Badger Meter Introduces RCT1000 Coriolis Mass Flow Meter With Hazardous Location Option

June 2, 2016
Coriolis flow meters feature explosion-proof transmitter with intrinsically safe sensors.

Badger Meter enhances its RCT1000 Coriolis Mass Flow Meters with an explosion-proof transmitter with intrinsically safe sensors. The hazardous location certification opens up new applications for RCT1000 flow meters, including chemical and petrochemical processing, oil exploration and refining and a variety of industrial processing applications in potentially hazardous environments.

The hazardous location certification applies to the RCT1000 dual tube Coriolis flow meters with 1/2 to 3 inch connectors and includes low flow options. The Coriolis flow meters are certified for Class I, Division 1 area and include a newly designed, integrally mounted, explosion-proof transmitter. The new transmitter offers an unlock feature to prevent accidental activation, as well as a local LCD display with optical buttons, which allows the operator to navigate the display through the glass without opening the enclosure. In addition to meter configuration, RCT Console software provides data logging, trend analysis and the HealthTrack feature allowing for advanced diagnostics of a flow process.

The Badger Meter RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meter identifies flow rates by directly measuring fluid mass and density over a wide range of fluid temperatures and viscosities. The unobstructed, open flow design and measurement technique makes the RCT1000 suitable for a variety of fluids such as vegetable oils and fats, slurries, adhesives, coatings and hardeners, chemicals, petrochemicals and other viscous, nonconductive fluids that are difficult to measure with other technologies.
