Emerson Process Management's Rosemount guided wave radar verification service is designed to to help users avoid process disruptions and improve process safety for level instrument performance. Courtesy: Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management has introduced a guided wave radar (GWR) verification service designed to help users verify their Rosemount level instrument performance. Standards, regulations and calibration requirements for GWR instruments used to measure tank level must be adhered to by process plants. Verifying GWR level instrument operation traditionally involves climbing to top of the tank, opening an access port, and taking a reading by hand. In order to get the multiple measurement points often required for accuracy, product has to be transferred in, out, or both—disrupting the process and putting workers in danger in hazardous situations.

With the guided wave radar, technicians can go to the client's location and provide verification without any disturbance to normal operations. A five-point accuracy verification is performed using calibration hardware with traceability to recognized standards. In addition to verifying accuracy and making any required adjustments, the GWR level instrument's condition and configuration are evaluated to ensure optimum performance. Companies can schedule this service during normal operations, or during planned shutdowns or turnarounds. This service is available for Rosemount R Series 3308 and the 5300 GWR level instruments, with more GWR level instruments being covered in the near future.
