- Resolution up to ± 0.2%

- Accuracy upto ±1% FS

- Compatible with RS232, RS485 & HART Communication Interfaces

Working Principle

A Vortex Flowmeter has a bluff body, or shedder, placed in the fluid flow stream that causes vortices. The shedder acts as the primary device. As the fluid flows around the shedder, velocity increases and pressure decrease on one side, while velocity decreases and pressure increase on the other side. The alternating forces cause vortices to form that are picked up by the sensing mechanism (sensors). The fluid flow rate is obtained from the frequency (detected by the sensor), which is directly proportional to the velocity of the fluid.

Benefits to End User

▪ It measures Mass flow as it has pressure and temperature compensation.
▪ This is simple, user-friendly, accurate, and provides reliable measurement.
▪ The end-user can plan corrective and preventive actions required in regular day-to-day maintenance.
