Riester launches the latest Stethoscope at Medicall 2014.

Riester introduced the Latest Stethoscope in the Indian Market at the Medicall 2014 show. The 12th Medicall Expo was held in Chennai from Aug 1-3. Medicall is India’s premier hospital needs and equipment exposition and the biggest of its kind in India.

Medicall brings the latest, appropriate and affordable technologies, for the benefit of all hospitals including smaller hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and physicians setting up group practice. The annual conference saw over 10,000 doctors, medical professionals and related people attending the conference and expo.

Riester’s New Stethoscope with constructed cardiophon 2.0 and duplex® 2.0 assign nothing less than a quantum leap in the quality of acoustics. Auscultation (listening to the internal sounds of the body) is significantly disturbed by interfering side noise. Therefore during the construction phase of the cardiophon2.0 and the duplex® 2.0 special attention has been paid to the design of the binaural and the ear-tips. The contact pressure of the binaural can be adjusted individually; the ear-tips are pivotable and made of extra-soft material. Altogether the ear canal is perfectly sealed against external side noise. In addition, disturbing noise due to the friction between the ear-tips and the ear will be avoided, even if the stethoscope is moving.

Riester Stethoscope

Riester stethoscopes are manufactured to an uncompromisingly high quality standard. The production of the binaural for example is automated. This guarantees a perfect production of the binaural at the ear. The chest-pieces are manufactured using latest CNC-technology to minimize any tolerances – a precondition, which allowed the novel sound pick-up system of cardiophon 2.0 and duplex® 2.0. The continuously high level of quality is guaranteed by multiple quality checks under our 1SO:9001 quality management along with the trademark German art of precision.

For such a regular but key diagnostic tool, the technology and clarity of Riester’s stethoscope got the attention of the key opinion leaders in the Medical industry of South India. Riester’s presence at Medicall through their channel partner ‘Naik Meditech’ saw the exhibition booth being visited by key doctors and professionals from the Apollo, SRM TVS group, Manipal GKNM, and many other prestigious groups in the four southern states of India.

Riester’s products are the best tools that doctor can depend on for precise diagnosis. A premium product with proven reliability, it is also user friendly. No wonder many medical professionals are staunch loyalist of Riester range of products. With the launch of the stethoscope, we intend to bring a change in the very basic tool that every doctor depend on.

Hanovia UV Ensures Safe Direct Drinking Water for Luxury Property in Jinan, China

A luxury private residential complex in Jinan, the capital city of China’s Shandong Province, has recently installed a Hanovia UV disinfection system to guarantee the safety of its drinking water. Since installing the system, the Jiezheng Lingyu Plaza has won plaudits from residents.

The prestigious, high-end luxury property aims to ‘enhance the living experience of its residents by providing innovative, smart facilities’. To this end, its developer is treating the entire complex’s drinking water system with Hanovia UV.

Hanovia’s medium pressure UV system destroys potentially pathogenic microorganisms in municipal water supplied to the complex. After UV treatment the water quality meets the strict WHO guidelines for drinking water quality, as well as the requirements of China’s National Bottled Water Standard (GB19298-2003). Hanovia’s systems are designed to remove at least 99.9% of E.coli, cryptosporidium, flagellate and other harmful microorganisms.

“Of all known disinfection technologies, only UV can effectively sterilize water rapidly and safely without any residues, and this is the main reason we chose Hanovia,” said Mr. Li, the sales manager of Qing Dao Bei Te, one of Hanovia’s Chinese business partners. “Moreover, Hanovia’s equipment is extremely compact and easy to maintain, which fits our requirements very well. In fact, offering safe drinking water for our residents has been one of the key reasons for the commercial success of this project.”

“Offering safe drinking water for our residents has been one of the key reasons for the commercial success of this project.”

Helen Zhang, Hanovia’s sales manager in China, added, “Jiezheng Lingyu is our first case study in the luxury property market in China. We are already providing safe water for many high-end hotels and office buildings across south-east Asia but, until now, in China most of our installations for building water treatment have been limited to high-end hotels and resorts. Our experience and reputation in providing high purity water for the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries in China has gained us recognition and means we are now being invited to provide water of the same high quality to private residences and public buildings.”

Crowcon’s Modular Gasmaster Control Panel Monitors up to Four Gas Detectors

Crowcon’s new Gasmaster control panel has a modular design meaning users only need purchase the required number of input modules. It can easily be extended by adding more modules at a later date. Gasmaster monitors up to four gas detectors or four fire zones, all from a single location.

Crowcon Gas Master

Video: http://vimeo.com/73465308#at=0

Simple to operate, the large multilingual LCD display shows gas levels from all detectors simultaneously and allows quick and easy system adjustment and testing from the control panel. It can operate as a stand-alone unit or interface with any alarm or visual warning devices and control systems.

In addition to standard 4-20mA-type gas detectors, Gasmaster can also be used with mV pellistor-type flammable gas detectors, which are significantly lower in cost than 4-20mA-types as they have no internal electronics. Sensor calibration is performed via the Gasmaster user interface: once commissioned, mV pellistor-type detectors do not need to be accessed until the sensor needs replacing – usually 3-5 years after installation. In addition, power to mV pellistor-type detectors is automatically cut if the gas reading exceeds 95% of the gas’ LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) to prevent sensor damage.

Gasmaster provides as standard a wide range of analogue, relay and Modbus outputs and a ‘calibration due’ warning informs the user when a service is due on a gas or fire detector. An IP65 enclosure also means the control panel can be installed in potentially wet areas without requiring the additional cost of high-IP enclosures.

Key industries include:
• Refineries
• Petrochemical, chemical and pharmaceutical plants
• Water and wastewater treatment
• Gas storage and distribution
• Power generation
• Manufacturing processes (e.g. car manufacturing plants)
• Universities and research facilities
• Local authorities

Wireless Gas Detection with Crowcon’s Detective Net

Wireless module works with Crowcon’s Detective+ transportable gas detectors.

Crowcon’s new Detective Net wireless module allows up to 25 Detective+ gas detectors to be linked without cables. It is ideal for use in the oil, gas, petrochemical and utility industries.

Wireless Gas Detection with Crowcon's DetectiveNet

Wireless Gas Detection with Crowcon’s DetectiveNet

The Detective+ is a free-standing, transportable multigas monitor that can be used individually or in groups to monitor up to four gases at once. By using the Detective Net module, up to 25 Detective+ units can be linked wirelessly and positioned as much as 100 metres apart. Should wireless connection between two of the detectors weaken, the RICOCHET® wireless network will ‘self-heal’ and automatically re-route communications via alternative devices. This creates a ‘mesh’ type network, ensuring greater reliability in safety-critical situations.

Over a dozen gas sensor options are available with the Detective+, including infrared sensors for flammable gas that are immune to the poisoning effects which plague standard flammable gas sensors. If a dangerous gas level is detected, the Detective+ unit warns with a wailing 104 dBA siren and flashing, high intensity LED beacons which are visible from all angles. A signal is also sent to all the other units, alerting workers to the danger. In addition Detective Net transmits other fault information such as loss of signal or low battery power.

If the signal is very weak, for example because of thick metal bulkheads, Detective Net can act as a repeater to boost the signal between units. A cable can even be used to extend the reach of an individual Detective+ unit and put it in a position with a stronger wireless signal – this is especially useful in cramped, confined spaces.

The Detective+ is indeed ideal for confined spaces, ensuring safe gas levels before workers enter and monitoring continuously during welding and other repair work. With 60 hours of battery operation, work can go on with a minimum of detector recharging, keeping shutdown time as short as possible. In commissioning new liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, the Detective+ can be placed along the pipelines to check for leaks, minimising explosion risks.

The rugged tripod construction and raised profile keeps the Detective+ sensors away from obstructions and surface water. An integral safety cage gives extra protection in the event of the unit being overturned in chaotic work areas. An operating temperature range of -20°C to +40°C assures reliable detection in a variety of environments. The units are Class 1 Division1 Groups A, B, C, and D approved. Optional folding legs facilitate compact storage and transportation.

Smith Flow Control’s technology makes valve interlock adjustment effortless.

Trapped-key interlocks offer enhanced safety and efficiency for the most difficult process management challenges. Mounted directly to valves, interlocks ensure a process only happens in the correct operational sequence.

GLM - Handwheel operated

GLM – Handwheel operated

Trapped-key Interlocks for handwheel-operated valves are different from those for lever-operated valves, as the latter only have a finite movement (normally 90 degrees). Interlocks on handwheel-operated valves, however, usually require several full revolutions between the locked open and locked closed positions.

Mechanical Interlocks

Mechanical Interlocks

Because of this, handwheel operated interlocks need to be able to ‘count’ the number of handwheel turns in order to release keys in the required open and/or closed positions. Similarly, with gate and globe valves, the closed position can vary through the effects of valve seat wear. After a period of use, the closed position on gate and globe valves may have altered. This can mean that when the valve is shut tight, the interlock (closed) key will not release as the valve has travelled past the original set key release position.

Smith Flow Control’s (SFC’s) GL Interlocks are ideal for this scenario as they can be adjusted in-situ in a matter of minutes simply by operating the valve back to the original key release position in two easy steps:

1. Using the special tamperproof tool (provided), the interlock cover is removed and the set screws adjusted
2. The valve is then operated again to its shut tight (closed) position and the screws are retightened (reset) in the new position

This simple in-situ adjustment feature is unique to SFC’s GL interlock and provides a fast and efficient method of maintaining valve interlocks on site.
