Monitor, manage and protect your fuel with Tank-i
With the ever-escalating cost of fuel these days, the siphoning-off of fuel from vehicles for illicit sale in commercial fleets and industry in general is, not surprisingly and most alarmingly, on the increase. Rototherm, represented locally by Instrotech, uses the proven Canongate technology.
Portable pneumatic and hydraulic kit for on-site pressure calibration
Leitenberger GmbH, leading manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic hand pumps – represented in southern Africa by Instrotech – is offering portable pneumatic and hydraulic pressure kits for on-site calibration.
Rototherm, represented locally by Instrotech, has launched VesselCheck, a non-invasive liquid level measurement using proven Rototherm Canongate Technology - leading suppliers of process measurement technology for level, liquid concentration and density and carbon dioxide. VesselCheck has found world-wide application in the petrochemical, pharmaceutical, beverage, refrigeration and transport industries for applications as diverse as refrigerant receivers (up to 2000mm); LPG tanks; fuel tanks; distilled spirit vats; beer tanks; pure water tanks; liquid chlorine tanks and acids/solvents tanks.
Instrotech, distributor and manufacturer of a range of process control instrumentation and specialised systems, has announced the launch of UK-based Monitran’s MTN/VM220; a compact, handheld meter for measuring vibration and temperature levels.
Keller, leading manufacturer of measuring technology such as isolated pressure transducers and transmitters - represented in southern Africa by Instrotech – offers a specifically designed level transmitter with Kynar®-Diaphragm for sewage applications (non-fouling) for extended service in sewage lift station environments. Keller’s 36XKY features a relatively wide monolithic diaphragm yet small overall size, combining the non-stick quality of Teflon with superior toughness and abrasion resistance that simplifies installation and eliminates the need for bulky and expensive protective cages.
4004 / 5004 Programmable load cell indicators
Instrotech, local distributor of process control instrumentation and specialised systems, has proudly announced that their 4004 / 5004 panel-mount load cell indicator has become their overall best-seller, and South Africa’s favourite product for the accurate and reliable weighing and control of materials. Acknowledged as an industry standard, it has found application in virtually all industries, for example:
Instrotech, local distributor of process control instrumentation and specialised systems, has announced the availability of the Optris PI camera featuring online thermal imaging systems, claiming impressive cost-to-performance ratios. Developed to thermally determine objects and automatically detect hot or cold spots, typical applications are research and development (R&D); test stations (T&M); process automation and portable measurement tasks.
KOBOLD Instrumentation, represented in South Africa by Instrotech – a Comtest Group company – has combined and modularly constructed their NGM (remote transmission level measurement) with the proven NBK (bypass level indicator) to produce a level instrument which works on the principle of Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR), or guided microwave/radar.
With the ever-escalating cost of fuel these days, the siphoning-off of fuel from vehicles for illicit sale in commercial fleets and industry in general is, not surprisingly and most alarmingly, on the increase. Rototherm, represented locally by Instrotech, uses the proven Canongate technology. Tank-i has been developed for level measurement on the vehicle fuel tank and is a solution that allows fleet operators to monitor, manage and ultimately protect their fuel.
One of the crucial points in production of malt whisky is ensuring the spirit cuts are done at the correct strength. Since controls were introduced to discourage the production of illicit spirit in 1823, this has been done using a combination of hydrometers and thermometers in a spirit safe.
