Vibration measurement, proximity probes.

Vibration systems use transducers which convert mechanical motions into electrical signals. What is Vibration? Rapidly changing too and fro motion either in vertical or horizontal of an object with reference to a centerline is called vibration. Vibration is a mechanical phenomenon. A vibration monitoring system is used to monitor the health of a machine in… Read More Vibration measurement, proximity probes.

Common Errors in Measuring Instrument Calibration: Zero, Span, Linearity, and Hysteresis.

Instrument calibration is a procedure that certifies the measurement obtained by an instrument is compatible with what is expected and is suitable for use, to avoid deviations in the analysis of processes and reduce costs. In general, it comprises comparing the results obtained by the instruments with those obtained by standards, under pre-established and controlled… Read More Common Errors in Measuring Instrument Calibration: Zero, Span, Linearity, and Hysteresis.

What is a Submersible Pump? Working Principles, Types, Advantages, and Disadvantages.

Submersible pumps, as the name indicates, are pumps that work completely submerged in a liquid. The motor, which is coupled inside the pump body, is hermetically sealed, so that water enters it. A submersible pump is a device that works under the liquid to be pumped since it allows the creation of a significant force.… Read More What is a Submersible Pump? Working Principles, Types, Advantages, and Disadvantages.

What are the Types of Test signals?

For many practical control processes, the input drives are unknown in advance, unlike electrical circuits and communication systems. In many cases, the actual inputs to a control system generally can vary randomly with respect to time. A designer faces a challenge since it is difficult to design a control process that works satisfactorily with any… Read More What are the Types of Test signals?

Types of wear to which a Control Valve is exposed

In the study of control valve failure analysis, it is necessary to have a detailed knowledge of the wear mechanisms since the detachment of material from a mechanical component can vary remarkably, from very intense to insignificant. It means a total loss of efficiency or complete utility of the item. The wear mechanisms that affect… Read More Types of wear to which a Control Valve is exposed

What is Rotameter? Principle, Classification, Advantages, and Disadvantages.

Description of Rotameter Rotameter is also called a variable area flowmeter. It is a type of flowmeter that measures flow rate or volumetric flow rate. It is defined as the amount of flow per unit of time that circulates through a section of a tube. The rotameter is a conical tube, usually made of glass,… Read More What is Rotameter?
