Through-Flame Thermal Cameras Can Take the Heat
By Paul Czerepuszko, FLIR Systems, Inc - Optical Gas Imaging

Many types of heating operations require a fast, noncontact method for gathering qualitative and quantitative information to prevent or minimize downtime. A through-flame thermal camera offers thermal and visual imaging capabilities for seeing conditions invisible to the naked eye while in context to a visible world. This application note discusses how through-flame imaging works and how to use these cameras to detect most equipment problems during heating operation — and at an early stage — so that failures can be prevented.

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

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.

Thermal Flow Meters Help With Combustion Process Optimization
By Fox Thermal Instruments, Inc.

Accurate, repeatable measurement of air and natural gas, at low and varying flow rates, is a critical variable in advanced combustion control and can help improve efficiency, reduce fuel consumption, and enhance process quality.

Ideal for demanding offshore and onshore environmental conditions, the Promass O sensor is a fully balanced device that is immune to pipe vibrations and external process influences.

OMNIPURE Series 64 Marine Sewage Treatment System

The OMNIPURE Series 64 treats raw sewage to, or beyond the now more stringent MEPC.227(64) guideline while taking up less space than its predecessor. Not just a system smaller in size, it is easier to operate with simplified controls, minimal instrumentation, less maintenance, and a completely hands-off solids management process.

V-Cone Subsea Flow Meter Brochure

The V-Cone Subsea flow meter has been in operation from the North Sea to the Gulf of Mexico over decades, built to stand the test of time. The advanced differential pressure V-Cone Subsea flow meter technology naturally conditions the flow, reducing pipe requirements to fit into tight spaces. The V-Cone Subsea flow meter has a smaller footprint on modules, manifolds, and christmas trees than any other subsea flow meter technology.
