Yokogawa and Eagle Research Enter Agreements

Yokogawa Corporation of America and Eagle Research Corporation Enter Private Label and Supplier Agreements

Yokogawa Corporation of America, the leading provider of industrial automation and test and measurement solutions, announced that it has entered into a private label agreement to resell Eagle Research E-Series Flow Computer under Yokogawa's Y-Flow™ brand label. In addition, Yokogawa and Eagle Research signed a supplier agreement contract where Yokogawa will provide pressure transmitter sensor assemblies for Eagle Research's E-Series Flow Computer.

"We are very excited about the strategic partnership formed between our two companies. By combining the power of the newly released E-Series flow computers with the accuracy and stability of the Yokogawa transmitters we truly feel we are offering the most flexible and powerful platform on which to support the stringent measurement and control needs required of our industry," said John Booth, Director of Sales and Marketing for Eagle Research Corporation.

Electronic flow computers are deployed to calculate and record flow rate using industry standard algorithms as natural gas and other hydrocarbons pass through a meter of a segmented section of pipeline. These meters could be, but not limited to, orifice meters, linear meters, ultrasonic meters, or Coriolis meters. An electronic flow computer is one piece of an electronic gas measurement system. The electronic flow computer collects live uncorrected gas or liquid volume through any type of meter and calculates corrected volume and energy. This is achieved by measuring live differential pressure, live flowing pressure, live flowing temperature, and/or by counting pulses from the meter. Additionally, other devices can feed the flow computer, such as an online chromatograph to provide additional data, which allows a more granular look at volume and energy.

"Combining Yokogawa's state of the art DPharp transmitter technology and reliability with Eagle Research's in-house engineering and manufacturing, the partnership will enhance the ability of Yokogawa's product offering to support the needs of the market," said Aaron Lee, Product Manager for Yokogawa Corporation of America.
