The Products section showcases several innovations and highlights within a complete portfolio for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement as well as process analytics: KROHNE introduces the re-newed OPTIFLEX range of TDR level transmitters. Just like the OPTIWAVE portfolio of 6…80 GHz radar level transmitters was renewed in 2017, the TDR series comprises six devices, each specifically designed for a certain area of application.
The OPTIMASS portfolio of mass flowmeters has been supplemented with large line sizes up to DN400/ 16″, representing the highest capacity Coriolis flowmeters on the market. KROHNE now offers a complete Coriolis portfolio for flow rates from 0.3 kg/h up to 4,600 t/h / 0.01 lb/min up to 169,021 lb/min. Proclaimed for 2018 are also innovations in Bluetooth connectivity for convenient device configuration, biogas measurement, and clamp-on flow measurement.
The Solutions section features many topics where KROHNE offers new integrated solutions, e.g. PROFINET industrial Ethernet communication. Currently available for all x400 OPTIMASS Coriolis flowmeters as well for all x300 OPTIFLUX electromagnetic flowmeters, PROFINET will subsequently be available for all converter platforms. To showcase the use and possibilities of PROFINET for ACHEMA visitors, KROHNE set up a joint demonstration model together with PhoenixContact and other industry partners. Next, to communication, several other joint models show the scope of KROHNE as a supplier of complete system solutions, e.g. turnkey metering skids for hydrocarbons or tanker loading systems. Further innovations on the rise for 2018 include enhanced systems for wet gas measurement and leak detection and localization on pipelines.
Services that target the demand for engineered solutions and project management in instrumentation projects are also presented on the booth, e.g. from commissioning up to metrological accreditation of custody transfer applications according to MID MI-005. The exhibition is rounded off by calibration and in-situ device verification services and free eLearning offerings for the process industry, including a new course on “Driving process efficiency through measurement technology”.
