Soft seated gate valves for HDPE Pipe PN 16

Soft seated gate valves in ductile iron GGG50 with EPDM lined wedge and socket ends are suitable to be installed directly on HDPE pipes for water supply systems. These valves are suitable for drinking water applications, being coated with epoxy powder painting, not toxic. This kind of gate valves are inside screw, with non rising stem in AISI 420, wegde EPDM vulcanized and sliding rails on the body, for a low friction movement. The gate valves for HDPE pipe are equipped with a brass compression ring that allows installation on the pipeline, locking the pipe and avoiding any movement. The soft seated gate valves are full bore, have no pressure drops, with the EPDM covered wedge that is not affected by corrosion and that doesn’t need any maintenance. In case of need, o-rings on the stem can be replaced with the valve in the pipeline and in complete open position. Soft seated gate valves in ductile iron can be installed above or under the ground level, or in chambers. Standard execution is by handwheel, on demand request of cap top, extension spindle, protective tube, T key and surface box for typical requirements in water supply and distribution systems.

What is Stability and Why is it Important in Semicon Industry?

What is Stability and Why is it Important in Semicon Industry?

Stability is defined as a change (or lack of change) in accuracy over a period of time.

Stability reduces out-of-calibration issues. If a measurement device drifts out of calibration, it can be measured incorrectly and risk exposure of personnel or patients to harmful microorganisms in pressure monitoring applications in healthcare settings.

If pressure, temperature, and relative humidity (RH) are not maintained properly in semiconductor manufacturing areas, it may result in infiltration of dust and particulates from not maintaining a proper differential pressure, a spike or drop in RH, or a change in temperature, which may damage products being manufactured.

Dwyer’s new Series RPMC StabiliSENSE™ critical room pressure monitor provides the advanced features, high accuracy, and ranges necessary for use with pharmaceutical compounding areas and semiconductor manufacturing facilities.

The Series RPMC StabiliSENSE™ critical room pressure monitor can be flush or surface mounted in the same size diameter hole as a Magnehelic® gage. This simplifies upgrades from a Magnehelic® gage to the new room pressure monitors. It comes standard with two independent SPDT relays and a 4-20 mA analog output. The RPMC contains a capacitance cell pressure sensor, providing a high degree of accuracy and long-term stability.

The Series RPMC is a complete system allowing for access to pressure, security, calibration, and alarm setup. Visual indication, an easy-to-clean stainless steel bezel, and passcode protection make pressure monitoring in critical applications easier than ever.

Importance of Sensor Stability in Clean Rooms

Importance of Sensor Stability in Clean Rooms

Importance of Sensor Stability in Clean Rooms

The purpose of a clean room is to limit the number of particulates in a clean space. These particulates can be any type of sub-micron particles, such as dust, pathogens, chemical vapors, or moisture droplets. Clean room manufacturing areas are used by many industries to produce semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, etc.

Maintaining a proper differential pressure between the clean room and the exterior area is the most crucial aspect of keeping the clean room “clean”. To understand why sensor stability is important to these critical applications, it is important to also understand why a pressure difference is needed.

Why is a Pressure Difference Needed in Clean Rooms?

A pressure difference between a clean room and the anteroom, or the room immediately outside the clean room, is needed to ensure low to no infiltration of unwanted particulate matter into the clean room.

If a clean room is kept at a positive pressure in relation to the anteroom, it will force all air (and particulate matter) out to the anteroom. If you have ever walked into a building and noticed a draft coming from inside the building to the outside while blowing the door open, you have experienced a building under positive pressure in relation to the outside. In this case, the door was likely difficult to close because of the high-pressure differential.

Clean rooms operate under the same conditions, but typically at a much lower differential pressure between the anteroom and the clean room (around 0.02-0.05” w.c. depending on the level of the clean room). This small pressure difference between the rooms is enough to keep out all the unwanted particulates.

How are Sensors Tied into Clean Rooms?

Positive pressure in clean rooms is maintained by a fan, or blower, typically within a VAV (variable air volume) system that increases the amount of air provided into the clean room. The more air provided into the room, the higher the air pressure in it.

A differential pressure sensor, like a room pressure monitor, room status monitor, or a simple differential pressure transmitter, measures the pressure difference between the cleanroom and anteroom. It then provides the measurement to a DDC (direct digital controller) that controls the VAV system. If the pressure is too low, the VAV system will provide more air; if the pressure is too high, the VAV system will limit the amount of air it pumps into the room.

Since the pressure that is to be maintained is relatively narrow (0.02-0.05” w.c.), it is important that the differential pressure sensors maintain their accuracy over time. In other words, the sensors need to have excellent stability.

If stability is not maintained and the pressure sensor drifts, becoming inaccurate over time, the VAV system will either provide too much or too little air. As a result, the positive pressure of the clean room can be compromised. Particulates will then be able to enter the clean room and damage or destroy the goods being manufactured in that clean environment.

What Other Parameters Need to be Maintained in Clean Rooms?

Depending on the type of clean room and specific application, other environmental parameters besides differential pressure will also likely need to be maintained. Additional parameters could include:

  • Temperature
  • Relative Humidity (RH)
  • Air Changes per Hour (ACH)
  • Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Levels


Using sensors with high stability will help to ensure clean rooms meet quality and safety standards. Stability will help ensure that safe levels for all clean room applications, including pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and medical device manufacturing, are maintained.

BinMaster 3DLevelScanner™ Models

BinMaster 3DLevelScanner™ Models

The 3DLevelScanner uses acoustics-based technology. Three transducers send extremely low frequency sound waves to the material surface, making a sound that sounds like chirping crickets. The sensor receives echoes back from multiple points on the surface which are converted to distance measurements.

Advanced algorithms in the software assign each measurement an XYZ coordinate that is mapped into a 3D image. Optional software generates a graphical representation of the material topography in the bin. Surface variations are accounted for in volume calculations.

BinMaster 3DLevelScanner™ Models

M Maps and Measures

The M model takes measurements within a 70° beam angle. It reports the highest, lowest, and average level. 3DVision software provides highly accurate level and volume data.

MV Adds 3D Image

The MV has all the capabilities of the M model, but also generates a 3D representation of the material surface. Plants that work with materials that bridge, rat hole, or build up along bin walls may prefer to add 3D imagery.

MVL Measures Big Bins

The MVL provides volume accuracy in large diameter bins. Mount multiple scanners in strategic locations to account for surface variations across the material surface. The software synchronizes the level data from all sensors to create a single 3D image and calculate bin volume.

S for Average Volume

The S model determines the average volume of stored materials based on a 30° beam angle. It is used to measure materials in silos up to 14’ diameter and 200’ tall.

RL Single-Point Measurement

The RL model measures at a 15° beam angle and reports a single distance. It excels in harsh, high dust environments and problematic low dielectric materials. It provides reliable level data and is most frequently used in narrow silos or silos with structure.

HT for High Temps

With an operating temperature up to 356°F (180°C), the HT model is suited for materials like clinker, fly ash, frac sand, and alumina.
