On-line verification for on-line flowmeters

Next-generation meter verification technology for Micro Motion® Coriolis meters is the only verification tool to test the complete meter, in minutes and without any process impact

Emerson Process Management has announced Smart Meter Verification technology for Micro Motion® Coriolis flow and density meters. Smart Meter Verification delivers complete, on-line verification of device performance, saving significant expense by reducing labour and outsourced calibration service costs while eliminating process interruption.

With no need to remove the meter from the line or stop the process flow, Smart Meter Verification – at the touch of a button or on a pre-determined schedule – delivers measurement integrity feedback in under two minutes. Smart Meter Verification technology is embedded in the transmitter functionality to verify calibration and the complete health of the sensor, drive, and electronics.

David Spitzer's Industrial Flow Measurement presents a rational procedure for flowmeter selection
that is based on factual information. Effective flowmeter selection requires a thorough
understanding of flowmeter technology in addition to a practical knowledge of the process and the
fluid. This book will help experienced engineers, technicians and others evaluate the appropriate
criteria rationally to arrive at the proper flowmeter selection.
With no complex interpretation and no interruption to process measurement, Smart Meter Verification delivers benefits to a range of applications and industries. These include a reduction in costs by minimising manpower and services to check or calibrate meters, increasing availability by allowing verification without process or measurement interruption and eliminating uncertainty by providing complete feedback whenever it is needed – with no process impact and no need for complex interpretation.

Smart Meter Verification also improves safety, health and environmental impacts by reducing trips to the field and the need to break process seals. The entire flow measurement meter is checked – sensor and electronics – for complete measurement certainty. Smart Meter Verification is easy to operate at the touch of a button, on a pre-determined verification schedule, or automatically based on process events.

Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters lead the industry in measurement performance and reliability, and are part of Emerson's broad range of intelligent, digital field devices that power thePlantWeb™ digital plant architecture. Further cost savings, increased plant availability, and enhanced safety and environmental compliance are achieved when the flowmeters are integrated into the PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
