Steam Flowmeter Saves Space

Designed to deliver accurate steam flow measurement in a space-saving design, the V-Cone Steam Flow Meter is well-suited for campus district energy facilities, and is said to eliminate many of the common equipment layout problems associated with steam process lines connecting boilers with HVAC and electric power co-generation systems.

The V-Cone’s self-conditioning flow design can eliminate most of the straight-pipe requirements typically needed with many flow meter technologies by controlling swirl and other flow disturbances in the pipe that affect measurement accuracy, says the vendor. The V-Cone is accurate to +0.5%, with a repeatability of +0.1%, and requires only 0-3 pipe straight diameters upstream and 0-1 diameters downstream from the meter. Nearly all other types of flow meters require as many as 10 pipe straight diameters upstream and 5 pipe diameters downstream from the meter, says the vendor. Operating over a wide flow range, the V-Cone supports line sizes from 0.5 to 120 inches.
