New Panel-Mount Flow for Gas & Liquid Metering

Emerson Process Management has introduced the FloBoss S600+ panel-mount flow computer for gas and liquid hydrocarbon metering. Building on the proven performance and reliability of the FloBoss S600, the S600+ can handle up to ten individual streams simultaneously and has an increased port capacity, which helps reduce the complexity and cost of multi-stream fiscal custody transfer metering. The S600+ also features a robust audit trail and enhanced security.

The S600+ can simultaneously handle up to ten meter streams, which can be a mixture of gas and liquid streams, and a combination of flow metering technology. This increase allows greater potential for connecting multi-stream (multiple meter runs) metering applications to a single flow computer and takes advantage of the benefits that a flow computer provides when it meters the whole station rather than just part of it. The use of multi-stream flow computers greatly reduces the complexity, cost and time involved in system integration and testing.

The S600+ also has an increased capacity for serial and Ethernet ports. This not only allows simpler and increased usage of ultrasonic & Coriolis meters but also allows greater communication to chromatographs, printers and metering supervisory systems. The S600+ comes with dedicated interfaces for the majority of the leading ultrasonic & Coriolis meter manufacturers, helping to reduce configuring, commissioning and trouble shooting costs.

With the benefits of Coriolis & ultrasonic meters being increasingly utilized for fiscal and custody transfer metering of hydrocarbons, the S600+ has been designed to further enhance these metering technologies. Support for "dual proving” - two provers managed by a single flow computer - allows the S600+ to improve proving repeatability and reduce the measurement uncertainty of Coriolis & ultrasonic metering.

Security and audit trails have always been a priority for metering engineers and the S600+ has been enhanced to give greater data protection and security as well as additional diagnostics and protection features on the web server. This is particularly important for users who want to make use of the inbuilt web server for remote monitoring, communications and diagnostics. To help to provide an even more robust audit trail, up to 50,000 process alarms and 50,000 events can be stored as well as a full year of monthly, daily & hourly reports.

“The development of the S600+ ensures the FloBoss S600, known as the most powerful and flexible flow computer on the market for both gas & liquid hydrocarbon metering, will continue to satisfy the most demanding Fiscal & Custody transfer metering requirements for many years to come,” said Craig Llewellyn, President, Remote Automation Solutions group, Emerson Process Management. “The backward compatibility and like configuration files, allow the S600+ to produce the same results as its predecessor. This ensures that the operators’ existing investments are always protected.”
