Proper flow consulting and selection reduce piping, design and installation costs
BOULDER, COLO (October 31, 2016) — Emerson and FLEXIM are collaborating to help process customers optimize their flow process design, flow meter selection and flow meter installation on capital projects to reduce execution risk and costs.
With customers under severe pressure to reduce schedule and cost targets on capital projects, Emerson’s project teams, using FLEXIM’s clamp-on, ultrasonic flow metering portfolio in combination with Emerson’s broad, in-line flow metering offering, are able to consult early and throughout the project cycle to reduce engineering, piping and installation costs as well as schedule risk.
FLEXIM’s non-intrusive flow metering offering is the leader in the clamp-on, ultrasonic marketplace and provides the best reliability and the most advanced capability when addressing difficult applications with a non-intrusive flow solution. This joint cooperation will improve delivery of the exact flow solution needed by clients while supporting Emerson’s Project Certainty – a transformational approach to enabling top-quartile performance in capital projects.
By empowering project teams with flow expertise to work with clients early in project phases, Emerson has consistently eliminated cost, accommodated change and reduced complexity on capital projects. The non-intrusive nature of FLEXIM’s ultrasonic flow meters makes this product a powerful contributor to reduced engineering, piping and installation costs as well as schedule risk, given that it can be installed after piping is fabricated. Emerson and FLEXIM will collaborate to ensure less time is spent on engineering and installation through the selection of the optimal flow solution for a given application by leveraging the most comprehensive flow portfolio available.
“In today’s market, we are seeing that our customers are looking for us to advise them early in their project cycle on technology to ensure streamlined and cost-effective project execution,” said Bret Shanahan, vice president of flow solutions, Emerson Automation Solutions. “We are pleased to be working with FLEXIM to provide our clients with the most appropriate flow solution that can be applied and support greater capital efficiency.”
“FLEXIM is excited to partner with Emerson on capital projects; our flexible, world-class, non-invasive meters are a perfect fit with Emerson’s experienced project teams,” said Guido Schwanekamp, managing director sales and marketing of FLEXIM. “Together we will be able to offer fully customized solutions that are tailor made for a wide variety of capital projects aimed at reducing capital expenditures while increasing efficiency for our clients and reducing total cost of ownership at the same time.”
