ABB Flow Measurement Products

Coriolis Mass Flowmeter

A wide range of meter sizes provide precise measurement of mass flow, volume flow, density, temperature and concentration. ABB´s Coriolis Master series has a history of success in a wide variety of industries and applications. With innovations like Sensor Application Memory, Easy Set-up and with up to 5 modular I/Os – they save time and money during installation, commissioning and maintenance.

The ABB CoriolisMaster operates according to the Coriolis principle. The construction features conventional parallel meter tubes and is characterized in particular by its space-saving, sturdy design, wide range of nominal diameters and minimal pressure loss.

Measuring principle

If mass flows through a vibrating pipe, Coriolis forces are generated which bend or twist the pipe. These very small measurement pipe deformations are picked up by optimally mounted sensors and electronically evaluated. Because the measured phase shift of the sensor signals is proportional to the mass flow, the mass conveyed by the measuring device can be recorded directly using the Coriolis mass flow meter.

The metering principle is independent of the density, temperature, viscosity, pressure and conductivity of the fluid. The meter tubes always vibrate at resonance. This arising resonant frequency is a function of the meter tube geometry, the characteristics of the materials and the mass of the medium in the resonating meter tube. It provides an accurate measure of the density of the measuring medium.

An integrated temperature sensor records the measuring medium temperature and is utilized for corrections to temperature-dependent device parameters. In summary, it is possible to simultaneously measure mass flow, density and temperature with the Coriolis Mass Flowmeter. Other measurement values can be derived from these values, e.g. volume flow rate or concentration.

Benefits of using ABB´s CoriolisMaster flowmeters:

  • Save cost by making several measurements with one device
  • Reduce flowmeter maintenance by up to 90 %
  • No mechanical wear and minimize installation issues
  • Save up to 25 % on pump power
  • Save critical installation space
