Vortex Flow Meter
CCI now carries Vortex multivariable meters from Azbil North America (PDF).
Vortex meters employ three sensing elements in a single meter: a vortex shedding velocity sensor, an RTD temperature sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer. Within this single instrument, you can measure the mass flow rates of gasses, liquids, and steam with far more accuracy than with external measurement techniques which may not adequately compensate for dynamic process conditions. With the flexibility to install in almost any location—including hot tapping—you can get precise measurements from nearly any location when you need it.
Multivariable capability within this single housing can also simplify systems, reduce equipment cost, and ease installation and maintnence hassles. The wide variety of options and configurations available ensures that there is a meter for any application requirement.
The Readings You Want
- Volumetric or mass flow monitoring of most liquids,
gasses, and steam
- Delivers multiple readings from a single installed
location, reducing cost and complexity
- Compensated mass flow readings
- Energy Monitoring in real time
- Simple and reliable – no moving parts, easy
installation, no fluid to sensor contact
- Rangeability up to 100:1
- Temperature up to 750ºF
- Pressure up to 1500 psig
Right Where You Need Them
- Inline install in pipes from 1/2” to 8”
- Hot-tap without process shutdown in any pipe
larger than 2”
- Field configurable
- Remote electronics option for harsh environments
or difficult locations
- 4-20mA – loop-powered technology saves on
- HART protocol – Standard
- Modbus and BACnet communications available
- FM, FMC, ATEX, IECEx Approved
Depending on your needs, these meters are available in the following configurations:
AX2200/2300 – Delivers direct readings of volumetric
flow rate in applications ranging from general water flows to
hudrocarbon fuel flow measurement.
AX2211/2311 – Integrates a precision 1000 Ω platinum
RTD temperature sensor for output of a compensated mass
reading, typically for flow rates of saturated steam.
AX2222/2322 – Flow computing functionality in a compact
field device. This multivariable instrument features both
temperature and pressure sensors to provide instantaneous
reading of compensated mass flow rates of gasses, liquids
and steam. Offers basic output and alarm as well as up to
three 4-20 mA outputs of live process measurements. These
output selections are field configurable. The AX2233/2333 offers the same functionality using an external pressure input.
AX2244/2344 – Allows for real-time measurement of
energy consumption for a facility or process in steam, hot
water, or chilled water. Uses the input from a second sensor
on the opposite leg of the process to calculate the change
in energy. Can be configured to read in Btu, joules, calories,
Watt-hours, Megawatt- hours, and horsepower hours. Local
or remote electronics indicate two temperatures, delta T,
mass total and energy total.
