Emerson Daniel 3812 Liquid Ultrasonic Flow Meter: A high-precision liquid ultrasonic flowmeter applied in the petrochemical industry. Courtesy: EmersonDesigned 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.

Features include:

  • 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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
