KROHNE, Inc. will showcase a wide range of its industry-leading water and wastewater products, including the new SMARTSENS line of analytical sensors at WEFTEC 2014, Booth 4651. The 87th Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference will be held September 29th – October 1st at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. Visitors to the KROHNE booth will have the opportunity to enter into a Wounded Warrior donation raffle during exhibit hours to support the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).

SMARTSENS is the first family of 2-wire loop powered analytical sensors with integrated transmitter technology. SMARTSENS offers direct connection of sensors to process control systems. The sensors can be configured via a HART Handheld and calibrated offline via PACTware.

SMARTSENS sensors significantly reduce the risk of failures along the chain from sensor to process control system. Offered for pH, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) and conductivity, SMARTSENS sensors can be connected directly to the process control system, featuring direct communication via 4…20 mA/HART. This reduces common issues related to improper transmitter installation, cabling, or configuration. KROHNE is the first provider to offer a direct connection from sensor to the process control system via a standardized signal.

All SMARTSENS sensors are digital and can be calibrated or recalibrated offline in a laboratory under controlled conditions. For offline calibration, the sensor can be connected directly to a PC running the same FDT/DTM frame applications (i.e. PACTware) as applied in common asset management systems, using an USB interface cable for bi-directional HART 7 communication and power supply. This is a significant improvement over other analog analytical sensors that have to be calibrated on site together with the transmitter, even if installed at remote or difficult-to-reach measuring points, which can also cause sensor calibration to trigger false values in the process control system.

Also featured will be KROHNE’s newly designed flow meter for partially filled pipes, the TIDALFLUX 2300.The meter can measure flows in pipes between 10 and 100 percent full and its non-contact sensor is not affected by oils and fats floating on the surface. In addition, TIDALFLUX has a broad diameter range to fit pipes up to DN1600 or 64 inches, and has high chemical and abrasion resistance to provide exceptional durability.

KROHNE’s full product line for use in the water and wastewater industry will also be featured at the booth, including the OPTIFLEX 2200 and OPTIWAVE 5200 level meters, and the ENVIROMAG, WATERFLUX, OPTISOUND VU30, and the unique OPTISONIC 6300 P portable clamp-on flow meters. KROHNE representatives will be available at the booth to discuss products and applications.
