The PGI Division was acquired by Parker Hannifin, a global diversified manufacturing company of motion and control technology and systems.
Parker Hannifin’s products are vital to virtually everything that moves or requires control, including the manufacture and processing of raw materials, durable goods, infrastructure development and all forms of transport.
Specifically, Parker Hannifin’s PGI Division’s product applications center around providing small ancillary devices and systems that interface to a pressurized vessel, typically connecting, isolating, sensing or utilizing pressurized fluids.
The PGI Division was founded and is headquartered in Houston, Texas. Additional manufacturing facilities are located in Mexico, China, Singapore and Canada.
Alternative Power Sources
TEC-8Parker Hannifin PGI
Features: Parker’s TEC thermo-electric battery chargers deliver power to your data, communication and automation applications regardless of available sunlight or inclement weather. TEC-8 supplies 12 or 24 volt batteries with up to 6.3 watts of continuous power, regardless of available sunlight that could limit solar panel applications. TEC’s small, robust, self-contained package makes installation quick and easy and virtually eliminates theft and vandalism.
• 6.3 watts of continuous power from natural gas or propane
• More reliable than solar panels
• Less expensive than electrical hook-up or solar panel systems
• For flow computers, volume correctors, transmitters or communication systems
• CSA approved for Class I, Div 2
Zeus DB1Parker Hannifin PGI
Features: Parker’s DB1 Differential Pressure Battery Charger is a versatile alternative to solar panel systems that are used to power electronic instruments on gas pipelines. Unlike solar panels, the DB1 can be installed in almost any location and is unaffected by shade, snow, freezing rain, ice, or dust build-up. In applications such as wireless communications at remote monitoring sites, the DB1 produces a 12- or 24- volt power output to keep the battery fully charged. The battery’s temperature and charge level are continuously monitored and the DB1 produces up to 50 watts to keep it charged.
