Spirax Sarco has unveiled its new VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter for mass, volumetric, and energy flow measurement on steam, liquid, and gas applications in sizes from 1 to 12 inches. The VLM10 combines an inline vortex meter, a built-in flow computer and integral temperature sensor.
The VLM10 is designed to be 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 allows steam measurements to be taken safely and enables the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first.
The built-in web server enables customers to monitor flow and meter health through the internet. Digital communications delivers information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs. The VLM10 is available in a wide range of connections and pressure ranges.
