Yokogawa Electric releases new mass flowmeters

Yokogawa Electric Corp., a Japanese electrical engineering company, has announced the global release of a new portfolio of four-wire Coriolis mass flowmeters called Rotomass Total Insight.

This new Coriolis mass flowmeter product platform was developed based on a ‘Total Insight’ concept that seeks to optimise operations and reduce maintenance costs at all phases of the product lifecycle.

Of the two main types of flowmeters that are in use today - the volume flowmeter and the mass flowmeter - the latter is generally more accurate as its measurements are less susceptible to variations in temperature and pressure, Yokogawa said in a statement.

Coriolis mass flowmeters are versatile and highly accurate instruments whose utility extends beyond mass flow, inline density, and temperature measurement.

They have evolved into multi-functional devices that can measure concentrations, function as net oil computers (NOC), and even measure heat transport, the company said.

"Our customers expect first-class performance from these instruments in demanding process control applications that involve liquids with high viscosity, entrained gas, and two-phase flows," it added.
