New features for diagnotics suite

Dec 29, 2011 | Flow & Level

Emerson Process Management has expanded its Advanced HART Diagnostics Suite on the Rosemount 3051S Series of instrumentation for pressure, flow and level measurement. New features ­expand diagnostic coverage beyond transmitter electronics to identify and prevent abnormal process and installation issues.

The new Power Advisory Diagnostic helps ensure the integrity of the electrical loop by detecting unwanted changing electrical conditions such as water in the terminal housing, ground loop issues, corrosion of terminals or an unstable power supply.

Statistical Process Monitoring technology measures and analyses previously unseen process noise, providing intelligent process insight. This has led to a significant expansion in the range of process diagnostic applications such as detection of furnace flame instability, incipient distillation column flooding and valve or pump cavitation.
