Arc stud welder

Nelson Stud Welding has introduced the first 120-volt stud welding power source developed around Nelson’s industry leading Arc Charger platform. Designated the N550c Arc Charger, the new high-speed stud weld system can precisely weld the full range of drawn arc studs up to 3/8² pitch (m8) diameter. Input energy is efficiently drawn from a standard 120V wall outlet, and stored in a durable, precisely charged electrical storage system. The user can even adjust the rate of this energy draw, allowing an Arc Charger to share a single wall outlet with other devices.

The N550c Arc Charger weighs just 86 pounds and requires no special training – making weld set-up quick and easy. The welder just inputs the stud diameter and base material type, and a feature on the system, the “Stud Expert”, automatically selects the right setting.

The Arc Charger’s versatile keypad makes setup easy, with preset buttons provided to save favorite settings. The alphanumeric display shows settings, actual weld results, as well as diagnostic error codes to help with troubleshooting. The Arc Charger is compatible with guns, cables and other accessories from Nelson.

Corrosion prevention

MCI-2012 IntegraPel is an integral waterproofing and corrosion-inhibiting admixture designed to prevent or retard corrosion of steel reinforcement in new concrete structures. It is a water-based organic admixture. MCI-2012 IntegraPel uses a two-pronged approach to protect embedded steel. It reduces the intrusion of corrosive species into the concrete and provides a self-replenishing protective layer on embedded reinforcement with Cortec’s patented, time-proven migratory corrosion inhibitor (MCI). MCI-2012 IntegraPel differentiates itself from other waterproofing admixtures by directly protecting the reinforcing steel, the entity that plays the most important role in determining the longevity of a concrete structure.

MCI-2012 IntegraPel is particularly suited as a corrosion preventative for concrete construction exposed to corrosive environments (carbonation, chlorides, and atmospheric attack). This product is formulated to reduce porosity of the concrete and make the concrete waterproof. It also incorporates corrosion inhibitors that protect the steel rebar itself. MCI-2012 IntegraPel admixture is added to concrete prior to placement, thus inherently increasing the durability of the concrete/mortar. This economically effective liquid is recommended for all reinforced concrete including precast, pre-stressed, and post-tensioned structures.

Power modules

Cree Power

Cree Inc. has expanded the silicon carbide (SiC) 1.2 kV six-pack power module family with a new 20A all-SiC module ideally suited for 5-15 kW three-phase applications. Based on Cree’s C2M SiC MOSFET and Z-Rec SiC Schottky diode technology, the six-pack module enables designers to unlock the traditional constraints of power density, efficiency, and cost associated with Si-based inverters used in industrial power conversion systems.

The all-SiC 1.2 kV, 20A six-pack features the industry’s lowest switching losses due to the zero turn-off tail current in the MOSFET and the zero reverse recovery current in the Schottky diode. When compared to similar Si IGBT modules, the new Cree 20A six-pack module operates at a much lower junction temperature allowing designers to aggressively pursue new paradigms in high frequency and power density without compromising on efficiency.

Level transmitter

Endress+Hauser

Endress+Hauser introduced the Deltabar FMD71 level transmitter, which uses two pressure sensor modules, each connected electronically to a single transmitter. Using a Ceraphire ceramic sensor in the pressure sensor modules, the transmitter calculates the differential pressure from both sensors and transmits the level, volume or mass via 4-20 mA with HART as a standard two-wire loop-powered device.

One sensor module measures the hydrostatic pressure (HP) and the other one the head pressure (LP). Each sensor sends a digital signal corresponding to temperature compensated measured pressure to the transmitter. This electronic system eliminates issues of traditional differential pressure measurements by doing away with impulse lines or capillaries and their related issues of icing, clogging, leaks, condensation and changing ambient temperatures.

The sensors connect to the transmitter module via industry standard, color-coded twisted pair cable and have NEMA 4X/6P (IP66/IP68) watertight housings and connections. The transmitter can be located away from the sensors in areas safe and convenient for personnel. The system meets ATEX, IEC Ex, CSA and FM specifications for use in hazardous areas including Zones 0, 1 and 2; and Division 1 and 2.

Flue gas O2 analyzer

Emerson Process Management

Emerson Process Management has enhanced the Rosemount Analytical 6888 In Situ Flue Gas O2 Analyzer with new diagnostics that help maintain optimum oxygen levels in flue gases, thereby optimizing the combustion efficiency of large boilers and industrial furnaces.

The 6888 incorporates a “calibration recommended” diagnostic with gas-switching solenoids embedded within the probe electronics, making automatic calibration easier than ever. The embedded diagnostic reduces the cost of providing and installing a separate solenoid box, and also reduces the effort to wire and pipe between the probe and electronics, decreasing man-hour requirements. Additionally, the calibration recommended diagnostic removes the need to conduct calibrations on a schedule, eliminating many validations (calibrations checks) or actual calibrations. The new analyzer also includes a “plugged diffuser/filter” diagnostic for applications that have fly ash or other particulate entrained in the flue gases, which further reduces personnel time and maintenance as well as helping to ensure accuracy.

Another new feature of the 6888 is a variable insertion option, which permits ideal placement of the probe into the flue gas duct. With standard length probes from 18-inch (.5m) to 12-feet (3.65m) in horizontal or vertical installation, the probe can be adjusted at any time on-line to characterize stratification across large ducts.
