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 […]

At the Emerson Exchange conference in Austin, Emerson’s Afton Coleman, Erik Mathiason and Tonya Wyatt presented, Improve Safety Proof Test Capabilities with Intelligent Instrumentation. Their abstract: Safety Instrumented Systems are designed to be the most critical line of defense against a catastrophic failure. Ensuring that each component of the system is working properly is required, […]
