Stating that “it is not just technology, but the problems we can solve for customers,” Emerson Process Management Flow and Micro Motion executives announced several new products that advance the state of measurement for process measurement and control.
The Micro Motion ELITE CMFS sensor platform is added to its line of Coriolis flowmeters to deliver precise measurement to smaller line sizes (pipelines less than 2 inches or DN50). The new sensor platform expands the ELITE family of flowmeters, whose functionality, line size breadth, accuracy, and flexibility are designed for a wide range of real-world applications.
The new Micro Motion ELITE CMFS sensor platform features nine distinct sensor sizes in three compact footprints, from 1 mm to 50 mm in nominal diameter lines sizes (1/12” to 2”). This meter delivers ±0.05% liquid flow mass and volume accuracy, ±0.25% gas accuracy and ±0.0002 g/cc density accuracy for flow rates of 0.04 lb/min to 1,980 lb/min (1kg/h to 54,000kg/h). It features a compact, lightweight, and fully drainable design.
The ELITE CMFS platform is designed to serve a wide range of applications including chemical injection, production blending, process gas solutions and batching operations in a variety of industries including chemical, oil and gas, food and beverage, life sciences and pharmaceutical industries along with integrators and skid builders.
The new ELITE CMFS meters are easily integrated into processes with a wide range of transmitter options featuring integral or remote mounting options. They also offer a wide range of protocols that include HART, Foundation fieldbus, Profibus PA, Profibus DP, Modbus, or EtherNet/IP. Emerson’s Micro Motion global ISO/IEC17025 network of calibration centers allows for precise meter calibration with measurement uncertainties of ±0.014%.
Gas Density Meter
The next generation of the Micro Motion 7812 gas density meter designed for natural gas custody transfer, refinery/fuel gas measurement, hydrogen purity monitoring and many other process gas applications was announced Tuesday.
This meter uses proven “Ni-span C” vibrating cylinder technology that is optimized to ensure outstanding performance under varying process and environmental conditions. Calibrations are traceable to national standards with an optional IEC/ISO17025 accreditation that ensures compliance to the most stringent custody transfer requirements.
The Micro Motion Gas Density Meter now incorporates a head-mounted transmitter that has the flexibility to digitally connect to distributed control systems as well as the ability to output raw sensor signals to flow computers – conforming to custody transfer best practices.
The Gas Density Meter incorporates a new diagnostic capability called Known Density Verification that checks the meter for measurement alarm conditions, sensor integrity and the presence of coating, erosion or corrosion. This expands the availability of diagnostics information in critical density measurement applications and can result in significant reductions in maintenance costs and cycle times.
The Compact Density Meter is a multi-variable density meter designed for the custody transfer metering of crude oil, refined hydrocarbons, alcohols and many aggressive process liquids.
This meter combines Multivariable Digital technology, a high speed signal processing technology, with an optimized meter design that ensures outstanding performance under varying process and external environments. This is achieved through innovative compensation techniques where the Compact Density Meter measures both the fluid temperature and its own meter case temperature. This information is then used to minimize any measurement errors due to changes in environmental conditions.
Specific gravity meter
Emerson Process Management has released the Micro Motion Specific Gravity Meter, the next generation of the market-leading Micro Motion 3098 Gas Specific Gravity Meter designed for custody transfer, refinery/fuel gas energy measurement, hydrogen purity control and many other process gas applications.
In applications where fast response, direct gas measurement is required, the Micro Motion Gas Specific Gravity Meter solves the problems that users confront on a daily basis, such as managing rapidly changing fired heater air-to-fuel ratios, reducing refinery hydrogen impurities and minimizing windage losses in hydrogen-cooled generator sets.
This meter directly measures gas Molecular Weight and can be configured to output hydrogen purity, specific gravity, relative density, calorific value/BTU or Wobbe Index. Building upon “Ni-span-C” cylinder technology.
The Specific Gravity Meter now incorporates a head-mounted transmitter that has the flexibility to digitally connect to distributed control systems as well as the ability to output raw sensor signals to flow computers – conforming to custody transfer best practices. This new transmitter module has the capability of being able to output sensor data in four formats simultaneously–sensor frequency (time period), 4-20mA, HART and RS485 Modbus. The Gas Specific Gravity Meter now incorporates a new diagnostic capability, Known Density Verification, which checks the meter for measurement alarm conditions, sensor integrity and the presence of coating, erosion or corrosion. This new technology expands the availability of diagnostics information in critical density measurement applications and can result in significant reductions in maintenance costs and cycle times.
