Vortex meter VTX 2

The VTX vortex meter is used for flow and volumetric measurements of conductive and non-conductive fluids, gases and vapours in all industrial branches.

Application:

Applications include volumetric measurements for balancing (compressed air systems, heat carriers, vapours, chemical products, for example), process control and high throughput applications, thermal oil.

Characteristics
  • Extremely rugged and stable measuring instrument
  • maintenance-free
Special features
  • insensitive to pulsations, pressure bursts and temperature shocks
  • with auto-adaptive digital signal processing
  • with P- and T-correction
  • 3 simultaneously and independently usable signals (current output HART®,pulses)
  • with an optional shut-off valve, the sensor and the electronics can be replaced under process conditions
  • optional with complete measuring section and universal flow computer for pressure and temperature compensation
