Position monitoring on loading systems - Switchgear for extreme applications

Petrol, natural gas and liquid gas are typical products handled using loading systems manufactured by Emco Wheaton. These loading systems are frequently to be found at the end of a process chain, at production sites or logistics stations like fuel depots or, in "ship to shore" applications, at ports.

Emergency pull-wire switches - Machine safety in extreme environments

At its Neuhof-Ellers site near Fulda, the company K+S Kali mines raw potash and magnesium salts at depths of down to 800 metres. The atmosphere in the flotation plants which separate the potassium chloride from the rock salt and other mineral salt constituent parts is extremely corrosive. Trust is therefore placed in "Extreme" emergency pull-wire switches which have been thoroughly tested and which allow the plants to be switched off very fast should a dangerous situation occur.

Just about indestructible - Switches for extreme environments

Ambient conditions can be extreme, whether in opencast mining or fertiliser production. Dust, damp, aggressive substances and vibrations all take their toll on equipment. Robust and resistant switches are therefore needed if human and machine safety are to be guaranteed. steute Technologies has recently extended its range of Extreme products to include a new emergency pull-wire switch and a new belt alignment switch.

"For us it is all about the Extreme". Switches face hard times on the island of Helgoland

Cold, heat, UV rays, saltwater: on the island of Helgoland in the North Sea, the conditions are tough. For one year, steute tested its switchgear products there. In conversation with P&A, steute representatives Rainer Lumme, Product Manager Extreme, and Carsten Both, Head of Industrial Development, explain how this came about, what results the tests produced, and why such tests are becoming increasingly important.
