With no moving parts, all electronics are housed in a corrosion-resistant enclosure. Unlike meters containing metal or moving parts, the plastic vortex meters are perfect for aggressive or easily contaminated fluids. Applications range from ultra-pure water to highly corrosive chemicals and slurries.
Measures Steam, Gas, and Low Viscosity Liquids. Vortices generated by the flowing fluid stress the shedder bar in pulses, and the shedder bar transmits the stress pulses to the encapsulated piezoelectric sensor.
Provides a simple and reliable restriction for sensing flow as related to pressure differential. It allows users to install the meter in any full pipe orientation (horizontal, vertical or inverted). It is usually compact and rugged, offering several ranges of calibration to accommodate the requirements typical to process water applications.
Operating under the same principle of the vortex shedding measurement, this type of vortex flow meter is suitable for viscous,clean, or dirty waterlike liquids that are compatible with brass, PVDF, and FKM. These applications are found in most process industries, including rubber, steel, fabrication, manufacturing, refining, paper, chemical, food, petrochemical and power. Are not for suitable for flammable liquids or on gases such as air.
