GOODBYE TO THE MANOMETER NEEDLE! Instrotech is offering Keller’s electronic ECO 2 manometer – an instrument that can perform all standard measuring jobs at an exceptionally low price. Compared to its mechanical predecessors. Keller’s digital technology offers high resolution, excellent repeatability at very similar prices. The ECO 2’s dual display updates twice every second, showing the measured value and the minimum or maximum value attained. As a special feature, the ECO 2 has a Zero Tare feature, allowing the user to set the zero to any pressure, so that the manometer will then always show deviations from the Zero Tare value as the actual value. The user-friendly two-key operating system provides access to the entire range of functions: the stored MAX/MIN can be erased and reset to zero, or the device can be switched to continuous mode. In continuous operating mode, the battery has capacity for up to 1000 hours. The ECO 2 electronic manometer has a standard automatic switchoff time of about 15 minutes after the last key function, this extends the battery life where continuous operation is not required. The easy-to-handle ECO 2 is available with two practice-based measuring ranges of -1…30 bar and 0…300 bar in the compensated temperature range from 0 to 50°C, the economically priced standard manometer offer typical overall accuracy of 0,5%FS (Full Scale). The standard design features IP65 protection, and the optional protective cover means that it can also be operated reliably outdoors in any weather conditions. This instrument is also available in an Exia ATEX approved version compliant with 94/9/EC. The standard delivery includes a swivel pressure connection that optimises readout alignment during operation.

LEVEL UP AS TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES, LEVEL MEASUREMENT TOOLS ARE BECOMING MORE SOPHISTICATED. OPTIWAVE 7500 - DN40; 1.5” PEEK Lens antenna with DN80 flange connection Highlights: • 80 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter for liquids in narrow tanks with internal obstructions • Flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna (no tank intrusion): – Insensitive to deposit – Small dead zone and beam angle (4° with DN70; 2.75” Lens antenna) – Flange plate protection for corrosive media – 112 mm; 4.4” antenna extension for long nozzles • Extensive choice of process connections: thread ≥¾” and flange ≥DN50; 2” • ±2 mm; ±0.08” accuracy • Measuring distances up to 100 m; 328 ft • Process conditions up to +150°C; +302°F / 40 barg; 580 psig Since radar was developed and deployed during the Second World War, it’s use has expanded enormously. As technology advances, these uses are also advancing. For example, radar technology is used in the motor industry to assist in detecting objects near a car or truck, for warning systems. Staying with transport, radar can also detect if a person has fallen overboard from a cruise ship. The construction industry uses radar to test concrete viability and strength consistency. When it comes to level measurement, radar offers accuracy and efficiency, which is essential for safety, stock inventory and processing. Radar is exceptionally robust and can be used in any circumstance, weather or environmental conditions as well as for nearly every temperature range and viscosity of measured medium. Deon Rampathi, Sales Manager for KROHNE, says, “Accurate, consistent measurement is essential. Radar technology delivers just that.” The world is becoming ‘smarter’ and solutions need to fit into a world that has become increasingly tech-savvy as well as more automated. Smarter measurement enhances the safety, sustainability and efficiency of operations. This extends into more reliable and enhanced up-time as well as the extension of equipment service life. “We’ve introduced the OPTIWAVE 7500, a powerful radar measurement tool that’s geared towards those hard-to-reach situations. It’s a new generation of liquids measurement with better measurement performance, enhanced software and an improved, more powerful signal processor,” says Rampathi. The OPTIWAVE 7500 has a *80 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter for liquids in narrow tanks with internal obstructions. The flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna means there’s no tank intrusion. It’s also insensitive to deposits and has a small dead zone and beam angle (4° with DN70; 2.75” Lens antenna) with a flange plate protection for corrosive media and a 112 mm; 4.4” antenna extension for long nozzles. Accuracy is ±2 mm and there is an extensive choice of process connections with measuring distances up to 100 m in up to +1500C. “For our customers who want to keep their existing antennae and upgrade the electronics without losing the hermetic seal on the tank, there is an OPTIWAVE 7500 retrofit option,” adds Rampathi. As a world-leader in the manufacture and supply of industrial process instrumentation, KROHNE are focussed on creating solutions for almost every application and understand the need for smarter, more efficient systems. *For further information, download this white paper on 80GHz FMCW Technology About KHRONE KROHNE is a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation.
