New swirl and vortex flowmeters with quick reaction time

By Chemical Engineering |

A new range of vortex and swirl flowmeters (photo) includes the SwirlMaster and VortexMaster product lines. The new SwirlMaster features a unique swirl technology that enables very short upstream and downstream piping requirements, which saves installation costs and enables high-accuracy flow measurement in tight spaces. The VortexMaster follows the same philosophy with a lower-cost entry-level version (FSV430) for simple applications. Both versions are available in a remote design with a cable length of up to 30 m. With the new devices, the reaction time for a change in flowrate is reduced from about 3–6 s (with previous models) to only about 1 s. — ABB, Zurich, Switzerland
