Liquid flow capability added to RTU

Honeywell Process Solutions has launched a new release of the company's ControlEdge Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), which now offers measurement of both gas and liquid flow. The newest version of the product also now offers expanded HART support, which allows for easier device commissioning and diagnostics. 

The new electronic flow metering capability supports liquid custody transfer per the American Petroleum Institute (API) 21.2 guidelines in North America. This latest release increases the efficiency of remote asset management by doubling as a flow meter, as well as allowing operators to automate loop check and commissioning, reduce hard-wired input/output (I/O) devices, and extend device diagnostics.  

"As we continue to add even more capability to our ControlEdge RTU, our focus is constantly on allowing our customers to more effectively operate their distributed assets," said Paul Vellacott, HPS solutions marketing manager. "We continue to expand the idea of what can be done via remote asset management, and the ControlEdge RTU is leading the way."

ControlEdge RTU is part of Honeywell's next generation family of controllers, leveraging the power of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It reduces equipment monitoring and diagnostic time from hours to minutes and significantly decreases configuration time. The RTU is able to withstand harsh environments and is designed for easy deployment at remote sites, in applications such as wellhead monitoring and control, data concentrators, gas flow metering, block-valve automation, and pump and compressor control, as well as in water distribution and wastewater treatment.

Featuring native redundancy, the controller complements the C300 and Series-C platform used in Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) to provide a fully integrated solution.

Selecting the Right Solid Tires for Industry Specific Applications

Approximately twenty years ago, those of us working in the off-road heavy equipment industry regularly witnessed a high amount of failures in machines operating on cement or other hard surfaces. Extended steel rims were used with small, hard, rubber wheels. When these rubber tires chipped and chunked, vibrations and bouncing sent shockwaves into the machine, causing shortened life and expensive repairs, not to mention stress on operators. Drivetrain components (U-joints and articulation joints) in particular often suffered from stress cracks caused by vibrations and a bouncing machine.
