The UFM 3030 is a 3-beam in-line ultrasonic flowmeter for liquids. Like all ultrasonic flowmeters, it has no moving parts or fixtures in the sensor, making it extremely low-wearing and virtually maintenance-free. These characteristics were crucial when it came to the KROHNE UFM 3030's award as the “most innovative measuring solution.” The jury is made up of two members of the ISA, two representatives of Mexico's national oil company PEMEX, and two other industry experts

Alternative fuels was said to be one of the most discussed topics at this year's fair. Mexico is planning to increase the portion of domestically produced bioethanol when manufacturing automobile gas, thus promoting its own oil industry in the long term.

The focus of the trade fair, sponsored by by the American Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society (ISA), was process automation. ISA ExpoControl has been held since 1976.
