What does a Coriolis meter do?

What does a Coriolis meter do?

Coriolis meters are true mass meters that measure the mass rate of flow directly, as opposed to measuring volume flow. Since mass does not change, the meter is linear without having to be adjusted for variations in liquid properties.

What is liquid flow meter?

A liquid flow meter is a device used to measure the volumetric, mass, nonlinear and linear flow rate of a liquid. The flow rate is calculated by measuring the liquid’s velocity. The type selected will depend on the application and type of liquid.

How does a Coriolis meter measure temperature?

A pair of electromagnetic sensors (called pickoff sensors) detects the vibrations at points on each side of the drive unit. Coriolis meters eliminate the need to measure and correct for pressure, temperature, and density fluctuations to determine mass flowrate.

How much is a Coriolis meter?

The first barrier to Coriolis world domination can be summed up in a single word: price. A one-inch line magnetic flow meter and transmitter, for example, can be had for $3,000 or less. A comparably sized Coriolis meter can run upwards of $9,000 or more.

For what purpose is the meter used?

A meter is a metric unit of length used worldwide by scientists to measure lengths and distances between objects.

How does Coriolis measure viscosity?

Viscosity is measured by determining the pressure drop through the mass flowmeter. The viscosity of the flowing medium is directly proportional to the ratio of pressure drop and volumetric flow rate. Coriolis flowmeters measure the rotational force exerted by fluids flowing through an oscillating measurement tube.

How do you clean a Coriolis meter?


  1. A safe, non-corrosive cleaning solution is applied to break up the materials that coagulate within the meter.
  2. The Coriolis is pressure-washed.
  3. The Coriolis tubing is inspected using a digital microscope to ensure all obstructions are removed.

What is Coriolis force example?

Cyclones are an example of the influence of the Coriolis effect. The Coriolis effect also helps shape regular wind patterns. For example, warm air near the Equator flows toward the poles. In the Northern Hemisphere, these warm air currents are deflected to the right, or east, as they move northward.
