Accuracy of Measure
Krohne is a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation. From flow to level measurement, through pressure, temperature, and gas and steam, they cover a widespread range of areas, with more than 400 engineers continuously researching and investigating innovative and promising technologies that add both to their already complete portfolio and their costumers' industries.
Calibration is one of Krohne's core areas of expertise. If you buy a Krohne product, you will get a measuring device that performs most accurate with low uncertainty under real process conditions. To achieve this, more than 120 calibration facilities are operated for volume flow, mass flow, level, temperature, density and pressure to (wet-) calibrate any device manufactured by Krohne. For example, every flowmeter is wet-calibrated using water or air as standard before leaving the facilities, and Krohne can also provide customer specific calibration, such as carrying out multipoint calibrations, varying different parameters such as temperatures, viscosities, pressures, etc..
Krohne has unique expertise when it comes to flow measurement, demonstrated not just by their ability with standard applications but also with applications that are demanding, requiring custom solutions. Today, users around the world benefit from Krohne innovations: electromagnetic flowmeters with ceramic liners for highly corrosive media in chlorine chemistry; mass flowmeters with just one straight tube – ideal for highly viscous media and low flow speeds; vortex measuring devices with integrated pressure and temperature compensation, and variable area flowmeters.
Krohne has unique expertise in the field of level measurement technology. Krohne's devices are characterized by their high accuracy and reliability, even in difficult applications. A complete series of level switches for liquids and solids and mechanical level meters round out the Krohne level portfolio. Even for challenging applications, Krohne offers corresponding customer-specific solutions.
Krohne industrial temperature assemblies meet all the requirements of the process industry: whether designed as Pt 100 resistance thermometers (RTD) or thermocouples (TC), they withstand high temperatures, extreme pressures and high flow velocities in both standard and demanding applications with harsh environmental conditions. Krohne supplies temperature sensors for all industries and applications, even for hazardous areas and safety applications (SIL). Krohne Inor, a full subsidiary of Krohne based in Malmö, Sweden, has been developing and producing temperature assemblies for industrial applications for over 75 years.
Krohne has been known for outstanding quality and reliability of process measurement instrumentation for many decades. They are now extending its range of process instrumentation to include pressure measurement with the launch of the OPTIBAR range of pressure transmitters. These high performance pressure transmitters are tailored to a wide variety of industrial process applications.
KROHNE supplements the measurement of the physical parameters, from chemical, power, municipality and industrial wastewater applications as well as water treatment processes or inline analysis in hygienic applications, with a wide range of analytical devices and systems. Krohne will gladly assist the clients, should it be necessary to specifically design a measuring system according to the costumer's requirements.
Gas & Steam Measurement
Gas or steam is used in many process industries. When experiencing shortages of resources and rising energy prices it is more important to look at cost-effective, optimal usage. This is only possible with more accurate measurement of product volume. Only with pressure and temperature compensation can a true measurement be made which will lead to effective savings. To achieve increased efficiency in a plant, additional parameters such as measurement errors, leakage, pressure loss and maintenance should be taken into consideration.
Khrone's portfolio has been continuously expanded with complete measuring solutions and additional services to be seamlessly integrated in modern process control concepts, giving the customer as much information about the process as possible.
