New V2 System Flow Meter Delivers High Accuracy For Industrial Water & Wastewater

May 2, 2006

coWith its advanced differential pressure flow technology, the new V2 SystemÔ Flow Meter from McCrometer features built-in flow conditioning for superior accuracy and requires minimum upstream/downstream straight-run piping when installed. The V2 System Flow Meter is the ideal new or retrofit flow meter solution in a wide range of industrial process or plant water and wastewater applications.

The V2 System shines in line sizes from 4 to 18 inches, wherever irregular or crowded piping and equipment conditions make other flow technologies impractical or unworkable due to the complex, costly construction needed to meet their longer straight-run piping requirements. It is easy to install, requires virtually no maintenance and features a long-life for a low life-cycle cost.

The V2 System comes pre-packaged and ready to install with a new built-in 3-way valve that isolates the transmitter from the process fluid flow for easy maintenance without shutting down the pipeline. It arrives from the factory wet-flow calibrated, eliminating many of the common headaches that arise when adding a flow meter to any existing flow installation. The V2 System Flow Meter accurately measures flow over a wide flow range from 40 to 7500 gallons per minute, depending on the line size.

The V2 System’s cone actually conditions fluid flow to provide a stable flow profile that increases accuracy. The V2’s design features a centrally-located cone inside a tube. The cone interacts with the fluid flow and reshapes the velocity profile to create a lower pressure region immediately downstream.

The cone’s central position in the line optimizes the velocity of the liquid flow at the point of measurement. The result is a highly stable flow profile for measurement accuracy from ±1% with ±0.1% repeatability over a wide flow range of 10:1. All of this is possible with a minimal straight pipe run of 0 to 3 diameters upstream and 0 to 1 diameters downstream from the flow meter.

In addition to excellent accuracy and repeatability over a broad range, the V2 differential pressure flow meter is suitable for a variety of rugged industrial process and plant applications, including plant water wells, plant pump stations, HVAC system chilled water, steam systems, hydro-electric power generation, reclaimed water and treated water effluent. The V-Cone’s rugged no-moving parts design is compatible with high temperature, dirty and abrasive environments that are common in many industrial processes and plants.
