How To Select An Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducer

White Paper - Alpha Controls & Instrumentation

Engineers selecting pressure transducers in hazardous industries must make one more significant consideration beyond performance, reliability and stability; they must specify units with intrinsically safe (IS) circuits. This paper discusses what industries and applications require intrinsically safe systems and the technical considerations for specifying an IS pressure transducer.

Greater Process Integrity with Intelligent Sensors


In process industries, maintaining product quality while improving process safety and controlling operating costs is a constant challenge. Maintenance demands for instrumentation and unplanned production downtimes resulting from the failure of measurement technology are substantial cost factors. Cutting-edge process analytical systems with built-in intelligence increase process integrity and reduce downtime by predicting their own maintenance. They also reduce sensor lifecycle costs.

Comparing Displacer Transmitters vs. Differential Pressure Transmitters for Liquid Level Measurement

White Paper - Magnetrol

The differential pressure level transmitter is one of the oldest technologies commonly used in the process control industry. The displacer level transmitter, a newer technology, operates using the same measurement principle. However, the two have significant differences. Learn more about how these differences impact the efficiency of liquid level measurement.

Safety Instrumented Systems:
The “Logic” of Single Loop Logic Solvers

White Paper - Moore Industries International

As companies become more aware of the risks associated with their operations due to catastrophic events, they understand the importance of complying with national and worldwide safety standards such as ANSI/ISA 84 and IEC 61508/61511. A key element to compliance and safety are Single Loop Logic Solvers, which work within a Safety Instrument System to monitor variables such as temperature, pressure, level, flow, position or status. They can provide a warning, on/off control or emergency shutdown if readings exceed a specified level. This white paper highlights safety alarm trips from Moore Industries and how they can help provide your plant with a valuable asset in complying with important safety standards and preventing potential devastating accidents from occurring in case of an emergency.

Refinery Application:
Improve reliability and decrease alarm count

White Paper - Endress+Hauser

The purpose of this paper is to discuss how to decrease alarms due to redundant level devices not matching especially in applications with high pressure and/or high temperature. The importance of Gas Phase Compensation (GPC) and how it affects level readings of guided wave radar (GWR) devices is critical. The presence of polar gas also can have an effect on the accuracy of any GWR that does not have GPC when installed in applications where high temperature or pressure is present. This paper will discuss these issues and address how to overcome them.
