4B Milli-Temp 4-20 mA Bearing Temperature Sensor (EX) A loop powered analogue sensor with 4-20 mA linear output that is scaled across a temperature range for continuous bearing and surface temperature monitoring.
4B Milli-Temp 4-20 mA Bearing Temperature Sensor (EX)
A loop powered analogue sensor with 4-20 mA linear output that is scaled across a temperature range for continuous bearing and surface temperature monitoring. 4B’s Milli-Temp, a loop powered analogue sensor with a 4-20 mA linear output that is scaled across a temperature range for continuous temperature monitoring - is now also available as an ATEX-certified version. Applicable everywhere The Milli-Temp series can be used on any application where bearing temperature monitoring is needed. The sensor has been designed to allow the depth of the probe to be adjustable depending on the application. This adjustability allows the tip of the probe to be placed in the optimal position for monitoring bearing temperature and also enables verification using the 4B ADB Tester. Using existing grease zerk threads The sensor screws directly into the bearing housing using the threads of the existing grease zerk. The body of the Milli-Temp has an integrated zerk, allowing lubrication of the bearing without the need to remove the sensor. The sensors are supplied with a 3m cable. The connections are not polarity sensitive therefore

IE-Node - the future of hazard monitoring Utilizing industrial Ethernet and cloud connectivity to share real-time sensor data, alongside historical analytics, with your PLC of choice.
IE-Node - the future of hazard monitoring
Utilizing industrial Ethernet and cloud connectivity to share real-time sensor data, alongside historical analytics, with your PLC of choice. 4B’s IE-Node is the future of hazard monitoring. Utilising industrial Ethernet and cloud connectivity to share real-time sensor data, alongside historical analytics, with your PLC of choice — the IE-Node is truly intelligent. Sample code for a variety of PLC brands is available to help you connect your entire system and keep every component in constant communication for unprecedented hazard protection. The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and supports PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Modicon and other PLC’s or automation devices. The IE-NODE’s network configurator software provides a visual view of all devices on the network. It allows for easy identification of each unit on the network and allows for network settings to be changed as needed.

4B AM Nyrim Elevator Buckets in Oilseed Elevator Upgrade
The newly developed AM Nyrim elevator buckets offered more robust, higher capacity throughput without needing to carry out any drive changes. 4B recently assisted the largest UK producer of rape / canola oil in upgrading their main silo feed elevator to incorporate 4B’s advanced anti- static AM Nyrim elevator buckets. Increasing capacity by reducing material build-up in the buckets and improving hygiene throughout the production process. CHALLENGE Largest UK producer of rape / canola oil required an increase in the tonnage capacity of the elevator along with steps to improve hygiene and reduce the risk of salmonella contamination throughout their production facility. Oil and dust sticks to the traditional fabricated steel buckets building up and reducing capacity of the elevator. Over time these deposits grow and can reduce capacity of the buckets. These then start to break off in lumps and can contaminate the production process further along the refining process. SOLUTION Replacing the mild steel buckets with like for like would have no benefit in that they were susceptible to damage and build

4B Milli-Speed Switch now available with ATEX Certification
The 4B Milli-Speed Switch, a loop powered 4 - 20 mA analogue output speed switch for PLC, DCS or stand-alone controllers is now available as ATEX version. The Milli-Speed switch is designed to detect belt slip, belt underspeed, stop motion, low speed or zero speed on bucket elevators, conveyors, airlocks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other rotating machines. An inductive sensing device located in the nose of the Milli-Speed enclosure will detect a metal target. This target can be an existing bolt head or device attached to a shaft, such as 4B’s Whirligig® sensor mount. During installation, the Milli-Speed is set to the normal running RPM by simple magnetic calibration. Additionally, 4B’s SpeedMaster™ can be used with the Milli-Speed to test the functionality after the initial installation and during routine maintenance procedures. The SpeedMaster™ is the only device that accurately tests the calibration of a speed switch, and allows testing of the alarm and shutdown features of the sensor while installed on the machine shaft.

Chain Conveyor Upgrade - Corrosive Products Problem with chain conveyors in corrosive application solved through use of the right components.
Chain Conveyor Upgrade - Corrosive Products
Problem with chain conveyors in corrosive application solved through use of the right components. Customer was struggling with their conveyors transporting a corrosive by-product of crude oil processing. The chain was breaking and wearing fast, causing much downtime. 4B heavy duty links with corrosion-resistant pins and circlips improved the conveyor life by at least 50%. Challenge The customer was struggling with the life of the chain inside their chain conveyors. The chain conveyors where transporting a by-product of crude oil processing and wearing extremely fast. The wear was mainly due to the corrosive nature of the product and the strength of the chain installed. The corrosion was wearing the chain links and pins quite rapidly and the low chain strength lead to rapid elongation of the links. These 2 issues combined resulted in many chain breaks and a lot of production time loss to maintenance on the conveyors. SOLUTION Use of 4B142HAD chain links with pins in AISI420 and circlips in AISI304. These pins had a higher resistance to corrosion and the

Monitoring for drag chain conveyors 4B WDA sensor used as solution to monitor chain slack or breakage
Monitoring for drag chain conveyors
4B WDA sensor used as solution to monitor chain slack or breakage By using a WDA sensor in combination with a speed relay, ferrous steel flights or bolts on plastic paddles are used to monitor for broken or slack chain issues on drag conveyors. The WDA is a non-contacting extended range magnetic proximity sensor, not affected by dust or material build up, used to detect moving ferrous material up to 75mm away from the sensor. The speed relay is used to monitor the speed of a rotating shaft and detect if it rises or falls below a preset safety level.
