Yesterday, we looked at calibration of Coriolis mass flow meters in natural gas applications and mentioned piecewise linearization (PWL), but did not delve into it. Let’s do with today’s post. I found a presentation by Emerson’s Tonya Wyatt, Fine Tuning Coriolis Flow Meter Calibrations Utilizing Piece-Wise Linearization. The PWL calibration method basically looks at the […]

We often discuss aspects of some of the basic measurements in process control—flow, temperature, pressure, level, etc. Some other very important measurements in applications such as custody transfer, liquid interface detection, blending, separating, evaporating and product change—are density and viscosity—due to the changing composition of hydrocarbon liquids. In a whitepaper, Application of Density Meters to […]

In the U.S, a craft brewer or beer-maker, is defined as small, independent and traditional. A Fortune article highlighted the growth in craft brewing in the United States: As of the end of 2017, there were 6,266 craft breweries operating in the U.S., more than double the total from 2013—and a 16% increase from 2016. […]

Many technologies are available to measure flow. Electromagnetic flow meters, also known as magnetic flow meters or magmeters, are well suited for a variety of applications across a range of industries including pulp and paper, metals and mining, water and wastewater, food and beverage, chemical and petrochemical and oil and gas. Because the magnetic flow […]
