Ludeca has introduced the Vibxpert II Balancer, the latest addition to the Prueftechnik family of portable measurement devices. The rugged yet lightweight device is designed for field balancing of rotating machinery in one plane or two planes. Unbalance is one of the most common causes of increased levels of vibration in plant equipment. The balancer offers an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, which leads the user through the balancing procedure step-by-step. Its large and bright color display facilitates the presentation and interpretation of the balancing data.
Krohne's new Optiflex 2200 C/F level meter for liquids and solids features software-based dynamic parasite rejection (DPR) technology that eliminates false reflections caused by environmental disturbances and product build-up. The 2-wire device is the newest addition to the company's time domain reflectometry (TDR) guided radar level meters. The meter is designed for use in tank and silo applications in the chemical industry, as well as in the oil and gas, energy, wastewater, mining or pulp and paper sectors.
