Eastern Reliability

Instrumentation & Expansion Joints

Many manufacturing and automation processes require precise control of many relevant factors, including mass, flow, pressure, level, temperature, pH, density, or humidity. Our industrial instrumentation products offer you a solution to control various factors and to optimize the fine-tuning of your processes using our optical technology, which is characterized by its high quality and performance and offers you a comprehensive performance portfolio. We integrate these products into your systems so that you can use this industrial instrumentation technology to make your plant more efficient.

Level Switches

Optical Level Sensors

Electro-Optic Level Switches are low-cost, compact, optical level sensors with built-in switching electronics. With no moving parts, these small units are extremely accurate for point level detection in high-stress environments, especially where dependability and economy are a must. Solid state-switching ensures dependability over long service life as they can withstand extreme temperatures, pressure, vibration, and shock. While these sensors are less accurate for continuous level measurement, they do offer ±1 mm repeatability with no recalibration needed.

Float Level Switches

Liquid levels can be easily monitored using float level type switches. Level control schemes can be implemented with at least two float switches with one as the minimum and one as the maximum contactor. Float type switches are more suitable than magnetic level switches for some applications and can be used with extremely aggressive, hot, soiled, or viscous media depending on the material that is used in the float.

Magnetic Level Switches

Magnetic level switches are used for the monitoring and controls of liquid levels in vessels and are customized per customer application. They perform by having a float (or several) that contain a ring magnet that switches the sealed contact as it passes over the tube. These switches are advantageous due to their simple installation, long service life due to sealed contacts, and the fact that they can be installed on the top of bottom of the vessel.

We also have experience at integrating the following level switches types in our applications:

  • Conductive Level Switch
  • Microwave Level Switch
  • Capacitive Level Switch

Temperature Sensors and Switches

Temperature is one of the most common measurement parameters used for monitoring and control in process industries. We represent and specify the newest temperature sensing products their technical advances will impart higher a degree of safety and reliability to process plant operation. Temperature measurement remains high on the list for operational excellence throughout the plant and using new technologies results in improved safety and lower installation and maintenance costs.

The products that will be used for your application are dependent on many factors including:

  • Temperature in the sensing area as well as the environmental conditions expected to exist between the sensor and instrumentation.
  • Distance between the sensor and instrumentation.
  • Type of interconnections the customer prefers.
  • What type of wiring system is currently in place (if not new)?

We have experience in specifying and providing:

  • Bi-Metal and Thermal Reed Temp Switches
  • Digital Temperature Switches
  • Thermostats
    • Bulb & Capillary
    • Rod - Using liquid-filled probes made of copper
  • Glass, Stem, Bi-Metal, Shaft, and Safety Thermometers
  • Digital and Infrared Thermometers
  • Sensors - RTDs

Flow Meters

A flow meter is a device used to measure the volume of liquid flowing through it and are sometimes referred to as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, flow rate sensor, etc. Eastern Reliability focuses on flow meters that measure liquids flowing through a pipe to improve the precision, accuracy, and resolution of fluid measurement for a process.

  • Vortex Flow Meter

Additional Products

Along with all the products listed above, Eastern Reliability also has experience with pH and Redox measuring instruments, conductivity measuring, density meters, pressure gauges/sensors, and many others.

Expansion Joints

Expansion Joints not only are required to validate the warranty for any fitting side mounted to a tank, but they also result in improved plant safety and increased mechanical integrity of equipment. As specifically engineered products that are inserted in a rigid piping system:

  • Absorb movement
  • Improve thermal stability
  • Relieve system strain due to thermal change, load stress, pumping surges, wear of settling
  • Compensate for misalignment
  • Eliminate electrolysis between dissimilar metals

Expansion Joint

As part of our tank system designs, we utilize metallic and non-metallic expansion joints along with flexible couplings as they carry safety ratings that exceed product specifications in areas such as pressure and movement.

The thing to keep in mind is that not all expansion joints are the same and that every application will require a somewhat different expansion joint configuration to ensure that it performs correctly. These are not products that you should buy off-the-shelf without consulting a company that can assist you is specifying the correct product.
