Sierra Improves Its Vortex Mass Flowmeter

Sierra Improves Its Ability to Measure Steam in Large Pipes

MONTEREY, CA – August 20, 2007 -- Sierra Instruments announces the availability of its new improved Innova-Mass ® Model 241S Insertion Multiparameter Flowmeter.

The Innova-Mass® Model 241S Insertion Multiparameter Flowmeter is a unique solution for mass flow of gases and steam in large pipes. This meter features innovative benefits to customers including a patented low mass sensor and sophisticated digital signal processing (DSP). The low mass sensor makes the meter very sensitive to the vortices formed and less sensitive to heavy vibration, while the DSP conditions and filters the signal.

The Model 241S measures three process variables (velocity, temperature, and pressure- VTP) through one process connection. This allows for the real-time calculation of true mass flow. Since everything is calibrated together, system accuracy is very high. Because VTP is directly measured, the Reynolds number can be dynamically calculated and the flow profile effects in large pipes calculated in real time. This allows for reliable measurements in large pipes (up to 72 inches) where using an in line air flow meter would be cost prohibitive.

Even with all the above powerful abilities, the Innova-Mass® is loop-powered, with power in, programmable four to 20 mA out and a superimposed HART signal riding on the same two wires.

Sierra is one of the most trusted manufacturers of high performance flow meters and controllers today. By combining superior product quality with a talented global support network of flow experts in 47 countries, Sierra consistently delivers quality flow measurement solutions for each customer.

Our Thermal Mass, Transit-Time Ultrasonic, Vortex Shedding and Multivariable instruments are available in both standard and customized versions for applications in laboratory, industrial and hazardous environments. Sierra’s flow measurement technologies precisely measure or control very low flows of gas down to less than 1 sccm full scale as well as extremely high flows of gas, liquid, and steam. With rugged product design, cutting-edge innovation, and a worldwide team of flow experts, experience why customers around the globe rely on Sierra.
