Field and Control-Panel Communication Platform

1708mtprod13pCommunication-interfacing options provided by SIRIUS ACT with PROFINET enable simplified combinations of push buttons and signaling devices, HMI touchscreens, and industrial PCs. Complex input stations can reportedly be set up without extensive wiring and engineering. Integration into the manufacturer’s TIA Portal leads to better harmonization with the hardware, thus speeding configuration. An option-handling feature enables flexible design and individual adaptation of systems, even during ongoing operation.

24/7 Bearing Monitoring

4Cast is a smart alert system that records data and sounds continuously, issues alarms, and sends data and sound samples to DMS software for analysis and reporting. Data and sound samples can be reviewed and analyzed to determine the condition of a bearing just before, during, and after a change in alarm status. Permanently installed transducers continuously monitor bearing condition 24/7. All data is stored locally. Should a change in condition occur and a pre-established alarm level is entered, the system, using the user’s Ethernet will issue an alarm notification, and enter data and sound samples into a UE DMS data-management system until the alarm condition has been reversed.

Shaft-Mount Gearboxes

1708mtprod07pIronHorse shaft-mount gearboxes (speed reducers) are made from high-grade steel, case hardened, and precision ground to AGMA standards. The shafts have reinforced double-lip seals to protect against contamination and prevent oil from escaping. Premium ball and tapered roller bearings provide smooth operation and lower noise. Extended gear centers ensure tooth contact and consistent operation. The gearboxes are available in 9:1, 15:1, and 25:1 gear ratios and frame sizes from 2 to 5.

Turbomachinery Couplings

WE7454 phaseOne.qxp:Layout 1Turboflex Plus couplings combine Turboflex and Ameridisc disc coupling technologies with Ameriflex diaphragm coupling to create a coupling for sensitive high-speed turbocompressors as well as low-speed load applications. The couplings are API-671/ISO10441 compliant for critical oil and gas, energy, and petrochemical applications. Three coupling types are available for marine applications, and reduced-moment high speed and critical high-speed compressors used in refining and petrochemical processing.

Explosion-Proof Flow Monitor

1708mtprod09pThe Blancett B3100 series flow monitor is a flexible, reportedly easy-to-use digital signall-processing platform for flow-metering applications. Data logging and remote data access and programming are available without opening the enclosure. The monitor processes a frequency output from a flow meter and interprets the signal to calculate flow rate and total flow simultaneously with 16-point linearization of the flow curve (with interpolation) for improved accuracy. The unit features simplified K-factor and engineering unit configuration for volumetric or mass readings. The unit is explosion-proof for harsh surroundings in accordance with ATEX, IECEx, FM, and CSA c-us.

Adjustable Industrial Temperature Switches

1707mtprod03pDesign improvements to the ProSense line of temperature switches include the TSDA25 series, a replacement for the TSD25 series that provide higher accuracy and a standard 6-mm-dia. probe. The switches provide temperature monitoring and control with setup using mechanical adjustment dials. A durable housing and no moving parts provide reliability and long-term stability. LEDs indicate switching and operating status.

The new Siemens bucket elevator drive unit contains components from the Flender SIG gearbox series and the new Simogear range of geared motors.

Redesigned bucket elevator drives use two drive units for each power train. With the Flender gear drives as the main drive, the Siemens Simogear geared motors are used as auxiliary drives. The Simogear motors provide high energy efficiency using the shank pinion principle with the unit’s compact design due to an aluminum housing and integrated end plate. Flender gear units can be customized for user requirements.
