ABB has released information in its Vortex (FV4000) and Swirl (FS4000) flowmeters for measuring flow rates of liquid, gas, and steam. The company claims that both flowmeter types offer high accuracy and wide rangeability, as well as an integrated temperature sensor for mass flow measurement of saturated steam. The FS4000 swirl flowmeters save up to 80% of installation space because of short upstream and downstream straight-pipe requirements. The robust FV4000 vortex flowmeters come in flange-mount and wafer-type (flangeless) designs, offering cost-saving installation.
