Coriolis Flowmeters: Simultaneous measurement of mass, density, temperature, and viscosity
The advantages of using Coriolis flowmeters have made this technology a preferred choice in a large range of industry sectors, including life sciences, chemicals and petrochemicals, oil and gas, and food and beverage. Furthermore, virtually all fluids can be measured with a Coriolis flowmeter: cleaning agents and solvents, fuels, vegetable oils, animal fats, latex, silicon oils, alcohol, fruit solutions, toothpaste, vinegar, condiments, gases, liquefied gases, among many others.
So what exactly are the advantages of Coriolis flowmeters?
One for All – Multivariable Coriolis Flowmeters: The ability to measure several process variables all at the same time opens up completely new application fields. Mass flow, density and temperature (the primary measured variables) can be used to derive other variables such as volume flow, solid contents, concentrations, and complex density functions. Multivariable Coriolis flowmeter sensors can also be used to produce viscosity measurements.
Very High Measuring Accuracy: Typically you can achieve ±0.1% accuracy with high-quality Coriolis flowmeters. Optional features can bring about an accuracy rate of ±0.05%.
Reliable Measurement in a Variety of Conditions: Coriolis flowmeters are independent of physical fluid properties, not affected by flow profiles, and no inlet/outlet runs are necessary to achieve accurate measurements.
