Emerson has introduced a new Micro Motion™ Coriolis flow meter designed for high-pressure hydrogen dispensing and chemical injection applications where measurement accuracy and safety are essential.
The Micro Motion Coriolis HPC015 flow meter is capable of a flow accuracy margin of 0.5% for gas and 0.1% for liquid mass flow measurement. The meter also performs under wide pressure and temperature fluctuations, while its onboard diagnostic tools eliminate the need for pre-inspections or interim maintenance checks.
Tim Drost, Senior Coriolis Product Marketing Manager at Emerson, said, “The HPC015 is an extremely accurate, safe and reliable solution to measure flow at high pressures. It was designed specifically to meet the challenges our customers face in the hydrogen fuel and chemical injection spaces.”
One of the main application uses for the HPC015 is accurately measuring the flow of hydrogen gas to effectively manage costs in large-scale custody transfer applications, such as public transport systems, where hydrogen is used for refuelling.
Another significant market for the meter is in other high-pressure applications such as injecting methanol, corrosion inhibitors and other chemicals downhole at high pressure. The project is designed to accurately and reliably dose chemicals at pressures up to 1,060 bar to ensure pipeline integrity and avoid events like plugging, which can stop production.
