SOUTH AFRICA – Endress+Hauser, a global leader in measurement and automation technology for process and laboratory applications, has introduced a new modular flow assembly, enabling measurement of up to six parameters in process and drinking water.
According to the company, the modular Flowfit CYA27 flow assembly provides a flexible basis for the measurement of disinfection parameters such a chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone or bromine and further parameters of liquid analysis that go along such as pH or ORP.
The firm notes that systematic disinfection is an essential step in water treatment that is legally required in many areas, to protect people and systems from illness or damage. Monitoring of these disinfection processes is a must to comply with limit values and avoid wasting of disinfectants, it adds.
The company says that the disinfection sensors installed in the new system need a sample flow as low as 5 litres per hour (1.32 gallons per hour) for a reliable measurement, thus only a minimum amount of water goes to waste.
In addition, Flowfit CY27 features a status indication light that allows for easy identification of the operating status of the measuring point, enabling operators to the status at a glance and are able to directly react to potential errors.
It can also be connected to the alarm relay of the transmitter to indicate the NAMUR status of the measuring point.
In terms of maintenance, the assembly is equipped with the optional cleaning and dosing module.
The dosing pump module is switched via the connected transmitter, for example the Liquiline multi-parameter transmitter with relay card, enabling automated cleaning cycles and acidification of the medium for specific disinfection process conditions and minimizing the workload for operating staff.
New pressure transmitters
Other than the new system, the Endress+Hauser group has stepped up its efforts of being a reliable partner with the launch of the new Cerabar and Deltabar pressure transmitters.
Thanks to their Bluetooth interface, they are easier to operate and more efficient to maintain in safety-critical systems.
This is reflected in its intuitive operation via the SmartBlue app, which includes guided operating sequences for parameterisation and commissioning of the pressure sensor.
The employee/ personnel do not have to open the housing or connect a cable. Real-time data from the pressure transmitter is available at any time.
The high level of safety combined with enhanced productivity follows the Endress+Hauser smart safety approach to increase plant availability.
Further to that, the Heartbeat Technology creates the basis for predictive maintenance and allows the devices’ functionality to be verified without process interruption.
The basis for this is the continuous self-diagnostic function of the pressure transmitters. It achieves a diagnostic coverage rate of over 95 percent.
With this information, it is possible to plan system revisions and maintenance work for measuring devices in advance and reduce downtimes.
“Our new pressure measurement technology features self-explanatory and efficient operating concepts that prevent systematic errors during device parameterization. They maintain the high safety level of the system and at the same time reduce maintenance costs – during commissioning as well as repair,” indicated the company.
