Eskom reaps returns on DPI investment

Eskom, Africa`s largest power generating corporation, has eliminated costly voltage dips, which were once an ongoing problem, through a system-wide dip-proofing project.

Temperature indicator

Irreversible Temp-Plate(TM) heat sensitive indicators can be custom-made for unique maintenance, operational and quality-assurance applications. Customer can select size, shape, temperature range, number of sensors, color and labeling. They are available in miniature size--as small as 0.19-inch diameter and 0.01 inch thick--to allow easy installation. The decals have a calibrated accuracy of plus or minus1 percent from 80 F to 1,100 F and are traceable to national standards.

Dual-channel control

The Series 988D vertical 1/8 DIN dual channel process control and the horizontal 1/8 DIN Series 989D offer two channels of PID control in a single package. With up to six outputs, the control is designed to handle most applications where multiple processes need to be controlled. Two analog inputs accept 11 different thermocouple types, RTD and scaleable process inputs. The system`s single event input allows the operator to reset an alarm remotely, turn control outputs off, or lock out the front

Dorman Diesels wins German Telekom contracts

Dorman Diesels Ltd. has garnered three German Telekom contracts for power generation engines in Stuttgart, Frieburg and Magdeburg, with a combined order value of more than (US)$647,000. Dorman was in competition with traditional German manufacturers for the contracts, which required ISO 9001 Quality Assurance registration and demonstration of technological advances. The engines chosen exceeded TA-LUFT emissions regulations.

Auxiliary relay

A compact auxiliary relay is available to contact multiplication in protection and control environments with instantaneous and time delayed auxiliary functions. The plug-in rapid wire integrated multi-mount auxiliary (PRIMA) consists of a relay and socket and a range of mounting options and three types of terminal for wiring flexibility.

Martensitic stainless steel

The ARCLOK 1000 is a high-strength, martensitic stainless steel. It has a minimum yield strength of 950 MPa and three times the resistance to both cavitation and erosion of conventional martensitic stainless steels. The new steel is lighter in weight and offers increased fatigue strength.

Opacity monitor

The EMS 1301 double pass opacity monitor uses an advanced multi-lens transceiver with electronically modulated lamp and photopic response. EMS 1301 is used to measure small intermittent source boilers or very large continuous source boilers or precipitators. Product is economically priced for use in applications that require accuracy, dependability and simplicity without high cost.

Plug valves

Sleeved plug valves offer two-, three-, four- and five-way valves. Valves have reduced and full port designs, along with screwed, weld and flanged ends. They are available in a choice of four levels of fugitive emissions control. Valves reduce maintenance, repair and replacement costs, and provide tight shutoff.

Control valve

The Mark One-Power(TM) control valve offers superior performance in liquid and gaseous services while permitting easy, fast and inexpensive maintenance. Product controls high temperature and pressure applications, and demanding precise throttling. The Mark One-Power is available in five body configurations: globe, angle, three-way, expanded outlet and Y-body, and five end connections including buttweld, socketweld, NPT, separable and integral flange. Features include spring-cylinder actuator for
