Flow Meter Takes Difficulty out of Measuring

July 12, 2017
OMEGA Engineering Inc. offers a rugged meter that optimizes efficiency with its measurement of mass fluids.

Designed to meet the challenges of measuring mass fluids and gases that can be corrosive or difficult to measure, the FMC-5000 Series of Coriolis Flow Meters optimize plant efficiency over a wide flow range from this single meter, with high accuracy and simple installation. The FMC-5000 is a rugged meter with no moving parts resulting in minimal maintenance requirements.


Under the alternating current effect, the electromagnetic coils mounted on the measuring tube will make two parallel measuring tubes vibrate at a certain fixed frequency. Whenever mass flows through the measuring tubes, Coriolis force is generated, causing a “bending” or “deflection” in the top of the tubes. This deflection is sensed as a phase shift between two electronic pick-ups mounted on the tubes and the degree of phase shift is directly proportional to the mass flow within the tubes.


For use with flow measurements and custody transfer in many industries such as petroleum, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, food and dairy, and more.
