2018 Top 5 Innovations!

Launched at AEC 2014, and back by popular demand for the 3rd consecutive show... our Top 5 Innovations Self-Guided Tour showcases the 5 most innovative products / services on the Expo floor voted on by our AEC Selection Committee (made up of end-users).

Attendees will be given our Top 5 Innovations map when they register at the show. The map will indicate where the Top 5 innovations can be found on the exhibit floor.

And... Our Top 5 Innovations for AEC 2018 are:

  • Wirelessly Configured Self-Checking Gas Detection - Tundra Process Solutions
    • Extended calibration intervals up to 18 months, self-checking (4x per day), Dual Sensor capability. Industry-first through-glass touch config & Bluetooth configuration interface that works to 75 feet, SafeSwap sensor technology for hazardous areas, TruCal technology to actively monitor sensor integrity and compensate for environmental factors that affect conventional gas detectors.

  • Control Systems Turnkey Optimization (TKO) - Apex Automation
    • Turnkey Optimization (TKO) is an android & web software suite that will drastically reduced time required for control system commissioning by about 25% and increase the quality of field execution and hand over processes. Capturing all data real time by arming the execution staff with mobile device checklists and digital media.

  • Clamp On Portable Flow Meter Verification - Electro-Meters
    • The Fuji Electric FSC is a handheld battery powered (12 hours continuous use) device with removable clamp on sensor that allows the user to verify the flow rate of a liquid in a tube, without any interruption to plant operation (no plumbing, minimal installation time and cost). Because the sensor is external to the pipe, high temperature, high pressure or corrosive liquids are not an issue. The unit has a graphical LCD display with backlight that allows for real time monitoring, consumed energy calculation (air conditioner application) with data stored to SD card (512MB = 2 years), built in printer, removable clamp on detectors are available in various sizes for pipe diameters that range from 13-6000mm. Accuracy of 1.0% is typical.

  • Non-Intrusive Pressure Sensor - Atmos International
    • The system can provide the field pressure data to support an effective leak detection system much faster than a traditional project and without expensive installation costs.  The sensor can be installed within hours and begin transmitting pressure measurements immediately with zero operational down-time.  Combined with high resolution data logging and proprietary digital signal processing algorithms the non-intrusive sensor detects small pressure changes.

  • Wireless Resistive Tank Level Sensor - Carbon Controls
    • OleumTech Resistive Tank Level Sensors offer a cost-effective innovative solution to wirelessly monitor tank level without compromising API 18.2 compliance. Backed by a lifetime warranty against paraffin build up and H2S related issues, these sensors lower installation and maintenance costs while increasing equipment uptime and reliability.
