Need Chemical Seal Assemblies Tomorrow?

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 Upgrade?

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 these:

  • 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.
