Sanitary Flow Meters

Common sanitary flow meters are sanitary magnetic flow meters and sanitary turbine flow meters. Composed of 304/316 stainless steel. A Sanitary flowmeter with Tri-Clamp fittings is easier to install and disassemble. Suitable for the food hygiene industry.

Sanitary Flow Meter uses a new type of sanitary lining material and lining technology, which meets the sanitary requirements of the food industry. It uses a stainless steel shell and stainless steel clamp connection. It is convenient for the quick disassembly and cleaning of the electromagnetic flow meter. Magnetic flow meter in a sanitary version which meets the strict requirements of the food-processing and bio-technology/ pharmaceutical industries.

Hygienic Mass Flow Meter

The hygienic mass flowmeter is mainly used to measure the mass flow, total amount and density of the medium. At the same time, it can also measure the volume flow and total amount, medium temperature, moisture content, alcohol content of alcohol. Two liquids that are mixed evenly The concentration of raw materials in the process flow, etc.

Sanitary Flow Meter, also called sanitary turbine flow meter or Hygienic turbine flowmeter. Ensure Accurate Flow Measurement in Sanitary food-processing and bio-technology industries.

Sanitary turbine flow meters have stainless steel bodies and come standard with Tri-Clover fittings. A Sanitary flow meter is suitable for measuring liquid without impurities. It can output pulse frequency signal. It is used to detect instantaneous flow and total integrated flow. Sanitary flow meter can be used in food, sport drink, liquor and other beverage industries, in preprocess applications.

Hygienic Metal Rotameter

Sanitary metal rotor flowmeters are mainly used in food, beverage, pharmaceutical and other industries. In the production process, it mainly plays the role of metering, ingredient control, and finished product filling. The material needs to be corrosion-resistant to prevent contamination of the product. The structure should not be too complicated and should be simpler. To prevent residual material inside the flowmeter, it is inconvenient to clean. These conditions are met to meet the usage requirements.

For example, a peanut oil processing company needs to use a flowmeter to measure the volume weight of the primary processed oil and the final refined oil, as well as the quantitative control in the filling process.

Vortex flow meter advantages and disadvantages

Advantages of vortex flowmeter

  • The vortex flowmeter has no moving parts, and the measuring element has a simple structure, reliable performance and long service life.
  • The vortex flowmeter has a wide measuring range. The turndown ratio can generally reach 1:10.
  • The volume flow of the vortex flowmeter is not affected by thermal parameters such as the temperature, pressure, density or viscosity of the fluid being measured. Generally, no separate calibration is required. It can measure the flow of liquid, gas or steam.
  • The pressure loss caused by it is small.
  • The accuracy is high, the repeatability is 0.5%, and the maintenance is small.

Disadvantages of vortex flowmeter

  • The volume flow of the vortex flowmeter is not affected by the temperature, pressure, density and other thermal parameters of the measured fluid. But the final measurement result of liquid or steam should be the mass flow rate, and for gas, the final measurement result should be the standard volume flow rate. Both mass flow and standard volume flow must be converted by fluid density, and changes in fluid density caused by changes in fluid working conditions must be considered.
  • The main factors that cause flow measurement errors are: measurement errors caused by uneven pipeline flow rates; inability to accurately determine the density of the medium when fluid conditions change; and the wet saturated steam is assumed to be dry saturated steam for measurement. If these errors are not limited or eliminated, the total measurement error of the vortex flowmeter will be very large.
  • Poor vibration resistance. External vibration will cause measurement errors of the vortex flowmeter, or even fail to work normally. The high-velocity impact of the channel fluid will cause additional vibrations to the cantilever of the vortex generator, which reduces the measurement accuracy. The influence of large pipe diameter is more obvious.
  • Poor adaptability to measuring dirty media. The generating body of the vortex flowmeter is very easy to be dirty by the medium or entangled by the dirt, and the change of the geometric body size will greatly affect the measurement accuracy.
  • High requirements for straight pipe sections. Experts pointed out that the straight pipe section of the vortex flowmeter must ensure the front 40D and the 20D to meet the measurement requirements.
  • Poor temperature resistance. Generally, vortex flowmeters can only measure the fluid flow of media below 300°C.
