ITM presents Superheater Overheat Protection (SHOP) technology at BLRBAC Spring 2017 Meeting

ITM’s president Tim Carlier (tim.carlier@iTestSystem.com) is presenting its Superheater Overheat Protection (SHOP) technology at the Spring 2017 Black Liquor Recovery Boiler Advisory Committee (BLRBAC) Meeting  in Atlanta, GA on April 12th.  SHOP helps boiler operators avoid short term overheat failures of recovery boiler superheater tubes.

ITM will also introduce new boiler and plant optimization technologies/systems that their partners have used to streamline processes.

Conference details can be found at http://www.blrbac.org/sites/default/files/S2017.pdf

ITM Strain Gauging Services

Rosette strain gaugeQuantifying stress, strain and force within a structure using real world strain gauge measurements is commonly used to verify FEA models and estimate a component’s fatigue life.  Our engineers and technicians have planned and implemented challenging strain gauge installations for our customers around the globe.  Information from these strain gauge installations has allowed our customers to validate their designs and improve their product’s reliability.

AF & PA Conference 2017: ITM is presenting new boiler safety and energy savings technology

afpa-logoCome watch ITM’s president Tim Carlier (tim.carlier@iTestSystem.com) present on a new boiler safety system, Hopper Ash Level Thermocouple (HALT) monitoring system, at the 2017 American Forest & Paper Association (AF & PA) Meeting and Conference in Atlanta, GA this February.  Tim will describe how this system predicts Ash Hopper pluggage and warns boiler operators when a dangerous situation exists.

ITM will also introduce new boiler and plant optimization technologies/systems that their partners have used to streamline processes.

ITM adds NI-9217 compatibility to iTestSystem

We are pleased to announce that the NI-9217 resistance temperature detector (RTD) analog input module can now be used with iTestSystem and NI CompactDAQ.  The NI-9217 features 4 analog inputs, 24-bit resolution, and an aggregate sampling rate of 5 S/s (1.25 S/s per channel) in high accuracy mode.  The high accuracy mode has built in 50/60 Hz noise rejection and less than a 1 °C accuracy error over its entire operating temperature range.

Tip: Since the NI-9217 is the first CompactDAQ RTD module on the compatibility list,  a new RTD channel type was added to iTestSystem.  Right click on Channels in the project tree and select Create New > RTD.

Happy Holidays – 2016

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I would like to take some time to thank our employees and partners for making this year successful.  Here’s to a happy holiday season and an exciting 2017. Cheers!

Thank You!

Save steam costs with new ITM technology – SFD

With steam costs reaching an estimated $5,600 a day — or roughly $2 million a year — for sootblowing operations in a single boiler, imagine the savings plant operators could achieve by optimizing sootblowing.

Sootblower Fouling Detection (SFD) is a new ITM technology for identifying when and where to clean boiler steam tubes.  Learn more about SFD by watching this video.
