You may BE a winner; Survey says…

Posted on December 17, 2008

Congratulations to our BEblast Survey Winners!


Thanks to everyone who responded to our Nov. 4th survey! The winners, selected at random in a blind drawing, are:


- R. Baugh


- M. Vandervelde


- S. Burgess


Congrats! To claim your $50 Visa Gift Card, just send me an email at from the address you referenced in the survey and I'll be in touch.


As heard from you! The survey says ...


We had a great response and heard from plant managers, instrument engineers, directors of quality - even some of our representatives and distributors. They work mainly in the key industries Burns serves: Life Sciences, Energy and Food & Beverage. Thanks again to all who shared their opinions.


So what did you have to say? Here's a summary:besurveyq4.PNG


Most valuable temp-measurement info? 61% said App Notes and Product Specs (we'll keep them coming!)


What would help you get the big promo at work? That mostly had to do with ways to save money with effective temperature measurement, creative application approaches, newest tech advancements - and one person wanted to get hired by Burns! (we'll see what we can do.)


What industry events are you planning to attend? Most common shows were ISA, ISPE, NCSLI. Many were still undecided at this time. (so far, Burns is committed to INTERPHEX Puerto Rico and New York, NCSLI and maybe an energy show and a food & beverage show: email me if you know of good ones!)


And how are folks interacting with our BEblasts?


- 87% open our BEblasts (36% Always and 51% Sometimes)


- 66% click-through to other articles or links (11% Always and 55% Sometimes)


- 59% visit our BEsite once a month (thanks!)


- 86% HAVE NOT visited the BEblog! (ouch!)


But hey, thanks for visiting the BEblog today! Like our survey, this is the place to keep the conversation going. So hit the COMMENT button now and leave a thought or two about what would make you visit the BEblog once in a while.


Thanks again for your time on the survey and for being such great customers and business partners. Together, we're one amazing group of temperature measurement experts!


Talk soon, Chuck

Burns PRT’s: Reliability by design

Posted on December 1, 2008


steam-dump-transm-probes.JPGReliability is important in every PRT application.  When the installation is on a helicopter repair ship which was headed for Iraq, it is critical.�





This photo is of two Burns sensors installed ~10 years ago on the (SS Wright). We recently updated the transmitters/indicators, but the sensors are still in place and headed to support helicopter repair and maintenance needs for our troops around the world.


Burns is committed to insuring The SS Wright stays operational even 1000's of miles away from home.


How is reliabilty important to your operation?  Click the comment button and share.
