Multivariable vortex flowmeter works with liquids and gasses
Optiswirl 4070 from Krohne provides multivariable measurements in a two-wire configuration.
Krohne now offers its new Optiswirl 4070 C flowmeter, a multivariable instrument that combines a vortex flow sensor with built-in temperature compensation and optionally available integrated pressure in a two-wire configuration. The company says this new device is an all-in-one product that delivers accurate measurement of standard volumetric and mass flow of conductive and non-conductive liquids, gases and vapors, even in applications that are prone to pressure and temperature fluctuations.
The 4070 C features a non-wearing, fully welded stainless steel structure that is highly resistant to corrosion, as well as high pressures and temperatures. It is designed for optimum reliability, featuring an intelligent signal processing system (ISP) that allows for stable flow readings while eliminating noise and spurious frequencies in the process.
In addition to its sturdy and dependable vortex sensor structure, the Optiswirl 4070 C includes a built-in temperature transducer and an optional pressure sensor with available isolation valve within its plug-and-play design, Pactware diagnostics and configuration software with DTM included at no extra cost.
This product is suited for a variety of process applications, including oil, gas, and chemical industries. It can handle many uses within such plants, including vapor and saturated steam measurement, steam boiler monitoring, compressor control, or compressed air systems monitoring. The meter can also be used for measurement of industrial gases, burner consumption measurement, and SIP or CIP processes in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.

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.
