FVM100 Series

When a columnar object (object that generates bortices)is placed in the flow path of a fluid, regular channels of vortices, called Karman vortex channels, are generated at the back of the object. Since the frequency of a vortex generated is linearly proportional to the flow velocity within a given range, the flow amount can be measured by counting the number of vortices. Typical applications: superheated steam, saturated steam and regular fluid volume flow rate or weight flow rate measuring; cooling tower and water condensate; municipal water treatment and distribution; boiler feed water; chemical processing; pool and water park

 Characteristics

  • The frequency of pulse output is proportional to flow rate, no zero drift, very stable performance.
  • High measuring accuracy: ?.0% for liquid; ?.5% for gas;
  • Sensing parts are noncontact to medium - means high reliability, simple structure, easy to install, low maintenance cost.
  • Applicable to liquid, gas, steam and some mixed fluid measuring
  • Wide measuring range
  • No compensation is needed for liquid volume measuring; But, temperature and pressure compensation are necessary for steam weight flow rate and or gas volume flow rate measuring.
  • Low pressure drop, energy-efficient flow meter
  • Easy to install: vertical, horizontal or arbitrary angle to pipelines.
  • In given Reynolds number range, the frequency of output signal is independent to fluid density, viscosity or components. Calibrating in one medium and used for others.
  • Pulse or electrical output signal could be transmitted long distance, Hart protocol available.
