Everyone wants peak accuracy from their instrumentation, but nobody wants to disrupt their field process to verify it. Purvang Upadhyay, the global water industry manager for measurement and analytics with ABB, shared an attractive alternative to such disruption with the Water Talk moderators at WEFTEC 2019 — in-situ verification. This classic example of digitalization in the water industry enables users to check the health and accuracy of an electromagnetic flow meter against a digital ‘fingerprint’ of that meter’s performance the day it was originally calibrated or installed. The technology currently helps with greenfield installation as well as with asset management to prevent avoidable failures, and it is anticipated to extend to fully automated analysis of other instrumentation in the future.
