Flame & Pilot Monitoring
The maintaining of your flares and pilots is a crucial aspect of your process. The side effects of a poor-quality flare or an extinguished pilot can be catastrophic to both your site profitability and the safety of your employees. Therefore, Vector has partnered with the industry leading flame and pilot monitoring manufacturer. We have a wide range of models that are specially made to fit your application and even have customizable solutions available.
A very common solution for temperature measurement are contact devices. However, all too often these devices are inaccurate, too slow, difficult to use, or require frequent replacement, creating process downtime and reducing productivity. Not to mention the danger of manual replacements. For many applications, infrared pyrometers are the perfect solution because they can accurately and reliably measure a target's temperature without contact.
Alerting site personnel of a critical failure or potentially hazardous situation must occur in a quick and efficient way. One of the tools many of our customers use are signals. These units serve to translate electronic signals from instruments into an audible and/or visual signal that site personnel can react to. We have partnered with E2S so that we can offer a wide range of signals that come in all shapes, sizes, colors, with many characteristics.
Heat tracing is a critical piece of process maintenance for quality, financial and safety reasons, and failure to do so can become costly. By maintaining fluid temperature, heat tracing is used to keep product flowing, pipes from bursting and to prevent potential blockages. Not only are pipes protected when heat trace technology is implemented, but valves, compressors, pumps and other instrumentation are as well.
It is no surprise that a large portion of sites require some sort of compressed air. With this being a staple need for our customers, we have partnered with Sullair to provide application experts, innovative solutions, and air compressors that are built to last.
Desiccant dryers lower the dew point of compressed air by adsorbing the water vapor present in the compressed air onto the surface of the desiccant. Adsorption continues until equilibrium is reached between the partial pressure of the water vapor in the air and that on the surface of the desiccant. These dryers continuously process compressed air by using two identical towers, each containing a desiccant bed. While one tower is on-stream drying, the other tower is off-stream being regenerated (reactivated, i.e. dried out). The towers are alternated on and off-stream so that dry desiccant is always in contact with the wet compressed air. In this way a continuous supply of dry air down stream of the dryer is possible. The switching from one tower to the other is controlled by a solid-state controller on either a fixed time basis (standard) or a demand basis (optional).
