Christian Matt and Gerhard Eckert
designed space-saving Coriolis
flowmeters for large diameters.

Endress+Hauser applied for 230 patents in 2012. More than 240 innovators from across the group gathered at the 2013 Innovators’ Meeting held in Switzerland, to introduce their developments and share their experiences with their colleagues. Four highly-successful patented solutions received awards, while three teams were also recognised for significantly improving business processes. Awards were given for an improved power system; improved mass flow measurements based on the Coriolis principle (a previously unknown measurement error was corrected); eliminating time-consuming commissioning of the measuring probe in capacitive level measurement (the probe is now pre-calibrated at the factory); and a user-friendly bayonet lock for sensor-to-transmitter plug connectors.
