Endress+Hauser Promass Q flowmeter

Endress+Hauser wins the Swiss Technology Award in the Innovation Leaders category for the Promass Q flowmeter. The Coriolis-based flowmeter, developed especially for applications in the oil and gas and food and beverage industries, was cited for its outstanding measurement accuracy, even in difficult operating conditions, according to the company. The prize was awarded last week during the Swiss Innovation Forum.

The Swiss Technology Award is reportedly considered Switzerland's most important innovation and technology prize. Endress+Hauser was one of nine finalists out of 60 applicants who were selected to present their product or technological innovation to the main jury. The winners were chosen and recognized in front of more than 1,000 guests from business, science and government during the Swiss Innovation Forum in Basel, Switzerland.

The Switzerland-based measurement and automation technology specialist places a high value on research and development. In 2016, global R&D investments at the Endress+Hauser Group were 7.8% of sales, according to the company

The Promass Q’s multi-frequency technology (MFT) for Coriolis flow measurements makes it possible to actively compensate for measurement errors caused by entrained gas trapped in the medium, all in real-time. Integrated diagnostics and heartbeat technology allow verification of the sensors, measurement tubes and measurement electronics while the process is running. This guarantees maximum product and process safety, according to Endress+Hauser.
