Emersons Rosemount 8800 vortex flowmeters help MORE s.r.l. reduce energy, optimize efficiency and accuracy.

Based in Gemona del Friuli,Italy, MORE a wide range of technologies and auxiliary equipment for electric arc furnaces used in the steel-making industry. The accurate measurement of oxygen is critical in the steelmaking process. Too much oxygen causes over-oxidation (decarburization), which requires expensive re-work to obtain steel of suitable quality.Too little oxygen, on the other hand, slows production. The application therefore demands measurement devices that enable accurate control of the injector feed oxygen-fuel ratio. MORE had been using differential pressure (DP) flow meters to measure the oxygen flow in its electric arc furnaces with little success to meet customers demand for even more accurate control, as well as changing process requirements. MORE decided to implement Emersons Rosemount vortex technology. Rosemount 8800 Vortex flowmeters feature a unique design that addresses the limitations of traditional vortex flow meters. Its signal filtering (Adaptive Digital Signal Processing-ADSP) and a mass-balanced sensor design maximize measurement reliability and eliminate the impact of vibrations on measurement accuracy. In addition, to meeting customer demands for greater flexibility in their furnace installations, the 25:1 rangeability of the 8800 helps to optimize gas heaters, providing greater opportunities to vary the characteristics of the steel for different applications. And while DP flow meters can have up to 30 leakage points, the gasket-free sensor design of the Rosemount 8800 vortex flowmeters means there are no potential leak points, reducing maintenance requirements and enhancing safety.DOWNLOAD VALVE SOLUTIONS APP.

Sitrans FUT 1010 flowmeter from Siemens improves plant efficiency and improves productivity.

The SITRANS FUT 1010 liquid and gas flow meter from Siemens is designed to suit diverse applications across the liquid and gas hydrocarbon industries. Apart from a number of innovative operational and cost-related benefits it offers many advantages over traditional inline meters when it comes to flow measurement precision and custody transfer solutions. The FUT 1010 uses innovative Widebeam transit time technology, which increases flow measurement precision by reducing the sensitivity to changes in the medium’s physical properties. The resonant frequency of the pipe wall is used to transmit the beam into the media with the wall acting as a waveguide. As a result of this technology, a strong coherent signal is generated on which the FUT 1010’s high accuracy and range ability is based. The Sitrans FUT 1010 has developed a unique TransLoc mounting system, Widebeam sensors are permanently mounted on the outside of the pipe. It provides custody transfer accuracy while eliminating any contact with the medium. Use of such non-intrusive ultrasonic transducers not only protects them from harsh operating environments, but it also significantly reduces the required levels of maintenance for the meter. Among many advantages, the USP of the FUT 1010 is the savings in maintenance required are significant and can help increase the productivity and improve the operational efficiency of a site with less need for downtime or interruption of processes.
