Stainless steel housing increases reliability and longevity of the Rosemount® 8800D series in corrosive environments
CHANHASSEN, MINN (February 3, 2010) -- Emerson Process Management announces the expansion of its Rosemount® 8800D Series of Vortex flowmeters to include stainless steel transmitter housings, which are often required for applications in corrosive environments. This new stainless steel housing increases the reliability and longevity of the transmitter in these environments, greatly reducing the overall cost of ownership.
The non-clogging, minimal leak point design of the Rosemount flowmeters are valued by industries such as offshore oil and gas and other marine applications. The corrosive environments caused by saltwater and salt in the air make these industries good candidates for stainless steel transmitter housings. In addition, numerous chemical processes and clean-in-place solutions found in food, beverage and life science applications can result in corrosion and premature failure.
The stainless steel transmitter housing is available on the broad range of Rosemount Vortex flowmeters, including wafer and flanged meters, dual sensor and Reducer(TM) Vortex flowmeters.
Rosemount 8800D flowmeters are part of Emerson's broad range of intelligent, digital field devices that power the PlantWeb® architecture. Further cost savings, increased plant availability, and enhanced safety and environmental compliance are achieved when the transmitters are integrated into the PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
