Inline Vortex Flowmeter

April 19, 2012

Spirax Sarco’s VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter is ideal for mass, volumetric, and energy flow measurement on steam, liquid and gas applications. The VLM10 combines an inline vortex meter, a built-in flow computer and an integral temperature sensor, giving users an elegant all in one solution for their metering needs. The VLM10 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ± 1.5% of range over a wide 20:1 flow range. The fully welded, no-gasket design ensures safe measurement of steam and allows the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first. The built-in Web server allows customers to monitor flow and monitor meter health through the Internet. Digital communications deliver information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs.
