Liquid Ultrasonic Flowmeter
Emerson Daniel 3812 Liquid Ultrasonic Flow Meter: A high-precision liquid ultrasonic flowmeter applied in the petrochemical industry.
Designed for reliable measurement, minimal maintenance, and ease of operation, the Emerson Daniel 3812 Liquid Ultrasonic Flow Meter with a high accuracy and repeatability is a cost-effective metering solution for many applications in the petrochemical, oil, water, and wastewater industries.
- Full bore meter with no incremental pressure drop increases energy savings
- No moving parts reduces maintenance costs
- Field replaceable transducers simplify maintenance
- Stability of measurement
- Wide flow range
- Bi-directional flow capabilities
- Integrated diagnostics package provides an intuitive view of meter health
- Ease of installation and operation reduces start-up time and lowers capital costs
- WirelessHART support
- Offers all the advantages of transit time and inline ultrasonic flowmeters. Ultrasonic flow measurement is independent of conductivity, temperature, density, and pressure.
- Uses two mid-radius, parallel-plane measurement paths to reduce the influence of the flow profile.
Typical applications include: process measurement, sewage flow measurement, loading and offloading trucks, and ship metering.

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.
