Lesman News Update for September 2014
New from Siemens
Measuring Range from End of Antenna — Use more tank for your
New radar level transmitter for
In the last year, Siemens expanded its two-wire SITRANS LR250 radar
transmitter to include a standard horn antenna version, a PVDF antenna model for
corrosive and aggressive media, and a flanged encapsulated antenna for use in
chemical and sanitary environments.
Now, Siemens has done it again, adding a hygienic encapsulated antenna
transmitter for hygienic and sanitary applications in food, beverage,
pharmaceutical, and fine chemical industries. It features:
- A flush-mounted lens antenna that reduces material buildup, great
for clean-in-place applications
- Requires just a 2" minimum measuring range from end of antenna to
measure level – Lets you maximize the use of your tank
- Popular hygienic mount variations to fit your process — as small
as 2" sizes: ISO 2852 sanitary Tri-clamp, Aseptic/hygienic
nozzle/slotted nut, flange, or clamps, Tuchenhagen Varivent types F
- EHEDG (EL Class 1 and EL Class 1 Aseptic), 3A certifications, plus
FDA and USP Class VI-approved materials
- Great for smaller process tanks in food, pharmaceutical and beverage
All LR250 models comply with IEC 61508/61511 standards for functional
safety (SIL 2) and come standard with HART communications for easy
programming and monitoring, plus Siemens auto false echo suppression and
Process Intelligence signal processing for improved measurement
New from LowFlow
New Low-Droop Regulators from LowFlow
LowFlow has expanded its J-series line of stainless steel low-droop
regulators with two new models. They're designed for use with gases and liquids
in processes where high flows and low pressures are required. Both offer
stainless steel bodies and soft seats in diaphragm-operated balanced trim

Free Webinar: Safety Systems 102
Safety Instrumented System Sensors
What is the difference between SIL 1 vs. SIL 2 vs. SIL 3? What do I need to
build a safety instrumented system in my plant? If all my instruments are
SIL-compliant, does that mean my process system is safe?
Late last year, Honeywell's Bob Stahl spoke to our customers about controls
and logic solvers in Safety Instrumented Systems. With the release of United
One Series Safety Transmitters, we're diving further by discussing SIS
sensors and their role in safety systems.
In our October webinar, UE's Scott Pierce will demonstrate a common-sense
solution to complying with SIL2 applications, along with a low total cost
solution for alarms and shutdown in basic process control systems!
His 45-minute webinar on the facts vs fiction of SIL 2 certification will
cover these topics and more:
- What's a Safety Instrumented System and why is it
- Why are independent safety systems important?
- What do the industry standards (IEC 61511 and 61508)
mean to me?
- What are Safety Integrity Levels?
- Your questions answered: Live Q&A
Thursday, October 23, 9:00am Central (10:00am Eastern)
Please join us for the webinar. Or, if you're already booked then, register
anyway and we'll let you know when the recording is posted to our website.
