Product Options


The Panaflow MV80 is an in-line multivariable vortex flow meter, suitable for measuring mass flow, temperature and pressure. Also allows volumetric flow measurement and density. The MV80 mass flow meter can measure most qases, liquids and steam.

The in-line mass flow meter's design has a vortex shredding velocity sensor, an RTD temperature sensor and a solid state pressure transducer that measures the mass flow rate of steam, gases and liquids. Most meter types measure temperature and pressure at different points as the devices are not generally installed at the same points This can mean that mass flow readings can be extremely inaccurate. The MV80 measures these parameters at the same location giving more accurate process measurements.

The MV80 mass flow meter is very cost effective as it integrates pressure and temperature with a simplified system. This saves on initial capital costs and also installation costs. All parameters can be sent straight to your data acquisition system, so there is no need to purchase additional instrumentation.

There are a variety of MV80 vortex meters available so the user can choose the option with the most suitable configuration to suit their application.
