AW-LAKE COMPANY recently completed CRN registration of its TRICOR® Coriolis Mass Flow Meters within five provinces of Canada including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec. Each province requires individual registration and provides a CRN number.
CRN registration certifies that the TRICOR® flow meter product line meets high quality standards in operating safely under different working conditions. Registered under Category F for measuring devices within the pressure vessel code, the pressure-containing components with the TRICOR® flow meter product line are now certified as meeting the ASME B31.3 code for allowable stress, when under pressure, as stated for castings, flanges and tubes.
“CRN registration certifies that our product is designed to meet requirements and safety codes built into ASME codes,” notes Mark Iverson, General Manager of AW-Lake. “If a product does not hold CRN, a user doesn’t know what standards, if any, to which the product is designed. Most facilities operating in Canada that follow some kind of government guideline require equipment to be CRN registered.”
The CRN registration opens the door for TRICOR® Flow Meter use in oil and gas processes, wastewater, nuclear plants, food and beverage processes and other applications within Canada where customers must specify equipment compliant with Canadian B51 standards. For example, government-run facilities within Canada, such as water treatment plant and hydro-electric power plants, can now specify the TRICOR® Coriolis Mass Flow Meters as design requirements meet pressure vessel codes at stated working pressures.
TRICOR® Coriolis Mass Flow Meters serves as the workhorse of process operations, performing multiple measurements simultaneously with customisable process parameters and multiple communication languages. The all-in-one instruments provide for direct measurement of mass flow, density and temperature, with calculated measurement of volumetric flow. Mechanically balanced tubes and superior mechanical design provide for best-in-class density measurement.
