EC: VLM10 Inline Vortex Mass Flowmeter

Process Control - Process sensors: The VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter measures mass, volumetric, and energy flows on steam, liquid, and gas applications in sizes 1 inch to 12 inch. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention.

By Control Engineering November 12, 2012

The VLM10 combines an inline vortex meter, a built in flow computer and an integral temperature sensor giving users an elegant all in one solution for their metering needs. The VLM10 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ±1.5% of range over a wide 20:1 flow range. The fully welded, no gasket design, insures safe measurement of steam and allows the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first. The built in web server allows customers to monitor flow and monitor meter health through the internet. Digital communications delivers information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs. The VLM10 is available in a wide range of connections and pressure ranges.
