Solid State Relays

Tuesday, 13 September 2016 4:07:11 PM Australia/Sydney


SSRFor many years, the main device for controlling power was to use a contactor. This has gradually changed, and there has been wide acceptance of the use of solid state devices, whether they are solid state relays or power controllers.

Since its introduction, the SSR technology has gained acceptance in many areas that had previously been the sole domain of the EMR or the Contractor. The major growth areas have come from Industrial Process Control applications; particularly heat/cool temperature control, motors, lamps, solenoids, valves and transformers. The list of applications for the SSR is almost limitless.

Temperature management in LNG plant – Darwin

Sunday, 14 December 2014 2:55:10 PM Australia/Sydney

LNG PlantLiquefied natural gas, known as LNG, is natural gas that has been converted into a liquid for ease of transportation. Correct temperature management is critical in the production of liquefying natural gas. Pyrosales has recently supplied temperature sensors, as part of an instrumentation package, to HMA Measurement Resources, for the Ichthys Project in Darwin.  

In 2000 Inpex Australia discovered the Ichthys gas and condensate field in the Browse Basin. Located approximately 220 kilometres off the Western Australia coast, Ichthys represents the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in Australia in 40 years.
