Emersons Coriolis flowmeters reduce maintenance, improves accuracy of measurement systems for Austrian crude-oil pipeline.

Adria-Wien Pipeline GmbH (AWP) an austrian company has upgraded their custody-transfer measurement on the Adria-Wien pipeline in Austria by replacing existing turbine flowmeters with Micro Motion ELITE High Capacity Coriolis flowmeters from Emerson Process Management. Faced by serious concerns over reliability and maintenance of turbine meters the management at AWP shifted their focus on using the latest technologies in their plants and automation. The Adria–Wien pipeline carries crude oil from the Transalpine pipeline at the Italian-Austrian border to the Schwechat refinery near Vienna, Austria. Emerson Process Management supplied two Micro Motion ELITE High Capacity flowmeters with multivariable digital transmitters. The flowmeters were added to the refinery infeed lines in a parallel arrangement that allowed them to be installed individually without interrupting the flow of crude oil. Data from the Coriolis flowmeters and temperature transmitters are communicated to the existing host system using an RS485 Modbus connection. The USP of ELITE High Capacity Coriolis flowmeters is, it features the Emerson Smart Meter Verification, an easy to use automatic diagnostic tool that quickly verifies the complete meter performance (sensor, drive and signal processing) without interrupting the flow measurement or process flow which is a big positive. Thus allowing meter performance to be tracked without removing it from pipeline. DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP. WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR PRODUCT? FEEDBACK @anand_rkrishnan
