Emerson’s new multivariable transmitter for oil and gas applications

Emerson Process Management’s new oil and gas multivariable transmitter, the Rosemount 4088, delivers superior measurement performance over the life of a well, ensuring consistent production and minimising service and equipment costs.

Transmitter for oil and gas applications

Emerson's Rosemount 4088 MultiVariable Transmitter is a new platform for upstream and midstream oil and gas applications that provides differential pressure, static pressure, and temperature measurement – all from a single transmitter.

Measurement accuracy and output efficiency

The advanced Rosemount 4088 extended range capability captures flow rate spikes above the upper range limit of the transmitter, to account for flow that would have traditionally been missed.

We designed the Rosemount 4088 to make a real difference in the way our customers operate their wells and manage oil and gas production,said Scott Nelson, vice president and general manager of Rosemount pressure products at Emerson Process Management.
Achieving a high level of measurement accuracy and output efficiency over the life of a well is a huge undertaking, and the Rosemount 4088 MultiVariable Transmitter will help companies meet their objectives.

Superior measurement performance

The Rosemount 4088 transmitter’s extended range capability delivers superior measurement performance for plunger lift measurement applications over the life of oil and gas wells. Its new sensor technology measures flow rate spikes, while still achieving excellent performance over the typical operating range.

By accurately measuring flow that is commonly missed, this extended range capability guarantees the accurate accounting of oil and gas production and could therefore potentially save companies thousands of dollars a year.

As wells mature, and process conditions change, maintaining accurate measurement instrumentation is critical to well stakeholders and leaseholders. The Rosemount 4088 MultiVariable transmitter offers stable performance over the life of the well, ensuring consistent production and minimizing service and equipment costs.

Reliable and stable signal

The Rosemount 4088 provides a reliable and stable signal transmitted through Modbus, BSAP, or MVS. This results in excellent data accuracy and more effective management of changing well conditions. It is typically integrated into a larger oil and gas production network by transmitting data to flow computers and RTUs.

The device is designed to easily integrate with Emerson’s flow computer products, such as the ROC, FloBoss, and ControlWave, but it can be used with any new or existing flow computer or RTU network that accepts Modbus input.
