Rota Yokogawa celebrates centenary

18 August 2009

Rota Yokogawa will celebrate its 100th birthday in October 2009. The flow measurement specialist has been part of the Tokyo based Yokogawa group since 1995 and was founded as Deutsche Rotawerke in Aachen, Germany.

When it was founded in 1909, the company originally focused on the recently invented Rotameter. The measuring principle of this device is based on a rotating float – hence the name "Rota". The brand name Rotameter is now often used as a synonym for the float-based flowmeters of any manufacturer.

In 1940 production was relocated to the town of Wehr in South Baden. In 1993 Rota introduced the first Rotamass, a flowmeter using the Coriolis principle. The existing co-operation with the Yokogawa Group was given a new basis in 1995 when Rota became a subsidiary of Yokogawa Europe B.V. Today,Rota Yokogawa is the "Flow Centre of Excellence" responsible throughout the global Yokogawa Group for measurement technologies, such as mass flow measurement using the Coriolis principle and the Rotameter.
