Coriolis mass flow meters are used in a wide variety of applications and markets. A proven technology mostly used in high flow applications, mass flow meters and controllers now allow for the measurement and control of fluids on the lower side of the flow bracket.
With Brooks Instruments’ miniaturized mass flow controllers, it is now possible to directly control the flow rate without having to compensate for changing fluid properties. Yielding unparalleled performance, with a wide variety of options, the Brooks Instruments’ miniaturized mass flow controllers will meet the very precise needs of your application.
The Tricor precision mass flow meters are offered with a wide range of certifications and approval for use within classified areas. They also provide unrivaled performance in low flow applications.
Tricor offers 3 lines:
CLASSIC Series is the “standard” line with lower cost and performance specs for broader market appeal.
PRO Series is the “advanced” line with greater performance, diagnostics and connectivity options, as well as a DSP transmitter.
SPECIALTY Series are designed for high pressure applications.
Theory of operation:
Using the Coriolis effect that causes a laterally vibrating tube to distort, a direct measurement of mass flow can be obtained in a coriolis flow meter. Furthermore, a direct measure of the density of the fluid is obtained. Coriolis measurement can be very accurate irrespective of the type of gas or liquid that is measured; the same measurement tube can be used for hydrogen gas and bitumen without recalibration
Coriolis flow meters can be used for the measurement of natural gas flow.
