Emerson now offers the most complete range of mass flow measuring technology for cryogenic fluids in custody transfer applications
BOULDER, COLO (November 10, 2009) - Emerson Process Management announces that it has obtained an extension to its MID (Measurement Instrument Directive) certificate to include Micro Motion® ELITE® Coriolis meters for low flow applications. The Micro Motion meters are ideally suited to cryogenic applications for dispensing liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel to motor vehicles, including public transport and trucks.
MID certification means that when these new, compact ELITE flowmeters are used as a component of a complete measuring system, such as a fuel dispenser, it is not necessary for the dispenser manufacturer to type test and certify the devices - saving both time and money for the dispenser manufacturer.
“The extension of the MID-approval to these smaller size flowmeters represents an important addition to the Emerson range of Coriolis measuring instruments for LNG applications, including custody transfer” said Denis Henrot, Vice President of Micro Motion in Europe. “Our highly accurate Coriolis flowmeters can now be used for low flow applications in fuelling dispensers, in addition to the established high flow applications in pipelines, tankers and storage systems.”
The MID certificate, according to Directive 2004/22/EC, now includes the Micro Motion ELITE Coriolis meters (CMF025, CMF050, CMF100, HC2 and HC3) for measuring mass in cryogenic applications. Emerson already has approvals for its Micro Motion ELITE models CMF 200, CMF 300 and CMF 400 flowmeters for cryogenic applications, which were obtained in 2006.
Emerson can also act as a manufacturer of a measuring system and has therefore also obtained a system approval from NMi (Nederlands Meet Instituut) for its Micro Motion ELITE series flowmeters, including electronics Model 700, 1700, 2500, 2700, 3500 and 3700 for cryogenic applications.
In addition, to meet the needs of manufacturers of both LNG and CNG fuel dispensers, Emerson offers the Micro Motion CNG050 Compressed Natural Gas meter, which is specifically designed to meet the challenges of measuring mass of compressed natural gas. With over 30,000 installations worldwide, the CNG050 is the preferred meter of the leading CNG dispensing manufacturers.
