Rosemount 3144P temperature transmitter with X-well Technology
Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced its X-well Technology with a Rosemount 3144P transmitter in addition to its original WirelessHART X-well Technology to extend this non-intrusive temperature sensing technology to a conventional wired I/O environment.
Users have found X-well to be a useful replacement for difficult thermowell installations, which often have a wired connection already available and can be re-used with the wired version of X-well. The technology works by measuring the pipe surface temperature and ambient temperature, combining this information with an understanding of the thermal conductivity properties of the installation and process piping to produce a process temperature measurement.
The technology provides process temperature measurement 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.
Applications that can benefit from the technology include pipelines, small line sizes, 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, pulp and paper, and other industries.
With X-well Technology, users can also add temperature measurement points without having to shut down a process. X-well Technology instruments can be installed with a standard pipe clamp procedure and ordinary hand tools.
Pairing an X-well Technology pipe clamp sensor with the 3144P transmitter combines the versatile sensing technology with a widely used temperature transmitter. Users can now quickly add temperature measuring points wherever they can provide the greatest benefit and choose between a conventional wired or a WirelessHART connection.
