AMECARE M2M Service Remotely Monitors SPECTRO ICP Spectrometers to Ensure Integrity, Avoid Downtime

SPECTRO_ARCOSKleve, Germany — March 24, 2015 — SPECTRO Analytical Instruments’ AMECARE M2M service offers the continuous remote monitoring of select SPECTRO ICP spectrometers to proactively ensure their integrity of operation and reduce the risk of downtime. The service is offered in combination with SPECTRO’s AMECARE Preventative Maintenance programs.

SPECTRO ICP spectrometers are equipped with intelligent diagnostic capabilities that report on the integrity of critical system components. With these capabilities, the cause of an instrument breakdown can be isolated and identified to speed system recovery. The technology also provides information for use with preventative intervention.

With the AMECARE M2M (Machine-to-Machine) service, diagnostic information is transmitted from the SPECTRO ICP spectrometer to SPECTRO’s central M2M server, where it is analyzed to proactively identify and flag any potential component maladjustment, degradation, or failure. If an issue is identified, the local SPECTRO service organization is alerted about the situation and the customer is contacted directly — ensuring that potential problems do not go unnoticed and are addressed proactively.

Components monitored by the M2M system include the Plasma Generator (torchbox and sample introduction system); Optical System; ICALization process; Instrument power supplies, readout and other electronic components. Benefits of the continuous monitoring include dramatically reducing the risk of instrument failure and the cost of the resulting downtime — as well as extending the life of the instrument.

User confidentially is ensured throughout the design and operation of the M2M system. The service transmits only instrument hardware and ICAL process relevant information — while analytical methods and analytical results are excluded. The system is unidirectional and secure — other than the communication handshake, information cannot be transmitted to the instrument from the remote M2M server — thus ensuring instrument encapsulation for maximum system integrity.

The AMECARE M2M intelligent diagnostic service is available on the following SPECTRO ICP spectrometers:

  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE12 / FHS12
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 165 FHE16 / FHS16
  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE22 / FHS22 / FHM22
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 160 FHE26 / FHS26
  • SPECTROBLUE FME16
  • SPECTROBLUE FMS16
  • SPECTROBLUE FME26

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

Kleve, February 4, 2015— A new whitepaper helps purchasers of new ICP-OESspectrometers through the critical — and complex — process of selecting the best appropriate plasma viewing interface for their intended applications. The paper is available to download from SPECTRO Analytical Instruments at http://goo.gl/VuH6qA.

The new whitepaper, “Selecting Your ICP-OES Analyzer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New MultiView,” recommends that when considering a new ICP-OES analyzer purchase, users should focus their selection of the plasma interface based on the range of their applications and the elements they expect to analyze. Doing so, and understanding the benefits and drawbacks of each available viewing technology — axial-view, radial-view, dual-view, or MultiView — will help determine which is the best fit for their analytical tasks. In the whitepaper, each of the differing plasma viewing technologies are defined, their strengths and weaknesses are highlighted, and examples of typical applications are provided.

The paper also discusses a recent development in plasma viewing techniques — the sequential MultiView technology  — that transcends the various disadvantages of the “dual-view” approach by eliminating the use of added mirrors or periscopes. Instead, the MultiView solution enables the user to simply shift the direction of the plasma torch into a new axial or radial orientation with a relatively simple changeover that takes about 90 seconds. As a result, MultiView offers full axial sensitivity and full radial precision without any dual-view compromises — for the functional equivalent of two dedicated, fully optimized analyzers in one. The new technology is currently available in one version of the new SPECTRO ARCOS analyzer — making the spectrometer the only ICP-OES instrument that offers both axial and radial plasma views, but without bias or compromise.

How New Solenoid Valve Technology Improves Compliance, Performance, Savings in Upstream Oil & Gas Heating Equipment: Whitepaper

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — December 15, 2014 — A new whitepaper from ASCO Numatics explains how the introduction of new solenoid valve technology in upstream oil and gas heating equipment is eliminating the problems associated with older pneumatically-operated shutoff valves — while improving regulatory compliance, performance, and savings. The paper is available to download at http://bit.ly/ASCOUpstreamOilGasWP.

Low-temperature stainless steel fuel shutoff valves are usually utilized for on/off control of fuel gas within gas fuel trains in process heating system burners. These systems are widely used by oil and gas firms as well by as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that produce gas heating equipment or burner management systems (BMSs) and controls in upstream oil and gas pipelines and tanks.

In recent years, a new generation of solenoid valve technology has dramatically advanced shutoff valve designs to provide pipeline and tank heating systems with robust, durable performance; safety; and regulatory compliance — all while increasing efficiency and productivity.

Exploring these technological advancements, the whitepaper, titled, “Breakthrough Solenoid Valve Technology for Upstream Oil and Gas Heating Equipment,” discusses:

  • How safety shutoff valves based on solenoid technology can offer substantial improvements over older air-operated models;
  • Why not all solenoid shutoff valves offer the same level of performance;
  • Important capabilities to consider when selecting a solenoid shutoff valve: operating temperatures, pressure ranges, power consumption, reliable performance, and proof of closure; and
  • How to evaluate prospective solenoid shutoff valve models closely to ensure regulatory compliance with location and application.

The whitepaper, authored by ASCO Numatics experts Bob Cadwell, Gerry Longinetti, and James Chiu, is available to download from http://bit.ly/ASCOUpstreamOilGasWP.

The whitepaper is presented ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control, and pneumatics solutions. For more information, contact ASCO Numatics at 1-800-972-ASCO (2726) or visit http://www.ascovalve.com.
