The F-2000 Series Vortex Flow Meter is designed for accurate, cost effective mass flow measurement of saturated steam. Operating as a loop powered device, each F-2000 Flow Meter is equipped with the internal temperature compensation required for direct mass flow measurement. Each meter is also provided with a 4-20mA analog output and a built-in local display.
Standard Features: Provides Direct Mass Flow Measurement for Saturated Steam- the use of a precision platinum RTD and the ability to perform complex density calculations allow the meter to provide a direct mass flow measurement without the need for a separate mass flow calculator.
Highly Accurate- when correctly installed, the mass flow measurement accuracy for saturated steam exceeds 1.5% of reading in the most common pipe sizes.
Simple Installation and Commissioning- loop powered design simplifies wiring and signal processing. Additionally, each meter is factory programmed and ready for use upon delivery. The built-in user interface provides access to all programming functions, including a comprehensive self diagnostic capability. This self diagnostic function can detect bi-phase flow and flow rates outside the programmed operating parameters. It can also identify common installation problems.
State-of-the-Art Vortex Flow Sensing- the use of titanium in the construction of the shedder bar offers both improved durability and improved sensitivity. Titanium is stronger, lighter and more flexible than steel. Durability is improved by using a stronger more flexible material. Lighter weight and increased flexibility also improve the ability to sense the lower amplitude vortices associated with low velocity flow.
Advanced Signal Processing Enhances Accuracy- every meter is supplied with advanced filtering algorithms. These algorithms allow the meter to establish continuous real-time norms for signal strength and quality. Sudden changes to the anticipated strength or quality of the incoming signal is rejected as noise. Additional signal processing cancels out the effect of common mode noise. Common mode noise is the type of noise most often associated with vibration in the piping system.
Individually Calibrated and Programmed for Each Application- every meter undergoes a 5 point calibration from 0-250 ft/sec. In addition, each meter is individually programmed using application specific data supplied by the customer.
