How To Install Vortex Flowmeter
Jun 20, 2017

Vortex flowmeter installation method for the vertical installation, the media from bottom to top through the flow meter. The flowmeter is installed on a vertical pipe with a flow direction from bottom to top.

1, vortex flowmeter can only one-way measurement, the installation of  attention to ensure that the flow direction of the flow meter and arrows  in the same direction.

2, vortex flowmeter installation for the vertical installation, the media from bottom to top through the flow meter. The flowmeter is installed on a vertical pipe with a flow direction from bottom to top.

3, the level of installation, the flowmeter must be installed in the  entire system of high pressure area, and to ensure that the  corresponding export pressure; do not install the highest point in the  pipeline, due to the highest point of gas accumulation, the pipeline is  not full, exports can not be directly vent.

4,  when measuring high temperature fluid, as far as possible the use of  vertical installation; if you have to install the level, please flow  meter part of the vertical down, or horizontal side equipment, to avoid  the temperature is too high; pay attention to the installation location  of air flow Or well ventilated.

5,  straight pipe requirements: at least to ensure that the flowmeter  before the 15 times the diameter, 5 times the flow meter diameter. Such  as the flow meter before the elbow, indentation, expansion and other  sources of interference, you need to ensure that the flow meter before  the 30-40 times the diameter, 6 times the flow meter diameter. The flowmeter should be installed upstream of the control valve, pressure or temperature sensor.

6, the installation should pay attention to the pipe diameter should  be slightly greater than or equal to the diameter of the instrument.

7, the use of seals, pay attention to the inner diameter of the seal  should be slightly greater than or equal to the diameter of the  instrument, the center of the seal in the center of the pipeline.

8, the cable inlet sealing instrument electrical connection, we must pay attention to the inlet hole seal. The  corresponding sealing interface (M20 Χ1.5; 1/2 "NPT; G1 / 2") must be  selected according to the meter cable entry model and installed  correctly and tightly. No seal joints, or install sloppy, fail to seal effect.
