WirelessHART Conductivity Transmitter Well Suited For Many Applications
Emerson Process Management has expanded its Smart Wireless analytical field instrument solutions with the release of the industry’s first WirelessHART contacting conductivity transmitter, the Rosemount Analytical Model 6081-C. Since more than half of end user liquid analytical applications require conductivity measurement, the new wireless conductivity transmitter is an important addition to the recently introduced model 6081-P wireless pH/ORP transmitter.
Industrial conductivity measurement is valuable for control such as where measuring and controlling conductivity of chemical concentration allows effective scrubber performance, and detecting leakage of cooling water from jackets or heat exchangers into processes allows avoiding of contamination, or leakage of the process into the cooling water enables avoidance of fouling or corrosion. It is valuable for equipment protection as well, such as its use for monitoring boiler feedwater and permeate to ensure pure mineral-free water which is important for protecting condensers, heaters, pumps, piping, boilers, and turbines that produce power.
Wireless technology is ideal for conductivity applications that are too difficult to reach, too dangerous to access, or too costly to perform with a wired transmitter.
“The success of the Model 6081-P pH/ORP analyzer introduced last year has only increased customer demand for a conductivity version of our wireless transmitter,” commented John Wright, vice president, Emerson Process Management, Rosemount Analytical Liquid. “As with our wired analytical family, our customers want the broadest possible range of wireless analytical measurements. The wider range of measurements enables their leverage of a common design, reducing training time and increasing application flexibility for end users, integrators, skid manufacturers and OEMs.”
