GE Sensing”s PanaFlow MV multivariable vortex flowmeters are the newest addition to the PanaFlow flowmeter line. The flowmeters, which feature both insertion and flanges, measure flow, temperature, pressure, density, and mass flow using a single point of contact. A single MV meter provides stable and reliable solutions for accurate measurement of high temperature and high velocity steam, liquids, and gases. The single meter design is available with a range of options and configurations to meet specific customer applications. Also, the integrated pressure and temperature sensors are designed to reduce installation and lifecycle costs. Key applications for the PanaFlow MV include power generation (steam), industrial (HVAC, district energy management), commercial (building, campus and facility management), oil & gas (allocation of natural gas), and petrochemical (mass balancing, reaction processes heating). PanaFlow MV’s multivariable design consists of a vortex-shedding velocity sensor, an RTD (resistance temperature detector) sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer that measures the mass flowrate of steam, gases, and liquids. Using algorithms the meter can automatically calculate the energy usage in steam and provide the data formats including BTU and kwH. Built-in HART and Modbus protocol support provide seamless communication to the end-user’s process monitoring software. It is a cost effective, accurate, and reliable meter for volumetric and mass flow measurement for small diameter pipes from 0.5 to eight inches (15mm to 200mm).
