SWAGELOK M200 PORTABLE CALIBRATION UNIT

13 June 2013

EXTENDS SERVICING CAPABILITIES TO EQUIPMENT OWNERS

Designed to streamline orbital welding power supply maintenance, Swagelok Company introduces the new Swagelok® M200 portable calibration unit. The advanced M200 portable calibration unit delivers on-site power supply maintenance, providing added convenience, reduced costs, and  improved efficiencies that can cut servicing timelines from days to  minutes.
 
The calibration unit allows for immediate calibration of a Swagelok  welding system M200 power supply. Many quality systems require orbital  welding power supplies to be calibrated periodically. Traditional  calibration processes are completed offsite at a designated service location; leaving operations idling or needing to incur extra expense with rental equipment. Portable calibration helps minimize down time, which is key for remote or secured environments; such as, offshore oil drilling platforms, nuclear plants, and government sites that cannot easily arrange power supply transport to and from service centers.

The M200 portable calibration unit is designed with enhanced technology  focused on promoting efficiency through the welding process. On-screen  navigation on the M200 power supply prompts users to initiate the calibration process. The calibration unit then performs various diagnostics and measures output levels. The calibration unit is designed to specifically calibrate based on critical welding variables including:
 

-       Current – Automatic calibration to ensure proper current output for future welds.

-       Voltage – Provision of simple, on-screen adjustments to match actual values with expected values.

-       Travel speed – Electrode travel speed is verified and adjusted  real-time via the M200 operating software, eliminating the need for frequent calibration. This verification is displayed and documented as part of the calibration software, making documentation easier for  users.

 

The M200 portable calibration unit is a 2013 recipient of Gases & Instrumentation International Magazine’s Golden Gas Award for technologically innovative, high quality, and cost effective solutions  to challenges in the gas industry.
