Emerson has unveiled a new line of transmitters designed specifically for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry with a compact form factor that will enable manufacturers to minimize downtime and lower production costs. 

The new line of transmitters—Rosemount 326P Pressure, Rosemount 326T Temperature, Rosemount 327T Temperature and Rosemount 326L Level instruments—are designed to operate in the hygienic environments required by food and beverage manufacturers: 

  • Rosemount 326P Pressure – For improved efficiency and safety, this transmitter is used for hydrostatic level measurement on fermenter tanks, storage tanks and silos, as well as static pressure measurements on pipes or near pumps to ensure line pressures are in tolerance.
  • Rosemount 326T Temperature and Rosemount 327T Temperature – For improved product quality and consistency, these transmitters monitor process temperature, an extremely important factor in all steps of food and beverage processing such as fermenting or pasteurizations, storage tank temperature, or ensuring your clean-in-place processes are within FDA approved limits for an effective cleaning cycle. 
  • Rosemount 326L Level – To keep product lines running and reduce downtime, this transmitter will monitor continuous level in small- to medium-sized storage, holding or buffer tanks.

All comply with 3-A and FDA specifications, and are available with nine common industry process connections to ensure the right fit for new tanks and pipe fittings, as well as capability to be retrofitted on legacy systems. The new, small transmitters also can be mounted in tighter locations common on packaging machinery. Conventional 4-20 mA outputs and IO-Link connectivity make the transmitters easy to integrate with automation systems.

Emerson, a long-time provider of instrumentation and automation systems with a high level of performance, reliability and accuracy for industries such as oil and gas and chemicals, has now leveraged that experience to offer the performance and features in the new Rosemount line required by most hygienic applications, but in more compact form factor. As a result, plants and facilities can now use Rosemount transmitters for all their applications, eliminating the need to engage with multiple suppliers to cover the full range of options. 

“This product launch solidifies our commitment to the food and beverage industry with a broader hygienic product portfolio that meets the needs of our customers,” said Ron Martin, group president of Measurement & Analytical, Emerson Automation Solutions. “Emerson focuses on listening to customers to provide products designed to address the pain points they face every day.”

These new transmitters expand Emerson’s food and beverage offering enabling manufacturers to increase product quality, consistency and safety. Emerson’s food & beverage portfolio also includes Pervasive Sensing™ solutions and Plantweb™ Insight analytics for steam traps and pumps, which allows manufacturers to harness digital transformation to further realize operational improvements.

Users can see these new instruments, along with the entire range of Rosemount products, in the Emerson booth # N-4721 at PACKEXPO International. For more information, go to www.Emerson.com/Food-Beverage.

Untitled 1 HANNOVERThe upcoming HANNOVER MESSE will again feature a special Digital Energy showcase in Hall 12, where innovative companies from around the world will present ideas and solutions for digitizing the entire energy sector.

A key focus will be on smart meters, particularly Germany's nationwide rollout, which is currently gathering pace. Nationwide rollout of smart, digital electricity meters is fundamental to further efficiency gains and, indeed, to the energy transition. Hans-Jürgen Schmitt, CEO of PCVue Solutions, explains: "Building automation systems and indeed the electric power system as a whole cannot work properly unless all electricity meters are capable of transmitting their consumption readings digitally, because only then is it possible to achieve efficient, profitable energy management." Read More

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

SmartBuilding FM 400

By Caryl Anne Crowne

Digital smart technology is changing almost every aspect of how we live, and the buildings we live in are no exception. Increasingly, instead of humans deciding how a building is heated, lit, etc., smart technology is gathering data, analyzing it and reacting accordingly while whoever is inside the building goes about their normal activities. Smart technology in buildings not only makes life more convenient for their inhabitants, it is more efficient and therefore saves on energy bills and reduces the negative impact of the environment.

Smart technology will make life easier for visitors to public facilities. For example, someone attending a meeting at a given building can have their identification badge read automatically and then get a text message informing them what room their meeting is in and how to get there. Once in the room, the temperature will already be adjusted to a comfortable level. Read More
