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.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
