No More Piping Requirements for Mag Meters!
For years you've understood the best practice for optimal performance from a flowmeter meant installing the sensor with a minimum of five diameters upstream and two diameters downstream on straight run pipe. But that's no longer true!
Siemens recently tested SITRANS FM magnetic flowmeters in configurations that don't meet the suggested installation conditions. The SITRANS FM MAG 5100W and MAG 8000 still performed consistently enough that DANAK, an independent accreditation body in Denmark, approved the meters for accuracy of ±2.0%, even with zero diameters upstream and downstream of straight run pipe.
So now, you don't have to pay the high cost of modifying your process piping. You can mount these meters in less-than-optimal conditions and still get great performance.

Paperless Recorder Fits Your Existing Panel
Honeywell's latest addition to their paperless process recorder line is designed specifically as a direct drop-in replacement for your large format (10" or 12.1") circular chart recorders. It has the same 12.7" square panel cutout and 5.46" instrument depth as Partlow, ABB, and Honeywell DR series circular chart recorders, but it provides far more information and functionality.
The Honeywell DR Graphic recorder, shipping soon, supports up to 16 input channels with up to 12 digital inputs and four auxiliary outputs, and comes with Ethernet connectivity, web viewing, and Modbus communications to integrate to your plant network.
The Honeywell DR gives you the ability to see more than a circular chart, with room for digital data, trend and bargraph on its 12.1" color display.
