Sampling Ammonia or Refrigerant Compressors
Monitoring acid level and contaminants, especially water and sediment are important factors to consider to maintain performance in reciprocating and screw compressors. When sampling ammonia, foaming is a regular issue that is encountered. In order to avoid this, the KPQ14NP has a locknut feature.

Automating Cylinder Leak Detection for Reciprocating Compressors
The need for reliably detecting reciprocating compressor cylinder leaks is important because this gives an indication of excessive wear or damage of a consumable component, such as the valves (which account for the majority of maintenance), piston rings and packing.

Why MEMS Accelerometers Are Becoming the Designer’s Best Choice for CbM Applications
A small number of semiconductor manufacturers have overcome the noise, bandwidth and g-Range shortcomings commonly associated with MEMS sensors used in Condition-based Monitoring (CbM) by producing several medium and high-performance MEMS vibration sensors with the latter being comparable to piezo accelerometers.
