HOUSTON, TEXAS (November 21, 2006) - Responding to the findings of extensive customer and field research, Emerson Process Management has launched the new Daniel® Senior® Model 2000(TM) Orifice Fitting to deliver improved safety, maintenance, and up-time. The Senior Model 2000 extends the proven technologies of the original Senior Orifice Fitting to include new innovative features while meeting all applicable API 14.3, AGA 3 and ISO 5167 specifications.
Maintenance and safety advantages of the Daniel Senior Model 2000 Orifice Fitting are realized by a new greaseless isolation valve that provides a bubble-tight seal. Regular maintenance visits for valve lubrication are eliminated with this design, as well as potential personnel exposure to content in the pipeline. Further, a redundant seal mechanism is incorporated to ensure continuous long-term operation.
The Daniel Senior Model 2000 increases operation up-time and further reduces maintenance by use of a plate release mechanism that assists in removing a stuck plate carrier from the metering position. The design also incorporates standard o-rings throughout, allowing for reusability and longer life.
Safety of operation is enhanced as the Daniel orifice fitting has incorporated a retractable locking pin to secure the isolation valve in position when closed. This pin requires a deliberate action by the operator to open the isolation valve, thereby enhancing safety of operation in the product.
Emerson is the oil and gas fiscal flow measurement technology leader as a result of its superior Daniel custody transfer products, systems, and services. Daniel Measurement Services provide worldwide customers start-up, training, and service twenty-four hours a day.
