Vortex flow meter is a kind of velocity flowmeter, also known as vortex flowmeter or Karman vortex flowmeter, which is a high-tech mechanical and electrical product integrating signal detection and microelectronics intelligent technology. It is mainly based on the Karman vortex street theory, and also uses piezoelectric crystals to detect the vortex frequency generated when the fluid passes through the triangular column in the pipeline, so that the flow rate of the fluid can be measured.
The sensor of the intelligent vortex flowmeter uses the induction element is not directly in contact with the measured medium, its performance is stable, high reliability, and there are no moving parts in the sensor, its structure is simple and firm, the vortex flowmeter is mainly used for the flow measurement of industrial pipeline medium fluid, such as gas, liquid, vapor, oil and other media. It is characterized by small pressure loss, large range, high accuracy, and is almost not affected by fluid density, pressure, temperature, viscosity and other parameters when measuring volume flow under working conditions. There are no moving mechanical parts, so the reliability is high and the instrument parameters can be stable for a long time. Vortex flowmeter adopts piezoelectric stress sensor, high reliability, analog standard signal, but also digital pulse signal output, easy to use with computer and other digital systems, is a relatively advanced, ideal flow meter.

Vortex flowmeter

Principle of vortex flow meter
When a triangular column type vortex generator is set in the fluid, regular vortices are alternately generated from both sides of the vortex generator. This vortex is called Karman vortex, and the vortices are arranged asymmetrically in the downstream of the vortex generator. The pulse frequency signal output by the vortex flowmeter VSF is not subject to the physical properties of the fluid
In other words, the instrument coefficient is only related to the shape and size of the vortex generator and the pipeline within a certain range of Reynolds number. However, as a flow meter in the material balance and energy measurement need to detect the mass flow, then the output signal of the flow meter should also monitor the volume flow and fluid density, fluid physical properties and components have a direct impact on the flow measurement.
In practical applications, often the maximum flow is far lower than the upper limit of the instrument, with the change of load, the minimum flow is often lower than the lower limit of the instrument, the instrument is not working in its best working section, in order to solve this problem, usually use in the measurement at the measurement to improve the flow rate, and choose a smaller diameter of the instrument to facilitate the measurement of the instrument. However, this reducing method must be rectified in a straight pipe section with a length of more than 15D between the reducing pipe and the instrument, which makes processing and installation inconvenient. Our company developed a profile shape of circular diameter rectifier, with multiple functions of rectification, increasing flow rate and changing flow rate distribution, its structure size is small, only 1/3 of the inner diameter of the process pipe, and the vortex flowmeter as one, not only do not need to add another straight pipe section, but also reduce the requirements of the process pipe straight pipe section, installation is very convenient. The temperature compensated vortex flowmeter also has a temperature sensor, which can directly measure the temperature of saturated steam and calculate the pressure, so as to display the mass flow rate of saturated steam. Temperature and pressure compensation body with temperature and pressure sensor for gas flow measurement can directly measure the temperature and pressure of the gas medium, so as to display the standard volume flow of the gas.
