Product Portfolio
  • Flow

  • Move into the lead

    KROHNE has unique expertise when it comes to flow measurement. And we don’t just demonstrate our ability with standard applications but also with applications that are demanding, requiring custom solutions. For us, customer orientation starts as early as research and development.
      • Magnetic Resonance Flowmeters

      • Magnetic resonance multiphase flowmeter for the simultaneous measurement of oil, gas and water
         
        • Single measurement principle, no radioactive source
        • Fully automated inline fluid characterisation
        • Large dynamic range up to 1:60, full bore design
        • Enhanced reservoir management

        With the introduction of the M-PHASE 5000, KROHNE brings cutting-edge science to flowmeter design which delivers tangible economic advantage to our oil and gas customers.

        Magnetic resonance makes use of a fundamental property of atoms and in effect makes it possible to “count” hydrogen atoms. Since oil, gas and water all contain hydrogen atoms, multiphase flow can be measured using magnetic resonance. For this purpose the fluids are magnetised and subsequently excited by radio frequency pulses. The hydrogen atoms respond to the pulses and send back echoes which are recorded. The amplitude of the echoes and the rate at which they decay is used to calculate the flow rates. The difference in magnetic resonance properties allows making a distinction between the flowrates of oil, gas and water.

                    • Solutions for the paper industry

                      It is doubtful that Ts'ai Lun, the Chinese man commonly credited with the discovery of paper, ever imagined that an entire industry would be the result of his discovery. The way he made paper was completely unheard of at the time: he mixed together fishing nets, old rags and tree bark, boiled it into a fibrous pulp, skimmed the pulp with a sieve and as soon as it was dry he pressed it and smoothed it out.

                    • KROHNE Marine is proud to announce that we get to take part in the Maersk Line PtP program.​

                      Fuel economy is a key factor for all transportation, and there is no exception in the marine business.

                      Maersk Line has taken a leading role on the subject in the maritime world. Fuel expenses are typically the main cost in running a vessel. Maersk Line focuses strongly on the above, by planning for high quality measurements to ensure accurate fuel balance calculations. This way they seek truth about their fuel expenses from purchase to propeller (PtP).
                    • Minerals & Mining

                    • Solutions for the Minerals and Mining Industry

                      There is hardly any industry where industrial measurement technology proves it is worth its name as much as in the mining, minerals processing and building materials industry. Performing under the harshest operating conditions, any kind of measurement (flow, level, temperature, pressure) must be reliable and reproducible. One of the first applications was the use of electromagnetic flowmeters on dredgers for measuring the flow of abrasive slurries. KROHNE has since developed the devices continuously so they are now available in sizes up to DN 3000 and with a ceramic liner for the measurement of all kinds of slurries with high solid content. We also offer complementary instrumentation e.g. for fresh air or fresh water supply in mines. KROHNE provides instrumentation solutions from “pit to port”. Reliable instrumentation impacts on production costs, throughput and efficiencies for mining and minerals processing customers, these customers see value and invest in KROHNE technology that is engineered to meet their requirements.
