Alarms Process parameters (levels, temperatures, pressures, flows) are automatically controlled within a permissible range. If the parameter moves outside this range, it sometimes activates both an audible and a visual alarm. If the panel board operator fails to take corrective action, a trip may also then be activated. Trip This is a safety device that automatically shuts down a piece of equipment. It’s a fail-safe mechanism often activated by unlatching a spring-operated valve, which then closes.
Gasket This is the softer material that is pressed between flanges to keep them from leaking. Using the wrong gasket is a common cause of fires in process plants. Gaskets have different temperature and pressure ratings. 5 inch — 3 inch 80 mm 4 inch 100 mm 6 inch 150 mm 8 inch 200 mm 10 inch 250 mm The nominal size does not refer either to the outside or the inside diameter of the pipe. Pipe thickness affects the internal diameter (ID). Tube sizes Tubing sizes are entirely different from pipe sizes.
Ninety percent of the valves used in process plants are gate valves. Plug valve This valves goes from 100 percent open to shut by turning a valve 90°. The natural gas supply to your house is shut off with a plug valve. Control valve This valve is used to alter flows remotely. Normally it is moved by air pressure. A gate valve is sometimes used to control flows locally, but this wears out the valve and is best avoided. Strobe light A modern tachometer used to measure rpm of rotating equipment. Old-style tachometers measured speed by measuring vibration frequency.
