Advances in Industrial Flowmetering

By Gernot Engstler, Endress + Hauser |

    With typical operations running around the clock, the chemical process industry (CPI) demands high performance from its instrumentation. Today’s flowmetering solutions include tools for the entire life cycle of a flowmeter. From engineering, commissioning and start up to operations and maintenance, advanced diagnostics and onsite device-verification features help to maximize plant availability, instrument reliability and cost savings. Flowmeter instrumentation can even provide process status and analysis information that can be used to increase product quality and process efficiency. In addition to requiring high performance, users increasingly look for sensors that are easy to install, commission, use and maintain. Flowmeters that are tailored to the specific requirements of an industry or application can reduce the complexity and costs of operation. In this article, we look at some of the advanced functions of flowmeters.   THE LIFECYCLE The selection of the optimum flowmeter for an application is key for satisfactory performance. (For a detailed look at flowmeter selection, see Part 1 of this feature on pp. 54-59) Cost is often a decisive factor in choosing a flowmeter, and buyers’ economic…
