OMEGA has launched the FMC-5000 Coriolis Mass Flow Metre, designed to meet the challenges of measuring mass fluids that can be corrosive or difficult to measure.
This technology is widely used for flow measurements and custody transfer in many industries such as petroleum, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, food and dairy, and more.
The metre has been designed according to the Coriolis Force Principle. Under the alternating current effect, the electromagnetic coils mounted on the measuring tube will make two parallel measuring tubes vibrating at a certain fixed frequency. Whenever mass, either liquid or gas, flows through the measuring tubes, Coriolis force is generated, causing a ‘bending’ or ‘deflection’ in the top of the tubes. This deflection is sensed as a phase shift between two electronic pick-ups mounted on the tubes. The degree of phase shift is directly proportional to the mass flow within the tubes. The mass flow rate can be calculated by detecting the phase shift of the tubes. The temperature is also measured and used for compensation.
