The Ashcroft Acid Leak Detection Assembly

While dangerous acids have been safely used in industrial applications for many years, specifying proper pressure instrumentation for these locations requires unique expertise. Ashcroft understands the dangers of acid leaks. That is why they developed the Acid Leak Detection (ALD) assembly.

ALD is a special yellow coating that changes to red once it is exposed to acids with a pH of ≤ 3.0, providing visual indication of a leak of process media.

The Armstrong ASDV Ambient Sensing Drain Valve for Freeze Protection

The Armstrong ASDV Ambient Sensing Drain Valve

Designed for freeze protection of condensate systems up to 300 PSIG,  the Armstrong ASDV (Ambient Sensing Drain Valve) is ideal for protecting piping, valves, fittings, pumps, condensate systems, safety showers, fire lines, and spray nozzles freeze sensitive equipment. It also can be used to provide back-up protection on steam-traced systems or equipment.

The valve features an all-stainless steel body, fittings, spring, and plug. It is unaffected by pressure variation, sensitive to temperature only, and easily installed with simple wrenches.

Trying to provide freeze protection manually with valves cracked for continuous drainage is wasteful and possibly susceptible to freezing. The ASDV automates freeze prevention and reduces waste by opening only when freezing is imminent and closing when the danger is past. The valve minimizes water loss and eliminates damage and downtime. The ASDV’s unique ram-type plug and seat provide reliable, tight shut-off longer than any other design, and all valves are 100% factory tested.

The ASDV thermal element senses ambient temperatures, and at a preset temperature, the drain valve will open. Water from the line will then flow past the element. If the water temperature becomes high enough, the valve will close. If the water temperature is low, the valve will modulate to maintain temperature or open to drain completely. The valve will be fully open at 35˚F (2˚C). As the temperature rises, the valve will be tightly closed at 40˚F (4.4˚C).

Replace Existing Valves or Steam Traps Quickly With Armstrong's Patented, 10-in-1 TVS 6000UD

Upgrade to the flanged version of Armstrong's compact, Double-Isolation-and-Bleed Trap Valve Station, and you can replace any existing flanged steam trap, valve, or strainer quickly without any pipework modifications. Replacing a complete welded or threaded set of ancillaries requires only four welds or threads with the SW / BW or NPT / BSPT versions.

A safer way to prevent burns during steam trap replacement—with no need to shut down the system.

Single Isolation valves and standard double-block-and-bleed configurations allow operators to close just one of the two isolation valves, resulting in a severe accident. This mistake is impossible with Armstrong's unique, Double-Isolation-and-Bleed Trap Valve Station because both isolation valves operate simultaneously.

Save design, procurement, and installation costs with Armstrong's compact, 10-in-1 TVS 6000UD.

Armstrong's  Double-Isolation-and-Bleed Trap Valve Station contains eight high-quality valves with one strainer and one two-bolt universal connector—all in a single unit. There is no need to design, purchase, store, and install ten separate components with Armstrong's Trap Valve Station, making it the most cost-effective solution on the market to eliminate risks associated with replacing steam traps.

Features of TVS 6000UD include:

  • Error-proof double-isolation and bleed design
  • Allows for optimal energy efficiency through steam trap replacement with no system shut-down
  • PN40 has a standard steam trap face-to-face (DN15 and DN20 are 150 mm and DN25 is 160 mm)
  • Custom footprints for existing installations available upon request
  • Available for all steam trap technologies with universal two-bolt connector
  • Streamlined mounting and fewer weld points
  • 3-year warranty and repairable piston valve technology

Leading Edge Electric Actuators - The Limitorque MXb

The Limitorque MXb electric actuator performs across a broad range of challenging applications where reliability is critical, including oil and gas; commercial power; chemical; fresh and wastewater; and general industries.

Improved reliability

The actuator's design isolates critical components, protecting them from electrical shock and interference, typical in extreme environments. High-quality materials extend actuator service life, operating ranges, and mean time between failure.

Enhanced user experience

An updated user interface coupled with a simplified, intuitive menu structure and larger, high-resolution LCD screen makes navigation easy and enables 50% faster commissioning, set-up, and operation. Users of any skill level can configure the actuator through various pre-configured or customization options for quick and error-free set-up and operation. A larger, higher-resolution LCD with a built-in ambient light sensor offers eight times the previous display's resolution to extend viewing distances up to 30 feet. Real-time torque graphs, alarm and event logs, and other data are accessible in higher-quality resolution.

Advanced diagnostics and analytics

The MXb electric actuator's next-generation diagnostics and analytics capabilities help operators monitor and track its performance and quickly respond to upset conditions. The MXb actuator has 500 times the previous MX model's memory capacity, allowing increased data capture and storage for higher degrees of process monitoring, data logging, and information feedback. Additionally, a real-time clock enables data log time stamping to support asset management functions and lifecycle analysis.

Simplified maintenance

A new electric connector design removes the need for brackets and hold-downs, making maintenance more straightforward and faster. And the enhanced connector design ensures robust connectivity throughout the rated seismic and vibration envelope.

Lead-Free, Regulation Compliant Water Valves from ASCO and Mead O'Brien

Mead O'Brien ASCO Lead-free valves

Lead is extremely toxic. Tight US safety regulations affect manufacturers of products such as drinking water fountains, reverse osmosis systems, coffee machines. and commercial kitchen equipment. A lead-free system cannot contain soldering flux with greater than 0.2% lead content, or more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead in the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures. Under the law, lead free is a cumulative concept. Let's take an example. A manufacturer who makes dishwashers performs the lead content calculation, averaging all of the models relevant components. A brass valve has 2.5% lead content in the brass parts, well over the 0.25% limit. But the small wetted surface area of the valve is outweighed by the large wetted surface of the stainless steel tank with zero lead content. No design changes are needed to comply with the law.

Considerations for Solenoid Valve Selection

  • Brass can have 2.5% lead content, so you must do a calculation to ensure compliance.
  • Lead-free brass products are now available.
  • Composite and plastic components are lead free.
  • Stainless steel is lead free, but it remains expensive.
  • NSF approved valves are often the preferred choice and may even be mandated in the future

ASCO Lead-Free Valve Solutions

ASCO Series 212 Composite Valves - These composite valves are designed for use in potable water applications and come with NSF certifications. Installation is made easy through the FasN system, with multiple end connector options. Download the Series 212 Brochure for more information.

ASCO Series 210 Solenoid Valves - ASCO has introduced new lead-free brass solenoid valves to the market that are aimed at providing a safer alternative to standard brass valves. The new products meet the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act Section 1417 low lead requirements.

Advantage Goes to Radar Level Over Ultrasonic Transmitters for Bulk, Dry Materials

Ultrasonic level transmitters used in dry bulk solids level monitoring are starting to be eclipsed. Radar level technology is now so good that it can get a level or distance signal from unreflective media such as polypropylene pellets. Compared to ultrasonics, radar is often more reliable, easier to use and has lower maintenance requirements.

The LR64 and LR65 from Schneider Electric (Foxboro) offer customers the benefit of reliable, trouble free solids level measurement. The radars use powerful Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology and advanced signal processing technology.
