Vibration Calculator Available
Enter acceleration in g's and see velocity in/sec or displacement in inches or mils, and more. Temperature conversions, frequency from Hz to cpm, and many other conversions are possible. Get it at Wilcoxon's Knowledge Desk - https://wilcoxon.com/resources/vibration-calculators/vibcalc/
Fibril Analysis now available
OpTest now has a way to measure fibrils on the FQA360 pulp analyzer. Fibrils are the latest measurement of interest in pulp measurements. Before now there was no accurate or traceable way to make the measurement. OpTest's dual polarization makes an accurate measurement possible and it is now traceable to international standards. Best of all it can be added to existing OpTest FQA360 pulp analyzers. Check it out at http://optest.com/brochures/Brochure_FQA-360_LDA17_SoftwareOptions.pdf
Aluminum Extrusion Temperature Measurement
It is tough to measure the temperature of aluminum as it moves down the line as it is being extruded. Contact temperature measurement is labor intensive, dangerous and not very accurate, but very low emissivity makes using a non-contact IR sensor very susceptible to environmental problems and alloy changes. That is why the ratio-metric IR sensors were developed. However, most designs cannot measure below 1000 degF. That makes them useless for aluminum which melts at just over 1000 degF. However, Williamson's dual and multi-wavelength IR sensors can detect temperatures as low as 200 degF.
Vibration Transmitters with HART protocol
Wilcoxon now has vibration transmitters that use HART protocol. That means you can program them in the field after installation and it means you can work them into a plant wide network. Wilcoxon is the only company making a HART enable vibration transmitter.
