Emerson expands its pressure gauge portfolio

July 2018 Pressure Measurement & Control

Emerson has introduced the Rosemount Smart Pressure Gauge to help users gain better visibility of field changes. It utilises industry-proven Rosemount pressure sensor technology to deliver reliable pressure readings. With the flexibility to accommodate changing process conditions, the Smart Pressure Gauge gives up to 150X overpressure protection and provides a safer field environment. By utilising two layers of process isolation, it can help prevent process failures from becoming dangerous by preventing employee contact with process fluid by keeping it safely inside the pipe.

Rosemount pressure sensor technology replaces 100-year-old bourdon tube gauge technology, eliminating weak points common to mechanical gauges. Mechanical gauges are plagued with quality and reliability issues associated with overpressure, vibration, corrosion, extreme temperatures and accidental damage, and can contribute to numerous reliability and safety issues in plant environments. Additionally, mechanical gauges are unable to communicate device status.

With up to a 10-year life, which reduces maintenance costs and time, and increased visibility from a large 11 cm face with status indicator light, the gauge provides easy field visibility and expands Emerson’s gauge portfolio. “Industry response to the Rosemount Wireless Pressure Gauge has been positive, and now with the addition of the Smart Pressure Gauge, our customers have even more options for upgrading their problematic gauges,” said Sven Hendrickson, product manager for pressure gauges.
