Digital Vortex Flowmeter

People choose the digital vortex flowmeter for its dependability and accuracy, but it’s also a standard for steam applications because of its ease of installation and minimal maintenance costs. Other meter technologies suffer in high-pressure, high-temperature situations, but the vortex flow meter has a wide range and a minimal pressure drop, making it a popular choice among flow professionals.

Traditional vortex technologies are easily effected by vibration. In order to provide stable result, they can only cut off some useful signal mixed with vibration signal and flow signal

VFM60 vortex meter can distinguish the vibration signal from the flow signal, and eliminate the interference. So it can provide stable reading under vibration even the flow is down to 2m/s.

Vortex flow meter Work principle is to rearching the corresponding relationship between fluid vibration frequency and flow velocity. It measures the flow velocity of fluid by measuring the frequency of sensor output signal. That leaves many vortex meter manuafacturet faced the prolems of vibration, electromagnetic interference and the lower limit of measurement in the development and application of vortex type flowmeter.

Early in 2015, Comate have cooperate with USTC signal processing laboratory and put an unique design method in order to detect the real change of electric charge completely generated by fluids. After that Comate put VFM60MV in factory like compressed air, boiler steam, heating system nad owned a good feedback. The interference solved also makes Comate vortex meter able to measure down to 2m/s velocity than other brand in the marketplace.

The von Kármán effect asserts that when flow passes by a bluff structure, a repeating pattern of swirling vortices is formed. Vortex flow metres use this principle to detect fluid velocity.

With no moving parts, a simple structure, and a low failure rate, the vortex flowmeter is a broad-spectrum flow metre that can be used for metering, measurement, and control of most steam, gas, and liquid flow for a highly unique media adaptability, high stability, and high reliability.

For most liquids, Coriolis mass flow metre digital offers the most precise results, but they are also the most expensive. They have the benefit of not requiring any prior information of the fluid being transported. Thermal mass flow metres are a less precise but nonetheless accurate way of measuring mass flow. They do, however, necessitate an understanding of the fluid’s specific heat capacity.

The Coriolis effect is used in mass digital vortex flow meters. Can be used to measure concentration and solids content in clean and dirty liquids, gases, and slurries. Suitable for situations with changing temperatures and pressures.
