Emerson Process Management has introduced Micro Motion Advanced Phase Measurement (APM), a software option available on the Model 5700 Transmitter. The software solution helps improve measurement accuracy across diverse industries in challenging multi-phase applications such as direct wellhead and separator net oil measurement in the oilfield and starch concentration for food and beverage plants.
This multiple phase measurement solution provides insight into the complete flow stream, including oil, water, and gas, through an intuitive, local display. Leveraging Emerson’s years of experience in providing solutions for process upsets or intermittent two-phase flow, Advanced Phase Measurement provides continuous, real-time production data for oil, water and gas void fraction.
“Advanced Phase Measurement was designed with production engineers in mind, providing insight into production trends with a single device to reduce capital and operating expenses,” says Kevin Borden, product manager. “You can track whether production is increasing or decreasing, allowing proactive management of changing field performance which ultimately equates to more dollars in your bottom line.”
Advanced Phase Measurement has also proven useful for the life sciences and chemical industries, providing critical measurement insight to reduce waste, maintain product quality, and identify process upsets even in the presence of multiple phases.
