Promass Q flowmeter wins Swiss technology award

20 November 2017

The Promass Q, from Endress+Hauser, won the Swiss Technology Award in the Innovation Leaders category. 

The Coriolis-based flowmeter, developed for applications in the oil & gas and food & beverage industries, was cited for its outstanding measurement accuracy, even in difficult operating conditions. 

"With the Promass Q, we managed to combine state-of-the-art technology, innovative design and superior quality in a single instrument. We are proud that our efforts have been recognised with the Swiss Technology Award," said Dr. Martin Anklin, who is responsible for the development of Coriolis instruments at Endress+Hauser Flowtec in Reinach, the Group's center of competence for flow measurement technology. 

The multi-frequency technology (MFT) for Coriolis flow measurements allows the Promass Q to actively compensate for measurement errors caused by entrained gas trapped in the medium, all in real-time. Integrated diagnostics and Heartbeat technology furthermore allow verification of the sensors, measurement tubes and measurement electronics while the process is running. This guarantees maximum product and process safety.
