Slurry density analysers

Process Automation announces a new range of portable hand-held slurry density analysers. Their feautures include: density analysers that are easy to use, fast and accurate; ideal for production personnel to verify the density of manually drawn samples; sample flasks available in capacities of 1, 5 and 10 L; indication of both density (SGU) and % […]

Speed sensor for conveyors

The Process Automation series 500 speed sensor may solve your conveyor problems. With its continuous output of conveyor speed, it is possible to detect a gradual decrease in this speed. This “look-ahead” ability allows time for warning/alarm to take action, before the conveyor reaches its trip point. The output of conveyor speed is in the […]

Gamma scale for plant control
