New Vortex Flowmeter Offers Simultaneous Measurement

Krohne, Inc. introduces the new dual-version of its OPTISWIRL 4070 variable area flowmeter, an instrument with two separate measurement valves and converters, providing accuracy in pipeline applications that require the simultaneous measurement of two different substances.

The OPTISWIRL 4070 C delivers measurements of standard volumetric and mass flow of conductive and non-conductive liquids, gases and vapors, even in applications that are prone to pressure and temperature fluctuations.

OPTISWIRL 4070 C features a non-wearing, fully welded stainless steel structure that is resistant to corrosion, high pressures and high temperatures according to the Company. The OPTISWIRL 4070 C is also designed for process reliability, featuring an Intelligent Signal Processing System (ISP) that allows for stable flow readings while eliminating external perturbations.

In addition to its vortex sensor structure, the OPTISWIRL 4070 C includes a built in temperature transducer and an optional pressure sensor with available isolation valve within its plug and play design, PACTWARE diagnostics and configuration software with DTM are included at no extra cost.

The OPTISWIRL 4070 C is designed for an assortment of applications in industry environments, such as vapor and saturated steam measurement, steam boiler monitoring, compressor control or compressed air systems monitoring. The meter can also be used for measurement of industrial gases, burner consumption measurement, and SIP or CIP processes in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

The OPTISWIRL 4070 will be showcased at WEFTEC 2007 in San Diego, CA, October 13-17, at the San Diego Convention Center, in booth #2843.
