Multivariable and Volumetric Flow Meters

InnovaMass® Featuring Vortex Flow Technology

Vortex is the ideal flow technology for gas, liquid and steam measurement. Available in both inline and insertion versions, Sierra's multivariable InnovaMass vortex flow meter measures up to five process variables with one process connection: volumetric flow rate, mass flow, density, pressure, and temperature. You get true mass flow by compensating for temperature and pressure variations, which is ideal for highly accurate steam flow measurement. Maximize your steam productivity and lower your cost of ownership. Our vortex flow meters are also ideal for volumetric flow of water.

Size Your Multivariable Vortex Flow Meter

For liquid flow applications such as influent and effluent water measurements, fuel flow, and large water pipes in plants and facilities, our economical InnovaMass vortex flow sensors offer customers accurate volumetric flow rates, +/- 1.0% of reading over a 30:1 range. The unique InnovaMass insertion volumetric flowmeter provides easy, single-point installation, as well as hot tap and a hot tap retractor.

Did You Know? Sierra was the first to design and introduce a multivariable vortex meter to the world, with the introduction of InnovaMass 240S/241S "S-Series" vortex flow meters to the market in the late 1990s. Today, these multivariable and volumetric flowmeters are an industry standard.

It Has Apps!

Sierra's latest generation flagship InnovaMass iSeries is the first vortex meter to have useful apps that empower the end user in new ways.

Apps Available:

  • ValidCal Diagnostics™ for field calibration verification and meter health checks
  • FlowPro vastly improves low flow measurement accuracy
  • MeterTuning cancels noise, improves accuracy
  • Dial-A-Pipe allows you to quickly change pipe sizes in the field
  • Dial-A-Fluid measures a variety of fluids whenever you choose
  • qMix™ makes/measures custom mixtures

Boiler MACT Certified

The InnovaMass 240i/241i is also ideal for compliance for Boiler MACT regulations for steam outlet and inlet feed water measurements for area source boilers (40 CFR 63, subpart JJJJJJ) and for major source boilers (40 CFR 63, subpart DDDDD). Learn More.

Reduced Cost of Ownership: Whether you need volumetric flow rates or mass flow rates, the five high accuracy measurements available from a single compact mass flow rate and volumetric flow rate flowmeter reduce your total cost-of-ownership. Lower initial cost, less complex installation, and reduced maintenance costs contributed to significant overall savings.

The completely redesigned InnovaMass iSeries follows our tradition of innovation forged by products like QuadraTherm 640i and 780i mass flow meters.
