Measuring solutions size-up Perth Oil & Gas Expo

Instrumentation provider, Endress+Hauser, will display a range of measurement and automation solutions at the 2009 Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition in collaboration with strategic partner, Rockwell Automation.

A group of flow and pressure devices will be on display, each product with IEC hazardous area approval, along with SIL2 and maritime approvals, and will be integrated into the Rockwell control environment using HART and Foundation Fieldbus protocols.

The expo will run from 17th to 19th February 2009 at the Perth Exhibition Centre in Perth, Western Australia.

“Endress+Hauser is one of the few organisations in the world with over 50 years experience in designing, manufacturing and supplying highly specialised measuring solutions for the oil and gas industry,” sais Endress+Hauser Australia managing director, John Immelman.

The Endress+Hauser Promass 83F Coriolis flowmeter offers 0.05 per cent accuracy in custody transfer applications, according to the manufacturer, who also maintains that every Promass flowmeter is rigorously tested, and wet calibrated in advanced calibration facilities in Switzerland. This flowmeter will be on display at the expo.

“In the oil industry, the Promass I is ideal for massflow measurement, as well as viscosity as a separate output,” said a press release from the company.

Also on display will be the Prowirl 73F vortex flowmeter, which is not simply a volume-measuring device, but also offers a patented ‘Gas Engine’ which enables it to calculate mass flow and energy for all common gases and gas mixtures. The energy content of natural gas is calculated based on pre-programmed calorific values according to AGA-8 gross 1, AGA-8 DC92 and SGERG-88.

Also present will be the new Prosonic 92F flowmeter — the world’s only 2-wire loop powered inline ultrasonic flowmeter, according to Endress+Haser. This flowmeter is ideal for measuring the volumetric flow of ‘clean’ conductive and non-conductive liquids, specifically adapted for hydrocarbons.

Endress+Hauser’s solutions for enhancing safety and improving production efficiencies will be on display at the joint Endress+Hauser/Rockwell Automation Stand H32.
