Sigma I/O modules for controlling temperature under extreme ambient conditions in a glass plant

Sigma CanOpen Series
May 19, 2015

AsconTecnologic’s Sigma I/O modules have been used under extreme ambient conditions to control temperature in a forehearth of a glass plant in Siberia. The forehearth must grant a thermal process suitable to obtain a defined and stable glass temperature together with thermal homogeneity and stability. Also required is the capability to quickly reach the thermal stability after a job change. Efficient conditioning depends on the mechanical characteristics of the forehearth…


Hand held instruments for Nuclear Power Plants!

May 12, 2015

Applications for hand-held instruments in nuclear power plants fall into two general categories, worker oriented and location oriented. Worker Oriented Instrumentation There are two levels of workers who use hand-held devices – those on the Rad Protection staff with a working knowledge of Health Physics and those with only a basic knowledge of radiation who perform specific tasks at the plant (electrician, mechanical technician, welder, etc.). CANBERRA offers hand-held HP…

May 8, 2015

A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power plants, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural gas processing, and sewage treatment. The classic example of a heat exchanger is found…
