Outdated technology, costlier than modern alternatives

New technologies offer greater accuracy, availability and lower maintenance costs in the long run

Outdated technology can compromise both production efficiency and availability. Older measuring technologies leveraging mechanical components are less accurate and require higher levels of maintenance than modern equivalents in order to ensure production. Investing today to replace old mechanical devices will pay dividends in the long run, both in productivity gains and maintenance cost savings.

How we can help

Irrespective of the process or application, the latest generation of Endress+Hauser technologies will enable you to hit your productivity and cost targets, providing accurate measurements, reducing maintenance and downtime during calibration and proof testing. Moreover, our sales and service teams are available worldwide for end to end support, from selecting the appropriate sensors to replace old devices, to designing custom maintenance concepts.

  • Safe in-process cleaning and calibration plus self-diagnostics and effortless proof testing with integrated Heartbeat technology

  • Advanced diagnostics for unplanned shutdown prevention

  • Directly available mobile field data with RFID tags for fast access to asset information

  • Unified platforms in transmitters to support a reliable, focused maintenance approach

  • Best-fit instruments with intrinsic safety & high accuracy providing reliable data and process safety


Measure polymerization viscosity efficiently

Viscosity is a crucial fluid property and a fundamental measurement parameter in polymerization process control. As a variable it can be used to monitor product quality. Older viscosity measuring devices using mechanical components require regular maintenance to ensure filters are kept clear and production running.

Measure polymerization viscosity efficiently
Our expertise in the field

The Endress+Hauser Coriolis Promass I flowmeter offers multiple benefits over older mechanical devices for peak performance at reduced operational costs.

  • No filter required, meaning significant time and cost savings in maintenance with sustained process performance and safety

  • Optimize product quality with a single measuring point. In-line multivariable measurement of flow, density, temperature & viscosity

  • Minimize pressure loss with a straight, single-tube design

Prolong sensor lifetimes

In Olefin, quenching pH measurement of the contaminated quench water at regular intervals can go a long way to helping prevent fouling in the bottom of the tower. Cleaning sensors at least every other day is required, a time and labor-intensive activity which if left undone can result in their needing to be replaced every two weeks.

Prolong sensor lifetimes
Our expertise in the field

The Endress+Hauser Liquiline CDC90 extends the lifetime of your sensor more than thirtyfold.

  • Save time with in-process cleaning and calibration with no electrode removal necessary

  • Spur efficiency with self-diagnostic systems such as sensor conditioning checks

  • Foster safety for people and processes as no handling of contaminated water is needed

Prevent unplanned shutdowns

Use of old, magnetic level gauge devices during olefin fractionation in high-temperature environments can reduce safety and result in unreliable measurements. Moreover, unplanned shutdowns can occur if the temperature gets too high.

Prevent unplanned shutdowns
Our expertise in the field

The Endress+Hauser Levelflex FMP51 guided wave radar ensures controlled, reliable fractionation.

  • Measure levels remotely, continuously & reliably in high-temperature conditions based on the time-of-flight principle

  • Avoid unplanned shutdowns by detecting false trips which create the risk of a stuck device

  • Enhance safety with a second unit connected to the Safety Instrumented System (SIS)
