Yokogawa launches Rotamass TI product portfolio
July 2016, Mass Measurement


Yokogawa has announced the global release in all markets other than Japan of Royamass Total Insight (TI), a new portfolio of four-wire Coriolis mass flowmeters and transmitters. This new Coriolis product platform was developed based on a ‘Total Insight’ concept that seeks to optimise operations and reduce maintenance costs at all phases of the product lifecycle.

Development background

Of the two main types of flowmeters that are in use today – the volume flowmeter and the mass flowmeter – the latter is generally more accurate as its measurements are less susceptible to variations in temperature and pressure. Coriolis mass flowmeters are versatile and highly accurate instruments whose utility extends beyond mass flow, inline density, and temperature measurement. They have evolved into multi-functional devices that can measure concentrations, function as net oil computers (NOC), and even measure heat transport. Its customers expect first-class performance from these instruments in demanding process control applications that involve liquids with high viscosity, entrained gas, and two-phase flows.

Rota Yokogawa, a Yokogawa subsidiary in Germany, has been producing and supplying Rotamass series mass flowmeters to the global market since 1993. The company continues refining these products to add more value and future proof the investments that its customers make. By giving greater insight into the processes, these Coriolis meters help them improve the efficiency and flexibility of operations and reduce maintenance costs at every stage of the product lifecycle.

Product features

Designed based on a unique philosophy that emphasises full product lifecycle support, ease-of-use, and reduced total cost of ownership, the Rotamass TI product portfolio consists of six new sensor product lines and two new transmitters, which can be configured to suit the specific requirements of an application. At the heart of this design is the concept of gaining ‘Total Insight’ into a plant’s operations. The new sensor product lines have each been designed for specific application requirements and process conditions, be it high pressure or high temperature applications, or highly challenging processes involving hygienic or cryogenic conditions. The new general-purpose (Essential) and high-end (Ultimate) transmitters are all supplied with an AC/DC universal power supply and can be flexibly configured to handle a range of functions.

Introduction phase solution – selection tool and expert guide: Yokogawa has developed a new tool that will assist our customers in selecting the optimal sensor and transmitter combination for specific applications. In addition, an online expert guide and a built-in configuration wizard are provided to ensure quick and error-free commissioning.

Operational phase solution – Process Guard function for event management: Yokogawa has added a Process Guard function that can be used to select event patterns for the issuance of alarms, configure the triggering of data logging based on alarms or manually set points, and specify whether data is to be backed up to a microSD card for use in root cause analysis.

Post-implementation phase solution – facilitating preventive maintenance and advanced flexibility: A Maintenance Manager function that includes Yokogawa’s patented Tube Health Check technology monitors all key sensing elements while the flowmeter is in use, yielding data that can be used to minimise disruptions and thereby reduce maintenance costs. All data can be stored on a microSD card for easy data transfer. A new Feature On Demand (FOD) option is available that allows users to upgrade already installed flowmeters by adding new product functions such as the Tube Health Check and a concentration measurement function.

Andreas Dobratz, the managing director of Rota Yokogawa, offered the following observations about these new products: “Yokogawa’s new Coriolis mass flowmeter portfolio sets a new standard in the industry. Rotamass TI offers improved specifications under real conditions, supporting an increased number of applications. The holistic approach of the ‘Total Insight’ philosophy supports the customer in all stages of the product lifecycle, significantly improving operations and plant maintenance.”

Masatoshi Nakahara, a Yokogawa director and executive vice president who is head of the IA Platform Business Headquarters, commented: “With its Transformation 2017 mid-term business plan, Yokogawa has set forth a number of strategies for its industrial automation business. One of these strategies is to enhance and develop the platform products that are at the core of our solutions. Based on our new ‘Total Insight’ concept, Rotamass TI will generate new value for our customers.”
