For those here in North America, there is a good chance you’re braving extremely cold weather today. The Weather Channel captures the situation well in a post, Arctic Cold Blast Continues; Wind Chill Alerts For Over Half U.S. Population. And Canada makes this appear balmy. Back at the Emerson Exchange conference in Orlando this past […]

You may recall from a post, Eliminating Temperature Effects in DP Level Measurement, a cool new technology—Rosemount 3015S Electronic Remote Sensors (ERS) system. To avoid some of the temperature and response time issues that I highlighted in the post with capillary tubing, this technology includes: Two 3051S pressure transmitter… mounted on the high and low […]

Differential pressure (DP) measurement has long been used in tank and other vessel level measurement. Level is calculated by taking the difference in pressure divided by the specific gravity of the liquid. I caught up with Emerson’s Anshuman Prasad, a member of the Rosemount pressure measurement team. He described four traditional ways of measuring the […]

I connected with Emerson’s Don Verhaagen and Emily Vinella and got my hands on a whitepaper on DP (differential pressure) flowmeter installations in steam applications. The whitepaper, Top Mount Installation for DP Flowmeters in Steam Service, describes conditions where top mounting these devices helps to reduce installation costs, eliminates the need and expense for heat […]

Emerson’s Bill Zhou is in town this week, escaping the cold north of Minnesota. You may recall Bill, from his Emerson Exchange plugged impulse line video demonstration. Actually, his purpose was not to see the Austin wildflowers in full bloom, but to work with the DeltaV product application specialists to share some of the capabilities […]
