FSM4000 - The flowmeter of choice for critical applications.
The FSM4000 is a robust flowmeter for heavy duty applications. It masters critical applications and conserves valuable resources with highly accurate measurement of process parameters for numerous industries.
Sold with a wide range of industry specific liners, electrodes and sizes to meet the needs. The powerful transmitter is easy to use and provides a most stable signal output. It´s measurement performance is unsurpassed in applications with high contents of solids, high content of pulp stock, pulsating flows or other noise.
The Benefits of AC Field Technology
By harnessing the power of AC field technology, the FSM4000 operates with a field frequency that is around ten times higher than what is offered by an electromagnetic flowmeter using pulsed DC field technology. Together with this high field frequency, special digital filters ensure that the FSM4000 is only affected by process noise within an extremely small range.
Using the above example of a noise spectrum for a solid-loaded liquid, the figure shows the extremely small range in which the FSM4000 can be affected by process noise. The highest proportion of process noise occurs in the low-frequency range, which reaches up to approximately 15 Hz. Electromagnetic flowmeters based on pulsed DC field technology operate within this frequency range, meaning that the FSM4000 is ideally suited to flow measurement for solid-loaded liquids and ensures an output signal without any interference
The FSM4000 is a real all-rounder. It is the perfect choice for flow measurement in both basic and highly demanding applications, in a whole range of industries – whether your measurements involve solid-loaded liquids, low conductivity fluids, pulsating flows, or other inhomogeneous materials.
Your Paper and Pulp-Processing applications easily mastered
The FSM4000 is the premier choice for basic and highly demanding applications alike, measuring not only pulp stock concentrations of up to 15 % (oven-dry), but also high levels of impurities (such as shards of glass and plastic particles) found when measuring reject materials and in closed water cycles. By providing an undammed, noise-free output signal at the heat box, the FSM4000 ensures that basis weight control systems keep on running without encountering any problems. Perfect for the following applications:
Your Mining applications easily mastered
Flow measurement in mining industry could be challenging. Slurries, chuncks of rocks and gravel result in noisy flowsignals and are most abrasive. Corrosive liquids require chemical compatibility of the wetted parts within the flowmeter sensor. FSM4000's digital signal processing combined with most modern filtering technology result in a most stable flow signal. Industry specific lining and electrode materials, ensure longest service life of the FSM4000. Perfect for the following applications:
Your water management applications easily mastered

Factory certified pressure tested for leaks.
When choosing a pressure sensor for process control and monitoring in a gas flow system or a distillery component, plant operators are faced with an array of choices.
Modern pressure sensors are equipped to provide accurate measurements under arduous operating conditions, providing outstanding resistances to a range of industry-specific corrosives. Absolute, differential, and temperature-compensated pressure measurements can be acquired for containers and pipelines containing: pharmaceutical solvents; flue gas; heated crude oil; and more.
This vast range of pressure sensors represents an industrial problem of choice. The suitability of many pressure components is likely to intersect with multiple applications and sectors, yet there are unique attributes to consider when choosing a pressure sensor for your own facility.
This article will outline four key things to consider when choosing a pressure sensor.
1. Pressure Sensor Type
The primary consideration for selecting a pressure sensor is the type of component that your application requires. For example, negative pressure values cannot be quantified by a gage transmitter, while temperature-compensated pressure measurements can only be carried out by a multivariable pressure sensor or an array of separate pressure and temperature monitors. Pressure transmitters can typically be broken down into four distinct types:
2. Pressure Sensor Range
The pressure range is a superficially simplistic consideration for choosing a pressure sensor. Operators typically depend upon pre-determined application pressure ranges and select a transmitter that matches those values. However, density changes or abrupt pressure variations can reduce the efficacy of measurement equipment, and in extreme cases can damage the component. In such instances, it is advisable to select a sensor with a higher pressure range and calibrate it accordingly.
3. Atmospheric / Process Conditions of Application
Prior to component selection, it is paramount that you consider the corrosive influences that your pressure sensor could be subjected to during operation. Seals may need to be wetted to withstand solvent corrosion in laboratory applications, while special considerations should be taken to protect a pressure sensor’s internal electronics. Corrosive process media or incident humidity can damage transmitters, reducing measurement accuracy and increasing the risk of premature component failure.
4. Onboarding Times
Installation of new components usually impacts a facility’s throughput due to mechanical downtime during integration and reduced efficacy from onboarding processes. For example, the pressure-sensitive diaphragms of a transmitter must be welded to measurement sites to acquire force values and convert them into electrical signals. Ease of weldability and low wiring footprints are critical for rapid and efficient component integration in applications where extended periods of component inactivity are not an option.
Pressure Sensors from ABB
ABB provides a robust range of sensors for customers all over the world. Our range has provided unique measurement solutions for facilities in the oil and gas, energy, laboratory sectors, and more.
