Endress+Hauser receives German Innovation Award
Endress+Hauser has received the German Innovation Award for two of its product ranges. The company received the Gold Award for the Promass Q and also impressed the jury with the Proline 300/500 device family, which was recognised with the Winner Award in the connectivity category.
This year was the first time that the German Innovation Award recognised products that set themselves apart from currently available solutions through their added value.
“With the innovative Promass Q flowmeter, Endress+Hauser has set a new standard for the precision measurement of quantity, density and temperature of a flowing fluid. After all, precise measurements increase product quality, reduce the reject rate and cut costs,” said Andrej Kupetz, Head of the German Design Council and Chairman of the German Innovation Award jury.
The Promass Q Coriolis flowmeter is designed especially for the oil and gas as well as the food and beverage industries. With this flowmeter, Endress+Hauser claims to guarantee unrivalled accuracy when measuring mass flow, volume flow and density, even in operating environments and process conditions that fluctuate heavily. Endress+Hauser has also developed a new function that enables the Promass Q to precisely measure fluids with entrained gases.
The competition resulted in a second award for the measurement technology specialist, with the Proline 300/500 family of instruments recognised with the Winner Award in the connectivity category.
Equipped with numerous functions and features, the Proline 300/500 instruments can perform universal flow measurements in all applications of the process industry. These instruments measure the flow in pipes with high accuracy while providing operators with a wealth of important diagnostic and process data. Due to optimised connectivity, intelligent self-monitoring with Heartbeat Technology and a cloud-based app, users can exactly identify the maintenance requirements to optimise maintenance planning and minimise plant shutdowns.
The German Innovation Award is divided into two classes of competition — Excellence in Business to Consumer and Excellence in Business to Business — plus the overall category of Design Thinking. The jury selects a Gold Award for top performance within an industry or particular field in each of the two classes of competition, and in addition several innovations are recognised with the Winner Award. The awards criteria include the degree of innovation, user benefits and cost-effectiveness. The jury comprises independent interdisciplinary experts from industry, science, institutes and the finance industry.
