Vortex Flowmeters

The FV100 series is made up of in-line flowmeters that use the vortex shedding measuring principle. As the fluid strikes a bluff body, imparting alternating vortices downstream of the bluff, it creates a vibration on a sensor body containing a piezoelectric crystal.

The frequency of the sensor is proportional to the velocity of the fluid and is amplified and converted to a 4-20mA output signal. A vortex technology meter has no moving parts to jam and its bright LED displays flow in either liters or gallons. It can measure flow in either direction and can be used with non-viscous, clean or dirty water-like liquids. Pricing starts at $402.
