DCS With Breakthrough 4 Tube Technology and Larger Sizes Endress Hauser Promass Q Finds New Roles in Oil and Gas 1 400x275

Promass Q 300/500, the high-tech Coriolis flowmeter series from Endress+Hauser for demanding fluids, now boasts revolutionary 4-tube technology, opening up numerous additional applications in the oil and gas industry in particular – for example, as a highly accurate duty meter for custody transfer and fiscal metering, or as a precision reference device (master meter) for on-site verification measurements. Furthermore, Promass Q now is available for three larger pipe sizes: DN 150 (6”), DN 200 (8”) and DN 250 (10").

Compared to Coriolis flowmeters with two measuring tubes, four-tube measurement allows up to 25% higher flow rates. This accelerates all transactions and ultimately saves money. For example, it reduces standstill times for loading and unloading oil tankers, resulting in lower charges.
