So Why Buy TECO Consistency Transmitters Anyway?

I'm glad you asked.

One thing that really differentiates TECO Consistency Transmitters is that all of our systems are shipped with built-in flow-rate compensation.

Blade style consistency sensors, in particular, are sensitive to shifts in production flow-rate. This means that their output has a component which is strictly a function of flow-rate. If this isn’t taken into account, changes in flow-rate will look like changes in consistency. All of our systems have a flow-rate input so that this flow-rate component can be automatically subtracted out of the consistency signal.

We are the only manufacturer that offers flow-rate compensation.

Of course, it would be nice if a sensor wasn’t sensitive to changes in flow-rate in the first place. This is the key feature of our C3000 and C5000 probe style sensors. Their design is such that they are insensitive to shifts in production flow-rate below 3.0 fps. This means that as long as the flow-rate stays below 3.0 fps, shifts in flow-rate will not affect the probe output signal at all. That said, we do recommend active compensation for flow-rates above 3.0 fps when using C3/5000 series sensors.

We are the only manufacturer that offers a probe style sensor.

Next, our C5000 sensor is retractable, which means that the sensor can be removed from the process while the process is active. This feature is particularly useful for hostile measurement environments such as blow lines and bleach plant operations.

While our systems are as robust, if not more so, than other manufacturers, the nature of mechanical passive sensors make them consumables. The retractable feature of the C5000 allows a customer to restore a critical measurement in minutes, instead of waiting weeks or months for a scheduled shutdown. This is a real advantage for our customers.

We are the only manufacturer that offers a retractable probe style sensor.

All of our sensors are hot-swappable, which means that you don’t have to go through a recalibration when a sensor is replaced. Just utilize the built-in normalization procedure to zero the replacement sensor and you are good to go.

All of our consistency transmitters can be upgraded to behave as a consistency controller. The transmitter can also be upgraded to function as multi-input controller, so that other process parameters can be adjusted for in the consistency control loop.

We are the only manufacturer whose consistency transmitter can also act as a dilution controller.
We are 100% Made in the USA. Our chief competitors are all of foreign manufacture.

Finally, TECO is aggressively price competitive, if not actually the least expensive consistency measurement option available.

I'd say that those are pretty good reasons. Don't you agree?
