Manufacturers Across UK & Europe In Joint Call For Brexit Deal To Reduce Risk Of Economic Shocks

CategoryIndustry News   

Groups representing two hundred thousand manufacturers across Europe and the UK have called on EU and UK negotiators to agree a Brexit deal that supports trade and reduces the risk of economic shocks. The call comes as Britain prepares to trigger Article 50, sparking concern amongst industry leaders that no deal or a bad deal could be a lose-lose for both parties.

Brussels-based Manufacturing group, CEEMET – which includes the UK’s EEF along with French, German and Italian manufacturing organisations – has called on both sides to ‘affect a stable and orderly exit, preserving as much as possible the often complex and delicate trading relationships that are in place.’

Uwe Combüchen, Director General of CEEMET, said: “If we are to avoid a ‘lose-lose’ outcome for European manufacturing, it is essential that all parties work towards a reasonable deal for industry, while ensuring the integrity of the single market. Simply put, a negotiation which produces no deal would be highly damaging for industry in the EU as well as the UK.

“There must be pragmatism on all sides. It is not in the EU or the UK’s interests to lead industry to cliff-edge decisions, which will ultimately damage investment opportunities and business confidence.”

Terry Scuoler, CEO of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, says: “These negotiations are likely to be amongst the toughest and most critical the UK has ever been involved in. It is imperative that the Government is focussed on securing a deal that will enable both British and European businesses to flourish, investment and innovation to continue and trade to flow. This will be the lifeblood that is key to the UK’s future economic success – we cannot afford to see it disrupted or turned off in mid flow.

“As a priority, we now want to see the Government seek early agreement with the EU over the future of EU citizens living and working here in the UK and their British counterparts similarly living and working in Europe. Not only is this the right thing to do, but it will send out a clear and reassuring signal to EU workers and the many British businesses that rely upon their skills to drive innovation and growth in the UK.
“Above all, it’s time for the Government to demonstrate its support and understanding of business by striving to deliver a pragmatic and realistic deal. Forget all notion of crashing out of the EU without a deal and leaving business to pick up the pieces – focus instead on an orderly and smooth transition, the continuation of barrier-free trade, minimisation of costs and ongoing access to required talent and skills. Nothing less will do.”

New Light-weight Precision Flowmeter Suits Process Skids

CategoryFlow Measurement & Control   


Recent developments by Bürkert have enabled its ground-breaking precision liquid flowmeter, FLOWave, to be incorporated into process skids providing a lightweight, cost effective, solution for hygienic applications.

The development of process skids is a competitive enterprise but there are several aspects of the design that cannot be compromised, especially if they are destined for pharmaceutical applications. The basic principles of process skids require them to be compact assemblies that remain portable. In many applications, the process requirements demand hygienic conditions throughout the skid that can be maintained using clean-in-place (CIP) or steam-in-place (SIP) as well as reliable accuracy in the process itself.

The business aspect of skid manufacture requires the components to be cost effective as well as easy to assemble and connect to the rest of the manufacturing process. Component prices will always affect the initial cost of the skid but operational running costs also need to be considered. These include power consumption as well as any time required to remove components that are not compatible with CIP/SIP hygienic processes.

Precise flow measurement, especially in hygieni c applications has been the preserve of Coriolis flowmeters for a considerable time. However, in 2014 Bürkert launched a revolutionary product that overcame many of the limitations of this stalwart of flow measurement. Since its inception, FLOWave has been refined and has had new features added to improve its suitability in new applications, including increased accuracy in compact assemblies.

From the outset, FLOWave aimed to resolve the traditional issues associated with the Coriolis flowmeter, such as cleanability, pressure drop, weight, energy consumption and cost – which it has already done. At the same time, the designers were also keen to work on making improvements to this innovative product, including the length of straight pipe required upstream of the FLOWave.Until now the Coriolis flowmeter had a distinct advantage in that it could be close-coupled to adjacent equipment and still deliver accurate readings. Initially, the FLOWave required 40 x D (pipe diameter) of straight pipe, which has largely precluded it from operation in process skids that need to have compact dimensions.

flowave skids

Work carried out in collaboration with a leading pharmaceutical company has managed to reduce the length of upstream straight pipe to just 4 x D while maintaining accuracy. This has been refined further by using Bürkert’s Teach-In function, which uses a known volume of the process fluid to improve the calibration of the FLOWave further to an impressive 0.2% accuracy.

Further advantages, such as the very low energy consumption, around 25mA, and the lightweight construction compared to Coriolis flowmeters, are making a compelling argument for FLOWave to be implemented in process skids that require liquid flow measurement. In addition, the Bürkert Efficient Device Integration Platform (EDIP) enables intelligent networking down to the sensor and actuator level and simplifies communication within the application.

With further developments in the pipeline, the choice of components for measuring liquid flow in process skids is no longer a one-horse race.

Industry First Network Mode for Evaluating IEEE802.11ac WLAN Devices Launched

CategoryTest & Measurement   

Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A offering an Efficient, Accurate and Economical Solution to the Measurement of IoT devices Now Available

Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce the availability of the new Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A, an integrated one-box test set specifically for testing 802.11 WLAN devices. The MT8862 has advanced features, including built-in communications protocols, to create a more efficient, accurate and economical solution to verify the performance of WLAN devices in their actual operating state.

With built-in communications protocols, the MT8862A measures the performance of the WLAN devices in the actual operating state, and is the first test equipment of its kind to support all IEEE802.11ac/n/a/g/b standards. The MT8862A uses the Network Mode to measure the performance of the target WLAN device under test (DUT) in the actual operating state. RF performance characteristics, such as Tx power and Rx sensitivity (PER), can be measured using this Network Mode, which helps with configuration of a simpler test environment and eliminates the need for dedicated vendor-provided test modes required for WLAN device inspections.

Generally, WLAN measuring instruments for manufacturing inspections use a special inspection test mode for measurement that requires a physical control line connection between the WLAN devices and measuring instrument. Consequently, the evaluation results are not a true reflection of the actual performance experienced by users because the performance of the measured WLAN devices is analysed using physical connection with a control line without considering the effect of the internal wireless antennas. Although Anritsu’s current MT8860C model used for these analyses has a network mode, it does not support IEEE802.11ac standard. To solve this problem, Anritsu developed the new model implementing support for the IEEE802.11ac Network Mode.

The Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A is ideal for measuring the RF TRx characteristics at design and quality assurance of WLAN devices. It has built-in WLAN protocol messaging as standard for Network Mode for measurement by connection with the DUT. The MT8862A is easy to operate using a web browser from a control PC connected by Ethernet which simplifies measurement setup and eliminates configuration work. In addition, remote control is also supported when the MT8862A and PC controller are inside the same network.

A Very British Manufacturer Exporting Globally

CategoryPumps & Pumping   

flotronic slimline

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps, packaging machines, spool valves, lift trucks and explosion proof boxes since 1952.  They had also been involved in the design and development of the high speed Bluebird boats and car in which Donald Campbell broke post-war water and land speed records.

Applying the innovative style which had characterised Norris Brothers approach to engineering, Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘ONE-NUT’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘ONE-NUT’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for customers in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. The ‘ONE-NUT’ design can be found on all the pumps manufactured at Flotronic’s original Ricebridge works near Bolney in West Sussex and the company remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

Flotronic Pump’s ‘ONE-NUT’ design today …

… has evolved substantially from the original and is integral to an extensive range of models and deployment in a huge variety of critical process applications. These include transferring materials as diverse as adhesives, cosmetics, drinks, dyes, food stuffs, hand cream, mayonnaise, paints, petrochemicals and yoghurt as well as aggressive chemicals such as acids, MEK and Toluene. Flotronic pumps can provide constant liquid feeds and pump thin or viscous liquids. Flotronic Pumps’ products are in operation around the world.

The air-operated double diaphragm pump has other advantages …

… over alternative pump types include self-priming, the ability to ‘dry-run’, ease in dealing with ‘dead-heading’ and solids content. The absence of a need for electricity also makes the pumps readily portable and very safe. And while other manufacturers have struggled to get round the problems of product leakage and suction pressure damage inherently associated with air-operated diaphragm pumps, Flotronic has been able to include diaphragm reinforcing plates in any of its pumps where required. The reinforcing plates are held in place by the ‘ONE-NUT’ and mean the pumps can withstand pressures in the suction line – known as unsupported head – of up to 7bar with no damage to the diaphragms. Suction pressure challenges resulting from causes as diverse as pressure cleaning, large tanks and bulk containers, pump priming, re-circulation and thermal expansion can all be met by any Flotronic pump with diaphragm reinforcing plates.

Flotronic Pumps and sanitary applications

Consumers rightly expect food and other hygiene-critical products to be clean and free from agents that cause disease or infection and their expectations are reflected in increasingly demanding legislation and internationally recognised accreditations.
All pumps in the standard Flotronic Stainless Steel Slimline range are hygienic. There is also a sanitary Stainless Steel range with specialised surface finishes, seals and internal radii. Our pumps with PTFE parts meet USP Class VI standards.

Flotronic Pumps ‘H’ and ‘E’ Style pumps …

… take ‘sanitary’ to an even higher level. Made in Britain but manufactured to meet internationally recognised standards, Flotronic Pumps ‘H’ and ‘E’ Style pumps have been through processes which see them enjoy the United States ‘۳-A’ and European and EHEDG accreditation respectively, with ‘H’ and ‘E’ Style pump’s drainability key to their accreditation success.

‘ONE-BLOCK’ as well as ‘ONE-NUT’

The Minichem, another innovative design on offer from Flotronic Pumps, is machined from a solid block of FDA approved PTFE, removing the need for separate manifolds. This ‘ONE-BLOCK’ approach, incorporating internal ball valves, means there are no manifold seals and therefore no obvious leak paths, making the Minichem safe to operate in hazardous environments and applications.

Explosive environments

Flotronic Pumps offer options on most pumps which make them suitable for in-line maintenance in a potentially explosive environment and therefore compliant with the latest European ATEX Directive. Component selection can cover all Gas Groups (IIA, IIB and IIC).

Flotronic Pumps Limited might be firmly based in the UK …

… but the company is seeing significant success in developing new markets overseas. Exports as a percentage of total sales rose from just 15% in 2003 to 40% in 2016. 50% of exports go to Europe – but pumps are being sold in increasing numbers across the world including the US and Canada (25%) and the Far East (8%) – with the remaining 17% distributed to the Middle East, India, South America, South Africa and Australasia. The company is seeing particularly high overseas growth in pump sales into its target Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, Chemical manufacture and Cosmetics markets, with three of the most recently developed products, the ‘Minichem’ – machined from a solid block of PTFE, the 3-A accredited ‘H’ series sanitary applications pump and the EHEDG accredited ‘E’ Series pump generating particular interest.

The company has invested heavily in establishing and supporting local dealer networks to make their exports drive happen. The recruitment process includes an assessment of whether the dealer can deliver on key Flotronic brand values like commitment to quality and the highest standards of customer care. Support includes literature and other marketing collateral, local PR, high visibility at trade exhibitions and funding help in establishing a credible online presence.

Flotronic Pumps Ltd is determined to build on its burgeoning international sales success, with exports as percentage of total sales expected to rise to 50% by 20175. The company is concerned that building domestic market share in what is a highly competitive industry doesn’t become the be all and end all of its future success. And there’s also the kudos attached to being ‘made in Britain’ but being successful internationally.
