The Coriolis RCT1000 line of mass flowmeters (photo) was recently enhanced with the addition of an explosion-proof transmitter with intrinsically safe sensors. The hazardous-location certification opens up an array of new applications for RCT1000 flowmeters, including chemical and petrochemical processing, oil exploration and refining, and a wide variety of industrial processing applications in potentially hazardous environments. The RCT1000 mass flowmeter identifies flowrate by directly measuring fluid mass over a wide range of temperatures with a high degree of accuracy. For fluids consisting of two liquids or a liquid with suspended solids, this system can derive the concentration and mass of each fluid based on the density measurement. The unobstructed, open-flow design makes it suitable for a variety of fluids, such as slurries and other viscous, nonconductive fluids. Booth 1203 — Badger Meter, Inc., Milwaukee, Wis.
