Vortex flowmeter for advanced energy measurement

October 8th, 2014, Published in Articles: Energize, Articles: EngineerIT


krohne-019-11-2014Krohne has introduced the new Optiswirl 4200 vortex flowmeter for the measurement of conducting and non-conducting liquids, gases and steam. The new device is targeted at auxiliary and supply applications in various industries, such as internal monitoring of energy flows for saturated and superheated steam or hot water, and heat metering applications. Areas of usage also cover steam boiler monitoring, burner consumption measurement or compressed air network monitoring, including FAD applications. Based on the experience gained with its predecessor (Optiswirl 4070), the new flowmeter comes with some advanced features: in addition to gross heat calculation for steam, the new flowmeter now includes net heat calculation for steam and condensate (hot water) as well. With one temperature sensor integrated as standard, the device can be installed as heat meter in the feed line directly connected with an external temperature sensor in the return line. The gross and net heat calculation can be fed into a DCS to support advanced energy management.
