Dual mode thermometer

The dual mode thermometer (model DMT) provides local and remote temperature monitoring in one instrument. It combines the dependability of a bimetal with the accuracy of a RTD or thermocouple.  This rugged dual-sensor system puts two sensors in one thermowell and allows for easy tie-in to process control.  Both sensors are NIST traceable and easily calibrated.  The DMT seemlessly replaces existing thermometers or RTD/thermocouple assemblies.   The DMT has a standard leadtime of 5-7 days and is available in a variety of dial sizes, stem configurations, temperature ranges, output connections, and sensors.

Variable area flowmeters

Variable area flowmeters (VAFs) are the latest addition to the company's broad line of fluid system components. Used to measure liquid and gas flow rates by means of a tapered tube and float, the flowmeters provide highly accurate measurement with individually calibrated scales and a 10:1 turndown ratio. All VAFs are factory calibrated and marked to indicate the specific media, flow range, and accuracy class. The product can be calibrated and marked to customer-specific applications. Customers can choose from 10 variations of variable area flowmeters fitted with glass or metal measuring tubes.
