The CoriolisMaster range of flowmeters

Requiring zero upstream and downstream pipe lengths, CoriolisMaster flowmeters are highly suited to installations with limited space

ABB to demonstrate latest technologies for water, wastewater and environmental monitoring applications at WWEM 2014.

ABB Limited (stands 135 and 136) will be showcasing its latest instrumentation and analytical equipment and systems at Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) 2014 on the 5th and 6th November at The International Centre, Telford.

Visitors to the stand will be able to see a fully automated interactive display demonstrating how ABB's technologies can be integrated to help monitor and control water supplies. It features various examples of ABB's instrumentation portfolio controlled by ABB's latest PLC technology with Profibus and Ethernet communications technology.

Amongst the wide range of instruments and analysers on show will be ABB’s AquaMaster 3 flowmeter, featuring WITS technology. Standing for Water Industry Telemetry Standard, WITS is a standardised communication protocol that enables certified instruments in the water industry to communicate over a standard communications infrastructure. Although WITS has been implemented in data loggers, pressure loggers and intelligent RTUs, the AquaMaster 3 is the first electromagnetic flowmeter to feature integrated WITS protocol support.

The inclusion of WITS technology within the AquaMaster will open up new possibilities for operation and maintenance. These include the ability to pinpoint potential problems before they escalate, providing operators with the ability to deploy maintenance personnel only where and when necessary, improving asset performance and cutting the cost of ownership.

The benefits of the AquaMaster 3 with WITS will also be covered in a workshop session presented by Dr Ray Keech of ABB. Taking place from 10:00 to 10:30 on Thursday 6th November in room 4, the workshop will be entitled An integrated flow and pressure metering solution with GPRS WITS protocol. It will explain the benefits arising from incorporating WITS technology into an integrated metering solution, including high speed communications, high resolution logger retrieval and the delivery of near real time data to a WITS SCADA Master.

Also on show will be ABB’s CoriolisMaster range of flowmeters, including the compact FCB330 and 350 models. Requiring zero upstream and downstream pipe lengths, CoriolisMaster flowmeters are highly suited to installations with limited space, opening up a range of new measurement possibilities for applications including measurement of industrial wastewater flows. Their low pressure drop and wide measurement span also makes them a cost effective alternative compared to similar devices from other manufacturers.

The stand will also provide the stage for ABB to announce its agreement to supply Katronic’s range of KATflow ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeters. Established in the UK in 1996, Katronic has developed a reputation for its high quality clamp-on flowmeters and market-leading customer service.

Featuring an intuitive menu, instrument setup wizard and the innovative Audible Sensor Positioning Assistant, the KATflow range makes the use of clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters easier than ever before.

These products will be joined by ABB’s range of pressure and temperature measurement products for use around water and wastewater treatment processes, plus examples of ABB’s level measurement products, including ultrasonic and magnetic level gauge technologies for use throughout potable and wastewater treatment processes.

ABB manufactures and supplies a wide range of equipment for controlling, measuring and monitoring water and wastewater treatment processes, for both utilities and industrial applications. These products are backed up by ABB’s service team, which provides a range of support options including verification and on-site support contracts.
