3 Reasons the PRS Excels in Solids Level Measurement

Close up view from above of quinoaTo get an accurate level measurement, a non-contact sensor has to be able to ascertain where the surface of the measured substance is. And while liquids generally “find their own level,” every solid piles in its own special way. Some lie wide, shallow, and evenly; others collect in pillars with sharp slopes. Added to the variety of the collecting shapes is the shape of the individual pieces: smooth or jagged, rectangular, round, or flat. All of this makes for chaotic readings when using reflecting sound waves or electromagnetic waves.

Unless you have a True EchoTM PRS Dual Frequency Pulse Radar Level Transmitter for Solids.

Three Reasons Why The PT-405 Excels in Harsh Environments

MONSTER TRUCKWhat is it about a pressure transducer that makes it fit for use in harsh environments? "Insanely strong," "unbelievably tough," "the grittiest of them all," and other things that might be yelled by the announcer at a monster truck rally come to mind. And while grading pressure sensors on the "Monster Truck Scale of AWESOMENESS!" might not be helpful, thinking about a pressure sensor surviving a monster truck rally gives us a good jumping off point (just like the truck ramp!) for looking at why the Series PT-405 Explosion Proof, Heavy Duty Pressure Transducer excels in harsh environments.

3 Reasons the MPX-E Chemical Excels in Aggressive Chemical Environments

Head and neck of APG's new MPX-E ChemicalAPG’s new Chemically Resistant Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter, the MPX-E Chemical, is built specifically for harsh chemical environments. While our other MPX probes, the MPX-E, MPX-R, and MPX-F, use bare 316L stainless steel for the stem, the MPX-E Chemical has a special chemical resistant coating on the stem, allowing it to perform exceptionally in situations that would, quite literally, eat a stainless steel sensor. Let’s look at a couple reasons the MPX-E Chemical works so well in such tough places.

3 Reasons APG's Tank Mesh Wireless Excels in Remote Measurement Monitoring

remote tanksOften, when we talk about Remote Monitoring, we’re talking about having access to your monitoring system when you are not on site. That is, it’s for monitoring for when you are remote from the system. But what about when it’s the system that is remote?

Whether it’s a tank several miles up hill from a control house or pressure transducers along a pipeline, there are many examples of level and pressure measurements that are a long way from any control system. And when it’s the measurements that are remote, there’s only so much an internet connection can do for you.

With that in mind, here are three reasons APG’s Tank Mesh Wireless communication excels in remote measurement monitoring situations.
