Proline Promass A for lowest flow rates

In many applications within the process, food and life sciences industries, the smallest amounts of a substance must be measured and added with a high degree of accuracy – whether in piping or in chemical reactors. Flavoring for foodstuffs, active ingredients for pharmaceuticals or corrosion-inhibiting substances in oil production are just a few examples. The newly developed Promass A measures such substances drop-for-drop with a precision unmatched worldwide.
Benefits:

  • Highest measuring accuracy for lowest flow quantities: ±0.1% (at min. 8 g/min), ±1% (at min. 0.8 g/min)
  • Excellent measuring performance and robustness, even in case of strongly fluctuating process and ambient conditions
  • Highest product quality in hygienic and sterile applications thanks to self-draining single-tube system
  • Space-saving installation: compact, lightweight sensors; no inlet and outlet runs required
  • Optimal process reliability: high corrosion resistance, developed according to IEC 61508 (SIL), Heartbeat Technology for permanent self-diagnostics as well as for device verification during operation
  • Full access to all process and diagnostic data through freely combinable I/Os, fieldbuses or WLAN

Promass A guarantees maximum robustness and precisely measured values with unparalleled repeatability. All of this thanks to the innovative sensor concept, which sets new standards in Coriolis measurement technology. Promass A is light and compact – with no losses in performance or robustness. The measuring device is therefore ideally suited for space-saving installation, for example in modular process facilities and skids.

Proline Promag 10D Electromagnetic flowmeter

Proline Promag 10D is an electromagnetic flowmeter for bidirectional measurement of conductive liquids. It is used for flow measurements in water or service water applications. Due to its easy installation and operation, its robust design and low price it can be used in applications where only limited principles could be used before. Drinking water approvals according to KTW/W270, WRAS BS 6920, ACS and NSF 61 are available.

Following Faraday's law of magnetic induction, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through a magnetic field. In the electromagnetic measuring principle, the flowing fluid is the moving conductor. By measuring the induced voltage, the flow velocity of the medium can be measured. The flow volume is calculated by means of the pipe cross-section area.

  • High degree of accuracy and measuring stability
  • No pressure loss, thus energy-saving
  • Not sensitive to vibrations

Cost Effective PROFINET / EtherNetIP Remote I/O Modules

Advantech IAG has announced the launch of ten ADAM-6100EI/PN I/O Modules designed to work directly with PLCs over EtherNet/IP and PROFINET.

In certain scenarios, these cost effective modules take the place of couplers when deploying I/O over a long distance and since they have dual Ethernet ports they can be daisy-chained every one hundred meters to collect data from and control the machines. One of the key advantages, and useful in a wide variety of scenarios, is ADAM-6100 series can be daisy- chained using Ethernet. This provides a cost effective solution to transmitting data over much longer distances than with PLCs.

For the benefit of central configuration across multiple machines, the ADAM-6100 using the ADAM.NET Utility, can create projects in L5K, a proprietary file format used by AB PLCs. EDS files, for the EtherNet/IP protocol, and GSD files for the PROFINET protocol formats are for use on a whole hostof third party PLCs.

To ensure the ADAM-6100 series and the data they carry are protected at all times from the harshness of the vagaries of a factory’s’ electrical supply, the ADAM-6100 series have 2,500 VDC isolation protection.

In various scenarios, signal decay and noise are prevented by placing ADAM-6100 AI modules near the sensors before sending data directly to the PLC which can be placed much further away and can receive data from multiple ADAMs in different locations. Because of their ease of installation, these ADAM modules are suitable for a wide range of environments.

The PROFINET Modules are: ADAM-6117PN- 8-ch Isolated AI; ADAM-6150PN-15-ch Isolated DI/O; ADAM-6151PN-16-ch Isolated DI; ADAM-6156PN-16-ch Isolated DO and ADAM-6160PN- 6-ch Relay Output.

The EtherNet/IP Modules are: ADAM-6117EI- 8-ch Isolated AI; ADAM-6150EI-15-ch Isolated DI/O; ADAM-6151EI-16-ch Isolated DI; ADAM-6156EI-16-ch Isolated DO and ADAM-6160EI-6-ch Relay Output.

RCM - Direct Reading Flowmeter

The KOBOLD RCM Series differential pressure direct-reading flowmeter is suitable for monitoring compatible liquids and gases having a low to medium viscosity and low solids content. The RCM flowmeter features rugged, compact construction with no moving parts to wear out. In liquid applications of 6 GPM and higher, pulsation snubbers are incorporated into the connecting pressure passages to produce smooth flowmeter operation independent of pipeline turbulence. The RCM flowmeter was developed for industrial flow metering applications in which durability and reliability are important considerations. The prime goals achieved within the RCM flowmeter design are: accuracy, small size, low cost, minimal maintenance and increased resistance to accidental damage. Typical applications include: lube oil and cooling water flow monitoring, blending processes, reverse osmosis systems, and compressed air measurement. The RCM direct-reading flowmeter is optionally available with a 4–20 mA analog current output for interfacing with remote displays and controllers. Limit switches are also available to provide high and low limit signals. In addition, a 0–1000 Hz frequency output is available to drive frequency-based controllers and counters.
