KROHNE SUMMIT 8800 flow computers offer a full colour touch screen to visualize process diagrams and measurement data. Using a modular design, where each application or stream runs on a dedicated board, the result is a cost effective approach, with lower hardware installation requirements. Furthermore, totally different liquid and gas streams can be combined in one single flow computer.

SUMMIT 8800 is available as a hardware product for configuration on site by the customer, or can be supplied as a fully pre-configured and tested site solution. For a pre-configured unit the flow computer will be factory programmed and tested according to the Functional Design Specification (FDS). Customer specific process details would be included wherever required. KROHNE flow computers comply with all major custody transfer recommendations and regulations, such as API, AGA, OIML and MID. For any such custody transfer applications the configuration will be in full compliance with the requested standard, including 3rd party approval and sealing.
