In the often limited space of industrial process plants, recommended straight run requirements can be difficult to find. Due to restricted pipework, it’s not always possible to carry out optimum installation as advised, away from valves, bends and other inline components that could cause excessive and problematic turbulence.
For accurate measurement to be achieved, clamp-on flow meters normally require an inlet length of at least 10D.
Thanks to FLEXIM’s substantial enhancement of our disturbance correction feature, good accuracy is now achieved even at non-ideal inflow conditions, reducing the required inlet length from 10D to just 2D. This innovation means that installation is achieved in even the tightest of spaces, without process interruption.
The enhanced Disturbance Correction feature has been implemented on all applicable meters starting 1st of June 2022. Watch this video for a quick explanation of the feature and its benefits.
