Cut installation costs in half with this orifice flowmeter

By Gerald Ondrey |

ABB Instrumentation (Warminster, Pa.; www.abb.com/instrumentation) has cut the cost of installing orifice-plate flowmeters by up to half with the launch of its OriMaster compact orifice DP flowmeter. The latest in the company’s FlowMaster range, the OriMaster comes fully factory configured and pressure tested, solving many of the problems associated with sizing, selection, installation and operation of conventional orifice-plate installations, says ABB. OriMaster installation is simplified by its wafer-design, orifice-carrier assembly, enabling it to be fitted into an existing space between standard pipe flanges. Because incorrect centralizing of orifice devices can cause additional metering errors of 3%, the OriMaster comes with a centering tool to ensure correct placement in the pipeline. The flowmeter is suitable for clean liquids, gases and steam applications in line sizes from 1 to 8 in. (DN25 to DN200) and pressures up to 1,450 psi (100 bars). The OriMaster combines all major components needed for installation in one assembly, thereby eliminating the need for users to source and install a separate manifold, transmitter and impulse piping, typically cutting the cost to install and commission by up to 50%, says ABB.   Click…
