Temperature is one of the four basic process measurements (others being Pressure, Level, and Flow). Temperature measurements are used in an array of different applications. The inaccuracy of a temperature reading can have an impact on the bottom line.
Plant managers are continuous on the lookout for ways to improve the productivity and efficiency of plant processes. There is a growing need for solutions that simplify the collection of data from equipment. Yokogawa realized this demand in the process industry. Hence in 2019, the Sushi Sensor – a compact, wireless sensor for measuring vibration and temperature – was launched. This smart sensor is also optimized for Industrial IoT applications (IIoT). But what makes the Sushi Sensor special? For which assets are they applicable to and how does it realize preventive maintenance? In this blog, we’re going to answer 7 frequently asked questions about the Sushi Sensor.
Industrial compressors are often used in large chemical plants to supply headers with air for pneumatic instruments and valves. These compressors have to run at precise speeds. If they start to run too fast they can become very dangerous and expensive to repair.
