Steriflow FBCV Sanitary Control Valves - OR Version

Steriflow FBCV Sanitary Control Valves - OR Version

The Steriflow FBCV O-Ring Series by Steriflow meets the rigid specifications for sanitary process control valves for customers who prefer an O-ring style stem seal. This valve series is suitable for various cosmetic, dairy, and food and beverage industries. Conforming to 3A guidelines, the FBCV is ideal for a wide range of flowing media in both the utility and process areas of sanitary systems.

In general, o-ring stem seals (what ASME BPE defines as sliding stem seals) for control valves on clean air and gas and liquid clean utility applications like USP Purified water and some CIP fluids. In contrast, diaphragm type control valves are on WFI (Water for Injection) systems for end of loop back pressure control, buffer dilution skids, and filtration skids for pressure and flow control and chromatography elution flow control.

The FBCV-OR's high rangeability, characterized trim, high capacities, superior temperature, and pressure ratings, and a selection of sealing methods make the sanitary control valve ideal for liquid, gas, and steam services. Whether the need is to control pressure, temperature, flow, pH, or another variable, the FBCV is the correct valve for your process.

Process Technology, Inc. Combines Partner Technology and Delivers Innovative Industrial Effluent Wastewater Measurement Solution

Industrial Effluent Wastewater Measurement Solution

Due to the regulatory nature, readings are taken multiple times a day manually, and constant alarms require a technician's attention. Questionable flow data and an ultrasonic level sensor that would not read below 3 GPM did not collect accurate or consistent flow data over the flume. pH buffers and calibrations were up to date, but due to the device's questionable age and occasional data dropout, it did not meet the regulatory requirements.

This application aims to regulate pH and flow and improve wastewater monitoring data collection's accuracy and efficiency, stay in compliance and ensure instrument reliability with a cost-efficient solution, reducing downtime.

Siemens, Mettler-Toledo, Red Lion

The Mettler Toledo M300 with an iSense 3250i pH probe provides the most reliable and accurate pH capabilities in the industry, along with added digital monitoring. Calibrations are done on the bench in a controlled environment. The sensor will tell the transmitter the approximate life of the sensor, reducing system downtime.

The Siemens LU 240 for ultrasonic level (over existing flume) calculates flow and is a very cost-effective way to gather accurate levels. A single device with a local display and a 4-20mA output covers all communication bases and accuracy requirements.

A Red Lion 10” Graphite HMI consolidates data gathering and calculates flow using the existing cellular, returning data to the control room. Data is logged in the HMI via SD Card, so if there is an interruption in the system control room, no data is lost.

PTI's industrial water and wastewater customers’ monitoring challenges are addressed by combining the technology from (3) leading instrument and technology manufacturers.

Siemens, Mettler-Toledo, and Red Lion devices are compatible with providing a cost-effective and accurate automated flow monitoring solution, mitigating the risk involved with regulatory applications.

The SIEMENS SIPART PS100 Electro-pneumatic Positioner

/p>

The SIEMENS SIPART PS100 electro-pneumatic positioners control the valve or damper position of pneumatic linear or part-turn actuators. The SIPART PS100 electro-pneumatic positioners modulate the valve according to the setpoint value. A hallmark of the SIPART PS100 is its low consumption of air. Thanks to the piezoelectric technology, compressed air is only required to move the valve. In the steady-state, consumption of air is negligible.


SIPART PS100 FEATURES:


  • Fast commissioning at the push of a button.
  • Simple operation via the display and four buttons.
  • Display symbols according to NAMUR NE 107.
  • Negligible air consumption in stationary operation.
  • Setting the application profile based on predefined selection options, e.g., tight-closing valve, open/close valve, small valve.
  • Fast response in end positions ensures short positioning times and tight valves.
  • Insensitive to vibrations and steam hammer.
  • Leakage compensation ensures a constant actual value and protects the actuator.
  • Only one device version for linear and part-turn actuators.


SIPART PS100 INDUSTRIES:


  • Power stations
  • Paper and glass
  • Water and wastewater
  • Food and pharmaceuticals

Process Technology, Inc. Delivers Automated Perlite Silo Level Measurement Solution

Automated Perlite Silo Level Measurement Solution

Objective

To increase measurement accuracy and reduce the risk of injury by eliminating the twice daily need to climb to the top of 60’ silos to measure the level of perlite. 

Safely and accurately measuring the level of raw and processed perlite, a very dusty low dielectric mineral, is a daily requirement for our customer. With the assistance of our engineering team, the technology from (2) leading instrument and technology manufacturers were combined for a solution that can be applied at several perlite plants to address silo level monitoring challenges.

Challenge

Old and non-functioning cable fed level devices require an operator to take manual measurements twice a day from the top of (4) 60’ silos. This is a potentially dangerous measurement as the weather conditions could present a slip and fall, as well as the hazard and exposure to harsh elements. 

The measurement data needs to be logged twice a day for inventory purposes and a local display for filling or drawing material is necessary for the drivers and operators.

Approach

SITRANS LR560 Radar Level
Siemens SITRANS LR560 Radar Level Transmitter is a “Rockstar” in dusty tough solids level applications. The LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter continuously monitors solids in the silos to a range of 100 m (328 ft). With plug and play performance, it is ideal for perlite applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures to +200 ºC  (+392 ºF).

Red Lion 10” Graphite HMI with analog I/O card and terminal strip for incoming power has preprogrammed HMI scaled to match radar scaling for dependable data logging and communication capabilities.

Graphite HMI with analog I/O

A Red Lion module is preprogrammed to (4) Siemens transmitters to provide level measurement for each silo, along with accurate data logged and displayed for operators and drivers. 

Process Automation ROI

The largest gain in automating outdoor top of silo level measurements with reliable products is eliminating the need to climb to the top of the silos twice a day to retrieve a level measurement. This process allows for constant and accurate silo monitoring with a significant reduction in risk of injury and optimizes work time. 

Siemens and Red Lion devices are compatible to provide a cost-effective and accurate automated silo level measurement solution,  mitigating the risk involved with a twice daily task.
