Unlike existing technologies that calculate based on weight, speed, belt tension, or volume, the CentriFlow®
Meter actually measures flowable solids in a process. This unique measurement ability allows the CentriFlow®
Meter to have 0.25% accuracy full scale on virtually all flowable solids, significantly improving the industry standard.
Meter is not affected by changes in product elasticity, density, shape or friction. Fluctuations in flow rate don’t impact it’s accuracy. The linearity of the zero friction formula gives the CentriFlow®
Meter its ability to measure at various densities and turndown ratios while maintaining near perfect accuracy.
Solid Construction/Low Maintenance
Sturdy high-grade aluminum construction with stainless steel flow paths makes the CentriFlow®
Meter a very low maintenance instrument. It rarely requires re-calibration because there no moving parts. There are no belts or drives. Plus, the electronics are located outside the process stream and are not subject to vibration from the manufacturing process.
Plant Efficient Configurations
Designed to fit into just about any existing process with minimal changes, the CentriFlow®
Meter is available in two configurations. The Type I Configuration is designed to attach to the end of an existing horizontal feedind device. The Type II Configuration is designed for an in-line vertical application.
Compared to alternative devices, the CentriFlow®
Meter is compact and extremely efficient in its space requirements, and it doesn’t require floor mounting.
Meter maintains its accuracy within a maximum 20 to 1 turndown capability based on volumetric capacity. The meter’s unique design enables it to identify and cancel the friction component of the mass flow. The resulting signal is flow = mass rate, which is linear. The linearity allows the meter to work, typically, at 0.25% accuracy full scale. This means it is not affected by the wide variances typical to process flow.
Continuous Measurement for Continuous Improvement
Meter's ability to provide accurate, real-time, continuous flow measurement allows you to optimize your process like never before. The ability to measure gives you the control to manage.
