An illustrated brochure from ABB describes the company's new line of single and dual-loop universal process controllers and indicators.
An illustrated brochure from ABB describes the company's new line of single and dual-loop universal process controllers and indicators. Called ControlMaster, this new generation of process control instruments is said to be more intuitive, easier to operate, and significantly more powerful in use. The brochure notes that each instrument provides a comprehensive display of process status, using thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal technology. Also, a simple user interface delivers clear text prompts that simplifies installation, commissioning, and operation.

Oil in water measurements
A White Paper entitled, "Emulsion-Breaking Techniques to Ensure Accurate Oil in Water Measurements," was recently published by Wilks Enterprise. Certain water samples, such as those containing detergent, may form an emulsion when oil in water extraction into a solvent is done. In order to ensure an accurate measurement, the emulsion must be broken. The White Paper discusses six emulsion-breaking techniques that can be used for reducing an emulsion in order to obtain valid oil in water measurements -- whether the analysis is done by infrared, gravimetric or UV techniques. All of the emulsion-breaking methods discussed in the paper are usable with portable infrared analyzers, such as the Wilks InfraCal TPG/TPH Analyzers, and for virtually any type of oil in water measurements, including fat, oil and grease (FOG) wastewater discharges.
