The new Prosonic Flow G from Endress+Hauser is designed to work in demanding applications with natural gas, process gas or gas mixtures, either in the offshore or onshore sector. It measures both dry and wet gases with high reliability. Together with the extensive functionality of the Proline 300/500 transmitters, this opens up new options for process control and monitoring. Prosonic Flow G ensures precise measured values with unmatched repeatability, even with fluctuating process and ambient conditions. Robust industrial design for process temperatures of up to 150 °C (302 °F) and pressures up to 100 bar (1450 psi) makes it possible to operate the device over a long term without maintenance, thus saving time and money for the user.
Prosonic Flow G 300/500 can be supplied with extended gas analysis functions, e.g. for special applications or for increased process control requirements, customer-specific gases and gas mixtures (with up to 8 components). Depending on the selected gas type (pure gas, gas mixture, natural gas, etc.), this function enables the calculation of additional parameters and process variables.
The flowmeter offers a high degree of robustness in process temperatures of up to 150 °C (302 °F) and pressures up to 100 bar (1450 psi). All wetted parts are made of stainless steel and are compliant to NACE MR0175/MR0103. The ultrasound transducers are even available in titanium Grade 2. Since the entire sensor housing consists of corrosion-resistant stainless steel as well, Prosonic Flow G is especially suited for harsh ambient conditions in the offshore and onshore sectors. Prosonic Flow G has been developed to IEC 61508 (SIL) and is suited for safety-related applications.
Various transmitters are available for Prosonic Flow G: Proline 300 (compact version) or Proline 500 (remote version) with up to four inputs and outputs. They allow the simultaneous measurement of flow velocity, ultrasound speed, pressure and temperature. Access to all measurement and diagnostic data is possible at any time thanks to digital data transmission via HART or Modbus RS485, as well as via WLAN or the freely combinable inputs and outputs.
