Vortex flowmeter
VortexMaster FSV450

VortexMaster FSV450 is the universal vortex meter for high end flow applications. It uses a two-wire transmitter with leading edge DSP-Technology with enhanced flow computer functionality. Signals from remote sensors like pressure, temperature, density or gas content can be computed directly with the signals from internal flow and temperature. Ideal for direct mass flow or standard flow of gases and liquids or direct mass and energy flow on saturated and overheated steam.

Overview

VortexMaster flow meters are used for accurate measurement of the flow of gas, liquid and steam over a wide temperature range. Vortex meters are ideal for measuring petrochemical raw materials, demineralized water and direct steam mass flow, cost-effectively by employing integral temperature measurement.

The VortexMaster FSV450 is the advanced version with additional analog input for mass or energy flow measurement. Available with integral or remote transmitter with up to 30 m (98 ft.) cable length. Using optional inputs discrete flow computers are not longer needed in many applications.
