Measurement & Instrumentation
Persistent droughts and heat waves in many regions of the world are forcing cities and municipalities to place a stronger focus on the reliability of the water supply not only by optimizing their networks but also by searching for additional sources that could contribute to long-term reliability. Two examples in the German county of Lörrach show how measurement and automation technology specialist Endress+Hauser supports numerous communities with innovative flow instruments.
Goods and products manufactured with industrial processes often contain water in various concentrations. To date, laboratory instruments have been the most common tools for measuring moisture. While the processes are highly precise, they also have disadvantages. Endress+Hauser is enhancing an existing level measurement technology so that it’s also capable of determining material characteristics, radar-based sensors supply real-time information regarding material moisture.
The decarbonization of energy systems has seen greater interest in the production, distribution and use of hydrogen. To ensure it can become a viable business, custody transfer for hydrogen is essential and this is now being made possible using the latest generation of measurement technologies, as Ricardo Mendes, Global Product Line Manager, ABB explains.
