$3m flow service centre for Abu Dhabi
First in-region VSL-certified calibration facility
Emerson Process Management has opened its new $3million Middle East Flow Service Centre in Abu Dhabi.
This new center serves customers in the Middle East and Africa with the first, in-region VSL calibration and measurement capability (CMC) certified calibration facility.
“The opening represents Emerson’s continued commitment to the region, while delivering much needed local and certified services,” said Dave Tredinnick, Emerson’s president of Middle East & Africa business.
“Never before has an internationally-certified calibration facility been available to customers locally to eliminate lead time issues and reduce costs for flowmeter calibration. Emerson is proud to make these services available to customers in Abu Dhabi, the Middle East and Africa.”
Previously, MENA customers faced limited options and high operational hurdles to validate flow-device calibrations or provide required third-party documentation associated with ISO9000 quality or regulatory requirements.
The result was often process shutdowns and delays while flowmeters were physically removed from operation and shipped overseas for calibration, service or performance diagnostics.
The new local service means minimal process downtime and substantially reduced costs, coupled with the quality assurance that calibrations are done with an internationally-certified standard.
In addition to flowmeter calibration, the centre offers flowmeter diagnostics and evaluations, witness inspection services and documentation to establish the quality of calibration and testing, meter repair and factory-designed training programmes on-site or at the customer’s facility.
