    New flow rate calibration laboratory (volume flow / mass flow)

    New flow rate calibration laboratory (volume flow / mass flow)

    The ability to obtain accurate, reproducible measurements of flow rates in air-conditioning and process air systems is more important today than ever before. Meters are used in a wide range of applications from recording air consumption to ensuring constant provision of adequate ventilation, e.g. to protect employees or the environment when handling hazardous materials. In every case it is essential that the instruments used deliver reliable readings – so regular calibration is vital.

    Reduce cable spaghetti in machines

    Reduce cable spaghetti in machines

    There is no way to avoid wiring electrical drives for format changeovers. It is an area that requires detailed planning and consideration – long before the engineer starts erecting the machine. Selecting the correct wiring method can save a great deal of time and trouble during setup and servicing.

    Infinitely precise positioning with PSE, PSS, PSW positioning systems for automated format changeovers in machines

    Infinitely precise positioning with PSE, PSS, PSW positioning systems for automated format changeovers in machines

    Precise format changeovers are an important priority for machine builders in Germany. Long before the phrase "Industry 4.0" entered popular usage, machinery developers were wondering how they could implement reliable adjustment mechanisms in their products while retaining good flexibility. Automatic format changeovers offer major advantages and provide an answer to this problem.

    Working out for a good cause

    Working out for a good cause

    halstrup-walcher has found a new way of motivating its employees to exercise. For every kilometer they go, the company will donate one euro to a charitable cause. Because the goal is a total of 2000 kilometers, the maximum donation has been capped at 2000 euros. In 2015 the “Wurzelhopser”, a Nordic walking group whose name means “root hoppers”, walked 1250 kilometers, while the mountain bike group rode 1190 kilometers. In other words, employees not only met their goals – they exceeded them. The donation was divided equally between two Kirchzarten organizations: 1000 euros went to Ride2live and 1000 euros went to the Kirchzarten Bürgerstiftung (Civic Foundation). Congratulations to all of our employee athletes for their outstanding job!

    Industry 4.0 and Cyber-Physical Systems – Practical Example Format Change in Machine Building

    Industry 4.0 and Cyber-Physical Systems – Practical Example Format Change in Machine Building

    Seldom does a term from the diverse nomenclature of “Industry 4.0” produce such astonishment and incomprehension when first encountered as “cyber-physical system” or CPS for short. Before we look more closely at this term and its meaning, we will firstly consider its embedding in the context of Industry 4.0.

    Accurate measurement of energy flows and consumption in air-conditioning and process air systems – with the new Luftmeister®

    Accurate measurement of energy flows and consumption in air-conditioning and process air systems – with the new Luftmeister®

    Luftmeister® from halstrup-walcher, the measurement technology specialist, provides the missing link at the interface between energy management, air-conditioning technology and facility management: the world‘s first air meter and air energy meter records air consumption and energy flows within air-conditioning and process air systems based on high-precision mass flow and enthalpy sensors. The new instrument is factory-calibrated and thus offers maximum accuracy.

    Informing, Warning, Connecting – Safe cleanroom monitoring with touch panels

    Life-sciences companies must monitor their critical production processes with monitoring systemsOne important task of monitoring is making measured data visible in the locations where local decisions depend on them. Measuring technology and cleanroom specialist halstrup-walcher now has put the perfect solution on the market for these requirements. Specifically, this is the multi-channel process panel PUC 44, which has a touch panel in the stainless steel frame.

    Volume flow measurement comes of age

    Volume flow measurement comes of age

    The importance of volume flow measurements to air quality and operating costs has been underestimated for many years. Yet there is a growing recognition that excessive volume flow in air conditioning and process air systems sends operating costs spiralling upwards. Not only do ventilator fans consume extra energy in moving the surplus air around the system but expensive air conditioning processes (cooling, heating, humidifying or dehumidifying) generate further costs by treating unnecessarily large volumes of air.

    Helping format changeover helpers

    Helping format changeover helpers

    Modular positioning systems offer flexibility for machine tool builders – now also available with IO-Link. Everyone is talking about the high flexibility factory: particularly since the emergence of the buzzword “Industry 4.0“, growing attention has focused on developing factory concepts that enable manufacturers to create specific products for their customers with the minimum additional investment of time and money. From packaging to filling or woodworking: every year, companies are facing growing pressure to be able to manufacture new formats at extremely short notice.

    Maintenance of overpressure in cleanrooms or mini-environments

    Maintenance of overpressure in cleanrooms or mini-environments

    Maintenance of overpressure in cleanrooms or mini-environmentszoom Cleanroom operating requirements are becoming ever more stringent. The maintenance of overpressure is a good example of this process at work. The objective is to prevent any inflow of contaminated air by maintaining stable pressure cascades. Facilities with a number of cleanrooms (or plants with a number of mini-environments) create areas with different pressure levels in order to provide the greatest possible protection for the most sensitive zones. In the past, auditors could often be satisfied by showing them the pressure measurement on a large, round pressure gauge display. Much more accurate methods are required today. And this is perfectly justifiable. Uncontrolled contamination can endanger the quality of the end product and, in extreme cases, create a health risk. (...)

    Sustainable reduction of consumption instead of hidden costs – air consumption is now metered

    Sustainable reduction of consumption instead of hidden costs – air consumption is now metered

    The consumption of power and water in the building portfolio has a central role in numerous sustainability reports. This is likewise true of investment companies, real estate developers and other players in asset management. Heat energy consumption is also closely examined in the reports. On the other hand, the issue of air consumption in air conditioning systems only very rarely shifts into focus.
