David Bowers, product manager pressure and process flow for ABB Measurement and Analytics, explains why vortex and swirl flowmeters are ideal for steam measurement applications.
With swirl flowmeters, just three and two pipe diameters upstream and downstream of an obstruction are needed, with no need for additional flow straighteners, making it ideal for installation in those locations in which space is at a premium.
ABB's Measurement Products business has released a 28-page application guide for Swirl flowmeters
. The guide describes how the flowmeters offer advantages for applications in mining and other industries such as steam, acids, solvents, water, petrochemicals and a variety of gases.
