The flowmeter’s vortex sensor is isolated from the process, making it possible to maintain without requiring a process shutdown

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINNESOTA (April 27, 2010) – Emerson Process Management introduces a new offering to the vortex flowmeter family, the Rosemount® 8800D CriticalProcess™ Vortex flowmeter, designed to increase plant availability and enhance overall safety.  This new flowmeter enhances online vortex sensor maintainability, while providing an added level of safety on critical applications.   

The vortex sensor in the Rosemount 8800D vortex flowmeter is isolated from the process, making it possible to maintain the vortex sensor without requiring a process shutdown, greatly increasing process availability.  Sensor verification and maintenance can be costly on traditional vortex applications.  With traditional vortex flowmeters, users typically need to shutdown or bypass their process in order to verify performance of the vortex sensor.  

The CriticalProcess Vortex’s unique ability to insure the vortex sensor is isolated from the process enhances safety by limiting personnel exposure, and maximizes product throughput by eliminating the need to shutdown the process to maintain a vortex sensor.  In addition to the ability to maintain the vortex sensor online the Rosemount 8800D Vortex flowmeter has the ability to verify the health of the transmitter by simulating the vortex flow signal.  The combination of these two features enables complete verification of the electrical components of the flowmeter while the process is up and running.  The Rosemount 8800D CriticalProcess Vortex is the ideal flowmeter solution for processes requiring maximum availability.

Rosemount 8800D flowmeters are part of Emerson’s broad range of intelligent, digital field devices that power the PlantWeb™ architecture.  Further cost savings, increased plant availability, and enhanced safety and environmental compliance are achieved when the transmitters are integrated into the PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
