ABB's Measurement Products' business announces the CoriolisMaster FCB330 and FCB350 compact Coriolis mass flowmeters for measuring gases and liquids. The FCB330 and FCB350 are the new members of the CoriolisMaster family of direct mass flow measurement products. They provide accurate measurements of multiple variables with a single, compact device: flow (mass and volume, with accuracies to 0.1%), density, concentration, and temperature. The new double tube design has no moving parts and requires no special up- or downstream piping, saving more than 40% in length. This minimizes maintenance and installation space, and allows retrofitting of older flowmeters in tight places where Coriolis meters couldn't be used in the past. The design also uses wider inner tube diameters, producing lower pressure drops and higher capacities. This saves up to 25% pump power, making the new mass flowmeter the better alternative to mechanical meters and their requisite filters that can cause pressure drops and blocked pipes.
The compact FCB330 and FCB350 are designed for a variety of flow measurement applications in oil and gas, chemical, power, and food and beverage industries. The meter features an optimized sensor with superior zero point and temperature stability. A sturdy design and advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology allows detection of low flow signals and minimizes the effects of pipeline vibration and interference. The meter is suitable for self-draining so no measuring media residues remain inside. An easy-to-use, three-button menu and text display reduce installation and training time. The display indicates mass or volume flow rate, percent maximum flow, flow rates in bar graph form, temperature, density and forward or reverse totalization. Integrated DensiMass software simplifies computations, including direct Brix measurements and Net-Oil or temperature-standardized concentration calculations on large application data repositories.
