New vortex flow meter from Emerson improves reliability for utility applications

image-1612-rosemount8600-dataEmerson Automation Solutions expands its vortex flow meter portfolio with the addition of the Rosemount® 8600 Utility Vortex Flow Meter, designed specifically for utility applications. Its application-specific design reduces installation costs, provides accurate and reliable flow measurement, and extends vortex technology into a wider range of applications.
The Rosemount 8600 Utility Vortex delivers the benefits of vortex technology by minimizing potential leak points and eliminating impulse lines – improving reliability and reducing installed cost. With no moving parts to repair or maintain, the Rosemount 8600 reduces maintenance and downtime.
For saturated steam applications, a multivariable measurement option provides temperature compensated mass flow output directly from the meter. Unlike traditional multivariable vortex designs, the Rosemount 8600 Utility Vortex with the multivariable option uses an isolated temperature sensor. This allows the temperature sensor to be verified or replaced without breaking the process seal. Operator safety is enhanced by limiting personnel exposure to process conditions and throughput is maximized by eliminating the need to shut down the process to maintain the temperature sensor.
The Rosemount 8600 is part of the broadest portfolio of vortex flow meters designed for a variety of process and utility applications. From the most aggressive flows, to clean fluid applications, Emerson offers a range of tailored vortex solutions to meet any requirement.
