|Steel Industry Cooling Water|
|Automotive Welding |
|Cement Slurry and Additives|
Due to the non-linear characteristics of rubber, maintaining constant temperature is critical to the process. The water flow rate is transmitted to the control room, where it is balanced against RTD temperature measurements to minimize temperature excursions and optimize water consumption.
The Sparling Waterhawk
Automotive chassis are welded together by robots at an automotive manufacturing plant. To prevent overheating, cooling water is supplied to arc welders attached to the robots.
|The Sparling Tigermag|
|Two identically calibrated Tigermags monitor the cooling water flow to and from the welders. If there should be a flow variation between the incoming and outgoing flow, two different preset alarms are activated. The initial alarm is a warning — the final alarm alerts the operator to shut down the assembly line. The first alarm is a warning, the last is a shutdown of the assembly line until the problem is resolved. |
This system has saved the customer significant time and costs in the form of damage to arc welders and car chassis. Overall, it has improved the efficiency of the assembly line.
