4 Popular Flow Products Used in the Chemical Processing Industry

Flammable and toxic substance processing presents a wide range of safety and logistical challenges. Chemical plants and facilities must be able to achieve pure product quality according to customer specifications — all while ensuring optimal safety and efficiency.

To achieve these goals, chemical plants must operate with the following in mind:

  • Optimal process efficiency
  • Low energy consumption
  • Environmental and worker safeguards in place

Meeting these goals requires the use of high-quality, reliable measurement devices that allow users to easily control and manage complex chemical processes such as extraction, reaction, separation, and filtration. At Endress+Hauser, we offer a wide range of sophisticated liquid and gas measurement tools to meet all types of chemical processing needs.

Endress+Hauser’s Measurement Devices

Promass F 200 Flowmeter

img-promass-f200-vert.jpgThis robust, loop-powered Coriolis flowmeter provides the highest measurement performance possible for liquids and gases. This model can be used in a wide range of applications and features Heartbeat Technology™, seamless system integration, HistoRom data storage, and a simple operation concept (HMI).

The Promass F 200 also offers the highest process safety rating (rated for secondary containment, purge connections, and rupture disks), and features dedicated wetted parts for chemical and process applications.

It also allows for space-saving installation, as there are no inlet/outlet runs, and guarantees safe operations in even the most hazardous areas. Producing highly reliable, accurate data (developed per IEC 61508 with NAMUR NE 107 clear text diagnostics), the Promass F 200 ensures unbeatable process safety at all times with its built-in Heartbeat Technology.

Promag P 200 Flowmeter

A robust electromagnetic flowmeter with genuine loop-powered technology, the Promag P 200 is specifically designed for corrosive liquids and high-to-medium temperatures. Features include Heartbeat Technology™, seamless system integration, HistoRom data storage, and a simple operation concept (HMI).

This model has the highest process safety rating, and features dedicated wetted parts for chemical and process applications. Its full-bore design ensures minimal pressure losses, and it has no moving parts, which means it’s maintenance-free.

Capable of reliable, safe operation in hazardous areas, the Promag P 200 is developed per IEC 61508, with NAMUR NE 107 clear text diagnostics. Optimal process safety is ensured at all times thanks to its built-in Heartbeat Technology.

Proline Promass F 300 Coriolis Flowmeter

img-promass-f-300-8f3b-ch-hori02-pp-01.jpgAllowing for optimal accuracy, this robust flowmeter features a compact, easily accessible transmitter, and its measuring principle operates independently of physical fluid properties such as viscosity and density. This model offers the highest measurement performance for both liquids and gases under demanding process conditions.

The Proline Promass F 300 also has the highest process safety rating possible, and is immune to fluctuating and harsh environments.

It has fewer process measuring points than most models, offering multivariable measurement capabilities for flow, density, and temperature. And since there are no inlet/outlet runs, space-saving installation is possible.

Other key benefits include full access to process and diagnostic information and reduced complexity of operation thanks to numerous, freely combinable I/Os and fieldbuses. Integrated verification is possible thanks to the sophisticated built-in Heartbeat Technology™.

Promass Q 300

This highly innovative Coriolis flowmeter is specially designed for challenging applications. Featuring a compact transmitter, the Promass Q 300 is used in various applications. Features include Heartbeat Technology™, integrated web server, seamless system integration, HistoRom data storage, and a simple operation concepts (HMI).

Key advantages include a secured measuring quality — which allows for unmatched accuracy of mass flow, volume flow, and density — as well as optimized performance for liquids with entrained gases, thanks to the use of MFT (multi-frequency technology).

With multivariable measurement capabilities for flow, density, and temperature, you have the ability to get more information with fewer measuring points.

Space-saving installation is possible, as there are no inlet/outlet runs, and full access to process and diagnostic information is offered thanks to the numerous, freely combinable I/Os and fieldbuses. This configurable I/O functionality also allows for reduced complexity of operation.
