Precision Digital Corporation, global leader in digital panel meters and control instrumentation celebrating its 40th year in business, has announced the latest versions of the PD6100 Strain Gauge Meter and the PD8-6100 Explosion-Proof Strain Gauge Meter. Part of the ProVu and ProtEX families of digital panel meters, the PD6100 and PD8-6100 are digital strain gauge and load cell meters designed for weight, millivolt, and force measurement applications.
New features include the ability to power up to twelve (12) 350 ohm load cells. Enhanced programming buttons now closely resemble the operation of a typical scale, allowing for zeroing with one button push. The Tare/Reset Tare function enables the meters to compensate for anomalies, such as sludge buildup at the bottom of an empty tank. In addition, the dual-scale function means measurements can be displayed in two different units of measure.
BS&B has recently introduced its new platform of flame arrester / relief vent products and services, which will be sold under the name BS&B FlameSaf Limited; a company dedicated to protecting industrial plants and personnel from the dangers of explosion, flame propagation and overpressure.

ODE Valve Canada has introduced an extensive series of 2/2-way and 3/2-way high quality affordable solenoid valves, manifolds and pressure transducers that have been designed for a wide variety of industrial and OEM applications.
Multiple AC and DC coil voltages are available and housed in a NEMA 4 enclosure with brass or 316 SS valve bodies. Pressure ratings from 0 to 1450 psi and maximum temperature up to 360 degrees F. ODE offers NSF certified products with all valves being CSA/UL approved including CRN approval for Canada.
On 14 February 2015, a Canadian National (CN) crude oil unit train was proceeding eastward on CN's Ruel Subdivision near Gogama, Ontario. The train crew was composed of a locomotive engineer and a conductor. The train was equipped with 2 head-end locomotives hauling 100 Class 111 tank cars, 68 loaded with Petroleum Crude Oil (UN 1267) and 32 loaded with Petroleum Distillates (UN 1268). The train was 6089 feet long and weighed 14 355 tons.
At about 23:50, while travelling at 38 mph, the train crew felt a heavy tug on the train and a train-initiated emergency brake application occurred near Mile 111.6. Subsequently, the crew observed a fire about 10 cars behind the locomotives, so they detached the locomotives from the train. The temperature at the time was -31°C and a slow order (speed restriction) of 40 mph was in place.
A new 6000 PSI Double Block & Bleed (DBBV) service valve is the latest advancement in Rohrback Cosasco corrosion monitoring solutions. The double block and bleed service valve is safer than a standard service valve and is often mandated by the oil and gas industry or operator policy for improved safety. The fundamental difference between this new advanced safety DBBV service valve and the standard service valve is that the double block and bleed valve has a secondary ball/sealing surface to retain pressure in the event that the first ball or sealing surface is damaged.
The Rohrback Cosasco double block and bleed service valve has several unique operational features. First, it has a rotating base, which makes it easy to adjust the position of the handles to either open or close the valve by simply rotating the valve itself into the correct position. This makes servicing in tight spaces or when using a Cosasco retriever much easier. Secondly, the Cosasco double block and bleed valve operates mechanically thus eliminating the need for compressors and a local power source which would require additional equipment and may not always be available in the field.
