The Honeywell Versaflow Vortex Shedding flowmeter offers an accurate and stable flowmeter technology for industrial process control and measurement in steam and compressed airflow applications. Honeywell’s unique vortex shedding Versaflow flowmeter allows both integrated pressure and temperature compensation in 2-wire technology. The Honeywell Versaflow Vortex Flow Meter provides reliable measurement of operating, standard volumetric and mass flow of conductive and non-conductive liquids, gases and vapors, even with fluctuating pressures and temperatures.
Vortex Flowmeter Operational principal…
The Honeywell VersaFlow Vortex Shedding flow meter detects the vortices that are created by a process medium going past a bluff body. The frequency of these vortices can be equated into flow velocity, which, in turn, is used to calculate volumetric flow rate. The integral temperature sensor (standard in all Honeywell Vortex shedding flowmeters) is used in saturated steam service to determine the operating conditions and specific volume of the steam being measured. The steam table incorporated into the electronics then calculates the flow or energy of the steam flowing through the meter. The optional pressure sensor can be used for similar calculations for gasses and superheated steam. Intelligent Signal Processing (ISP) provides stable readings, free of external influences.
Honeywell Versaflow Vortex shedding flowmeter is available in 2 mounting options, standard flange mount and also compact sandwich mount. For either mounting application, Fluidic are able to offer a standard temperature only compensation, temperature and pressure compensation or temperature and pressure compensation with shut-off valve to allow the pressure sensor to be exchanged without interrupting the process. What is more, the pressure sensor can be shut off for the purpose of pressure or leak testing of the pipeline. Using the built-in two-way valve, the pressure sensor can also be calibrated and tested at a later time. Additionally, the Honeywell Versaflow vortex shedding flowmeter is optionally available as a dual version. This is a genuine redundant system with two independent sensors and two converters. This provides twofold functional reliability and availability of the measurement. This variant is optimally suited for measurements in multiproduct pipelines. In such pipelines, two different products are moved through one after the other. Here one converter can be programmed for one product, and the other converter for the other product.
