Two Products Win Vaaler Awards

Every other year since 1964, Chemical Processing has bestowed Vaaler Awards on products and services that dramatically improve the operation and efficiency of plants. The 2009 Awards, which honor offerings commercialized between July 2007 and June 2009, go to:

• The Rosemount 848T Wireless Temperature Transmitter from Emerson Process Management; and
• Loop-Pro Version 5 from Control Station.

Entries were judged by an independent panel of technical professionals with diverse responsibilities and from a variety of industry sectors for their significance, novelty and broadness of applicability. Details about the winners will appear in the November issue of Chemical Processing.
