Endress+Hauser's Dosimag and Dosimass flowmeters with integrated batching functionality are key components of the new machine concept.

  2. Calibration Management Increases Plant Availability
    6/3/2019

    Thanks to the set-up of a result-based calibration contract with Endress+Hauser and to the simplification of the operation, this major biotechnology plant has significantly reduced overall effort and calibration costs. The calibration time has also decreased, with positive impact on the plant process’s availability rate.

  3. External Management Improves Operational Quality And Increases Reference Meters’ Availability
    6/3/2019

    A biotechnology plant was struggling with the management of the calibration of the more than 100 reference standards covered about 20 calibration service providers. Endress+Hauser took the responsibility to manage the whole calibration process of the reference standards resulting in a reduction of non-conformities achieved has led to better operational quality.

  4. Bioprocess Plant Reduces Down Time With Self-Calibrating Temperature Sensor
    6/3/2019

    To keep the risks in bioproduction as low as possible, an increase in calibration frequency is required. Read how the self-calibrating iTHERM TrustSens temperature sensor kept Plant downtime and calibration times to a minimum.
