New advancements in multivariable pressure transmitter technology allow you to improve your flow measurement practices. By better understanding these advancements, you will be better able to quantify and optimize installed performance, select the right combination of compensation for a specific application, utilize diagnostics to enable predictive maintenance, and expand your insight with wireless technology.
The quality of a multivariable flow measurement depends on much more than the measurement accuracy of a device. Many users do not understand the full range of flow best practices enabled by new multivariable technologies and how they can be implemented to optimize a multivariable flow measurement. Scalable compensation enables you to select only the compensation types required for your specific application. Transmitter-RTD Sensor matching provides a more accurate process temperature measurement. Energy flow can be measured directly to optimize utility systems. Diagnostic and wireless advancements expand insight into the quality of multivariable flow measurements.
The key to the best control is a better measurement. This presentation will help you to understand and implement flow best practices enabled by new multivariable technology. This will help to improve actual installed performance and provide insight into the quality of your multivariable flow measurements. This ultimately leads to better process control as well as higher productivity through reduced downtime.
