Emerson Enhances Rosemount 3051 Pressure Products

Emerson Process Management has introduced several enhancements to its Rosemount 3051 pressure products intended to help users maximize operational control by reducing the total cost of ownership and maintenance work orders.

The units now offer standard reference accuracy of ±0.04% of span down to a 10:1 turndown, which drives total performance in typical operating conditions to ±0.12% of span. The improved performance enables more accurate control, allows the plant’s operations to run closer to set levels, and increases product quality and throughput.

A new Power Advisory Diagnostics tool allows users to identify electrical loop issues at the instrument or anywhere in the loop. With a three-step activation and guided troubleshooting, users can use the tool to prevent costly outages and minimize the time spent diagnosing a problem.

In addition, the 3051 features a Local Operator Interface (LOI), adding straightforward menus and internal and external configuration buttons for on-the-spot commissioning. Standardizing on the 3051 with LOI for pressure, DP flow and DP level applications results in simplified, consistent configuration procedures, reducing investment in maintenance tools, training and overall costs of ownership.
