Evaluation International are pleased to announce the establishment of a national EMPHASIS ASSESSMENT register which is being made available to Evaluation International Member companies.  This register brings together all planned, in-progress and complete Emphasis Assessments, undertaken on behalf of the Sponsor Companies. 

In addition to this Evaluation International has established a Working Group to oversee the development of the Register and supporting services. Any organisations wishing to access the register or participate in the working group should email: enquiries@evaluation-international.com and a member of our team will be happy to assist.



Evaluation International has bilateral agreements with both EXERA and WIB. These agreements enable EI member companies to access the reports produced by these associations and to collaborate in working groups and projects. 

In addition, EI participates in a wider consortium of end-user organisations across Europe with member companies that operate on a global scale. The aim of this consortium is to ensure that the widest possible community of large-scale EC & I end-user organisations are provided with a platform on which to share knowledge, network, collaborate and share.

The consortium includes the following organisations:


EXERA – the French end-users association for industrial automation. [https://www.exera.com]
WIB – a process automation users association covering the Netherlands and Belgium. [https://www.wib.nl]
CLUI – the Italian Association for Automation and Instrumentation Systems. [http://www.cluias.it]
NAMUR – the German end-user association of automation technology and digitalisation in process industries. [https://www.namur.net]

Thermal Mass Flow Meter - Kurz 454 FTB


In this report flow meter Kurz 454 FTB (serial no. FD21544A) with firmware version 1.04 has been evaluated. The flow meter can be used to measure and monitor air flow in ventilation systems and in other type of air/gas ducts. It indicates flow rate or velocity on its internal display as well as giving an analogue (4-20 mA) signal output. There are also digital alarm output signals. During most tests the flow meter was installed in a small test duct, exposing only the sensor (the tip of the insertion rod) to the flowing air. By recalculation of the reference flow rate and reference velocity, both measured velocity and normalised volume flow rate from the instrument could be verified.
