Badger Meter announces new mass flowmeter
Badger Meter has announced the addition of a new product to its portfolio, the RCT1000 Coriolis mass flowmeter.
According to a press release from the company, the RCT1000 is ‘especially suited’ to the precise measurement of high viscosity fluids, aggressive media and contaminated fluids, as well as high density gases. Badger Meter states that these measurements can be obtained while maintaining a wide turndown ratio.
Possible applications for the new mass flowmeters include filling or dosing oils, solvents and chemicals, as well as measuring adhesives or binding materials, coatings and hardeners, dyes, vitamins and other additives.
A lack of internal moving parts means the RCT1000 experiences little to no mechanical wear, lengthening its operational life expectancy. Boasting flexible integration options, the new mass flowmeters are capable of controlling equipment such as valves and pumps with PID and batch control signals. The transmitter includes a user-lock feature which prevents accidental activation, while a local LCD display has optical buttons which allow the operator to navigate the display without opening the enclosure.
Network communications options for the model include: EtherNet/IP, 4-20mA HART, Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU. The RCT1000 meters feature mass flow accuracy of -/+ 0.1% with a pressure range up to 2150 PSI (148 bar) and options for use in hazardous areas.
