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

Honeywells Smartline Pressure transmitter boosts process plant efficiency, reliability and accuracy.

The STG800 high performance gauge pressure transmitter featuring piezoresistive sensor technology combining pressure sensing with on chip temperature compensation capabilities providing high accuracy, stability and performance over a wide range of application pressures and temperatures. The new Smartline STG800 Pressure transmitter from Honeywell features a modular design and advanced communication abilities that improve operational efficiency and reduce lifecycle costs for process plants. The SmartLine STG800 reduces total cost of ownership significantly by reducing maintenance and calibration activities as well as allowing users to stock fewer replacement spare parts for repairs and service. The SmartLine STG800 also allows users to upgrade or replace select components such as the communications module or HMI display in the field, without uninstalling the transmitter itself which is a big plus point. The SmartLine STG800 pressure transmitters make it easier to support field devices and promote plant reliability with their unique efficiency-enhancing features and advanced communication capabilities which are part of the transmitter's Smart Connection Suite. This allows control room operators to send routine maintenance and repair instructions to the display so field operators may identify and schedule required maintenance tasks from time to time. Finally the SmartLine STG800 boosts process plant efficiency, reliability and accuracy. DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP. WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR PRODUCT? FEEDBACK @anand_rkrishnan
