Rich Merritt comments on a press release he sent me this afternoon; and it struck me funny:
Attached and appended below is a new product release describing the EPX2 voltage to pressure transmitter. You can obtain a high-resolution digital photo at ftp://editors.miinet.com. Download the EPX2 Voltage to Pressure Transmitter photo from the EPX2 folder.
This may seem like another run-of-the-mill product release at first, but note that the EPX2 can be powered by NATURAL GAS!
This means that control valves and pneumatic actuators at remote sites, where it is impossible or too expensive to install an air compressor, can be controlled by using natural gas as the pneumatic supply. Moore Industries developed this product for the natural gas industry for use at remote gas well heads, but it can be used anywhere gas is present and electricity isn’t.
