ABERDEEN, UK – The instrumentation projects division of Parker Hannifin has introduced at Offshore Europe 2009 a series of products to minimize potential leaks in process instrumentation.

At the core of the new equipment is the elimination of taper thread connections and associated PTFE tape or anaerobic sealant, says Parker Hannifin. The innovation lies in extending the scope of compression tube fittings throughout the instrumentation chain by integrating compression tubing ends onto valves and manifolds.

Also at the show, Parker featured its newest integrated manifold solution is the CCIMS close-coupled instrument mounting system. CCIMS provides a novel means to directly attach a differential pressure flow measurement instrument to a process line. Parker is now releasing CCIMS variants for differential pressure level measurement applications, and for static pressure measurement as well.
