Flow computer uses liquid measurement system
Emerson's ROC800L flow computer uses Flow-Cal's Liquids measurement system to improve productivity and efficiency in field operations through a secure, binary format to retain data integrity.
Emerson's ROC800L flow computer uses Flow-Cal's liquids CFX file format, which is designed to creates a seamless interface from the field to Flow-Cal’s Enterprise Liquids measurement system. This is designed to improve productivity, reduce cost and increase measurement data security with better insight to field operations.
The version 7 CFX file format allows for the import of liquid data into the Flowcal measurement application which automates the complex process of batch and ticket processing. Data generated from the CFX file includes flow information, CTL and CPL, meter configuration, and analysis. The Flow-Cal CFX file format is a secure, binary format which retains data integrity by ensuring the measurement data cannot be changed or manipulated. Generating the file format within the Emerson flow computer offers an additional level of data security.
The ROC800L covers a wide variety of applications for liquid handling across a full range of liquid hydrocarbons, including crude oil, refined products, special application products, lubricating oils, and light hydrocarbons. The ROC800L leverages the easy-to-use architecture of the ROCseries, offering fill-in-the blank configuration that brings users online faster.

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.
