The VM V-Cone System, manufactured by McCrometer, acts as its own flow conditioner, fully conditioning and mixing the flow prior to measurement.
The key benefit to the VM V-Cone flow meter’s unique design is its ability to provide reliable system accuracy of +0.5% of rate over a 10:1 flow range under the most difficult flow conditions. Readings are precise and reliable, even under changing flow conditions and start/stop flows.
Once installed, the primary element rarely, if ever, needs to be removed from service. This leaves only the flow transmitter with the occasional recalibration over its lifetime. The V-Cone family of flow meters have a proven long life with installations exceeding 20 years without the need to be removed or re-calibrated.
The VM V-Cone flow meter’s enhanced performance is due to the shape and positioning of the measuring element. The VM V-Cone flow meter’s unique design centers the differential pressure cone centrally in the flow tube. This placement reshapes the flow profile, giving the V-Cone the smallest footprint of any in-line flow meter. This conditioned flow creates a low amplitude, high frequency signal that is accurate to ±0.5% of rate.
