Online PR News – 06-September-2012 – United Kingdom – ABB Limited (stand 308) will be demonstrating its extensive range of products and expertise at the Instrumentation Scotland & Offshore Systems exhibition, including its latest temperature, pressure, data recording and flowmetering technologies.

Specific products on display will include ABB’s 2600T pressure transmitter family, featuring ABB’s common standardised HMI platform. Enabling operators to easily scroll through and select options, the HMI simplifies operation, maintenance and training, reducing cost of ownership and providing a consistent user experience.

Other key features include an easily replaceable electronics module, enabling transmitters to be quickly and safely upgraded in the field and a standard safety pressure transmitter variant, approved to IEC61508 and TUV Nord for use in SIL2 applications. Gauge pressure transmitters with a maximum working pressure of 1050 bar and differential pressure transmitters with a maximum static pressure of 600 bar are available for high pressure applications, such as wellhead control.

The 2600T series also has the optional extra of ABB’s Plugged Impulse Line Detection system (PILD). Incorporated within the transmitter itself, the system compares the application background noise against a pre-programmed baseline to detect blocked impulse lines, with any blockages being relayed as an alarm via HART, Profibus or Foundation Fieldbus.

Also on show will be examples of ABB’s ProcessMaster flowmeter. With a choice of liner, sensor electrode and high pressure options, plus other features including a host of diagnostic capabilities, the ProcessMaster is ideal for oil and gas applications demanding enhanced performance with reduced complexity.

These products will be accompanied by ABB’s surface mount temperature assemblies for demanding applications, plus the SM500F field mountable data recorder, an electronic data recorder that can be installed anywhere with a choice of pipe, panel and wall mounting options.

ABB will also be running a workshop on process gas chromatography technologies, entitled ‘Measurement Accuracy of a Micro GC vs traditional process chromatographs’, on Thursday 6th September between 10.30 and 11.30am. Hosted by ABB process analytics specialist, Yuri Tan, the workshop will compare the benefits that can be derived using modern micro process chromatographs against traditional process gas chromatography technologies.
