Reduce Costs And Improve Emissions Compliance
By Fox Thermal Instruments, Inc.

Although manufacturers have made significant improvements in process heating efficiency, the total energy use for process heating is expected to increase. Accurate, repeatable measurement of air and process gases with thermal mass flow meters is key to improving accountability and energy-management processes.

Leveraging IIoT Technologies To Reduce Unplanned Downtime
By David Clayton and Paula Hollywood

At ARC Advisory Group’s 20th Annual Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida, Shawn Anderson, senior research specialist for Fisher Valves, a division of Emerson Process Management, gave a presentation on how the company is leveraging the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to help end users reduce valve-related unplanned downtime.

Understanding Cooled vs. Uncooled Optical Gas Imaging
By Craig O'Neill and Ron Lucier

Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras have traditionally been designed with cooled IR detectors that offer several advantages over uncooled detectors, but often have higher costs. However, advancements in uncooled technologies have allowed OGI cameras manufacturers like FLIR to design and develop lower-cost solutions to OGI industries. This article presents the advantages and disadvantages of cooled versus uncooled cameras and detectors in optical gas imaging applications.
