Steam Monitoring at Major Chemical Company Relies on Power Pucks

The latest issue of Chemical Processing describes how Power Puck energy harvesters enable steam monitoring at Ashland Chemical using the Rosemount 3051 DP transmitter. This transmitter was identified as the best choice for the application, but the anticipated frequent battery maintenance caused the team to search for a longer life power solution for the transmitter, which would be located in an area with temperatures in excess of 500F and reachable only by scaffolding.

With ample heat sources near the transmitter, Ashland turned to Perpetua to discuss the need for long-life power and, as a result, chose Power Pucks to eliminate ongoing battery maintenance for the steam monitoring application.

With wireless transmitters in industrial companies commonly located in difficult to access locations, the steam monitoring application solution using Power Puck energy harvesting is applicable anywhere long-life power is desired.
