EMERSON EXPANDS ITS PRESSURE GAUGE PORTFOLIO TO HELP PLANTS IMPROVE RELIABILITY The Rosemount Smart Pressure Gauge delivers safer and more reliable readings, enabling better visibility of field changes where an effective local display is necessary Emerson expands its pressure gauge portfolio to help plants improve reliability. 4 Emerson has introduced the Rosemount Smart Pressure Gauge to help users gain better visibility of field changes. The Smart Pressure Gauge utilises industry-proven Rosemount pressure sensor technology to deliver reliable pressure readings. With the flexibility to accommodate changing process conditions, the Smart Pressure Gauge gives up to 150X overpressure protection and provides a safer field environment. By utilising two layers of process isolation, the Smart Pressure Gauge can help prevent process failures from becoming dangerous by preventing employee contact with process fluid by keeping it safely inside the pipe. The gauge’s Rosemount pressure sensor technology replaces 100-year-old bourdon tube gauge technology, eliminating weak points common to mechanical gauges. Mechanical gauges are plagued with quality and reliability issues associated with overpressure, vibration, corrosion, extreme temperatures and accidental damage, and can contribute to numerous reliability and safety issues in plant environments. Additionally, mechanical gauges are unable to communicate device status. With up to a 10-year life, which reduces maintenance cost and time, and increased visibility from a large 4.5-inch face with status indicator light, the gauge provides easy field visibility. The new Rosemount Smart Pressure Gauge expands the Emerson gauge portfolio. “The industry response to the Rosemount Wireless Pressure Gauge has been positive, and now with the addition of the Smart Pressure Gauge, our customers have even more options for upgrading their problematic gauges,” said Sven Hendrickson, product manager for pressure gauges.

MEASUREMENT UNFAZED BY HARSH REALITY FRONT COVER STORY VEGAFLEX guided radar sensors allow a choice between level and interface measurement in industrial processes More flexible, more efficient processes paired with completely reliable status monitoring? Yes, VEGAFLEX 81 guided radar sensors can provide that, and also give the user a choice. They combine level measurement and optional interface detection in one single innovative device. In addition to efficiency, they ensure an optimal price-performance ratio in many processes. “Two in one” is the motto of the skilful combination of two measurement applications built into VEGAFLEX 81. These multi-talent instruments are suitable for all types of liquids, whether in storage tanks, standpipes, dosing containers or large tank farms. The range of media they can measure with great precision ranges from bitumen to liquefied gases. Thanks to the special design, even ammonia can be measured without difficulty. Your advantage in terms of cost and safety: VEGAFLEX 81 needs only one mounting hole in order to measure the level and the layer interface continuously at the same time, particularly in pressure vessels. In addition to VEGAFLEX 81, which has been optimized for use in liquids, there are three more instrument versions in the guided radar series 80 – each designed for a special area of application. VEGAFLEX 82, for example, is ideal for measuring bulk solids under extremely harsh conditions. When foodstuffs or aggressive media have to be measured, VEGAFLEX 83 is the best choice. With its resistant materials and suitably finished surfaces, the instrument meets the high requirements of hygiene and durability. VEGAFLEX 86 measures practically any fluid, and that maintenance free under extreme pressure and temperature conditions, even in applications with heavy build-up, foam or condensate. And then there’s VEGAFLEX 86, which is predestined for applications with extreme temperatures and high pressures, for example in distillation columns. VEGAFLEX series 80 guided radar sensors are maintenance free and ensure, not least thanks to their intelligent electronics, reliable measured values and safety for the entire processing facility.
