OPERATOR PROTECTION

An Investment In Safety

Thermowells

NOSHOK Thermowells are recommended wherever the process being measured is under pressure, corrosive, abrasive, or moving at a high velocity to reduce the possibility of damage to the temperature instrument and provide operator protection and safety.

  • Allows a temperature instrument to be removed and replaced without shutting down and possibly draining the process
  • 1/2 inch NPSM instrument connection, 3/4 inch process connection standard

APPLICATION INSIGHT
 

Force Measurement Solutions

IDEAL FOR APPLICATIONS
INCLUDING:

  • Cable or rod tension
  • Weight measurement
  • Overload protection
  • Clamp force
  • Fill level measurement
Welding
Conveyor Belt
Bridge
NOSHOK Series 3540 tension and compression force transducers are available in a multitude of sizes and shapes to fit almost any application, including:·
  • Manufacturing automation
  • Cable supports for bridges or high tension lines
  • Crane hoisting
  • Chain hoists
  • Conveyer belts
  • Welding machinery
  • Towing

A 316 stainless steel construction on many versions provides corrosion resistance and durability, making them ideal for harsh environments. Measuring ranges from 0 to 5 kN through 0 to 5000 kN are standard, with full scale accuracy ranging from ±2.0% (BFSL) to ±0.04%, depending on the particular version.

Several amplified or unamplified outputs are available to interface with most electrical systems. They offer high shock and vibration resistance and small temperature drift.

Seires 3540 Tension and Compression Force Transducer
 
   

IDEAL FOR APPLICATIONS
INCLUDING:

  • Hoists
  • Weighing
  • Factory Automation
Robotic Automation
Screen Printing
Cable-hoist

 

NOSHOK Series 2351 S-Type tension and compression force transducers are easily installed, and suitable for dynamic or static measurements in applications such as: 

  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Cranes
  • Cable hoists
  • Platform hoists
  • Magnetic lifts
  • Lifting & leveling systems
  • Screen/offset printing machines
  • Conveyor belts
  • Robotic automation
  • Sheet metal fabrication

A conventional configuration provides internal threads to allow force to be easily introduced via suitable swivel heads. A connector plug is on the broad side of the body, and a cable socket is angled so that cable runs parallel to the direction of force, providing space-savings and a protected installation. A special version with integrated overload protection and a selectable measuring range is also available and is intended for applications in measurement engineering.

Factory internal calibrations are performed in tension and compression — 4 to 20 mA and 0 to10 V, with a zero signal of about 12 mA and 5 V, respectively. An optional EPE01 programming unit allows selecting any of three different measuring ranges (100%, 50%, and 30%) without having to remove the force transducer. Overload protection is rated for 250% of the maximum nominal load.

TIPS TO HELP AVOID WORST
CASE ERRORS WHEN USING
DIAPHRAGM SEALS

Diaphragm Seal Thermal Error Calculations

Diaphragm Seals Thermal Error Calculations

A new NOSHOK Engineering Bulletin is now available on our website.

This reference document was designed to help predict “worst case” errors when diaphragm seals are applied to both gauge pressure and differential pressure instruments. The document contains valuable information on best practices for minimizing errors with the usage of the Type 10, 25, 25H and 30 Diaphragm Seals, including equations, fill fluid expansion factors, and diaphragm spring rates and volumes.
