Test rig technology that talks the torque

Test rig technology that talks the torque
Analysing the long term performance and reliability of hard working valves and pumps, Bifold Group has adopted radio frequency based torque transducers from Sensor Technology for two of its specialist test rigs. An inter-generational commitment to advancing science and engineering has seen Bifold transform from a 19th century mining lamp maker into a leading manufacturer of instrument valves and accessories, piping valves and pumps for the oil, gas and wider industrial markets.

Non-contact technology simplifies torque monitoring

Non-contact technology simplifies torque monitoring
One of the best ways to assess the performance of plant and machinery, is to monitor torque in a drive shaft. However because drive shafts rotate, hard wiring a sensor into place usually requires the use of a delicate slip ring. An alternative solution is to use a non-contact radio frequency detector to monitor 'Surface Acoustic Waves' (SAWs), as Mark Ingham of Sensor Technology Ltd explains.

Level switch allows user to automate sensor configuration

Level switch allows user to automate sensor configuration
Manufacturer and developer of sensors, encoders, measuring instruments and components for automated image-processing, Baumer, has announced the immediate availability of LBFH and LBFI level switches with IO-Link and ATEX approval. The IO-Link interface allows the user to automate the configuration of sensors. The inclusion of ATEX also enables the use of commercially available barriers. The sensors are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications.
