Flowmeter Can Cut Installation Costs
ABB 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 ABB’s new FlowMaster range, the OriMaster is a one-piece flowmeter that comes fully factory configured and pressure tested, solving many of the problems associated with sizing, selection, installation and operation of conventional orifice plate installations.
Suitable for clean liquids, gases and steam applications in line sizes from 1 inch to 8 inches (DN25 to DN200) and at pressures up to 1450 psi (100 bar), the OriMaster combines all the major components needed for an orifice plate installation in one assembly. This is said to eliminate the need for users to source and install a separate manifold, transmitter and impulse piping, typically cutting the cost of installation and commissioning by up to 50%.
