With the increasing degree of automation found in plant construction and operation, functional reliability is playing an enhanced role with respect to the total cost of a plant. Therefore it is crucial that the right components contribute to a plant’s operation (for example, comparatively low-cost pumps that are small, but effective) as unscheduled plant shutdowns that result in production downtime quickly accumulate into high costs that disturb the value-creating process and have a negative effect on the overall bottom line.
Turbine Meter Enables Flow, Density, Temperature & Pressure Measurement
Spirax Sarco's EMCO branded MassTracker insertion turbine mass flowmeter line is featured in the following video. The instrument features multivariable measurement versatility, combining measurements of mass or volumetric flow, density, temperature and pressure in one device. Tappable into lines from three inches to 80 inches at full flow conditions, the MassTracker can be mounted virtually anywhere. The hot-tap capabilities allows the instrument to be installed and serviced without process shutdown — a feature that not only saves on labor costs, but also avoids disruption of critical processes.
