V-Master vortex-shredding flowmeter can measure liquid, gas, and steam, and measures process flow by detecting the frequency at which vortices are alternatively shed from a bluff body within the unit. The vortices create a differential force across a sensor wing, flexing it at a frequency proportional to the flow rate. To ensure maximum safety, the flowmeter features fully welded construction in the shredder bar and sensor area. This type of construction makes the unit as strong and safe as a standard pipe of the same wall thickness.
