Product Options


The new Panaflow MV 82 is an insertion multivariable vortex mass flow meter, suitable for measuring mass, temperature and pressure. Also allows volumetric flow measurement and density. The MV 82 is capable of measuring most qases, liquids and steam without the need to recalibrate.

The insertion multivariable mass vortex flow meters design consists of 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. That can mean that mass flow readings can be extremely inaccurate. The MV82 mass flow meter measures these parameters at the same location giving more accurate process measurements.

The MV82 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 MV82 vortex flow meters available so the user can choose the option with the most suitable configuration to suit their application.
