Endress+Hauser has surpassed the notable milestone of producing over one million Coriolis flowmeters and 500,000 vortex meters.
In 1977, Endress+Hauser started to produce flowmeters with just three employees in a former military barracks in Reinach, Switzerland. In the mid-1980s, the company expanded its device portfolio by adding vortex meters and Coriolis flow measuring technology, which was relatively unknown at the time. Both measurement methods enable customers to measure liquids and gases with a single device. In addition, vortex meters measure the quantity of steam in utilities.
The process industry has been generating a steady demand for high-quality flowmeters for decades. To supply the increasing number of units required today, the company has production facilities at six locations across the globe: Switzerland, France, the USA, China, India and Brazil. “Each facility features precise calibration systems which are regularly checked by national accreditation bodies. This is how we guarantee that each individual device will deliver consistently high measurement quality,” says Bernd-Josef Schäfer, Managing Director of the Product Center for flow measurement.
Endress+Hauser Flow consistently tailors its portfolio to customer needs. Groundbreaking innovations thus make it possible to measure a wide variety of fluids in pipelines with high accuracy, such as milk, acids, bases, hydrocarbons, crude oil, steam or liquids with entrained gas.
Some product highlights include the unique in-line viscosity measurement (Promass I, 2003), the world’s first 4-tube Coriolis flowmeter for maximum flow rates (Promass X, 2011), the measurement of liquids with entrained gas without an additional device (Promass Q, 2017), recording the smallest flow rates of a few grams per minute with unparalleled precision (Promass A, 2018), determining the steam quality directly in the pipeline (Prowirl F, 2014) and an all-in-one vortex meter with integrated temperature and pressure measurement for comprehensive energy management (Prowirl F/R/O, 2018).
