Yokogawa Electric Corporation and CiDRA Corporate Services have entered into a distributor agreement to sell latter’s SONARtrac® range of flowmeters in the Middle East – Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar, besides the Asian markets
CiDRA’s line of SONARtrac flowmeters provides accurate and reliable flow and entrained air measurements for mining applications, as well as most other industrial applications.
Due to their non-contact design, SONARtrac flowmeters do not have any moving or process-wetted parts that are subject to wear. They also do not have inherent drift mechanisms, and can be installed on the outside of any type of pipeline. This non-contact design translates into long life, no maintenance, improved safety, and enhanced operational and process efficiency for the monitoring of mining flow processes.
Kersi Aspar, Yokogawa vice-president and head of the global sales center at the company’s IA platform business headquarters, said, “Yokogawa has an extensive flowmeter lineup that includes vortex, magnetic, clamp-on ultrasonic, and Coriolis flowmeters.
“Based on our two years’ experience selling SONARtrac in Australia and New Zealand, we believe that its unique sonar-based non-contact flow and entrained air measurement systems nicely complement our flowmeter lineup, and enhance the portfolio of industry leading products and solutions that we provide to the Southeast Asian, Middle East and Korean markets. This will enable us to expand into the mining, chemical, refining, coal processing, power, and other markets.”
John Viega, CiDRA’s vice-president of global sales, added, “We are pleased to build upon our existing relationship with Yokogawa. Yokogawa is recognised for its high quality and innovative technology and solutions, and very much like CiDRA, has a steadfast commitment to customer requirements for safety and operational and process efficiency.”
