Vortex Meter Velocity Ranges:

The Vortex meter has completely different minimal and most move velocities it might measure primarily based on the fluid sort and meter dimension. Please be aware the values beneath for correct sizing of your meter. 

1/2” ANSI Flange: 4-70m/s or 787-13,800 f/m or 13-230 f/s

1” ANSI Flange: 3-70m/s or 590-13,800 f/m or 9.8-230 f/s

2” to 12” ANSI Flange: 1.5-70m/s or 30.2-13,800 f/m or 4.92-230 f/s

1/2” ANSI Flange: 4-65m/s or 787-12,790 f/m or 13-213 f/s

 1” ANSI Flange: 3-65m/s or 590-12, 790 f/m or 9.8-213 f/s

2” to 12” ANSI Flange: 1.5-65m/s or 300- 12,790 f/m or 4.9-213 f/s

1/2” to 12” ANSI Flange: 0.2-10m/s or 40- 1,968 f/m or .66-32.8 f/s

Nominal Vortex Flow Rates for Air

The desk beneath provides the minimal, nominal, and most velocities for the Vortex Meter for gases to help customers accustomed to Thermal Mass Flow Meter sizing guides relative to air, with a density of 0.075 lb/ft^3 for reference. As the strain goes up the flows go up as properly. For instance, if the strain is DOUBLED, so too does the mass move. Download chart beneath right here:

 IMPORTANT Note to Thermal Mass Flow Meter customers…

Did you realize that Multivariable Vortex Flow Meters provide a major benefit over Thermal Mass Flow Meters when it’s not essential to measure extremely low or extremely excessive flows?

Did you realize {that a} Multivariable Vortex Meter is just not affected by fuel composition? This means you may change fuel composition and STILL report the correct Mass Flow! Why make the most of a Gas Chromatograph to find out fuel composition to right your Thermal Mass Flow Meter measurement? If you want extremely low flows it is sensible but when your minimal flows are inside the measuring vary of a Vortex meter then take into account a Multivariable Vortex Mass Flow Meter.

As properly, it is very important be aware that Thermal Mass Flow Meters are fairly delicate to moisture within the move stream. The commonest undesirable impact is momentary move spikes that may upset your management system. Vortex Meters, alternatively are NOT delicate to moisture within the move stream and provide a major benefit over Thermal Mass Flow Meters if such spikes are decided to be undesirable.

Have you ever have issues with temperature swings inflicting your Thermal Mass Flow meter to over or underneath report the move measurement? The Multivariable Vortex Mass Flow Meter doesn’t exhibit these signs just because the vortex shedding velocity is just not a perform of temperature or strain. And, with the Multivariable Vortex Meters in-built Pressure and Temperature sensors you will get true Mass Flow, Pressure, AND Temperature and even collect Volume move on these uncommon events when deemed crucial. And, you may have a real strain measurement in addition to the Mass Flow and temperature. All at a worth very aggressive with Thermal Mass Flow Meters.

HOWEVER, in case you DO want very low or very excessive flows we advise the usage of Thermal Mass Flow Meters. As properly, Thermal Mass Flow Meters are supreme as “Insertion Meters” as they’re small and if, and ONLY if, there isn’t any moisture, or fuel composition adjustments then the Thermal Mass Flow Meter is an excellent selection.  Otherwise, the Vortex is the only option because it has NO sensitivity to the fuel composition or droplets or hydrocarbon particulate.

Refer to the chart above for the minimal and most flows for the Vortex Mass Flow Meter. Refer to the minimal and most velocities for the fluid you want to use to see if a vortex meter is an effective selection. If your move is inside the velocity vary of the Vortex meter AND you may have moisture or any change in fuel composition then a Vortex meter is a more sensible choice over the Thermal Mass Flow Meter.
