New Flow Meter Range for Process Industry

Oct 22 2008 Read 1044 Times

ABB (UK) has announced the launch of a new range of flow meters targeted at the process industries, including chemical, power, oil & gas, pulp & paper and metals & mining. Part of ABB’s FlowMaster family, ProcessMaster incorporates a host of advanced features providing
users with enhanced performance with reduced complexity.
Available in sizes 3 to 2000 mm (1/10 – 80"), the ProcessMaster range offers a wide choice of liner and electrode options, enabling it to meet the needs of even the most demanding applications.
Options include a high temperature design model in combination with a reinforced PTFE, ideal for hot-fluid applications up to 180°C. Additional liner choices include hard rubber, soft rubber, PTFE, ETFE and PFA for all applications including those requiring protection
against abrasion and chemical attack.
Self-cleaning and double-sealed electrodes ensure enhanced reliability and performance. The use of high frequency excitation, combined with advanced filtering, further improves measurement accuracy by
significantly reducing the impact of fluid and electrode noise. The increased excitation frequency has been shown to reduce the background noise by up to 65%.
An IP 68 (NEMA 4X) optimized sensor design is also available for applications requiring complete protection.
Four electronics cartridge options result in cost savings on inventory control, when compared to ABB’s previous offering of 14 cartridge variants. Featuring active/passive current and pulsed outputs, the slimmed down cartridge offering helps simplify installation and
reduce spare part costs and inventory. Each cartridge can be deployed in integral, pipe mounted and remote installations, with an Ex version also available for hazardous area locations.
The ProcessMaster range features unmatched diagnostic capabilities. In accordance with NAMUR NE107, alarms and warnings are classified with status classifications such as ‘maintenance required’, ‘function check failure’, and ‘outside of specification’.
Users can readily upgrade their meters with new operating and diagnostic capabilities via an infrared service port, which enables new functions to be added without operational interruption.
All ABB flow meters are designed and manufactured in accordance with international quality procedures (ISO 9001) and are calibrated on nationally-traceable calibration rigs to provide the end-user with
complete assurance of both quality and performance.
