New! Qnergy Powergen Remote Power Series Providing Remote Power from 100W up to 5.6kW

QnergyQnergy is pleased to announce the release of their complete PowerGen Remote Power Series that will cover power demands from 100W up to 5.6kW.

Designed for rugged, remote, unsheltered and unattended operation, the Powergen provides continuous reliable electrical power supply to mission-critical loads. Our PowerGen can also provide 60,000 BTU/hr. for up to 1500 feet of Glycol Heat Trace loop for your heating needs.




The three new models released by Qnergy are the:
  • Model CAP3 – Compressed Air Pneumatics, we can now provide instrument air on the wellpads and compressor stations to help further reduce emissions and with M.S. Jacobs and Associates extensive lineup of pneumatic controls from Fairchild/Rotork we can also provide regulators and valves that work in conjunction with the Model CAP3 from Qnergy.
  • Model 1800 – this new model from Qnergy will provide 1800 watts of power. This model is designed for those customers where the Model 1200 is not enough power but the Model 5650 is too much power.
  • Model 600 – this new model from Qnergy will provide 600 watts of power. M.S. Jacobs and Associates along with one of our customers were chosen as one of the Beta sites when the Model 600 was first developed. The Beta site testing here in Western Pennsylvania has gone extremely well and the customer is pleased with the Model 600. The Model 600 also has the same electronics package as the other models in the Powergen Series, if you have or are considering a thermoelectric generator, we can provide you with more communication capabilities and 50 more watts of power with the Model 600.

The Magnetrol Eclipse 700 Guided Wave Radar Transmitter

Magnetrol Eclipse® Model 700 TransmitterThe Magnetrol Eclipse® Model 700 Transmitter is a loop-powered, 24 VDC level transmitter that is based upon the proven and accepted technology of Guided Wave Radar (GWR). Encompassing a number of significant engineering accomplishments, this leading edge level transmitter is designed to provide measurement performance well beyond that of many of the more traditional technologies.

This single transmitter can be used in a wide variety of applications ranging from very light hydrocarbons to water-based media.

One universal Model 700 transmitter can be used and interchanged with several different probe types and offers enhanced reliability as it is certified for use in critical SIL 2/3 hardware safety loops.

The ECLIPSE Model 700 supports both the FDT/DTM and Enhanced DD (EDDL) standards, which allow viewing of valuable configuration and diagnostic information such as the echo curve in tools such as PACTware™, AMS Device Manager, and various HART® Field Communicators.

Fast and Easy Freeze Protection with Pre-Assembled Self-Regulating Heating Cable

Freeze ProtectionHeat tracing a pipe, from start to finish can be time consuming. Selecting the various components, starting with the heating cable itself, extends through termination kits, controllers, mounting hardware and other electrical hardware needed to put the heating system in operation. BriskHeat has a product that, for many applications, offers a very simple and quick solution.

Pre-assembled self regulating heat cable is available in two voltage ranges, two watt densities, and prefabricated lengths up to 150 feet. Each cable is terminated at each end, saving the installer time. The cable is flexible enough for a spiral installation or to wrap around valves in the piping system. The self regulating aspect of the cable negates the need for a controller and power switching devices. Assemblies targeted for 120 volt applications are provided with a factory installed plug. The 208-277 volt cables will arrive with bare wire leads for installation of a customer provided connector. The cable can be easily installed using fiberglass or aluminum tape. Suitable insulation applied over the finished work will improve the performance of the heating system.


For more information about freeze protecting pipes, valves, tanks, or vessels contact M.S. Jacobs. Call them at 800-348-0089 or visit their web site at https://msjacobs.com.

Minimize Controllable Feedwater Heater Losses Through Heat Rate Awareness


A feedwater heater is a device used in a power plant to pre-heat water being delivered to a steam generating boiler. Preheating the feedwater prior to steam generation improves the thermodynamic efficiency of the system. Heat rate is a measure of how efficiently a power plant uses heat energy. You can measure heat rate by the number of BTUs the power plant requires to generate a kilowatt hour of energy. As your heat rate goes up, so do your fuel costs. Considering fuel expenditures account for 70 to 80 percent of production costs and millions of dollars per year, improving heat rate one percent could generate five hundred thousand dollars in annual savings for a 500 megawatt power plant.

To contain fuel costs, power plants must maximize the efficiency of their feedwater heaters. That's why many companies today are focusing on improving heat rate as a way to use their feedwater heaters more effectively and significantly reduce their fuel costs.

The video above (courtesy of Magnetrol) explains ways to focus on heat rate awareness to minimize controllable losses from the feedwater system.
