The SMV 3000 measures differential pressure, absolute pressure, and temperature to calculate compensated flow rates
The SMV 3000 measures differential pressure, absolute pressure, and temperature to calculate compensated flow rates. Because all of these variables can be measured with a single instrument fewer pipe intrusions are necessary, reducing the chance of leaks. SMV 3000 can reduce the cost of calculating compensated flow rates by as much as 60 percent. Lowering the cost of obtaining compensated flow allows flow calculations in areas where before it was too expensive to do so. Features and benefits of SMV 3000 Smart Multivariable Transmitters include:
- Lower wiring costs, much less capital spending on piping, manifolds, mounting, and safety barriers. This device may totally eliminate the need for a flow computer and can free a control system from performing complex flow calculations.
- Multiple measurements from the same pipe intrusion substantially reduce the number of leaks for better emission control, and greater regulatory compliance.
- Greater instrument accuracy and stability reduce calibration periods, so technicians can spend time on instruments that need more attention. Troubleshooting efforts and production downtime are dramatically decreased.
- Self-diagnostics indicate impending problems before effecting performance. Remote diagnostics saves the time and energy spent to travel to remote, geographically dispersed locations
