• Deal expands Rosemount Analytical offering of Sample Water Analysis Systems

ST. LOUIS, MO, May 14, 2009 -- Emerson announced it has acquired the online wet chemistry analyzers product line of Hawthorne, NY based SI Industrial Instruments Inc. (dba Scientific Instruments) for use in the power and water treatment markets. The Scientific Instruments product line becomes part of Emerson Process Management, expanding its Rosemount Analytical solutions with reliable, low maintenance measuring systems used extensively in the power and steam generation industry.

"This acquisition strengthens our offering of solutions for the power market, in particular for Sample Water Analysis Systems," commented Ken Biele, president of the Rosemount Analytical division of Emerson. "In addition, it provides increased capabilities in our drinking and waste water product offering."

The Scientific Instruments product line includes silica, sodium, phosphate and hydrazine monitors that are used world-wide to control and safeguard critical plant processes, providing assurance to operators and management that the processes are operating efficiently. All monitors measure up to 6 streams per analyzer.

This offering complements and expands Rosemount Analytical's offering of world class pH, conductivity and chlorine sensors to the power and water industries. The acquisition includes the industry proven Models CFA180 and recently introduced Model CFA185.

The Model CFA185 utilizes valve pump technology which reduces reagent consumption by 67%, reducing operating costs. In addition the valve pump technology reduces the maintenance that peristaltic pump technology inherently requires.

Emerson Process Management, an Emerson business, is a leader in helping businesses automate their production, processing and distribution in the chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, power, water and wastewater treatment, mining and metals, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and other industries.
