ABB’s new ProcessMaster calculator

06 February 2009

Find out how you could make your process more efficient by using ABB’s new online ProcessMaster calculator.

Demonstrating the effect of a 0.1% drift in accuracy over a sustained period, the calculator highlights the potential savings that operators could achieve by using ABB’s new ProcessMaster flowmeter.

Over the course of just one year, even a small change in flowmeter accuracy could result in potentially thousands of pounds of wasted profit. To enable you to find out how much you could be saving, the calculator enables you to test various operating scenarios across different industries. As well as different liquid types, pipe sizes and operating hours, you can also set the number of flowmeters being used in your process, with the results able to be printed for further action if required.

'The accuracy of any flowmeter is important especially if the measured fluid is expensive,' says Tony Hoyle, ABB’s UK flow products manager. 'Even though the accuracy variation may only seem to be small, you could be left counting the costs, with your profits quite literally trickling away. In these cost-conscious times, the ProcessMaster calculator provides the ideal tool for helping you to quantify your losses so that you can take action to turn them back into profit.'

Part of ABB’s FlowMaster family, the ProcessMaster flowmeter is designed to maintain high accuracy. Self-cleaning and double-sealed electrodes ensure enhanced reliability and performance. The use of high frequency excitation, combined with advanced filtering, further improves measurement accuracy by significantly reducing the impact of fluid and electrode noise by up to 65 per cent.

Advanced on-board diagnostics continuously track accuracy, with instant alerts issued in the event of performance being compromised. With this new technology now available users should be reviewing there existing flow measurement arrangements and looking at the real cost of poor accuracy ProcessMaster calculator helps quantify this.
