The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and its Foreseeable Future

Oct 04, 2017

Introduction The Programmable Logic Controller is a computer designed specifically for industrial applications that range from simple lighting projects to running entire manufacturing processes. This system can perform a wide variety of functions, providing many analog and digital Input/ Output (I/O) interfaces, and various communication protocols. All the PLC's components and functions revolve around the controller, which is programmed to perform a specific task. ... Read More

What are the Applications of Electrical Heat Tracing?

Aug 02, 2017

What is Electrical Heat Tracing Electrical Heat Tracing is an engineered system designed to maintain or protect process piping, equipment, vessels, and instruments at defined temperatures and within specified design criteria. An electrical heat tracing system is much more than just the heating cable. A large majority of commercial electrical heat-tracing systems are of the resistive type and take the form of cables that are placed on pipes. When electric cu... Read More

Basics of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Jun 07, 2017

Overview of HVAC System HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The main idea behind this system is that it provides cooling and heating to both residential and commercial buildings. HVAC is important in the design of medium to large industrial applications like power plants, onboard vessels, office buildings such as skyscrapers, and in marine environments such as aquariums, where safe and healthy building conditions are regula...

What is ATEX and IECEx Certification?

Apr 05, 2017

What is ATEX and what does it stand for? ATEX is the short form for ATmospheres EXplosible. The ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU covers equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The directive defines the essential health and safety requirements and conformity assessment procedures, to be applied before products are placed on the EU market. It is aligned with the new legislative framework policy, ... Read More

What is Electrical Heat Tracing (nVent Raychem)?

Feb 08, 2017

What is Electrical Heat Tracing(EHT)? Electrical Heat Tracing is an engineered system designed to maintain or protect process piping, equipment, vessels, and instruments at defined temperatures and within the specified design criteria. Electric cables are used for trace heating and to maintain temperature of non-flowing fluids by replacing the heat lost through thermal insulation on pipes, vessels and associated equipment. A self-regulating polymer... Read More
