Other meter types use external process measurements to calculate mass flow. The temperature and pressure devices are typically not installed in the same location as the flow meter. Process conditions can vary greatly between the two locations, causing inaccurate mass flow readings. The GE Panametrics PanaFlow™ MV80 vortex flow meter measures velocity, temperature and pressure at the same location, which provides more accurate process measurement.
Integrating pressure and temperature into the vortex flow meter simplifies system complexity and helps minimize initial capital costs, as well as reduce the installation costs. There is no need to purchase additional instrumentation to monitor pressure and temperature since the GE Panametrics PanaFlow™ MV80 vortex flow meter will output all parameters to your data acquisition system. The product line is available with a wide range of options and meter configurations to meet your specific application requirements.
