The Dräger Pac® Mobile Gas Detection Series: Pac 6000, 6500, 8000 and 8500

The Dräger Pac® series is composed of fast, accurate, reliable and easy-to-use personal single and dual gas detectors. The devices are extremely robust, featuring clear warning signals and language-free displays. Their cutting-edge sensor technology delivers reliable results every time.

The Dräger Pac series is available with a wide variety of sensors. The Pac 6000 and 6500 series can be equipped with sensors for standard natural gases like CO, H2S, SO2 or O2. The Pac 8000 series is the right choice for special gases like ozone, phosgene or nitrogen dioxide. If you need a dual sensor you can rely on the Pac 8500 series with a H2S / CO or O2 / CO sensor. In addition, the device can be equipped with a special hydrogen-compensated CO sensor for situations where carbon monoxide needs to be measured with hydrogen as a background gas.

White Paper: Integrated Process Control Level Products for the Future

Types of Level Instrumentation

Smarter monitoring facilitates safer, more effective and more sustainable processes, increases uptime and extends service life, irrespective of the industry sector. Behind the scenes, it also helps to keep the infrastructure running efficiently, day-in and day-out. The value of level measurement in this sense can not be overstated whether it is for manufacturing process Measurement & Control or in inventory tank gauging. In applications such as custody transfer, the accuracy of measurements becomes a critical parameter, while in other process industrial applications, along with reasonable accuracy, the safety and reliability parameters are essential to ensuring the overall success of any enterprise. 

In a dynamic environment, the level calculation is difficult with process vessels / tanks that constantly experience changes in the behavior of the measured process fluid due to agitation, mixing, chemical reactions or drained out for downstream processes depending on the application requires. In these systems, these procedures, combined with the fact that they occur at high temperature and/or high pressure, present a safety risk to equipment and staff, which makes the degree of measurement even more important. 

Any inappropriate and insufficient control can cause rates in vessels or tanks to be excessively higher or lower than their safe operating limits, resulting in damage to the machinery, impairing the quality of the final product or causing overflow, and potentially creating safety and environmental hazards resulting in financial losses. 

ABB 's Smart Level Measurement Solutions for Continuous and Point Level Detection can be used to measure a wide variety of liquids, including corrosive, flammable and hazardous materials, while maintaining improved protection, reliability and efficiency at a lower overall cost of ownership for your operations.

Coronavirus Fever Detection System for Businesses, Institutions, Campuses, and Facilities

The Fever Detection System FeverTIR, manufactured by VisionTIR, is designed to quickly and accurately measure people’s body temperature with an accuracy of  0.5 ºF (0.3 ºC) without contact.

Fever detection for back to work and schoolThe system is intended to alert employers and public venues of people who exceed an established maximum body temperature. The use of these devices are becoming increasingly popular as businesses, institutions, and facilities struggle with monitoring for Coronavirus. An elevated body temperature (fever) is a symptom of having the virus.

The system combines a high-precision thermal camera with a visible Full HD camera allowing body temperature measurement and the identification of people, with fast recording of the data obtained.

The system is designed for entrances entrance of hospitals, offices, industrial facilities, logistics centers, shopping centers, hotels, banks, schools, etc.

How to Connect the ABB LWT Series Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter Remote Head

The ABB LWT Series Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter uses radar frequencies, guided in a probe going into the tank or vessel, to provide continuous, reliable level measurement with high accuracy. LWT300 series instruments cover a wide range of applications. They can meet your needs for applications up to 204 °C (400 °F) and 207 bars (3000 psi). ABB LevelExpert technology concentrates over 20 years of industrial level measurement experience into an intelligent instrument made to accurately detect levels, even in the most demanding conditions.

Certain process conditions warrant the use of a remote head on the LWT300 instrument. Remote head instruments are also very useful for any reason where you might prefer or need to distance the head from the coupler (ease of access, floating roofs, etc.)

There are three main steps to installing a remote head instrument:
  1. Installing the probe-coupler assembly in the vessel. See LWT Series Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter user guide for instructions.
  2. Installing the head on a support bracket in a remote location. See LWT Series Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter user guide for instructions.
  3. Connecting the probe-coupler assembly to the instrument head with the proper coaxial communication cable.
This video demonstrates step three, the actual cable and remote head connections.

  • When connecting either end of the coaxial cable, we strongly suggest the use of a wrench or pliers.
  • Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the bottom of the head-coupler adapter.
  • The coaxial cable bend radius shall not be less than 150 mm (6 in).
  • Connect the other end of the coaxial cable to the top of the coupler.
  • Complete.
