The Micro Motion ELITE CMFS sensor platform features an optimum level of scalability and standardization. With nine distinct sensor sizes in three compact footprints, from 1 mm to 50 mm in nominal diameter lines sizes (1/12” to 2”), this meter delivers ±0.05% liquid flow mass and volume accuracy, ±0.25% gas accuracy and  ±0.0002 g/cc density accuracy for flow rates of 0.04 lb/min to 1,980 lb/min (1kg/h to 54,000kg/h).

The ELITE CMFS platform features a compact, lightweight, and fully drainable design, optimized for measurement performance in the most critical and demanding applications. The meter offers high rangeability with a turndown ratio up to 30:1, and optimal performance with supreme stability and sensitivity. The robust meter design provides accurate measurements even in challenging fluid conditions such as changing densities, pressures, temperatures, or viscosities. 

The ELITE CMFS platform is designed to serve a wide range of applications including chemical injection, production blending, process gas solutions and batching operations in a variety of industries including chemical, oil and gas, food and beverage, life sciences and pharmaceutical industries along with integrators and skid builders. For corrosive and high pressure applications, the meters are available in Stainless Steel 316L and Nickel Alloy C22 construction and are rated to 6,000 psi (413 bar). For cryogenic and high temperature applications, the meter handles process temperatures from -240°C to 204°C (-400°F to +400°F). 

The ELITE CMFS meters are integrated into processes with a wide range of transmitter options featuring integral or remote mounting options. They also offer a wide range of protocols that include HART, Foundation fieldbus, Profibus PA, Profibus DP, Modbus, or EtherNet/IP. Emerson’s Micro Motion global ISO/IEC17025 network of calibration centers allows for precise meter calibration with measurement uncertainties of ±0.014%.

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.
