 Case Studies  
Large-scale energy chain breathes life into Port of Felixstowe’s gigantic rail traverser
An igus energy chain system has recently been designed into the largest capacity rail traverser in the UK. Built by heavy rail lifting manufacturer Mechan Ltd, the traverser moves freight locomotives between eight lines at the Port of Felixstowe’s new North Rail Terminal. With its pivotal role within the Port’s rail network, the traverser’s reliability is paramount, while its environment presents a number of challenges.

TeePlug from Hylec-APL helps to protect Windsor Castle from flooding
Hylec-APL has supplied IP68 TeePlug connectors for use on a weir at the head of the Jubilee River. The river, which is man-made, is used to divert water away from the Thames and prevent flooding around Windsor, Eton and Maidenhead. The TeePlugs have been specified to facilitate quick replacement of the transducers which monitor the position of the weir's hydraulic cylinders; helping to ensure the flood defence's reliability.

Armacell insulation materials protect hot and cold water pipes against unacceptable temperature fluctuations which can occur during the summer when the risk of legionella also rises. During holiday periods water stagnates in pipework, making HVAC and plumbing systems an ideal breeding ground for hazardous bacteria.

Sensors 101 - Understanding Sensors within a fluid control system
In the world of fluid control systems today, very little can be achieved without the raw data supplied by sensors, which need to be carefully specified to ensure that they are suited to their application. These sensors can help facilitate a variety of tasks from displaying process information and performing control functions to operating alarms, but each one has to communicate information to a process controller.

Kieran Bennett, of process control specialist Bürkert, looks at the range of sensors available, the different technologies used in their design and how the application affects the specification.
