Sanitary Differential Pressure Flowmeter

The left part of the sanitary differential pressure flowmeter is a sanitary stainless steel shell, and the right part is the electronic component cavity. The stainless steel shell is a straight-through pipe, and the interior is designed with no gaps and no dead ends. The internal surface of the straight-through pipeline is sanitary polished.

A differential pressure sensor diaphragm is arranged in the straight-through pipeline to form a throttling device. The front side of the diaphragm of the differential pressure sensor faces the direction of fluid flow. The negative side of the diaphragm of the differential pressure sensor is parallel to the flow direction of the fluid. When fluid flows through this straight-through pipeline, due to the throttling effect of the differential pressure sensor capsule inside the pipeline, a pressure difference is formed on the positive and negative sides of the differential pressure sensor capsule.

The differential pressure sensor capsule is provided with a Swiss ROCKSENSOR differential pressure measurement chip, a static pressure measurement chip and a temperature measurement chip. It can measure and obtain the differential pressure signal on the positive and negative side of the differential pressure sensor capsule, the static pressure signal of the pipeline and the temperature signal of the fluid.

3A Sanitary Flow Meters

The “3-A” standard is recognized as an important international health standard, and people in the industry will often mention it. Since 1956, the 3-A mark has become a registered mark used to prove that the materials, hygienic design, and production and assembly procedures of the equipment affixed to the label meet the requirements of the 3A standard. In order to improve the credibility of the 3-A mark, in 2003, under the leadership of the 3-A SSI, the third party verification (TPV) was implemented.

With the continuous development and progress of the certification, the 3-A symbol far exceeds a symbol. Based on decades of cooperation and recognition of key stakeholders such as dairy products, food health experts, equipment manufacturers, etc., the 3-A brand has been widely recognized in the food processing equipment market. The value of 3A is manifested in many aspects of stakeholders:

1) The value of 3A to food processors
As leading manufacturers, processors and USDA and FDA regulatory health experts have participated in the development of the 3A standard. Users of dairy processing equipment can ensure that their equipment complies with all applicable hygiene regulations and can achieve effective cleaning. And it can be expected that the inspection by the regulatory agency can be successfully completed.

2) The value of 3A to equipment manufacturers
Because of the high recognition of 3A in the sanitary equipment range. It has now become a passport to enter the US food, dairy, and pharmaceutical and sanitary equipment markets. It is also a symbol of global quality products. It is well-known in various markets around the world. Because the 3A symbol has been recognized by almost all health experts and regulatory officials. Products affixed with the 3A logo can be widely accepted worldwide.

At the same time, because each standard details the hygienic aspects of materials, design and manufacturing. Therefore, the equipment meets the requirements of processors and health experts. Standards also reduce mold, tooling costs, and the expected delivery time due to the lack of uniform standards. At the same time, 3A certification has also formed a huge marketing advantage.

Where should a flow meter be placed?

Different types of flow meters have different requirements for the choice of installation location. Where to install the specific flowmeter, you need to decide according to the product you purchase.
Such as electromagnetic flowmeter.
1. Choice of installation site:
  ·Choose a place where there is no negative pressure in the measuring tube;
  ·Avoid installing in strong electric equipment accessories such as motors, transformers, etc., to avoid electrical interference;
  ·Avoid places with strong corrosive gas around the installation location;
  ·When measuring mixed-phase fluids, avoid places that cause phase separation;
  ·The ambient temperature should generally be within the range of -25℃~60℃, avoid direct sunlight as much as possible;
  ·Installed in a vibration-free or small vibration environment, if the vibration is too large, fixed supports should be added to the pipes before and after the sensor;
  ·The relative humidity of the environment should be within the range of 10%~90%;
  ·Avoid installing in a place that can be directly drenched or submerged by rain;
2. Requirements for the length of straight pipe section: (D is the inner diameter of the flowmeter)
The electromagnetic flowmeter has relatively low requirements for the front and rear straight pipe sections. Generally for 90° elbows, T-shaped tees, reducers, fully open valves and other flow resistance parts. There should be a 5D straight pipe section away from the center line of the electrode axis of the electromagnetic flowmeter (not the end face of the sensor).
For valves with different opening degrees (such as valves with adjustable opening degrees), the length of the upstream straight pipe section needs to be 10D. One
Generally, the straight pipe downstream of the sensor only needs 3D to meet the requirements. When measuring mixed liquids of different media, the distance between the mixing point and the flowmeter must be at least 30D.
3. Installation position and flow direction:
The electromagnetic flowmeter can be installed on the pipeline horizontally, vertically and obliquely

What does a flow meter control?

The flow meter itself does not have a control function. The flowmeter can output signals according to the requirements of your control system. Such as 4-20mA, pulse signal, etc. And HART or, RS485, etc.
If you need a flow meter with a switch output function, it should be a flow switch.

What is the most accurate flow meter?

Generally speaking, the accuracy of mass flow meters is the highest. What is measured is mass quantity, which is a flow meter often used as a trade settlement.
The flowmeter can generally reach 1.0 level, and 0.5 level is considered high accuracy. The accuracy of liquid flow meters is generally 0.2%-0.5%.
Of course, the accuracy of the flowmeter still depends on the site conditions. If the measurement of temperature and pressure is not very difficult, the accuracy of the flowmeter must be relatively high. In addition, to ensure the accuracy of the flowmeter, correct installation and use are also very important.

How do you clean a flow meter?

The cleaning method of the flowmeter should be determined according to the type of the flowmeter and the measured medium. It can be rinsed with water, or a cleaning solution can be used according to specific conditions. It is best to remove and clean.
