Process Instrumentation and Sensors Award Winners


FlowmetersMicro Motion 2200S two-wire transmitter

Emerson Process Management, Micro Motion Division

Emerson's Micro Motion 2-wire Coriolis meter with MVD technology extends highly accurate mass flow and density measurement to loop-powered applications, eliminating the need for additional power wiring. Bringing the same high-quality features of Micro Motion Coriolis, the new two-wire meter delivers +0.10% liquid flow and +0.0005 g/cm3 liquid density accuracy in continuous process and mass balance applications. It has no moving parts and requires no maintenance. Suitable for integral or extended mount, the innovative loop powered design makes for seamless integration into existing control systems. The 2200S delivers multivariable and diagnostic information via HART communications.


ST51 Flowmeter - Fluid Components International

ST51 Mass Flow Meter from FCI provides highly accurate and reliable gas flow measurement in green energy applications in the emerging methane-to-markets processes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and use biogas in the co-generation of electric power.

Process Sensors Fluke Ti25 Thermal mager

Fluke Corp.

The Fluke Ti25 enables engineers to see the heat signature of electrical and mechanical equipment to scan and identify potential problems quickly from a safe distance. Its IR Fusion patent-pending technology integrates infrared and visual (visible light) images in full screen or picture-in-picture views for enhanced problem detection and analysis. The Ti25 and Ti10 models are designed to make the use of thermal imaging affordable and effective for day-to-day troubleshooting. The Ti25 includes the ability to record and save voice comments with every image taken, and on-screen emissivity correction. Both models are tested to withstand a drop of 6.5 ft. (2 meters), and are IP54 rated to withstand water and dust.

Saveris - Testo Inc.

Saveris is the wireless temperature and humidity monitoring system for indoor environment and production process monitoring that is simple, accurate, secure, and flexible.

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.
