In many cases, industrial process plants include hundreds or even thousands of measuring devices. Particularly for basic applications, demands for simplicity in commissioning, operation and maintenance have increased significantly in recent years. Proline 10 meets precisely this requirement without compromise, because simplicity is the top priority for this new line of flowmeters from Endress+Hauser.

Proline Promag and Promass flowmeters stand for decades of satisfied customers in various industries. The Promass sensor technology has been proven in almost 40 years of use, with over 1 million devices sold. And Promag sensors have been on the market for almost 50 years, with over 2 million installed devices. In addition to the traditional quality indicators, the expectations for process and product quality of plants and measuring devices are continually increasing. At the same time, users demand minimum maintenance effort with maximum ease of use and low operating costs (OPEX). Proline 10 fulfills these requirements without compromise.

The tried-and-tested transmitter technology has now been evolved with an even stronger focus on simplicity and user-friendliness. This guarantees cost-efficiency and time savings through the complete lifecycle, from procurement to commissioning and on to simple and intuitive operation. This makes it easy for users to keep tabs on their basic applications, even in core processes.

Uncompromisingly simple

Proline 10 gives customers the benefit of time and money savings over the entire product lifecycle. And all this without any limitation on measuring performance, because every device is tested on accredited and traceable calibration rigs (ISO/IEC 17025). Proline 10 is simplicity, safety and reliability in one.

Simplicity starts with the customer being able to select the optimum device for their application quickly without overlooking an important order option. However, simplicity goes even farther. All the transmitter functions share one common goal: making the handling of the device as easy as possible. Both commissioning and operation are time-saving, in the field as well as in the control room. The commissioning wizard enables the device to be configured on-site either using the auto-rotatable and high-contrast LCD touch screen or the SmartBlue app via Bluetooth. The latter approach is particularly useful when devices are installed in difficult-to-access locations.

Even if warning or error messages occur during operation, Proline 10 does not leave the user in the lurch. The integrated device diagnostics categorise errors that occur in accordance with NAMUR NE107, visualise their cause and offer appropriate remedies. This quick and easy process leads the user back to error-free operation.

The ideal device for basic applications in all industries

The various Proline 10 flowmeters cover a wide range of basic applications in all kinds of industries.

The Proline Promag electromagnetic flowmeters are ideally suited to conductive liquids, as well as for volume measurement of water and corrosive liquids (Promag W/H/D 10) or even for chemically aggressive fluids (Promag P 10). The instruments meet the demands of basic applications in the following industries: water and wastewater, food and beverages, mining, minerals and metals, chemicals, power and energy, life sciences and utilities. They are used, for example, for measuring raw water, cooling water, process water or wastewater. Frequent applications include volume measurement, consumption measurement, process monitoring, pump control and dosing measurement.

The Promass K 10 Coriolis flowmeter measures both liquids and gases in utilities with minimal operating costs. The device can be used for filling and dosing tasks, process monitoring, pump control, consumption measurements and much more.

In the chemical industry, Promass K 10 is used to measure liquids such as acids, alkalis, cleaning agents and solvents, oils, alcohols as well as liquid hydrocarbons.

In the food and beverage industry, for example, the device measures the admixture quantity of animal fats (e.g. butter), or carbon dioxide (CO2) during the carbonisation of beverages. Furthermore, Promass K 10 is a reliable device for accurate quantity measurement in distribution networks. In the life sciences industry, it can be used for measurement of purified water for injection purposes (WFI) in skids. And in utilities, users benefit from the efficient and cost-saving mass measurement of liquid and gaseous fuels.

Simply clever – multivariable and usable everywhere

Proline 10 provides optimum product quality and process monitoring thanks to the simultaneous measurement of additional process variables. Beside mass flow, Promass K 10 also measures volume flow, temperature and optionally the density. With its one-of-a-kind Gas Fraction Handler function, Promass K 10 enables reliable and accurate measurements even of inhomogeneous liquids with entrained gas.

Proline Promag 10 is available upon request with conductivity measurement (Promag W/P/H) or temperature measurement (Promag H). Promag W and P can also be ordered with grounding-free measurement, which is based on the ‘floating measurement’ concept. Another highlight is the order option ‘0 x DN full bore’ for Promag W 10. Electromagnetic flowmeters with this additional option can be installed without inlet and outlet runs even in close-knit pipeline networks or directly downstream of fittings. There, they record the flow very accurately independently of the flow profile. Thanks to their design without tube restriction, there is no pressure loss.

Heartbeat Technology – for maximum operational safety

The Heartbeat Technology order option enables permanent self-diagnostics with the highest level of diagnostic coverage as well as a traceable device verification without process interruption. The integrated real-time clock ensures that each verification receives an automatically generated timestamp. Heartbeat Technology reduces risks in a plant and thus increases its reliability and availability.

HistoROM – simply unforgettable

The data storage concept (HistoROM) ensures maximum data security before, during and after service. All device parameters are stored securely on the HistoROM data storage module and are automatically reloaded after maintenance work or easily transferred after a device is replaced. Therefore, installing spare parts is easy, saves time and reduces unnecessary downtimes.

Transmitter for seamless system integration

Promag and Promass sensors can be combined with four different Proline 10 transmitters as a compact version:

  • Version without display: the measuring data can be queried via communication protocols.
  • Version with two status LEDs: operated via Bluetooth with the SmartBlue app.
  • Version with a 2.4″ LCD display: which can be used to read data, while the SmartBlue app is used for configuration and operation.
  • Version featuring a 2.4″ LCD touch screen: that can be operated with common touch gestures and simultaneously by using the SmartBlue app.
     

Proline transmitters make no compromise in terms of performance and accuracy. The digital signal processing begins in the intelligent sensor and is the basis for reliable, exact measurement. This means that the transmitter can simultaneously record multiple measured values and forward them to a process control system. Complete access to all measurement data, including diagnostic data acquired by Heartbeat Technology, is possible at any time – thanks to digital data transmission over HART or Modbus RS485 and over the corresponding signal outputs.
