Coriolis flowmeters are generally suitable for measuring liquids and gases. The flow measurement is to a large extend independent of changes in process conditions/parameters such as temperature, density, pressure, viscosity, conductivity and flow profile.
Due to this versatility the meter is easy to install and use. The Coriolis flowmeter is recognized for its high accuracy over a wide turn-down ratio and its ability to be a true multi parameter devise.
The SITRANS FC sensors are energized by an electro-mechanical driver circuit which oscillates the pipe at its resonant frequency. Two pick-ups, 1 and 2 are placed symmetrically on both sides of the driver. When liquid or gas flows through the sensor, Coriolis force will act on the measuring pipe and cause a pipe deflection which can be measured as a phase shift on pick-up 1 and 2. The phase shift is proportional to the mass flow rate.
The main applications of the Coriolis flowmeter can be found in all industries, such as:
The flowmeter consists of a sensor and a transmitter. The sensor can be digital with an integrated frontend DSL or for low flow sensors also analogue sensors directly connected to the transmitter.
There are following sensors available:
SITRANS FC MASS 2100 DI 1.5 to DI 15 mm in a single loop design
All sensors can be freely combined with three different transmitters in various configurations and protection style.
