Endress+Hauser has won the Swiss Technology Award, Innovations Leaders category, for its Promass Q flowmeter.

The Coriolis-based flowmeter, developed with applications in the oil & gas and food & beverage industries in mind, was cited by the Swiss Technology Award panellists for its accuracy in difficult conditions. The prize was awarded during the Swiss Innovation Forum.

Endress+Hauser was one on nine finalists out of a total 60 applicants who were selected to present their product or technological innovation to the main jury. The winners were chosen and recognised in front of more than 1,000 guests from business, science and government during the Swiss Innovation Forum in Basel, Switzerland.

"With the Promass Q, we managed to combine state-of-the-art technology, innovative design and superior quality in a single instrument. We are proud that our efforts have been recognised with the Swiss Technology Award," said Martin Anklin, who is responsible for the development of Coriolis instruments at Endress+Hauser Flowtec in Reinach, the Group's centre of competence for flow measurement technology.

 

Demanding applications

Endress+Hauser designed the Promass Q to be able to measure mass flow, volume flow and density under fluctuating process conditions. According to the company, many other measuring devices require an ideal environment with stable process conditions and single-phase, homogenous media.

The Promass Q also features Endress+Hauser’s multi-frequency technology, which allows active compensation for measurement errors caused by entrained gas trapped in the medium, all in real-time. The flowmeter also includes integrated diagnostics and Heartbeat technology, enabling verification of the sensors, measurement tubes and measurement electronics while the process is running.

 

The Swiss Technology Award has been awarded by organisers of the Swiss Economic Forum since 2007. It aims to identify technology innovations and developments that make an important contribution to industry and society.
