In some industries, frequent calibration of flowmeters may not be possible or desirable due to the size of pipelines, restricted access to the instrument or a need to keep the process running. Our certified service technicians can verify instruments inline without interrupting the process and provide documented proof of compliance.
Verification of measuring instruments assesses functional performance by ensuring an instrument’s key internal components are working correctly. This provides a high degree of confidence that it is operating in accordance with its original specifications and properly performing its intended function in the process.
Taking the pulse of your measurement
There are several ways that devices can be checked directly in the pipeline without process interruption. Many Endress+Hauser flowmeters now come equipped with Heartbeat Technology, which enables documented device verification at any time in any application. Everything from the sensor to the output signal is checked to ensure the device is functioning correctly, using the device display, a laptop or a control system. The result is test documentation that can be printed and archived, and which always delivers a clear pass or fail result about the condition of a measuring device.
Alternatively, Endress+Hauser service technicians can clamp an ultrasonic flowmeter to the outside of your pipework to verify your instrument is operating correctly and extend the time period between calibrations. It’s a completely safe, non-invasive technology suitable for a wide range of liquids and satisfies the requirements of traceable testing in accordance with ISO 9001.
Such comprehensive functional assessment of instrument reliability, combined with our proven instrumentation and maintenance expertise, gives you transparency and confidence in your instrument performance. You’ll fulfil all necessary compliance requirements, reduce unplanned downtime and keep your maintenance costs under control.
