Endress+Hauser's new generation of vortex flowmeters is set to revolutionize flow measurement. Innovative but well-proven sensors, loop- or bus-power as well as comprehensive diagnostics make an instrument offering unique opportunities for process control. As a multi-variable device, Prowirl 200 also ensures safe operation and efficient energy management around the clock.

FF1412 EH ProdProwirl 200 features the world's first alarm function for directly detecting wet steam in a pipe. An inlet-run correction function ensures exact measurements even when installation space is at a premium and Heartbeat technology™ provides continuous self-diagnosis and simple device verification without process interruption. Gas mixtures with up to eight components can be freely defined. Steam and gas data are stored in accordance with international standards (IAPWS-IF97, AGA8, AGA5, SGERG, ISO 6976, etc.).

Prowirl 200 is available with a FOUNDATION fieldbus interface and field diagnostics. These features enable more efficient management of the control loop by assigning messages into four distinct categories. This allows users a quick overview of the seriousness of an event. Additional support is provided by a list of remedial actions and detailed help on addressing maintenance and repair issues. Users can modify the category assignment according to individual needs.

  • Greeting, We have installed Prowirl F200 DN80 on Saturated Steam, against following operating condition which was given by client. Flow: 8000lbs/h , Pressure: 10 bar , Temperature: 170C, Line Size 6 inch Applicator display the following outputs for these conditions Meter Size: DN80 Velocity 41 m/s Pressure Loss: 75mbar After installation transmitter display measuring value as following. Mass Flow 7193.13 kg/h ;;; is it mean the instrument size smaller then flow of 3628Kg/h big meter size required for 7193.13 kg/h Velocity 94.15 m/s Temperature 173.49C Client have query about pressure loss and claim the instrument drop the pressure 2 bar boiler running on 9 bar and production area receiving the 7 bar pressure after instrument installation. Could you share your views about this problem.
