SITRANS F X vortex flowmeters measure flow rate by detecting the frequency at which alternating vortices are shed from a bluff body inserted into the flow stream. This principle of measurement is known as Von Karman’s vortex street rinciple: alternating vortices form behind an object in a stream. The frequency of the alternating vortices is proportional to the flow rate. The passage of a vortex causes a slight stress on a pick-up placed downstream of the bluff body. The stress is picked up and counted as pressure surges by a dual Piezo crystal placed inside the wing.
SITRANS F X vortex flowmeters provide accurate volumetric and mass flow measurement of steam, gases and liquids as an all-in-one solution with integrated temperature and pressure compensation.
The SITRANS FX300 is a flowmeter in a single or dual transmitter version, suitable for measuring industrial steam, gases, as well as conductive and non-conductive liquids, e.g. steam (saturated steam, superheated steam), industrial ases (compressed air, nitrogen, liquefied gases, flue gases), and conductive and non-conductive liquids (demineralized water, boiler feed water, solvents, heat transfer oil).
The unit is available in a compact or a remote version with up to 30 meter distance from flowmeter to transmitter. When ordering a remote version the transducer cables are pre-mounted and ready for installation.
