• Micro Motion offering expands into complete solution for flow, density and viscosity measurement

BOULDER, CO, April 10, 2007 -- Emerson Process Management announces a change in the brand name of the company's densitometers product line from Solartron® to Micro Motion®. Emerson acquired the densitometers product line in 2005 and added it to the Micro Motion offering, giving customers a complete single-source solution for flow, density and viscosity measurement. Emerson's measurement knowledge and expertise are expanded with the leading Micro Motion technology to deliver measurement problem solving and innovative solutions.

"The addition of Solartron products, and tremendous density experience of the team, further broadens our offering to customers and strengthens our expertise," said Tom Moser, president of Emerson Process Management's Micro Motion division. "Emerson can now provide customers with direct access to the world's leading mass flow, density and viscosity technologies."

Micro Motion Coriolis products precisely measure flow and density simultaneously. For applications where a flow measurement is not required or is being performed by a separate instrument, densitometers provide excellent added value through their exceptional density measurement performance. These new additions to the Micro Motion portfolio enhance the solutions provided with highly accurate straight tube densitometers being applied for fiscal density / concentration measurement, gas densitometers for gas density / molecular weight measurement, and fork density / viscosity devices for direct insertion tank measurement. This combination of Micro Motion products provides a complete range of leading technologies for applications where both flow and density or density measurement alone are required.

"While the products themselves will continue to offer superior technology and reliability, Solartron density will now be known as Micro Motion," Moser added. "Whether measuring mass flow, density, concentration or viscosity, customers can now turn to Emerson for the leading measurement solutions, along with the best value, expertise, performance and quality."
