Collaborative problem solving occurs in all kinds of ways—face-to-face, over the phone, via email, and online in blogs, on-line communities, wikis, and social networks. I mention this because I saw some great guidance on flow meter coating challenges in refining applications from Emerson’s Tom O’Banion. It was posted on an internal Emerson knowledge sharing site, […]

Process safety is a top concern for manufacturers with hazardous areas. I received a question on a blog post, Calibrating Coriolis Flowmeters In-Situ: What is Emerson’s statement of proof test coverage (e.g. for SIS testing) for the in-situ tests described in this article? I turned to Emerson’s Tom O’Banion on the Micro Motion Coriolis flow […]
