Coriolis Measuring Principle

Direct Measurement
•  = Phase shift
• m = Mass flow
• fR = Resonance frequency
 ~ m
•  = Density
fR ~ 
•  = Resistance (PT1000)
 ~ T • T = Temperature

Coriolis_Promass

Overview of calculated values

• V = Volume flow
V = m/

• VN = Standard volume flow = Volume flow at fixed p and T

VN = m/N (note: N is a fixed value for each fluid)

• c = Concentration
Concentration can be calculated from density
• μ,η = Viscosity
Viscosity can be calculated from oscillation damping. Viscosity
measurement is only available with the Promass 83I.

Coriolis_Promass

Why Measure Mass

• Temperature / Pressure

• Volume 1  Volume 2

• Mass 1 = Mass 2

Mass 1 Mass 2
Volume 1 Volume 2

Coriolis_Promass

V = Volume flow
r = Density

m = Mass flow

Installation Guidelines

• Coriolis flowmeters DO NOT require

straight inlet or outlet runs
• Elbow, valves or pumps upstream do
not affect the performance of coriolis

Full pipe
• Best installation: In vertical pipeline
with flow streaming upwards
• Good alternative: Horizontal
orientation on a low point in a
pipeline

Slide 11 24/03/2013 SW Lim

Coriolis_Promass

Installation Guideline

• Consider the following restriction:

• Avoid installation at the highest
point of a pipeline.
• Avoid installation directly upstream
of a free pipe outlet in a vertical
pipeline.

• If installation before a free pipe

outlet is inevitable:
• Decrease nominal outlet diameter
(Pipe restrictor or an orifice plate).
• Consult operating manual for
recommended orifice sizes.

Installation Guidelines

Entrained gas

Entrained solids

With curved measuring tubes and horizontal installation:

• Entrained solids in liquids: Do not install the curve pointing
downwards. (Risk of accumulating solids)
• Entrained gas in liquids: Do not install the curve pointing upwards.
(Risk of accumulating gas)

1. Low flow limitation – Reynolds number

• Vortex performs best at Re> 20,000
• Increase of viscosity due to low process temperature  lower Re number
• Small flow velocity  lower Re number

2. Low flow limitation – density/velocity

• Higher density and velocity creates stronger signal

If no corrosion and operating
at velocity's that could cause
erosion (>50m/sec for abrasion

What is steam?

Example:
• Heating water from 20°C (A) to 100°C (B) requires 4.2kJ/kg of
energy (hf)
• Converting water (B) to steam (C) at 100°C and 1.013 bar abs
requires 2255kJ/kg of energy (hfg)
• Total enthalpy from (A) to (C)
= hf + hfg
= 2259.2 kJ/kg
Slide 65 24/03/2013 Seou Wei

The Dryness of Steam (x)

• x=0; water is fully
saturated
• x=1; Dry saturated
steam
• x=0.8 ; 80% mass of the
water is in gaseous state
and 20% is in liquid
state

Example:
• If dryness fraction, x = 0.8
• Actual total enthalpy from (A) to (C)
= hf + hfg . x
= 4.2 kJ/kg + (2255kJ/kg . 0.8)
= 1812.4 kJ/kg

• The Dualsens model has one single

meter body with only one bluff body but
two individual sensors and transmitters

• The model is used in applications where

redundancy of a measuring point is
required
• When a plant/process can’t be shut
down in case of a failure (e.g. boiler
mains)
• When a critical process variable needs
crosschecking with a second value

Vortex - Prowirl

• Because of the technological advantages of Prowirl most of its

applications can be found in steam metering

• Temperature shocks and water hammer at startup require an extremely

robust flow meter such as Prowirl

• The Prowirl measures the volumetric flowrate of steam accurate and

independently of process conditions

Vortex – Prowirl 200

Vortex - Prowirl

What type of steam is measured?

1. Saturated steam  >85% of Vortex steam applications
• In most industries used for heating and to be added to processes
• Density is defined by either pressure OR temperature
• Process conditions usually 4…15 bar /145…200°C
• Saturated steam sometimes becomes slightly overheated. This leads to
small errors if not considered

2. Superheated steam  Normally measured with a Dp solution

• Used for high energy flow i.e. power generation
• To define density pressure AND temperature is needed
• Process conditions often >300°C and pressure >80 bar

Vortex - Prowirl

Limitations in Vortex Steam Applications

1. Nominal Bore
• In power generation and very large main line after the boiler sizes >NB
300 are installed
• Diameters larger NB150 versions in general are quite expensive compared
with other technologies

2. Hi Pressure
• High pressure versions of Prowirl cover up to PN250 but are limited to
max. NB150
• High pressure versions are generally more expensive then dP solutions for
this applications

3. Hi Temperature
• Whilst saturated steam applications are well below 400°C superheated
steam is occasionally even higher in temperature

Preferred Installation of a Flowmeter

• It is ideal to install a flowmeter into a vertical pipe with sufficient
straight length up-stream because…
• …the flowmeter is either full or completely empty
• …if there is no flow solids will sink and air will rise away from the
flowmeter

Slide 106 24/03/2013 SW Lim

Make sure the EPD is at the top of pipe

Problem:
• The empty pipe detection electrode must be at the highest point of a
horizontally installed EMF to work properly
Solution:
• Installed in a horizontal pipe the EMF transmitter/terminal housing must
be located on top of the pipe
In applications where a
partly filled pipe is not

Ultrasonic Flow Measuring Principle

t = time differential
Q= volume flow

t ~ Q

The time of the ultrasonic signal flow against the flow is slower than
the signal with the flow. This results in a signal run time difference,
which is proportional to the flow rate.

General Rule
Use Prosonic Flow 92F when a magmeter is needed but the liquid is
non-conductive!

• …when a magmeters can’t operate because of low conductivity!

• …when a vortex meter is not “good” enough! (accuracy, not enough
straight inlet, measuring range, low flow)
• …when the pressure loss of a coriolis meter is too high!
• …when getting the job done doesn’t require a coriolis meter!

• Rate of gas as input into engines, boilers or for diversion to storage
• Totalization of biogas diverted to flare
• Totalization of biogas production for accounting purposes

The first step to find the solution

• The first step in finding a solution for a flow metering point is finding
the best suitable measuring technology
• The selection is based on the requirements of the measuring point
e.g.:
• Expected accuracy
• Acceptable pressure loss
• Required turn-down
• Massflow, direct or calculated
• Installation situation
• Etc.

FG050BPEC

For dimensioning of pipe diameter it is good engineering practice to follow the

following recommendations:

Fluid type Velocity @ max. flow

Liquids (low viscosity) 2...3 m/s
Gas 15…30 m/s
Steam 25…45 m/s

• APPLICATOR Sizing applies this rules  Measuring principle depending

• If large turn-down is required Increased max. velocity is applied
• Often the ideal flowmeter DN is smaller then the pipe DN to optimize accuracy

If the proposed flowmeter DN is larger then the

pipe DN there is most likely something wrong
 Check plausibility of engineering units

FG050BPEC

Max. Flow Velocity – Special Cases

For certain fluids max. velocities exist for safety reasons, to protect the
measured product from damage/ quality loss, etc. Here a few examples:

• Oxygen gas
• There are regulations regarding max. permitted gas flow velocity in
various PIPE MATERIALS

• Slurries (Minerals in liquid)

• Slurries must be conveyed at MIN. velocities to avoid settling that would
lead to pipe blockage. But: High velocity = High abrasion!!

• Milk, Blood and similar

• Sensitive liquid products should be conveyed with “reasonable” velocity 
Customer will/should provide guidance

FG050BPEC

Accuracy at minimum flow rate

vs.
Pressure loss at maximum flow rate

• For a reliable sizing the following information must be available:

• The measured fluid
• Flowmeter model to be sized
• Minimum and maximum flow rate to be measured
• The process condition (min. and max. pressure / temperature)
• Observe possible velocity limitations

When to use Prosonic Flow 92F:

General Rule
Use Prosonic Flow 92F when a magmeter is needed but the liquid is
non-conductive!

• …when a magmeters can’t operate because of low conductivity!

• …when a vortex meter is not “good” enough! (accuracy, not enough
straight inlet, measuring range, low flow)
• …when the pressure loss of a coriolis meter is too high!
• …when getting the job done doesn’t require a coriolis meter!
