This expansion to ControlAir's line of regulators is compatible with sour gas environments and adapts to offshore environments with fluorocarbon diaphragm construction and 316 stainless steel housing and filter assemblies. They use oversized valving to get a high flow rate with minimum pressure drop, and can vent hazardous gases remotely with a tapped exhaust port. It has an air consumption rate of 4 SCFH (0.1 m3 per hour), and removes solid and liquid particles down to 25 microns (5 micron option). The 350SS regulator comes in ¼ - inch NPT and ½ - inch NPT porting, and the 360SS regulator comes in ¼ - inch NPT. Four output ranges over up to 150 psig (20 BAR) outputs, with a maximum supply pressure of 290 psig (20 BAR). They come with two ¼ - inch NPT gauge ports. They work in low-temperature application ranges from -58 to +194F, or -50 to +90C. Other optional hardware is also available. ControlAir Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-604
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
