Intelligent vortex precession flowmeter
ZW series - LUXIntelligent vortex precession flowmeterA new type of gas flow meter has the domestic advanced level.Set the flowmeter flow, temperature, pressure testing function can be in the work of the squeezing factor of temperature, pressure, automatic compensation, as well as local display in the measurement signal, can also be on-demand far eastone, have no moving parts, so for the average measurement is no mechanical wear. Measuring parameters such as flow, pressure and temperature can be reduced to read directly from the header and don't have to convert;Realize the mechanical and electrical integration, daily without artificial unattended measurement process, process installation conditions are not demanding.
Second, the working principle:
ZW - LUX series intelligent vortex precession flowmeter is when a fluid through a helical vane vortex generator, composed of fluid is forced to around the dramatic rotating body axis, the formation of vortex.When fluid into the diffuser, vortex flow under the effect of reflux, began as a secondary rotation, form the gyro type vortex precession phenomenon.The precession frequency is proportional to the flow size, not influenced by the physical properties and fluid density.Detecting element quadratic spin precession frequency measured fluid, knew the traffic.And in a relatively wide flow rate range for good linearity.Flowmeter formula is: K = f/q
Type: K - l/m&sup 3 flow meter coefficient
F - vortex frequency Hz
Q - volume flow m&sup 3;/ s
The instrument coefficient of flow meter in certain structural parameters and the specified within the scope of Reynolds number and the fluid temperature, pressure, composition and physical properties (density, viscosity) has nothing to do.
ZW - LUX series intelligent vortex precession flowmeter adopting new micro processing technology, has the function of strong, wide flow rate range, simple operation and maintenance, and convenient to install and use etc, and the main technical indexes reach the advanced level of the same products abroad.It is widely used in petroleum, chemical industry, electric power, metallurgy, coal, etc all kinds of gas measurement.

Nine, install and use notice:
Click the flow mark 1, sensors can be tilted in vertical, horizontal, or any location on the installation;
2, when the pipeline vibration source is longer or distance is relatively close, support should be installed at upstream or downstream of flowmeter, in order to eliminate the influence of the pipeline vibration;
3, sensor installation location should have enough space, so that the flow meter inspection and maintenance, and should meet the environmental requirements of flowmeter;
4, should avoid the disturbance of external magnetic field;
5, when used in outdoor installation, should have cover, avoid the strong sunlight and rain erosion, affect the service life of the instrument;
6, when the pipeline pressure testing, should pay attention to the configured intelligent flowmeter pressure pressure sensor measuring range, in order to avoid over-voltage damage pressure sensor.
Installed 7, should pay attention to stress, the effect of upstream and downstream piping flow meter should be coaxial, otherwise it will produce shear stress.The location of the installation flowmeter should consider the thickness of the sealing gasket, or install a elastic expansion joints in the downstream side.
Should be clear before 8, installation flow meter of the pipeline welding slag and other sundry.
9 and put into operation, should slowly open flowmeter, downstream of the valve, in order to avoid air flow is too sharp and blunt bad on the moment.
10, when the meter requires signal remote transmission, electric performance indicators should be in strict accordance with the "" request access external power (8 ~ 24 VDC), it is strictly prohibited in the direct access to 220 vac or 380 vac signal output power;

Twelve, designing order selection guidelines:
1, instrument selection, as far as possible not to use the work flow in the lower limit value, so the meter diameter should be as small as possible, in order to obtain a larger flow rate and flow range.
2, the flowmeter should be used in the technical parameters of medium pressure and temperature range.Don't deliberately choose the high pressure level and ultra-high temperature instrument, should be selected according to the actual work pressure and temperature instruments, which had higher prices.
3, in the explosive dangerous location, should choose explosion-proof type flowmeter.
4, the lower limit of flowmeter flow depends on the operation condition of the medium density and kinematic viscosity, the maximum flow is generally not affected by medium pressure and temperature, so to determine the flow range as long as you determine the actual minimum flow can be available.Calculate the minimum flow rate, flow range check table to determine the appropriate diameter.
