Even though vortex meters are not as accurate as Coriolis meters, they offer accuracy readings of better than 1 percent, depending on fluid and application.
A new course, “Vortex Flowmeters: Applications,” has been released on the KROHNE Academy online learning platform.
Automation Service now offers the remanufactured Rosemount 8800 Series Vortex Flowmeter in response to customer demand for vortex flowmeters.
To calculate energy usage and loads for a heating system, the question is: Which side of the system should we measure to provide the most accurate and encompassing measurement results?
This is the first of a two-part series on broad-based trends in flowmeter technology and applications based on results of Flow Research’s new Volume X: The World Market for Flowmeters, 4th Edition. Part I focuses on new-technology flowmeters. Part II will focus on trends in traditional-technology flowmeters.
Japan’s Azbil Corporation (formerly Yamatake) has acquired majority ownership of VorTek Instruments, LLC, a U.S. manufacturer and supplier of vortex flowmeters.
The past five years have seen major product enhancements to vortex flowmeters. One perennial problem with vortex flowmeters has been susceptibility to vibration error. Vibrations in the line can cause a vortex flowmeter to falsely generate a vortex signal, or to incorrectly read an existing vortex. Suppliers have responded by implementing software and electronics, including digital signal processing, that have reduced the susceptibility of vortex meters to interference from vibration.
