directly measuring masses of solids and liquids as they're accumulated, dispensed or conveyed. But the load cells must be installed and wired properly, and the load structure must be engineered and constructed correctly to distribute the measured load as axial forces on the cells. What appear on the surface to be simple wiring and construction tasks have caused more than a few problems during commissioning and maintenance due to miswired or poorly made connections, distorted or binding structures, incorrectly installed load cells or rigid connections to adjacent equipment.
Such problems often are not found until a new installation is being…

With increasingly connected systems, SIS is becoming prone to more cyber risks and vulnerabilities.
The SIS market is growing, and growing fast. By 2020, it is expected to be worth $3.76 billion in the U.S. alone. However, with this increased connectivity, the numerous cyber risks associated with these systems are coming with them. To prevent severe incidents at plants that could impact human life, assets and production, the challenges linked to these systems must be met with substantial protection.

The gas feed to the building was shut off and firefighters evacuated everyone from the building, but shingles continued to fall and the roof continued to dip slowly. Firefighters were scrambling to develop a plan in case the roof collapsed completely.
Witnesses say new shingles were loaded on the roof yesterday, in preparation for repairs.The City's chief building official went into the plant shortly after 10 a.m. to take a look at the structure.

Electromagnetically transparent GRP enclosures see spike in demand
Equipment housings to contain wireless process monitoring equipment in outdoor environments are on the rise - here's why.
Intertec is seeing increased customer demand for equipment housings to contain wireless process monitoring equipment in outdoor environments. The company attributes this partly to increased use of industrial wireless sensor network (WSN) technology, but mainly to the growing industry awareness that the glass-reinforced polymer (GRP) composite material it uses for all of its protective enclosures is electromagnetically transparent.
Until recently, process industry take-up of WSN technology has been relatively slow, possibly because competing wireless standards have made systems designers wary of making the wrong choice. However, for mainstream industrial process applications, the field has now narrowed to just two standards –…
