Hydrocarbon Engineering,

At ACHEMA, SICK showcased its solutions for process technology with the slogan ‘Efficient & Clean Processes.’ The company’s appearance focused on four innovation for process monitoring and emissions measurement. With the FWE200DH dust measuring device, SICK has taken a device for measuring dust contraction in wet gases and very low dust concentration to the next level, drawing on knowledge gained from more than 50 years of dust measurement technology and practical experience.

The EUeoFID3010 was on show and is a heated flame ionisation detector for monitoring the lower explosive limit of volatile organic compounds in hot process air. It is currently the only FID gas detector on the market to be approved in accordance with European standard EN 50271:2010.

MCS300p is a multi component analyser system which is compact and for use in all manner of process applications. Particular highlights are its adjustment filter wheel, which replaces having to use expensive test gases to check drift behaviour, and the flexible use of process cells to pave the way for the introduction of small measuring ranges, the measurement of liquids, and the measurement of toxic and corrosive gases in particular.

Also SICK has the capabilities to offer the ideal solution for any level measurement application and this was demonstrated at ACHEMA. The LFP Cubic and LFP Inox level sensors combine suitability for use in any installation conditions with compatibility with various liquids and measuring environments. What makes them special is that they can be relied upon to take accurate measurements even in foaming and deposit forming liquids.


Roland Noz, Managing Director, SICK-Vertriebs GmbH said, “the trade fair was a resounding success and we are leaving ACHEMA 2015 with nothing but positive feelings. Many visitors took the opportunity to engage in a face to face discussion and find out more about the very latest developments. They were of course particularly interested to talk to us about the subject of process measurement technology.”

Industry 4.0

A major trend in process automation at the moment is Industry 4.0. Based on real time data streams, problems can be more accurately foreseen, processes can be optimised accordingly, and the time and money spent on maintenance can be reduced. Systems are thus capable of safer and more efficient operation, and their impact on the environment is lessened. However, in reality, continuous process measurement technology is still often only perceived as a means of protection, or it only becomes relevant when costs are under pressure. Continuous systems can have a surprisingly high impact on reducing costs from the start.

Klaus Halder, Head of Analysers at SICK AG said, “there are already many options available in the process industry. Increasing vertical and horizontal integration is improving maintenance and diagnostics options, for example. In turn, the use of comprehensive information is making it possible to optimise processes through error detection and diagnostics.”
