Transducer Techniques, established in 1979, designs and manufactures a complete line of load cells, torque sensors, special purpose transducers and related instrumentation. Transducer Techniques load cells are uniquely designed for weight and force measurement in such diversified applications as process control and factory automation. Other applications exist in numerous fields of science and industry for our load cells. All transducer sensing elements incorporate bonded foil strain gauges, wired in a full Wheatstone bridge configuration.

Technology
Load cells are electro-mechanical transducers that translate force or weight into voltage. This change in voltage produces a signal in the read-out instrumentation, a repeatable deflection or indication that can be calibrated directly in terms of the load applied to the load cell.

Construction
Construction of the load cell utilizes all the advantages of bonded foil strain gauges. Sealed within the load cell are sets of matched strain gauges bonded to a high strength element, machined to close tolerances. The strain gauges are electrically connected to form a balanced Wheatstone bridge and additional compensation resistors are added to the circuit for maintaining the accuracy of the bridge over a wide temperature range.

Operation
The principle of operation depends upon the deflection of the strain gauge filament, creating a change in its resistance, thereby unbalancing the bridge circuit. As a result, for a given input voltage, the output voltage of the bridge varies proportionally with the load and the change can be read on appropriate instrumentation.

Quality
When completed, each load cell is individually tested and calibrated. Each cell must meet or exceed rigid electrical and mechanical performance tests before it is released for service. Also, every cell is proof tested to its full rated capacity, and in most instances, to over its rated capacity.

Attributes
An important asset of our load cells is their extremely small deflection. The maximum deflection of standard cells does not exceed .012" at full load. This plus the fact that these load cells contain no moving parts opens unlimited application fields. The inherent compactness of the load cells minimizes installation problems.

The frequency response characteristics of our load cells are exceptionally good. The relatively low mass, and the small deflection under load, result in a high-frequency response which emphasizes the use of the load cells in many services where other transducers cannot perform.

Only strain gauges of the highest quality are installed and configured by technicians who have undergone our extensive training program targeting craftsmanship and attention to detail. To the end-user, this means a quality product. All Load Cells / Force Sensors and Torque Sensors are supplied with a Calibration Certificate traceable to NIST.

Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Life and Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small businesses. Everyone knows that small business is working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small businesses, not sending businesses out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

Small Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function are to advocate on behalf of suffering small businesses due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for Small Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to become more than a cause. It has now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small businesses support and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small businesses. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from its recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to Small Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to the government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.

EnviroMix Adds New Features to Aerobic Digestion Product Offering

BioCycle-D installation in Benton, IL

BioCycle-D decouples aeration from mixing, optimizing efficiency and process control.

New features enhance already-robust BioCycle-D Optimized Aerobic Digestion Process

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Introduced to the wastewater treatment market in 2014, EnviroMix’s BioCycle-D Optimized Aerobic Digestion Process represented a paradigm shift from the conventional approach to aerobic digestion. The company recently publicized several new features that enhance the already robust product’s capabilities.

Biosolids management costs for a small to medium-sized wastewater treatment facility can account for 50% of the facility’s operations and maintenance expenses. The conventional approach to aerobic digestion involves using constant aeration to both provide mixing of the digester’s contents and meet the oxygen demand, resulting in an exorbitant amount of energy use and providing little to no process control. Upgrading the aerobic digestion process to BioCycle-D can save a facility both time and money, while ensuring process performance to meet disposal requirements.

Delivering 50% or greater energy savings, BioCycle-D provides optimal conditions for aerobic sludge digestion and volatile solids destruction at a fraction of the operating expense of a conventional aerobic digestion process. Recently added features include:

— An operator selectable sludge processing mode that ensures tank contents are homogenous for downstream processing and maintains phosphorus in the sludge through low oxic states.

— An operator selectable supernatant return mode that includes an automated settle and decant phase. This mode allows the sludge to thicken, eliminates the return of nutrients to the head of the secondary treatment process, and reduces the need for costly chemicals.

— Fully updated operator interface terminal (OIT) graphics that support an intuitive, seamless user experience.

By decoupling aeration from mixing, BioCycle-D operates on the principle of alternating aerobic and anoxic conditions to optimize digestion and save energy. Through instrumentation feedback, the BioCycle-D controller automatically transitions the cycles from aerobic for volatile solids destruction to anoxic/anaerobic for facilitating denitrification, alkalinity recovery, and energy savings. Aerobic–anoxic cycling ruptures cell walls, resulting in better dewaterability of the sludge and greater volatile solids destruction.

To learn more about the process optimization, energy efficiency, straightforward operation, and unparalleled flexibility BioCycle-D Optimized Aerobic Digestion Process provides, visit www.enviro-mix.com/BCD.

About EnviroMix:
Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, EnviroMix designs and manufactures treatment systems for municipalities and industrial facilities to dramatically reduce energy costs and help meet nutrient removal limits. Utilizing patented and proprietary technology, EnviroMix provides complete mixing systems, process controls, and energy management solutions to enhance plant performance in the water and wastewater markets.
