Functionality of our Flow Meters
TRICOR Coriolis Mass Flow Meter
The mass flow meter makes use of the Coriolis force. This describes the deflection of a moving body in a rotating system caused by its own inertia. It is proportional to its mass, velocity and angular velocity.
The mass flow meter consists of oscillating tubes through which the measured medium flows. Due to the Coriolis force, the tubes are deflected differently at the inlet and outlet sides. This results in a measurable phase shift that is proportional to the amount of flow.
High-precision measurements of mass flow, density and temperature of both liquid and gaseous media can be performed simultaneously. Great resistance to the special properties of the various measurement media and other environmental influences characterize our flow meters.
