High-pressure bellows seal

Senior Operations LLC Metal Bellows has developed a high-pressure bellows seal, the DELTA P, for use in injection valve applications. The DELTA P is capable of withstanding high external system pressures, while maintaining low differential pressure across the edge-welded bellows. This low differential pressure feature enables the bellows to be designed with thinner material, which increases the stroking and cycle life capability. This bellows seal is ideal for use in gas lift valve applications. Senior has applied for a patent on this new technology.

The DELTA P Dome pressure features 1,000 to 15,000 PSIG, injection pressure: 1,000 to 15,000PSIG, 20,000 cycles minimum, Inconel 718/625 bellows, and Incaloy 945/945X housing.

Corrosion protection

The latest innovation from Cortec Laboratories, Inc., the S-10FA, is a filming amine formula for corrosion control in boiler condensate systems. The molecules of S-10FA anchor their hydrophilic heads to wetted metal surfaces while their hydrophobic tails will shield metal surfaces from contact with acidic corrosive condensates and prevent corrosion products, dirt, and other impurities in condensate return system from attachment to the metal. A thin protective field is formed on the metal when S-10FA is volatilized in the steam stream.

S10-FA is thermo-stable and compatible with a majority of boiler treatment chemicals. S-10FA should be added separately from other boiler treatment chemicals and preferably be injected into the steam header.

Quick-release brackets

Designed to fit all fan-driven models of DustBoss atomized mist dust suppression equipment, the new bracket design allows removal and replacement of the manifold in about five minutes, with no tools required.

The stainless steel bracket and pin mounting system from Dust Control Technology (DCT) secures the manifold in position, allowing maintenance personnel to remove and replace quickly for routine cleaning or other service. Initially developed in response to customer input for use in harsh service conditions to reduce potential risk to employees, the design is expected to find utility among any customers wanting to avoid work stoppages and maximize process time.

The new bracket can be retrofitted to any of DCT’s existing fan-driven designs. Customers can order one mounting kit to fit DustBoss models DB-45, DB-60 or DB-100. The smaller DB-30 incorporates a different stud size and pattern, requiring its own mounting kit. Both kits feature the pin mounting system with no-tool removal. The specially-designed pin is permanently affixed to a lanyard.

Non-clogging pressure transmitter

The FilterSense Model DP 20T (differential) and SP 20T (static) pressure transmitters feature a non-clogging design for mounting on the dirty side of a fabric filter baghouse or cartridge style dust collector.

The 4-20mA transmitters are far more reliable than typical “tube” style electronic and mechanical gauges that easily clog. The transmitters feature a large, flush ceramic diaphragm that is abrasion resistant and resists clogging. Both the differential and static configuration are available in various ranges including 0-10″WC, 0-20″WC and bidirectional -5″ to +5″WC. Construction is heavy duty and all stainless steel.
