The measurement variable of liquid level, particularly the hydrostatic measurement of liquid level, has got a new look: Both level measurement probes, the Maera S25 and S28, are additions to the Jumo product range. The brochure and Internet presentation provides a quick overview of both the new and the established. Level measurement probes are used for hydrostatic liquid level measurement in tanks or for determining the level in open waters. There are so many products and variants available on the market that it is often difficult to make the right choice for a given application.
The vast number of different variants at Jumo are simply and clearly set out in the new “Level measurement probes – hydrostatic level and liquid level measurement” brochure at http://br-levelprobes.jumo.info and in the product comparison at http://pc-levelprobes.jumo.info. Starting from the application, all the level measurement probes can be delivered complete with different cables, materials and process connections in the various price segments, as well as with approval, integrated overvoltage protection or temperature sensor options. Clear distinguishing features and application examples have been put together in tables to ensure that the right product can be quickly and conveniently found by taking the medium, its temperature and the measuring range into consideration. pb

Light work of heavy weights
Transporting heavy loads on straight conveyor lines requires high-performance drives and makes serious demands of traction mechanisms and slide tracks. Denipro‘s Denirug offers a solution which spreads the load onto a roller carpet. It has a modular structure and can be set up in any length and width. “We tested denirug on a test rig,“ reports Dr. Jens Sumpf, a member of the scientific team at Conveyor Technology Professorship at TU Chemnitz. “The results showed excellent functionality and virtually no wear.” Because of the extremely low friction coefficients of 0,03 to 0,05, he assumes that the new product can make drive energy savings of up to eighty percent depending on the application. “In these tests, the conveying speed was twenty meters per minute, but we have also performed successful testing at 120 meters per minute,” says Sumpf. The elements are plastic and therefore require no lubrication or maintenance. Denirug was tested with a product mass of up to 600 kilograms, resulting in a maximum distributed load of 240 Kilonewton per Squaremeter. Similar products showed signs of melting after around 35 to 40 Kilonewton per Squaremeter. Denipro believes this product could be used in the automotive industry where belts could be supported in vehicle assembly or skids where masses of up to two tons are transported. pb
