Need Chemical Seal Assemblies
Recently, one of our process customers called with an emergency. Part of
their operation includes monitoring pressure in a vessel that processes toxic
materials for safe disposal, and their existing transmitter was failing. Without
this process, their entire operation has to stop, and there's no work-around.
They needed a pressure transmitter with a chemical seal (to protect it from
the harsh materials), and they needed it fast. Our team was able to assemble a
Honeywell smart transmitter with a diaphragm seal, and get the assembly out the
door for next-day delivery. The customer's downtime was minimal, and they were
back in operation the next business day.
When you're in a rush, look to Lesman to deliver. We can provide next-day
delivery on instrument assemblies with your choice of welded, clamped, and
sanitary diaphragm seals and the appropriate fill fluid for your application.
How? By stocking the most-requested models of Honeywell, Siemens, and WIKA
transmitters, United Electric switches, and Ametek and WIKA pressure gauges, and
assembling them on site in our filling station.
Let Nate, our factory-trained technician, take you on a guided tour
and explain how it all works.

Mechanical Switches: Replace or
United Electric's SIL-rated One Series safety transmitters are designed for
enhanced process and equipment protection and fast response in emergencies. And
even if SIL ratings aren't critical to you, it may be time to consider upgrading
from your electromechanical switches to their solid state digital counterparts.
In the July 2015 issue of ISA's InTech magazine, United Electric's Wil Chin
and Rick Frauton give you an outline that can help you determine the value of
investing in digital switches and transmitters. In "Is it time to switch
switches?", they discuss eight criteria to help guide your decision, including
- Operational visibility: The ease of finding and
diagnosing switch failures
- Implementing Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
to protect the process, people, and environment
- Protection in hazardous environments: Working
around shock, vibration, heat, and extreme pressure
- Modernization: Connecting your switch data to a
PLC or control system
If you routinely replace your mechanical switches to help avoid failure
issue, check out the article and see if it's time to consider upgrading to
electronic switches and transmitters.
