ABB introduces MID/OIML R117 certified coriolis flowmeter for custody transfer applications in oil & gas
"I am extremely excited to introduce the MID/OIML R117 certified coriolis mass flowmeter at Offshore Europe this week. ABB’s full-line of coriolis flowmeters, introduced recently, have been very well received on the market and we have seen significant growth in business over the past few years. The addition of the MID/OIML R117 certified version delivers the custody transfer version our oil & gas customers have been asking for," said Frank Frenzel, Global Product Manager for Mass Flow, ABB Measurement & Analytics.
ABB has achieved fiscal measurements type approval according to MID / OIML R117 for its CoriolisMaster coriolis mass flowmeters. The meters are now approved for use at the highest MID / OIML accuracy classes of 0.3 or 0.5. The extensive OIML standard tests were conducted at NMI (www.nmi.nl) and TUVNEL (www.tuvnel.com) over the past few months.
The CoriolisMaster series offer some unique and practical advantages to customers in the oil and gas industry. Their compact design saves unnecessary on-site handling and installation costs and the easy to use Human Machine Interface (HMI) ensures savings on training and commissioning costs. The design of the sensor tubes enables CoriolisMaster to operate with significantly lower pressure losses compared to other meters. This saves more money by enabling users to select either smaller meter sizes or to run the meter with lower pumping costs.
Key features include: a wide range of output options including up to 3 current outputs, dual pulse/frequency outputs, Through-The-Glass (TTG) displays and Modbus communication. VeriMass built-in software diagnostics constantly checks for changes that could potentially affect meter accuracy, to avoid under or over billing. Meters are ideal for integrators and OEMs.
When combined with ABB flow computers, pressure and temperature transmitters, the ABB coriolis flowmeter delivers a world-class complete custody transfer solution. ABB delivers a high precision solution featuring higher density and volume flow accuracies as well as improved temperature and zero point stabilities.
