Endress+Hauser Updates Proline 300 Smart Flowmeters for Hygienic Industries
Dec 05 2017 Read 541 Times
The Coriolis and electromagnetic flow instruments have been optimised for maximum safety, enhanced measurement quality, device accessibility and GMP compliance for sterile processes.
Endress+Hauser announces updates to its Proline 300 smart Coriolis and electromagnetic flowmeters for the hygienic industries. Their compact hygienic 316L stainless-steel housings are robust and optimized for highest reliability. Additionally, they have been designed to support an optional IP69 ingress protection rating, impervious to water ingress from high pressure wash-down. The sensors are designed according to ASME BPE, EHEDG and 3A standards, and provide full GMP compliance for sterile processes. They offer seamless integration into applications through a wide range of digital conductivity protocols including EtherNet/IP.
The Proline Promass 300 Coriolis flowmeters have several surface finish options including stainless-mechanical or electropolished wetted parts and low delta ferrite content that fulfils the most stringent requirements for GMP design and cleanability. The design is optimized for cleaning and sterilization, offering full drainability even in near horizontal installations. The Proline Promass Coriolis mass flowmeters are available in 11 models ranging in sizes from 1/24 to 14 inches in diameter, for measuring flows up to 100,000 tons per day.
Proline Promag 300 flowmeters are available in two models in sizes from 1/12 to 24 inches for volume flows up to 42,000 gallons per minute.
Both the Coriolis and electromagnetic flowmeters are available in models suitable for CIP/SIP processes in hygienic and sterile process applications.
Proline instruments connect to control systems via 4-20mA HART, PROFIBUS PA, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, Modbus, EtherNet/IP or PROFINET. Both families provide access to users via the device’s display, a web server, wireless LAN, handheld devices, asset management or process automation solutions, and Fieldbus protocol. Each provides fast commissioning, in-situ device verification during operation, continuous self-diagnostics and automatic on-board data storage.
Robust transmitter housings are available in aluminum, and hygienic or severe service stainless steel. Each housing has a two-chamber system with a front-mounted compartment for connecting source power, wiring the analog and/or digital inputs and outputs, and accessing the Ethernet service access port or device display. The second chamber permits service technicians to access the electronics modules for repair functions while maintaining protection against dust and contamination.
Local or remote four-line backlit optical displays with a WLAN connection allow access from a handheld device such as a smartphone or a tablet.
All Proline instruments have custody transfer approvals and meet the requirements of cCSAus, ATEX, NEPSI, INMETRO, EAC, IEC/EN 61326, NAMUR NE21, and EU and ACMA directives. They are also approved for use in SIL 2 and SIL 3 applications.
Smart Instrument Functions
Each Proline instrument has a HistoROM function to protect data storage automatically. This includes an event logbook and data logger that can be accessed locally or remotely, and storage of calibration and verification information. This onboard data storage makes it easy to replace and commission a new flow sensor.
The built-in web server provides universal browser-based access to device, diagnostics and process information from any device with an internet or Wi-Fi connection. Typical access devices include laptops, PCs, smartphones and tablets.
Endress+Hauser’s Heartbeat Technology package addresses device diagnostics, monitoring and verification functions used to satisfy regulatory, contractual, quality, safety or fiscal requirements.
Heartbeat Diagnostics provides self-monitoring for all Proline instruments, meeting NAMUR NE107 requirements for clear and unambiguous categorisation of events and device remedies for quick resolution of problems.
Optional Heartbeat Monitoring allows for customer identification of device trends from process influences such as buildup, settling solids or liquids, erosion, corrosion and multi-phase fluid flows.
The TÜV-attested Heartbeat Verification is the only method to have achieved third-party accreditation per traceable ISO metrological standards in operation. In-situ verification can be triggered at any time, from anywhere, to provide electronic quality reports.
The Proline instrument portfolio also connects directly to Endress+Hauser’s W@M lifecycle management software which tracks all necessary information about device calibrations, verifications, maintenance, and other functions over the life of the sensor and instrument.
