Endress+HauserEndress+Hauser has announced the Cubemass Coriolis flowmeter, a small, lightweight, compact flowmeter that is ideal for installation in spraying or coating equipment, engine test stands and process skids. Cubemass measures mass flow, volumetric flow, temperature and density in a single unit, and communicates to controllers via pulse, frequency, 4-20mA current with HART, and Modbus RS485.

The Cubemass is available in four pipe sizes, from 1/24” to ¼” (DIN 1 to DIN 6) to measure flow from a few drops to 2,200 lbs/hour (1,000 kg/hour), with mass flow accuracy of +/- 0.10% of reading, and repeatability of 0.05% for liquids. It also measures density in liquids with accuracy up to +/- 0.001 g/cc with repeatability of 0.0005 g/cc. The flowmeter can handle a wide variety of liquids, such as additives, corrosion inhibitors, fuels, coolants, surface lacquers and perfume. Cubemass can withstand process pressures up to 5800 psi (400 bar) and temperatures up to 392°F (200°C).

Suitable for use in hazardous environments worldwide, the Cubemass has ATEX, IECEx, NEPSI, NEC/CEC and TIIS approvals. Its 904L stainless steel measuring tube allows it to be used in some food applications, such as ingredient injection.

Two models are available: the standard Cubemass, which is suitable for all applications, and the Cubemass DCI, which has a local display and controls, allowing users to read and operate the flowmeter locally. The display on the DCI model can be mounted on the flowmeter or on a panel.

Both flowmeters are easy to install, with VCO couplings and adapter sets that accommodate most process connections, and they can be mounted in any orientation for convenience, according to Endress+Hauser.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
