Vortex shedding flow meter, also called Vortex flow meter. Vortex shedding flow meter is suitable for measuring steam flow rate as well as liquids and gases. Vortex shedding flow meter, easy installation, low cost, analog and 4-20mA output. Pressure & temperature compensation can improve the sensor for more accurate measurement. Others flow meters can also measurement flow rate of liquids, like ultrasonic and turbine.

Applications of industrial vortex flow meters
Steam Flow Measurement
Steam has often been described as the ‘lifeblood’ of the industry.
Vortex meters are known to be superior devices for steam flow measurement,
due to their inherent linear measurement, large turndown,
low-pressure drop, and high accuracy.
The vortex flowmeter is ideal for high temperature, superheated,
and saturated steam applications,
since it eliminates the need for separate components and associated installation temperature.
In addition, it provides quality,
dependability and high-pressure ratings,
along with a stable and reliable flow measurement.
Liquid applications in the oil refinery industry become challenging,
since the process liquid is a higher viscosity at lower process temperatures.
As a result, clogging becomes an issue when a flow meter has moving parts.
Sino-Instrument vortex meters have advanced self-diagnostics,
that alert the operator if clogging or plugging in the area around the shedder bar are present.
Alerts are also triggered in high-vibration environments
and those with excessive flow fluctuations in the area around the shedder bar.
This enables automatic condition-based maintenance.

Know more about vortex shedding flow meter:
What is a vortex shedding flow meter?
A vortex flow meter is a flow measurement device best suited for flow measurements,
where the introduction of moving parts presents problems.
They are available in industrial grade, brass or all plastic construction.
Sensitivity to variations in the process conditions are low,
and with no moving parts have relatively low wear compared to other types of flow meters.
Vortex flow meters operate under the vortex shedding principle,
where an oscillating vortexes occur,
when a fluid such as water flow past a bluff (as opposed to streamlined) body.
The frequency that the vortexes are shed depend on the size and shape of the body.
It is ideal for applications where low maintenance costs are important.
Industrial size vortex meters are custom built and require appropriate sizing for specific applications.
How does a vortex flow meter work?
The Vortex Shedding flow meter detects the vortices,
that are created by a process medium going past a bluff body.
The frequency of these vortices can be equated into flow velocity,
which, in turn, is used to calculate volumetric flow rate.
The integral temperature sensor is used in saturated steam service,
to determine the operating conditions and specific volume of the steam being measured.
The steam table incorporated into the electronics,
then calculates the flow or energy of the steam flowing through the meter.
The optional pressure sensor can be used for similar calculations,
for gasses and superheated steam.
Intelligent Signal Processing (ISP) provides stable readings, free of external influences.
