Cryogenic Version of a Vortex Flowmeter

Sierra Instruments says that its cryogenic Innova-Mass® multi-variable mass vortex flowmeter is preferred for measuring mass flow rates of cryogenic fluids down to -328°F (-200°C).

Sierra Cryogenic FlowmeterSierra Instruments introduces a new cryogenic version of its Innova-Mass® multi-variable mass vortex flowmeter. Preferred over traditional turbine meters for measuring mass flow rates of cryogenic fluids down to -328°F (-200°C), according to the company, this instrument additionally boasts:

  • Mass calculations performed with the latest density equations of state for liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon and CO2
  • The measurement of 5 process variables — mass flow, volumetric flow, temperature, pressure and density — through 1 process connection (Model 240 and 241). 
  • Dynamic, real-time calculation of the Reynolds number and the flow profile effects in large pipes.
  • More reliable, stable readings.
  • A special cryogenic temperature RTD.
  • High system accuracy as a result of everything being calibrated together.
  • A programmable analog output, in addition to a HART or MODBUS signal riding on the same 2 wires.
  • No moving parts to wear out or be serviced, thereby increasing service life.
