Emerson ‘breaking boundaries’ for Coriolis meters in high pressure offshore chemical injection applications
Emerson Process Management has introduced new Micro Motion F100P and HPC010P Coriolis flowmeters that provide ‘safe, reliable and highly repeatable performance’ within the toughest environments – such as in high pressure offshore chemical injection applications.
The F100P is a one-inch meter with a maximum pressure rating of 6250 psi (431 bar) that targets measurement for higher flow rates typical for hydrate inhibitors. The HPC010P is the first ultra-high pressure Coriolis meter developed by Emerson, and will have a maximum operating pressure of 15,000 psi (1034 bar) to address offshore chemical injection measurement for chemicals such as corrosion, scale and asphaltene inhibitors.
More accurate measurement and reduced maintenance
“These meters are breaking boundaries for Coriolis meters in high pressure applications where positive displacement meters are today’s legacy practice,” said Michelle Marceny, specialty products business manager for Emerson’s Micro Motion business. “Coriolis meters deliver new value to our customers through more accurate measurement and reduced maintenance over traditional PD technology.
“Coupled with Smart Meter Verification (on-line verification of meter performance), these meters provide safe, reliable and highly repeatable performance with reduced maintenance in the toughest applications,” she added.
The new flowmeters will help owner-operators and service companies overcome many challenges of chemical injection applications and reduce chemical costs while increasing operational efficiency and system reliability
said Inderpreet Shoker, analyst for the ARC Advisory Group.
ASME B31.1 certified flowmeters
These flowmeters will be available starting late 2015, and are the newest addition to Emerson’s chemical injection solution range, which includes Tescom flow control technology, Micro Motion mass flowmeters, and Rosemount pressure and temperature transmitters. The Micro Motion Coriolis and Rosemount 8800 Vortex Flowmeters have been certified to the ASME B31.1 Power Piping design standards, in addition to the existing B31.3 Process Piping design standard.
Rosemount 8800 vortex products that meet B31.1 design standards and Code Stamp certification include all carbon steel flanged, reducer and dual vortex meters with flange ratings up to and including ASME Class 1500 (PN 160) on 1-inch (DN25) through 8-inch (DN200) meter body sizes and ASME Class 600 (PN100) on 10-inch (DN250) and 12-inch (DN300) meter body sizes.
