Vortex Flow Meter Configurator

Start configuring the exact vortex flow meter for your application. This easy to use tool leads you through the process and recommends the best instrument for your flow application. After you size and select the product, you will get a sizing datasheet and have the choice to email the product sizing datasheet directly to Sierra for processing, share the information via email with a co-worker, or even print the information as a PDF.

I Require S-Series

Are you sure you do not want Sierra's latest generation InnovaMass iSeries vortex flow meter? The iSeries is our best performance vortex flow meter featuring field adjustability, diagnostics, and a suite of useful apps to improve your productivity.

I Require Loop Power

We are sorry for the inconvenience; the InnovaMass iSeries does not support loop power. As a result, we recommend our S-Series vortex flow meters to fill your requirements.

Please consider the following before you choose the S-Series over our latest generation iSeries:

  • The iSeries may not have loop power, but it does have three configurable analog outputs at no extra charge.
  • HART is available with the iSeries.
  • The iSeries is our best performance vortex flow meter featuring field adjustability, diagnostics, and a suite of useful apps to improve your productivity.

Default Unit of Measurement

The InnovaMass Sizing Tool will display calculated output in the units specified below.
