Flowmeters and transmitters The sister companies have expanded their TRICOR line of Coriolis mass flowmeters. It now includes both stan- dard and advanced flowmeters and the TCD 9000 series transmit- ters that incorporate digital signal processing (DSP). The TCM "CLASSIC" series meets general industrial require- ments out of the box, while the TCMP "PRO" series has units with performance specifications and diagnostic capabilities for operation in challenging environments. The classic series includes TCE 8000 transmitters with an interface, standard calibration, and optional custom-calibrated meters with specifications. The pro series includes TCD 9000 transmitters with digital sig- nal processing and diagnostics, applicability for challenging liquid fluid conditions, logging and traceability functions, report fraction concentrations of two-part mixtures, I/O configurations with one- to-four channels fully configurable with programmable I/O options. The TCD 9000 series of transmitters has performance, diagnostics, and connectivity options. With a modern human-machine interface and a logging functionality, the DSP transmitters are a configura- tion and analysis tool. Other site features of the TCD 9000 series transmitters include gas void fraction improvement, application adaptive filtering, and sensor-checking and troubleshooting wizards. Operating from one universal power supply (24 V to 240 V), the TCD 9000 series flow transmitters have a graphical display, SD card connectivity, and log- ging and traceability functions. Units are available with direct or remote mounts and Profibus PA, Profibus DP, Modbus, or HART communication protocols. The transmitter is also available with Modbus-only communication without display. AW-Lake Company KEM Küppers Elektromechanik GmbH Modbus flow totalizer The ModQ Sentry is a Modbus flow totalizer that interfaces with pulse-type inductive turbine (and other) flowmeters to provide flow rates, accumulated totals, and status information. Units are configu- rable for volume and time settings and offer op- tions to configure the K factor to match the turbine. Powered by an internal lithium battery for standalone operations or an external 6–36 VDC power source, the ModQ Sentry provides a lo cal display along with a Modbus RS485 data port to inte- grate with programmable logic controller/supervisory control and data acquisition and distributed control sys- tems. The ModQ Sentry maintains an internal thirty-day log of daily flow totals for historical analysis or backup storage. The ModQ is pending Class 1 Division 2 certification for us- age in hazardous locations. Packaged in a polycarbonate housing rated NEMA 4X, the units are weathertight for outdoor environ- ments. Configured with local LCD and push buttons (or by using the company's tool kit), the ModQ manages data of turbine flow- meters in new and retrofit installations for a variety of industrial applications, such as oil and gas, metals and mining, water and wastewater, chemical, power, food and beverage, pulp and pa- per, aerospace, and pharmaceutical. SignalFire Wireless Telemetry Explosion-proof flow computer The E126 explosion-proof flow computer for corrected gas and liquid volume measurement mea - sures the actual flow, tempera- ture, and pressure and converts it with a gas formula to gas vol - ume at reference conditions. Daily and plant operations for run- ning work permit procedures are not interrupted, and even partial plant shutdowns can be avoided, as the covers do not need to be opened to operate, set, and modify the display functionalities because of the through-glass keypad. Fluidwell Gas metering Measurement IQ monitors the health of midstream metering sys - tems for operations, maintenance, and leadership teams. With diag - nostics, dashboards, and intelli- gence analytics, the system enables operators to increase metering re liability in the face of skills shortages, dispersed operations, and a complex hydrocarbon mix. Users can detect and correct mismeasure - ment and anticipate equipment failure. The system connects assets across all enterprise metering sta- tions and captures the data in the company's secure data center. Users can connect from any device with a web browser and receive customizable alerts on their mobile phones with the Experion App. Honeywell Process Solutions Gas measurement rate and total computer The HIT-4G is a gas measurement rate and total com- put er with temperature, pressure, and AGA-8 compress- ibility compensation. The HIT-4G is the second release in the company's HIT-4 series. The HIT-4G provides temperature- and pressure- compensated gas flow measurement and also has dual totalizers, Modbus, and data logging. With a six-digit rate display and separate eight-digit reset- table and nonresettable flow totalizers, the computer is configu- rable for 4–20 mA loop power or DC power. Several enclosure options are available, including the explo- sion-proof enclosure (North America, ATEX, and IEX), which is available in a powder-coated aluminum or stainless-steel option for maximum flexibility to meet harsh installation conditions.
