Emerson introduces new oil and gas transmitter

May 2015 Pressure Measurement & Control

Emerson Process Management has launched the Rosemount 4088 MultiVariable transmitter. The device is a new platform for Emerson in upstream and midstream oil and gas applications, providing differential pressure, static pressure, and temperature measurement from a single transmitter. The advanced Rosemount 4088 extended range capability captures flow rate spikes above the upper range limit of the transmitter to account for flow that would have traditionally been missed.

“We designed the Rosemount 4088 to make a real difference in the way our customers operate their wells and manage oil and gas production,” said Scott Nelson, general manager Rosemount Pressure Products at Emerson Process Management. “Achieving a high level of measurement accuracy and output efficiency over the life of a well is a huge undertaking, and the Rosemount 4088 will help companies meet their objectives.”

The transmitter’s extended range capability delivers superior measurement performance for plunger lift measurement applications over the life of oil and gas wells. Its new sensor technology measures flow rate spikes while still achieving excellent performance over the typical operating range. By accurately measuring flow that is commonly missed, this extended range capability guarantees the accurate accounting of oil and gas production, potentially saving companies thousands of dollars a year.

As wells mature and process conditions change, maintaining accurate measurement instrumentation is critical to well stakeholders and leaseholders. The Rosemount 4088 MultiVariable transmitter offers stable performance over the life of the well, ensuring consistent production and minimising service and equipment costs.

It provides a reliable and stable signal transmitted through Modbus, BSAP, or MVS; resulting in excellent data accuracy and more effective management of changing well conditions. The Rosemount 4088 is typically integrated into a larger oil and gas production network by transmitting data to flow computers and RTUs. The device is designed to integrate with Emerson’s flow computer products, such as the ROC, FloBoss, and ControlWave, but it can be used with any new or existing flow computer or RTU network that accepts a Modbus input.
