These new flowmeters provide effective measuring for compact installations and high capacity applications. Siemens also rebrands its Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) based Milltronics flowmeters into the Sitrans WF300 series.
Sitrans WF100 handles flowrates of 1 to 200 t/h (1 to 220 STPH), while the Sitrans WF200 series handles flowrates of 200 to 900 t/h (220 to 990 STPH). Sitrans WF250 is for use with air-activated gravity conveyors or air slides, typically found in cement processing. The Sitrans WF250's unique design includes an air chamber that separates the air from the material, thereby removing the impact of air on the sensing plate and providing accurate measurement. All of the Sitrans WF100 and Sitrans WF200 series flowmeters use patented triple beam parallelogram style load cells that have proven their reliability and durability for over 25 years in Siemens heavy-duty belt scales, offering superior accuracy and repeatability.
Siemens also rebrands its Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) based Milltronics flowmeters into the Sitrans WF300 series. Milltronics E-40/V-40, Milltronics E-300/v-300, and Milltronics A-40/A-300 flowmeters have been respectively rebranded to Sitrans WF330 standard-duty flowmeter, Sitrans WF340 compact flowmeter for constricted spaces, and Sitrans WF350 unique flowmeter for aerated materials. Sitrans WF300 series flowmeters have capacities of up to 300 t/h (330 STPH), and have CSA and FM approvals.
Sitrans WF300 series flowmeters use Sitrans WFS300 and 320 LVDT based sensing heads. The sensing element of these flowmeters is mounted outside the process, which protects it from exposure to harsh environments. Frictionless pivots exclude the vertical force of the measured material, and a viscous fluid damper provides mechanical damping in the event of pulsating flows.
All of Siemens Sitrans WF solids flowmeters are ideal for monitoring solid materials in cement, mineral, plastics, and food processing industries. Siemens flowmeters are unaffected by vertical force changes caused by material buildup, performing in situations where other weighing devices have difficulties such as in fly-ash or flour applications.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
