July 2014 - AD & Biogas Exhibition, NEC Birmingham

AD&B 2014 attracted a record number of visitors for the 2014 show on the 2-3rd of July, this made the show the largest specific AD&B show in the country.

The show grew again this year with dedicated areas including and R&D hub and a biomethane transport display area. There were, as always a number of talks and seminars that were based around advancements within the industry and new ideas for the utilization of AD&B as a sustainable source of gas for use within the national supply chain. The exhibitors ranged from large scale plant manufacturers, plant designers, industrial equipment suppliers and University research teams.

Bronkhorst again enjoyed the 2 day show with a theme based on and around the metering and control of gases and liquids within the AD&B industry. Our main feature was the Coriolis dosing system, an automated system to showcase the way we can control and data log the delivery of liquids into an environment. Alongside our expertise in liquid control and metering, Bronkhorst had a range of Mass Flow meters and controllers used in the gas side of the industry, either to control or meter gas consumption at the beginning of the process, or to record the gas produced as a result of the reaction process.  Of particular interest for this show was our M+W Mass Stream range of mass flow meters and controllers, utilizing CTA (continuous temperature anemometry) sensor technology enables them to be more robust in dealing with wet and dirty gas that would prove problematic for the traditional thermal by-pass mass flow sensor.

The Bronkhorst stand proved again to be interesting and was. As always, well visited by a wide range of people, the conversations about applications, solutions and potential future projects were enjoyed by Anthony Fick, Training Manager, Paul Burroughs, Area Sales Manager South East and James Walton, Area Sales Manager North West.

June 25th 2014 - Bronkhorst UK Scotland Coriolis Seminar

Bronkhorst UK successfully held its 6th and latest Coriolis Product Seminar at the Sterling Highland Hotel, Sterling during Thursday 26th June

The format for the day was designed around “information sharing” with a program for customers to learn the finer details of the products – not the facts and figures that commonly feature within a catalogue, but more the practical benefits of the hidden features and how this helps the user on a day-to-day basis. The direction for the day was very much “non-sales” with far greater emphasis on technical features and the practical “hands-on” demonstration of the resulting benefits with fully working instruments.  

With 17 delegates arriving from all around the Scotland and North of England area, some spending the night before in local hotels, the level of commitment to Bronkhorst and the Seminar concept can clearly be seen. The day started with a gentle overview of our Coriolis technology with both PowerPoint and physical samples combining well to complete the presentation. Both Ron Tietge and Erwin Eekelder were kindly present from Cori-Tech, The Netherlands and this, in turn, demonstrated our commitment back to the customer and our belief in the Seminar concept. Rons’ skill in pitching the technical content just right and his obvious in-depth knowledge of the subject matter was highly appreciated by the audience. Following the 60-minute talk, a number of smaller groups were formed – each held in separate breakout practical sessions. These were again comprehensively supported by Cori-Tech in terms of equipment and software tooling thereby ensuring that every single question could be answered by a practical demonstration. These hands on sessions allowed the customer to delve deeper and deeper into such topics as Cori-Fill Technology, Pump Steering (gear, diaphragm and peristaltic), Software Tools including Fluidat and a session on common misunderstandings and/or troubleshooting. Following feed-back from previous events two new sessions were also included; the first on Valve Steering and the second on Integration into Systems.  

As mentioned, Bronkhorst Coriolis Seminars are specifically designed to ensure that our customers, new and old, are able to learn the practical side of our instruments based on an element of theory. In addition, however, they have proven themselves to be a useful vehicle for our customers to provide Bronkhorst with their positive experiences, requests and suggestions. Moreover, and probably most important of all, it provides the perfect setting for users to talk to users and share their individual solutions and “tricks of the trade” within a passionate, stimulating and motivating environment. 

Product Seminars are part of the Knowledge Transfer opportunities run by Bronkhorst UK Ltd. Formal and informal training, Technology Days, Seminars and Lunch-and-Learn Sessions can be held at a customers premises, Bronkhorst offices or independent venues as required.

April 13th 2014 - James Walton Completes the London Marathon

On the 13th April 2014 James Walton ran the London marathon in aid of a local charity providing safe housing and shelter to vulnerable people in the community, The Rossendale Trust.

James only started running in 2013 as an attempt to try a triathlon event as an extension to my first love, road cycling. Starting off running a 5 km distance over the period from August to September in 2013 he built up to 10 miles and entered a local Congleton half marathon called ‘the sting in the tail’ (due to a 10% climb 2 miles from the finish).

Finishing the half marathon in 1 hour 43 mins was incentive to try some more running events.

In December of 2013 came the invitation to run for The Rossendale Trust at the London Marathon, it seemed like too good of an opportunity to miss, James duly signed up and committed to completing the marathon.

So, it began, on the 1st January 2014 in the rain and cold he ventured out for a 10km run, forcing myself to get through it as a sign of my commitment to see the challenge through for myself and the charity.

By building a plan that lead up to the Marathon, it was easy for James to see what he had to do to be on track, this of course included working with my commitments to Bronkhorst customers and colleagues, Sales meeting’s, Sales training and Coriolis seminars.

James was soon running 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It became a routine and by March had built his endurance up by running 9 miles Monday, 14 miles Wednesday and 20 miles on Friday, still having time to cycle on Sunday!

By the time the date for the Marathon arrived, James was fit and ready to go. Completing the Marathon in 3 hrs 59 mins on a very hot Spring day in London was a great way to finish 3 months of build-up and training. While all of the training was ongoing, James also raised money for The Rossendale trust and raised, with the help of Bronkhorst, 1,200 GBP.

To finish, James would like to thank Andy Mangell, my colleagues at Bronkhorst UK and Bronkhorst Hi-Tec for supporting my Marathon run and putting up with my strange dietary habits at sales meetings during this period, next time we meet James will not be as reluctant to enjoy a beer or 2!

February 2014 - Southern Manufacturing – Farnborough- Review

Bronkhorst has continued to enjoy success at the recent Southern Manufacturing Exhibition, the UK’s largest regional exhibition with over 600 Industrial suppliers exhibiting the products and services.  The event was very well attended and despite being forced to close early on the first day due to the severe weather conditions, the spirits of the Southern Region Sales Managers, Ken Drayson (South West) and Paul Burroughs (South East) were not dampened by the wet conditions!

Paul continued “ I always find that Southern Manufacturing is a great place to meet new customers. We are visited by professionals from all industries such as Pharmaceutical,  Oil & Gas to Food & Beverage plus our anticipated regular Engineering and Research customers”.

Bronkhorst showed a range of working Instrumentation to prospective companies with the Coriolis Dosing system being viewed very much as an “impressive eye-catcher” by  the knowledgeable passing visitors walking the isles.  In addition, the clear, bright displays of the working Mass-View regulators were easy to read from a distance, clearly demonstrating that the benefits of a purge meter (or VA) are indeed now brought into the 21st century.

Discussions at the event covered every aspect of the Bronkhorst product portfolio from Vapour Generation Systems, used in thin film coatings and controlled atmosphere processes, through Liquid Flow instruments, some down to 25 millionths of a litre per minute, to the many variations of Gas Flow instruments and indeed electronic pressure controllers that visitors enquired about.

October 2013 - Ashley Swims into the Record Books

At the End of October 2013 Ashley Buck from Bronkhorst UK travelled to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, UK for British Swimming Short Course National Masters. Ashley took part in 3 individual events for Newmarket SC and 4 relays events for his 2nd club March Marlins SC.

The event is a national competition for all swimmers over the age of 18 being eligible to swim; Ashley competes in the 30…34 year age group.

In the individual races Ashley swum in the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke events from which he won gold in the 100m backstroke in a time of 1:00.50 and he won 2 silvers in the 50m backstroke in a time of 27.92 and 200m backstroke in a time of 2:13.85.

Ashley also competed in 4 relays events which were the 4 x 50m medley, 4 x 50m freestyle, the 4 x 100m medley and 4 x 100m freestyle. In these races the team broke the European record by 4 seconds in the 4 x 100m medley relay and the British record by 5 seconds in the 4 x 100 free relay. They also won the 4 x 50m Medley Relay and got silver in the 4 x 50m free relay.

September 2013 Offshore Europe – Aberdeen - Review

Bronkhorst hails the success of the biggest and best Offshore Europe yet. With over 1,500 exhibitors and 63,000 visitors, the event was both extremely busy and highly interesting as the knowledgeable attendees posed a number of technical challenges that certainly pushed the boundaries for existing technology.

Fortunately, with technical experts on hand, and some in-depth discussions at the event, Bronkhorst was able to demonstrate how solutions from many mission critical  industries can be consolidated to meet the current and future needs of offshore/on-shore applications. In broad terms, these applications fell under three headings:

Subsea Gas Measurement– for such examples as continuous leakage rate calculations, formation analysis and sample rate control.

Precise Ultra Low Flow Chemical Dosing– for both existing performance chemical dosage control and for the R&D of new, ever more concentrated formulations that require extremely low flow rates.

Real-time continuous measurement of gas and liquid parameters– including such measurements as the Wobbe Index, density, temperature, viscosity and pressure and oil/water ratio.

The real work, though, is only just beginning as post-show follow meetings commence. It is clear already however that with good partnership, and effective collaboration, virtually any potential obstacles can be overcome.
