Vortex flow meters for steam and gas metering
The task of measuring the flow rate of media, heat power, determination of the parameters of media can be easily solved using precision equipment manufactured by the German company Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik.
The company was founded over 100 years ago. The first flowmeter based on the Venturi principle was shipped to the customer in 1923. And in 1932, the company received a patent for the principle of metering liquid consumption using rotating oval gears, which in subsequent years was widely used in the design of a meter with oval gears for recording the volumetric flow rate of various media, including petroleum products. In 1976, a density meter was introduced for the continuous determination of the density of liquids with high accuracy and reliability. In 1977, the production of vortex flowmeters was mastered. Today, the range of products includes more than 500 types of various instruments and devices for measuring flow, density, concentration, dispensers, as well as electronic controllers that allow determining derived quantities and automating technological processes.
Engineers of OPEKS ENERGOSYSTEM use a vortex flowmeter of the Vortex VTX series to account for steam and compressed air. A distinctive feature of this model from other manufacturers of vortex flowmeters is the complete absence of moving parts in the measuring unit, which ensures a consistently high accuracy of readings over a long period of operation. The series of vortex flowmeters VTX2 is presented in both flanged and wafer-type (sandwich) versions with diameters from DN15 to DN300. The standard maximum operating temperature is 260 C and the pressure class PN40, in a special version the maximum operating temperature is 450 C and the pressure class PN100.
