High flow rate Coriolis flowmeters
Micro Motion unveils its highest capacity Elite series Coriolis flowmeters. Extends sensor capabilities for higher-volume applications.
Emerson Process Management (NYSE: EMR) has unveiled its highest flow rate Micro Motion Elite series Coriolis flowmeter, designed to cover 10 to 12 in. (DN 250-300) line sizes with flow rates over 3,200 tons/hour. This new meter adds to the existing 0.1 to 8 in. (DN 2-200) Elite line size range, which the company characterizes as the industry's broadest Coriolis offering.
Emerson says this new line extension is aimed at manufacturers that are challenged with reducing production costs and optimizing processes in tough applications that demand high and very reliable production rates. Many high flow rate applications demand the best possible accuracy in all conditions, especially when measuring high-value material.
This latest large-size high-capacity meter is suited for pipelines, ship and rail loading and unloading, crude oil custody transfer, mud logging, marine, LNG, gas metering, and refinery blending. Elite Coriolis meters have no moving parts and deliver

Annual 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.
