If you are in the market searching for a flow meter, you must have come across a diverse range of these devices. Of course the importance of liquid and gas flow measurement cannot be underestimated. There is so much you gain by measuring the volumes of liquid and gas in your application. Whatever your application is, coriolis flow meters increase accuracy in your flow measurements. This in turn reduces wastage and puts you in control.
What to Know about Coriolis Flow Meters
These flow meters operate on the simple, proven and tested principle that if a particle inside a rotating body changes direction away or towards the center of rotation, it will generate inertial force which will act on the body. This device creates rotating motion inside vibrating tubes where the flow is going through.
The inertial force that results is proportional to the mass flow rate. In essence, by measuring the inertial force of deflection, your flow meter gives you the mass flow rate. One of the best reasons given for investing in a Coriolis flow meter is its ability to provide direct mass flow reading in addition to volumetric flow rates, process temperature, and density readings.
Why the Coriolis Flow Meters Stand Out
There are many flow meters you can choose for your application but there are reasons why more applications are going for coriolis flow meters. Here are a few of these reasons:
In summary, the technology used in coriolis flow meters rates highly for liquid flow. They guarantee high accuracy levels and can handle varying temperatures, pressure and viscosity. You can choose from among the different tube systems including U-Tubed (UT) flow meters, Micro Bend Tube (MB) flow meters and Delta Tubed (DT) flow meters.
When shopping for any of these flow meters, compare their accuracy, types of flow rates where they work, the reputation of the brand, output and temperatures.
