EC: VLM10 Inline Vortex Mass Flowmeter
Process Control - Process sensors: The VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter measures mass, volumetric, and energy flows on steam, liquid, and gas applications in sizes 1 inch to 12 inch. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention.
The VLM10 combines an inline vortex meter, a built in flow computer and an integral temperature sensor giving users an elegant all in one solution for their metering needs. The VLM10 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ±1.5% of range over a wide 20:1 flow range. The fully welded, no gasket design, insures safe measurement of steam and allows the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first. The built in web server allows customers to monitor flow and monitor meter health through the internet. Digital communications delivers information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs. The VLM10 is available in a wide range of connections and pressure ranges.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
