Emerson Rosemount X-well Technology process temperature measurement

Monday, 14 March, 2016 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions

Emerson Process Management has introduced Rosemount X-well Technology, a surface-sensing temperature measurement solution that eliminates the need for thermowell process penetration when measuring process temperatures in pipe applications. The product provides a repeatable internal process temperature measurement while eliminating possible leak points and simplifying specification, installation and maintenance.

The technology is available in the Rosemount 648 Wireless Temperature Transmitter and Rosemount 0085 Pipe Clamp Sensor Assembly. These components work together to calculate process temperature via the transmitter’s thermal conductivity algorithm. It works by measuring the pipe surface temperature and ambient temperature and combining this information with an understanding of the thermal conductivity properties of the installation and process piping.

The technology measures process temperature without requiring any intrusions or penetrations into the process, allowing for quick and easy installation along with simplified long-term maintenance. Users do not have to design, size or maintain thermowells. Wake frequency calculations are eliminated, as well as time spent determining material compatibility, the right insertion length and the necessary profile. Users can also add temperature measurement points without having to shut down a process.

The technology can be installed with a standard pipe clamp procedure and ordinary hand tools and does not require a skilled contractor. Suitable applications include pipelines, high-velocity flows, slurries, heavy particulate fluids, wellheads, clean-in-place processes, high-viscosity fluids and harsh processes in the oil and gas, chemical, refining, food and beverage, metals and mining, and pulp and paper industries.
