McCrometer said its Wafer-Cone® Flow Meter's new direct mount configuration minimizes installation labor while ensuring accuracy. Direct mounting the transmitter is said to eliminate impulse lines, which is designed to reduce potential leak points by more than 50%.
The meter is ideal for gas or liquid service in line sizes from 1 to 6 inches. The meter's flangeless design makes installation fast and easy, while the interchangeable cone offers flexibility to accommodate changing flow conditions without the need for recalibration. When flow conditions change over time, the cone can be removed and replaced with a cone at a different beta ratio eliminating the need to buy a new meter.
With no moving parts the manufacturer said its well suited for the following applications: natural gas wellheads, CO2 and water injection, gas lift, compressor anti-surge, fuel gas, separator discharge, biogas reactors, cooling systems, plant HVAC, process gas lines and more.
The Wafer-Cone Flow Meter's differential pressure sensing technology with built-in flow conditioning is said to greatly reduce the required straight pipe run for installation as compared with technologies such as orifice plates and venturi meters.
