Letter from the Corporate Management Dear Customers, Communication techniques are becoming ever more complex, from the field through to the control level. At the same time the demands for recording physical measured variables such as flow rates, fill levels, temperature, pressure and analysis parameters are constantly growing. The principal requirement in this respect is absolute reliability of the measured values. This means the measuring equipment, even when subjected to disruptive influences such as changing flow profiles or inclusion of gas bubbles, must always deliver reliable values,...

Always the right pressure. Anytime. Any Process. Pressure is one of the most commonly measured parameters in the process industry. Today, in over 40 % of all flow applications, differential pressure is still the first choice for metering liquids, gas or steam. Almost 25 % of all liquid level measurement applications are hydrostatic pressure measurements – in case of pressurized vessels almost exclusively differential pressure level measurements. With the release of the OPTIBAR series, KROHNE is extending its range of process instrumentation to include pressure measurement. The OPTIBAR...

Differential pressure flow measurement Differential pressure flow measurement The measuring principle For over 100 years, the process industry has used the Differential Pressure (DP) flow measurement method to determine the volume or mass of liquids, gases and steam in commercial use. With DP, pressure is measured at two points across a restriction in the line – for example, a primary element. Using the Bernoulli equation, the difference in pressure between these two points indicates flow velocity and, because the pipe size is known, a volume flow rate can be calculated. Today, DP is being...
