ABB unveils high accuracy flowmeter calibration facility in Minden, Germany

ABB has inaugurated a process flowmeter calibration facility in its Minden factory in Germany. The new calibration hall, which houses water and air calibration rigs, will strengthen the company’s calibration capabilities and provide customers with high levels of quality and accuracy in process flowmeters.

The new capabilities will enable plant operators across industries such as chemical, oil & gas, battery, hydrogen and power, to accurately measure in and outflow as well as raw and produced materials, thus controlling their processes in a more precise and efficient way. The new facility will also significantly reduce time to market and streamline production.

“This is an important milestone for us. We are trusted by our customers to make some of the toughest measurement challenges easy,” said Jacques Mulbert, Division President, ABB Measurement & Analytics. “The new calibration hall is a great example of how we streamline our manufacturing capabilities to deliver the best products at the best price to our customers.”

The new hall houses two water calibration rigs for various process flowmeters, such as Coriolis, Swirl and Vortex flowmeters with a calibration accuracy of less than 0.1 percent. It also includes a density calibration rig for Coriolis flowmeters and air calibration rigs for the thermal mass flowmeter series. In the 1200 m² hall, 375 m² are available for air calibration and 525 m² for water calibration.

The new capabilities will allow the Minden factory to increase its capacity by up to 30 percent, while increasing accuracy and enabling ABB to serve its global customer base even better and reducing lead times.

In 2022, ABB opened a new production hall for traction converters and energy storage systems for the railway industry at the Minden site.
