Get in and out quickly with a DP Transmitter Adapters. Ralston DP Transmitter Adapters make calibrating pressure transducers a snap.
Ralston Block and Bleed Valves make pressure calibration even easier. Save compressed gas and make calibrations go more quickly with the Ralston Block and Bleed Valve.
Female NPT Quick-connect adapters convert any NPT connection to Quick-test. Quickly switch between many devices under test without using a wrench or thread tape.
Make a high pressure connection to Swagelok, Parker, SSP or other tube fittings without a nut and ferrules or a wrench.
Watch the video of how our NPT Male Quick-connect Adapter makes a bubble tight seal on any female NPT port without thread tape or a wrench.
In many gas pipelines, chemical plants and refineries there are contaminants in the process line. These contaminants can pose a threat to the pressure calibration system regardless of whether they are corrosive gases, natural gas liquids or water. By working proactively to keep contaminants out of your pressure calibrator you can extend the life of your equipment and reduce your maintenance costs. But what is the best way to do this?
Like all markets, the oil and gas industry has buyers and sellers. Buyers want to make sure they are getting what they pay for and sellers want to ensure they are getting paid for what they are providing. But how does each party know exactly what is changing hands when the commodity is something that is difficult to isolate and measure --like a gas? How can each party feel good about the transaction if they can't see or weigh the goods that are being sold?
The new SP0V Gas Sampling Pump can pull natural gas from low producing wells and boost it up to a pressure that can be used in a sample cylinder easily and quickly.
Ralston Instruments has released a new, updated Connect Catalog which is greatly expanded. It also has interesting application notes, illustrations and reference information on how to select the best Quick-test hose or adapter for the job.
Ralston Instruments has passed the rigorous testing scheme for CE certification in the European market.
The new Ralston Instruments Quick-test Hose Configurator allows you to customize the exact hose you need for a very specific job. When our standard hoses do not meet your exact criteria, our custom hoses provide you with additional flexibility to help you get exactly what you need for your job.
Traditionally, tube fittings have been designed to be made up at 1.25 turns. However, when they are disassembled and reassembled they often get tightened beyond 1.25 turns. Over time, this pattern of excessive tightening results in the front ferrule digging into the tube and making it bulge out in a way that puts excessive wear and tear on the fitting. Not only does this cause leaks but it also makes the nut harder and harder to spin thus reducing the life of the fitting. Now there is a better way to connect to a tube fitting.
Ralston Instruments introduces new 90 Degree Elbows. Connect to transmitters in hard to reach places.
Todd has to calibrate multiple chart recorders on a gas pipeline but he has a problem. Since it is a natural gas pipeline he is concerned about using hydraulic fluid to do the calibration. It is also the middle of winter and he doesn't want any fluid to accumulate and freeze in the chart recorders. He has also had problems with pressure stability when using hydraulic fluid. The solution is to use a Ralston Instruments calibration manifold.
Over the last several months, Ralston Instruments has introduced a new line of Quick-test XT fittings and hoses. The added flexibility that comes with these products enables you to work more efficiently and ensures you have just the right tools to accomplish your job in a variety of different settings.
Connecting to devices in the field is difficult and time consuming.
Based on our approach to pressure calibration we have made it easier to find products. We have organized our products into 4 concepts: Connect, Create, Control and Calibrate.
Making Connections Using the Ralston Quick Test System is quick and easy. Connect to virtually any pressure system to 10,000 psi without thread sealant or a wrench.
The Quick-test System lets you connect to any pressure calibrator, pressure gauge, hand pump or pressure source easily and quickly.
There are several connections that are used for higher pressure connections where taper seals are not ideal. These connections use either a metal to metal seat or an o-ring seal to make a pressure tight seal at high pressures.
