Reliable flow meters for almost any applications
PanaFlow Vortex Flow Meter
Vortex flow meters are widely used because they are reliable, accurate and as a standard for steam applications are most frequently chosen by customers due to their ease of installation and low maintenance costs. Where other forms of meter technology struggle in the difficult high-pressure and high-temperature environments, the vortex meter offers a wide range and a low pressure drop, making it a top contender among flow professionals.
Vrtex meters from Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, include both inline and insertion modes, allowing installation for almost any challenging application, including:
- Hot-tap steam
- Large lines
- Areas of low pressure
Our PanaFlow vortex meters offer a multivariable design that contains shedding velocity with RTD temperature sensors and a solid-state pressure transducer for measuring mass flow rate of steam, gases and liquids. The accuracy of these meters enables velocity, temperature and pressure to be measured at the same location.
The PanaFlow MV80 is a cost effective and accurate inline vortex flow meter that saves you time and costs by measuring flow, temperature, pressure, density, energy and mass in a single meter, with no need to recalibrate for most gases, liquids and steam.
The PanaFlow MV82 insertion mass flow meter is a multivariable vortex flow meter for measuring volumetric flow, temperature, pressure, density and mass flow. It offers an advanced design and digital signal processing to isolate vibration. This meter is accurate, reliable and cost effective for measuring any process flow.
The PanaFlow MV84 inline vortex flow meter measures velocity, temperature and pressure at the same location in a single meter, providing a more accurate measurement process. This meter is ideal for high temperature and high velocity steam and uses remote monitoring to integrate with DCS, HART ® and BACnet®.
