NEW PRODUCTS

Flowmeter for water, wastewater and utility applications Emerson Process Management has introduced the Rosemount 8750W magnetic flowmeter for water, wastewater and utility applications. The robust, easy-to-use flowmeter is designed to help utility operators reduce life-cycle costs and unplanned shutdowns. It offers diagnostics that help users take advantage of improved installa-

to verify calibration without shutting down the process and without the need for complicated external equipment, reducing the time and cost associated with meter verification procedures. The diagnostic proves the health of the magnetic flowmeter system as required by regulatory agencies and also provides the necessary documentation required by environmental agencies for regulated flow measurements. The diagnostic also provides the documentation needed for critical applications like effluent flows. To simplify use, all diagnostic information can be quickly accessed through the easy-to-use local operator interface (LOI), the 475 field communicator or AMS suite predictive maintenance software.

tion sensors from Balluff detect deviations to the horizontal on an axis over a full 360°, contact free, with a high accuracy of 0.1°, a resolution of 0.01° and a temperature drift of 0.01%/10 K. The inclination sensors feature a compact and robust metal housing with an enclosure rating of IP67 and can be easily installed in systems with limited space. With an expanded temperature range of -40 to + 85°C, the sensors can be used in outdoor applications. The inclination sensors are based on a capacitive measuring principle and are equipped with a liquid-based measuring cell. These consist of four capacitors filled with a liquid dielectric. Depending on the inclination of the sensor, the ‘horizon’ of this medium covers the capacitors differently, causing the capacitance - as measure for the inclination angle - to change. The analog output signal from

The fully welded construction of the sensor with isolated terminal blocks and hermetically sealed coil compartment make the product dependable for utility and water applications. In addition, the dual compartment transmitter housing and selfdraining conduits keep the electronics isolated from moisture and contamination.

4-20 mA analog output signal is scaled linearly over the angular range of 360°C. Balluff Pty Ltd www.balluff.com.au
