Self Contained and Environmentally Conscious
Solar panels provide an environmentally friendly, independent, and reliable power supply. All data is transmitted wirelessly, further expanding the stand alone nature of the system.
Complete turn-key system provides a user friendly interface, fully compatible with automatic call-out systems. The IMELDA system can also be accessed remotely by any computer as long as the user has the required encryption password.
A common problem with any pressure measuring device, be it a simple pressure gauge or an electronic transducer, is plugging up from the contaminants or freezing off in subzero temperatures. The IMELDA pressure measuring unit incorporates a unique and proprietary Isolation Gland, which isolates the pressure transducer from the process media. The problem with any highly sensitive transducer is that they can be destroyed by any contaminate that gets inside of them. In an effort to protect these sensors/transducers, filters (snubbers) are often installed between the process liquid and the transducer. These filters are a very fine mesh that will become rapidly plugged because of rust, dirt, and any other contaminates inherent in any pipeline. As these filters get plugged up by contaminates, the pressure transducer in any system will be rendered useless and the computer will read no changes in the pipeline pressure.
