09/28/2017 | Siemens enhances digital Coriolis flow portfolio for process optimization

  To extend the numerous process-optimizing advantages of the digital Coriolis flowmeter platform to low-flow applications such as batching, dosing and filling of both liquids and gases, the Sitrans FCT030 and FCT010 digital transmitters can now be paired with the Sitrans F C MASS 2100 and Sitrans FC300 Coriolis sensors for small line sizes from DI 1.5 to DN 15. With this major enhancement to the product line, a broad range of users from chemical to automotive applications can benefit from market-leading mass flow accuracy of 0.1%, density accuracy of 0.5 kg/m3 and 100 Hz signal processing. The high-speed update rate ensures the highest precision for applications such as the filling of beverage bottles. more

10/24/2016 | Temperature measuring system lengthens the service lives of plants and improves product quality

  In the Sitrans TO500, Siemens is putting an innovative measuring system for fiberoptic temperature measurement onto the market. It enables complex temperature measurements and detection of the precise position of critical overtemperatures, for example in tube and tube-bundle reactors. The Sitrans TO500 is characterized by a large number of measuring points (up to 48 per measuring lance, depending on the temperature range) and the small diameter of the sensor measuring lance. This allows users to use a smaller protective tube in the reactor. This makes measurements more accurate, and so improves productivity and product quality. The precise determination of the temperature profile enables users to detect critical operating states in good time and initiate countermeasures. This lengthens the service lives of plants. The measuring system is especially suitable for use in the chemical industry. more

06/15/2016 | New ultrasonic level transmitter for hazardous locations
