Micro Motion's new software tool helps determine best lifecycle value when purchasing flow equipment. Advisor software—developed in cooperation with instrumentation experts and companies such as Dow Chemical (Midland, Mich.)—allows users to compare different flow technologies using their data and parameters, within broad categories such as installed, maintenance, and calibration costs. The user is then presented with long-term costs of different application-appropriate technologies. Micro Motion aims to move Coriolis flowmeter technology from niche markets into broad use for gas measurement. Key reasons for using Coriolis flowmeters gas measurement, according to Tom O' Banion, Micro Motion's industry marketing specialist for gas measurements, are improved sensor technology, absence of moving parts, ability to adapt to condition changes, and a low corrosion factor.
