The Sensidyne SensAir CMB Poison Resistant Catalytic Bead Gas Detector


SensAir CMB, by leading gas detection equipment manufacturer Sensidyne, is an industrial grade, cost effective, fixed point gas detector with a highly poison resistant catalytic bead sensor.

The SensAir Gas Detector is a single-point device capable of detecting the presence of various gases. The detector detects gas in either ppm, %Volume or %LEL concentrations. The standard detector consists of a display board and a power supply board, housed in a heavy-duty enclosure, a sensor specifically designed to detect Oxygen, Toxic or Combustible gases, and optionally, a relay/communication board. A complete monitoring system consists of the detector and a separate read-out device & power supply capable of monitoring a 4-20 mA output and supplying 24 VDC power. There are versions of the detector for hazardous and non-hazardous areas.

SenseAir CMB Features

  • Combustible, Toxic, and Oxygen Versions Available
  • U.S./Canada/IECEx/ATEX Hazardous Area Approved
  • Rugged, Industrial, Cost Effective Design Meets a Wide Range of Application and Project Requirements
  • Robust, Fast Responding Sensors
  • Bright LED Display Model or Lower Cost Blind Model
  • Non-Intrusive Zero & Span Adjustments
  • Easy Installation and Maintenance, Ideal for Retrofit or New Applications
  • 3-wire Design with 4-20mA Output, Options for Modbus or BACnet—Both include 3 Additional Relays
  • Horizontal or Vertical Installation
  • Remote Combustible Sensor Option

Ives Equipment Celebrates Those Who Serve and Protect Our Country

Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a day of observance and celebration for those who have served in the United States military. Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day because of the November 11 Armistice that ended World War I. In 1954 it was officially changed to Veterans Day to include Veterans of all wars. This holiday honors those who took an oath to defend the United States and our Constitution, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Through the observance of Veterans Day, we remind ourselves of our Veterans patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Ives Equipment thanks our Veterans, past and present, for serving our country and protecting our freedom.

White Paper: Predicting Cavitation Damage in Control Valves

Cavitation can occur in control valves handling fluids, causing loud noise as well as damaging valve components and ultimately leading to additional costs in process plants. A standardized procedure to evaluate the destructiveness of cavitation-induced still does not exist whereas noise emission can reliably be predicted with the international EN 60534-8-4 standard. This white paper, courtesy of Samson Controls, describes a method to solve this problem by evaluating structure-borne noise in the ultrasonic range.

The Samson 82.7 Rotary Plug Control Valve

Samson 82.7 Rotary Plug Control Valve
The Samson 82.7 double eccentric rotary plug control valve is designed for standard and critical service applications, including process events such as erosion, abrasion, corrosion, cavitation, and flashing. The double eccentric rotary plug design increases flow capacities with only minor reduction in the pressure recovery factor making the design an ideal replacement for linear globe control designs even with cavitation and flashing process conditions present.

The 82.7 control valve has several standard options such as temperature extensions, heating jacket, special packing designs, noise attenuation and cavitation prevention trim sets, etc. The Vetec 82.7 can be assembled with a pneumatic, electric, hydraulic, or electro-hydraulic actuator also offered by the SAMSON group to complete the control valve construction. These control valves are designed according to the modular assembly principle, can be equipped with SAMSON GROUP actuators and valve accessories such as positioners, limit switches, and solenoid valves.
