A DP flowmeter is a DP flow transmitter that is connected to a primary element for the purpose of making a flow measurement.
For a more sophisticated case drain monitoring system, Hedland offers the Flow Alert Reed Switch and MR Flow Transmitter. The Reed Switch can automatically signal an alarm if case drain flow increases beyond a predetermined limit.
The MR flow transmitter is a variable area flow meter that provides a digital display of both flow rate and total accumulated flow.
Type 8041 Electromagnetic Flow Transmitter operates as a transmitter and/or ON/OFF control.
The T-Corder can be configured with up to two Intrinsically Safe Pressure Transducers, one Flow Transmitter and one Temperature Transducer.
The Micro Motion-exclusive, patented MVD[TM] (Multi Variable Digital) technology in the mass flow transmitter provides monitoring of ingredient temperature and density, providing immediate quality assurance alarms for out-of-specification values, as well as records for later audits.
Burkert offers a comprehensive "inline program" with each of these units incorporating an open-cell inline rotor: (1) Type 8030 Flow Sensor, for continuous flow measurement; (2) Type 8032 "All-in-One" Inline Rotor Flow Transmitter/Switch, for easy on/off control; (3) Type 8035 Digital Flow Transmitter, for continuous flow measurement and batch control.
The volume of fluid is measured by means of a pulse generating Clark vortex flow transmitter. An RTD sensor built into the flowmeter measures temperature at the meter and the remote temperature is measured by means of a precision RTD sensor mounted in a pipe tee.
The new Foxboro CFT50 Digital Coriolis mass flow transmitter features patented technology that allows it to continue operating during two-phase flow, thereby improving productivity in any industry where flow is involved such as food processing.,
The Model DM01D Magnetic Inductive Flow Transmitter is for flow rate applications of 100 ml/min to 200 l/min and tight mounting conditions.
In the resulting patented product, the Foxboro CFT50 digital Coriolis flow transmitter, incorporates new signal processing techniques to provide useful measurements of both mass flow and density, and the operational aspects of keeping the Coriolis meter running stably in single-phase or two-phase flow conditions.
