Solenoid control without the bang: working in explosive atmospheres

Solenoid control without the bang: working in explosive atmospheres
The automation of process control systems is very important for improving efficiency and reliability. In the majority of cases, this can be achieved quite easily, but in situations where the whole atmosphere poses a potential risk, finding the best solution can be quite a challenge. Paul Hobden, Bürkert UK ATEX solenoid valve champion, looks at the challenges surrounding process control in potentially explosive atmospheres and how they can be overcome.

Intelligent health care for industrial gear units

Intelligent health care for industrial gear units
Industrial gear units are drive technology heavyweights which need to handle large torques. Due to the large forces involved, small defects which are not detected in time can quickly result in complete breakdowns. This would not only be expensive, but also disastrous, major plant components would remain at a standstill until a replacement was delivered and installed.
