Emerson has released the Rosemount MS Slurry Sensor with the Rosemount 8782 Slurry Transmitter, a slurry magnetic flow meter specifically designed for high noise and slurry applications for use in pulp and paper, oil and gas and mining industries.
The Slurry Magnetic Flow Meter, or Slurry Mag, provides a flow measurement solution for customers with fluids that contain large solids, pulp or sand, or that experience high process noise or signal instability. Featuring the latest advanced signal processing that is the first to adapt to changing process conditions in real time, the Slurry Mag eliminates noise from the flow signal without using excessive damping.
The Slurry Mag includes more standard diagnostics such as the grounding and wiring fault detection that helps ensure the meter is installed correctly the first time. Optional advanced process diagnostics help provide insight into performance through a high process noise detection diagnostic as well as enable proactive maintenance in applications where coating may be a concern, such as in pulp digester applications where pitch from the wood fibres may result in coating of the meter.
The 8782 transmitter contains Emerson’s patented Smart Meter Verification, capabilities providing a simplified means of troubleshooting or verifying the meter, taking a process that used to take hours down to minutes. While the 8782 transmitter is designed to work with the MS sensor, it is also compatible with existing 8707 installations.
