Parker Instrumentation”s CCIMS instrument mounting system features an integrated mounting and manifold block, which enables users to quickly connect instruments directly to process piping with a minimum of joints (five), thus reducing the potential for leaks. The mounting system supports the direct connection of differential-pressure transmitters and provides a practical solution for “close coupling” these instruments. The unit allows pressure transmitters to be mounted directly onto an orifice plate assembly in less than 30 minutes, an improvement over hand-crafted assemblies of discrete tubing, joint, and valve components that can take anywhere from one to three man-days to fabricate. Once installed, CCIMS also allows instruments to be clipped onto and off the pipe in seconds, easing the maintenance process.
