Emerson: Heavy Fuel Viscosity Meter for Marine and Power Applications

The Heavy Fuel Viscosity Meter (HFVM) Viscomaster, the next generation of the Micro Motion 7829 Viscomaster direct insertion viscosity and density meter, incorporates a new robust low friction Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating for demanding applications such as marine heavy fuel oil (HFO) combustion control, marine gas oil (MGO) viscosity control and land-based fired heaters.

The head-mounted transmitter is hazardous area approved and has can connect to control systems via a wide range of digital and analog protocols. System integration and startup commissioning costs are reduced due to the support from 4-20 mA, HART, Wireless HART and RS-485 Modbus communications. The unit accepts and processes signals from other field instrumentation such as temperature and mass/volumetric flow devices, enabling the meter to calculate and output enhanced process measurements while minimizing installation and cabling costs. A new diagnostic capability called Known Density Verification (KDV) checks the meter for measurement alarm conditions, sensor integrity and the presence of coating, erosion or corrosion. This technology expands the availability of diagnostic information in critical viscosity and density measurement applications which can result in significant maintenance costs and cycle time reductions. Marine approvals for the meter include Lloyds, Germanischer Lloyd's, Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and Bureau Veritas (BV).
