Advanced Coriolis flow and density measurement technologies earn company accolades.

PALO ALTO, CA, Dec. 4, 2006 -- Frost & Sullivan selected Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson, as the recipient of a 2006 Technology Leadership Award for the company's introduction and continuing development of Micro Motion Coriolis advanced flow and density measurement technology.

Coriolis technology, ideal for a great number of gas and liquid applications, offers high accuracy measurement for a range of operating environments. While other measurement technologies may require additional pressure and temperature devices, a single Coriolis meter measures mass and density directly for improved efficiency and reliability in the process.

"Emerson's Micro Motion division has made extensive contributions in Coriolis technology development and has been awarded over 150 U.S. patents that cover a wide range of product, technology and applications for their technology," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Miriam Nagel.

Since introducing the first practical Coriolis metering devices in 1977, Emerson has further developed the technology and installed over 500,000 Micro Motion Coriolis devices in a vast array of applications around the world, establishing itself as the leader in this area.

Due to its accuracy and ability to measure flow and density with a single device, the impact of Coriolis technology is also great across diverse sectors where measurement accuracy is critical, such as the custody transfer of LNG, and compressed natural gas (CNG), as well as in other oil and gas industries.

"Significantly, Coriolis flow measurement technology is also being used for ethanol production and quality control due to the ability to measure alcohol concentration and flow with a single device," added Nagel. "In recognition of the company's pioneering efforts and long-standing leadership in the development of Coriolis measurement technology, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award for Technology Leadership to Emerson Process Management."

"We are honored to be recognized for Coriolis technology that has improved accuracy and performance of applications for customers around the world," said John Berra, president of Emerson Process Management. "It is gratifying that our pioneering of this technology in the 70's and the development that we continue today is expanding the use of this innovative measurement approach."

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to a company that has pioneered the development and introduction of an innovative technology; a technology that has either impacted or has the potential to impact several market sectors. The company's technology is expected to bring significant contributions to the market in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
