New Diagnostics for Flow Meter Intelligence

Emerson launched the latest version of its Smart Meter Verification software for Coriolis and magnetic flow meters, providing flow meter verification on demand and empowering process engineers, technicians and operators to look beyond the meter and make real-time decisions based on the most advanced meter and process diagnostics in the industry today.

New tools in the software allow users to fine-tune and adjust their engineering processes to ensure measurement confidence and performance. 

In addition to onboard diagnostics, the updated software accelerates implementation of companies’ Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) strategies with remote diagnostics, digital intelligence and multiple data points.

Rather than costly and time-consuming calibrations and laboratory testing, the advanced verification provides in situ calibration verification on demand with no impact on process or meter outputs. The new system also provides operators with crucial information on other flow issues across the plant.

Key features of the verification system include:

  • Innovative algorithms detect coating, corrosion and erosion in the meter  
  • New process diagnostic capabilities can identify if entrained gas is in the process and immediately send alerts.
  • Clear and transparent verification audit trails and advanced visual analysis and reporting software meets compliance requirements in lieu of meter calibration, inspection or removal. 
  • Smart Meter Verification generates detailed information on all sensors, including serial numbers, condition temperature and calibration information for simplified instrument and process compliance.

Emerson’s diagnostics are an easy-to-use, automatic tool for Micro Motion™ Coriolis and Rosemount™ magnetic flow meters that monitor the entire flow meter’s performance and integrity and are applicable in a variety of process industry sectors, including oil and gas and chemicals. P&GJ
