Emerson flowmeters certified for power piping standards

August 2015 Flow Measurement & Control

Emerson Process Management’s Micro Motion Coriolis and Rosemount 8800 vortex flow-meters have been certified to the ASME B31.1 power piping design standards, in addition to the existing B31.3 process piping standard.

“We are committed to serving the power industry and are excited to announce compliance to B31.1 power piping design standards,” said Andy Dudiak, president of Micro Motion at Emerson Process Management. “Micro Motion Coriolis and Rosemount vortex meters bring accurate, reliable measurement to a wide range of applications, helping electricity generators gain better insight into their processes for improved operations.”

B31.1 power piping design standard certification applies to all areas of the power plant except for boiler external piping (BEP), and is a basic design requirement for products sold into the power industry. B31.1 code stamp certification applies to the BEP area of the plant.

Compliance with B31.1 power piping design standard is offered on several of the Micro Motion Coriolis Meters – including Elite, F-series and R-series meters.

Rosemount 8800 vortex products that meet B31.1 design standards and code stamp certification include all carbon steel flanged, reducer and dual vortex meters with flange ratings up to and including ASME Class 1500 (PN 160) on 1-inch (DN25) through 8-inch (DN200) meter body sizes and ASME Class 600 (PN100) on 10-inch (DN250) and 12-inch (DN300) meter body sizes.
