F-2200 Series Steam Meter
Vortex Mass Flow Meter for Saturated Steam


Description

The ONICON F-2200 Series Steam Meter is designed for accurate, cost effective mass flow measurement of saturated steam. Utilizing advanced vortex sensing technology, the F-2200 is equipped with internal density compensation
providing highly accurate direct mass flow measurement.
Operating as a loop powered device, each meter provides a 4 – 20mA analog output, a scaled pulse output, and a built-in local display.
ONICON’s F-2200 Series Steam Meter offers a simplified, cost effective alternative to the use of expensive mass flow computers and a dramatic improvement in accuracy, especially when compared to uncompensated meters.


Features
Accurate cost effective
mass flow measurement
for saturated steam
in a single instrument

Provides Direct Mass Flow Measurement for Saturated Steam – the use of a precision platinum RTD and the ability to perform complex density calculations allow the meter to provide a direct mass flow measurement without the need for a separate mass flow computer with external temperature and pressure transmitters.

Highly Accurate – mass flow measurement accuracy for saturated steam exceeds 1.5% of reading in the most common pipe sizes.

Simple Installation and Commissioning – loop powered design simplifies wiring and signal processing.
Additionally, each meter is factory programmed and ready for use upon delivery. The built-in user interface provides access to all programming functions, including a comprehensive self diagnostic capability. This self diagnostic function can detect bi-phase flow and flow rates outside the programmed operating parameters.
It can also identify common installation problems.

State-of-the-Art Vortex Flow Sensing –
the use of titanium in the construction of the shedder bar offers both improved durability and improved sensitivity. Titanium is stronger, lighter and more flexible than steel.
Durability is improved by using a stronger more flexible material. Lighter weight and increased flexibility also improve the ability to sense the lower amplitude vortices associated with low velocity flow.

Advanced Signal Processing Enhances Accuracy– every meter is supplied with advanced filtering algorithms. These algorithms allow the meter to establish continuous real-time norms for signal strength and quality. Sudden changes to the anticipated strength or quality of the incoming signal is rejected as noise.
Additional signal processing cancels out the effect of common mode noise. Common mode noise is the type of noise most often associated with vibration in the piping system.

Calibration

Individually Calibrated and Programmed for Each Application - every meter undergoes a 5 point calibration from 0-250 ft/sec. In
