TWICE AS EASY On the safe side with differential pressure measurement Pressure vessels and process tanks have to meet high safety requirements. Continuous monitoring of the differential pressure plays a major role in minimizing the risks from hazards such as excess pressure, leaks or dust-explosive substances. VEGABAR series 80 pressure transmitters have proven to be The process pressure transmitter VEGABAR 82 with oil-free, ceramiccapacitive CERTEC® measuring cell. Its most outstanding features are high abrasion and overload resistance as well as self-monitoring of the measuring cell. very effective for this task. And the method is simple: just put two of them together. Thanks to innovative technology, two of these pressure gauges can be quickly transformed into a perfect electronic differential pressure system. Two sensors of the VEGABAR series 80 determine the process pressure with the help of two measured values: the tank pressure and the total pressure resulting from the pressure of the medium and the overpressure. The user can simply take a pressure transmitter from stock, order another identical sensor with electronics version “slave” and have an electronic differential pressure system up and running in a jiffy. As opposed to conventional differential pressure systems, electronic differential pressure measurement with VEGABAR series 80 is not affected by the ambient temperature or strong vibration. And it has another impressive feature: in the version with oil-free ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell, the pressure transmitter is completely resistant to temperature shocks. In fact, this extremely high overload resistance factor of 200 can be found nowhere else on the market. Its simple operation based on the proven instrument platform plics® and optional “second line of defense” make it the ideal solution for differential pressure measurement.

It can be highly dangerous if hose assemblies are misapplied and if inadequate attention is given to the maintenance of the hose and related equipment.” These new Eaton 4S/6S hose assemblies - which refer to the 4-spiral and 6-spiral wire reinforcement of the hose approved with respective 4S and 6S series fittings - exceeds stringent industry specifications. Eaton’s DURA-SEAL technology eliminates hose assembly cool-down leakage, thus reducing equipment downtime and extending life of the hose assembly. DURA- KOTE plating technology offers over 1 000 hours of corrosion protection on carbon steel fittings, which is three times the corrosion protection of competitive hose fittings. The MatchMate hose/fitting identification system helps the assembler of spiral hose and hose fittings to quickly and easily identify the correct hose and hose fitting to be crimped together. This system not only enhances reliability and safety of the product, but also reduces wastage from assembling the wrong hose and fitting. Eaton 4S/6S hose is designed for applications that include high pressure hydraulic systems, petroleum and water-based fluids, as well as construction and agriculture equipment. This range consists of a synthetic rubber tube and cover with 4 and 6-spiral wire reinforcement. An ink transfer layline in this series is standard. Matching hose and hose ends reduce the chance of assembly error. Other products available from BMG’s fluid technology division include valves, accumulators, cylinders, heat exchangers, hydraulic motors and hydraulic plumbing, pumps and reservoir accessories. The company’s fluid technology services encompass project engineering and consulting, cylinder design and manufacture, hydraulic training, repair and testing and onsite container services.
