In any type of system design and construction, and even in replacing parts and components, engineers and contractors tend to have their preferred brands and options in everything from flow meters to pressure transmitters.
In reality, most equipment designed for processing systems in any industry can be an effective choice in a similar type of application. However, this does not always mean it is the best choice. Taking the time to compare any system component to the specific application is essential in selecting the right model.
When it comes to many applications, a Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter is a good choice. This is a proven pressure transmitter that is used in systems around the world and continues to operate in very challenging applications and process requirements. In fact, the company reports there are over seven million of these transmitters in use today, with many working for years without any issues or problems.
The Built-In Features
One of the reasons designers, engineers and contractors like working with the Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter it that it is meant to be easy to install. The pressure transmitter arrives ready to install, which includes full leak testing under pressure, calibrated to the specific information for the process as well as setup for easy commissioning in the facility.
Each of the models of the Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter is also equipped with self-diagnostic systems. This ensures several tests are completed at the time of installation as well as throughout the life cycle of the device. This includes testing to check for corrosion on the terminals, incomplete grounding, and any problems with the power supply. There are also alerts that can be pre-set in the system, allowing for ease of operator control over the process as well as provide information if maintenance on the pressure transmitter is required.
