SIEMENS SITRANS FX330 Vortex Flow Meter

SITRANS FX330 Vortex Flow Meter
Vortex shedding flowmeters are a type of flowmeter available to the process industry for the consistent evaluation of flow rates. These flowmeters measure the volumetric flow rate of media such as steam flowing in pipes, gases, and low viscosity liquids, boasting both versatility and dependability. Since they have no moving parts, they are impervious to the kind of wear turbine or mechanical meters experience.

The SIEMENS SITRANS FX330 vortex flow meter from Siemens takes your steam, gas and liquid flow measurements to a new level with this new, digitally based product. Ideal for HVAC and auxiliary systems, and versatile enough for use in many process applications, the FX330 Vortex flow meter is a reliable and versatile flow system. It combines flow, pressure and temperature monitoring into one user- friendly, two-wire device. You benefit from enhanced energy and process efficiency, greater accuracy and significant cost savings.

Principles of Ultrasonic Flow in Industrial Clamp On Flow Meters

Ultrasonic Flow in Industrial Clamp On Flow Meters
The video below demonstrate the principles applied to industrial clamp on flow meters using the SITRANS FS as an example.

The ultrasonic technology of the SITRANS clamp on flow meter provides highly accurate measurement of liquids and gases. With no pressure drop or energy loss, a wide turn-down ratio and no need to cut the pipe or stop the flow, installation is easy and maintenance is minimal.

Siemens SITRANS LUT400 Pump Level Assist Routines

Siemens SITRANS LUT400

The Siemens SITRANS LUT400 series controllers are compact, single point, long-range ultrasonic controllers for continuous level, or volume measurement of liquids, slurries, and solids, and high accuracy monitoring of open channel flow.

The preconfigured pump routines in the SITRANS LUT 400 allow you to choose the best pump control scenario for your application. In the video below, you will see how the assist pump routines work.

The SITRANS LUT 400 has three assists pump routines available:
  • Alternate duty assist
  • Service ratio duty assist
  • Fixed duty assist
The fixed duty assist routine mainly uses one pump to control the liquid level. In this example, pump 1 will always start before pump 2. When the liquid level reaches the pump 1 “on” set point, pump one will turn on. If the liquid level continues to rise while pump one is running, then pump 2 will start. Pump 2 will assist pump 1 to lower the liquid level. Both pumps we'll turn off when the liquid level reaches the “off” set point. This pump sequence is fixed. Pump 1 will always start first, then if necessary, pump 2 will assist pump 1.

The alternate duty assist routine rotates between both pumps to control the liquid level. Pump 1 will start first. If it cannot keep up with the inflow, then pump 2 will turn on and assist pump 1. Both pumps will run until the liquid level reaches the pump “off” set point. On the next cycle, pump 2 will be the first pump to start. Pump 1 will assist pump 2 if it is necessary. The starting pump will continue to alternate between pump 1 and pump 2 after each filling cycle.

The service ratio duty assist routine rotates between both pumps based on the defined service ratio. In this example the service ratio is split equally between both pumps. The SITRANS LUT will choose which pump starts first based on this ratio. Since pump 1 has the lowest runtime hours it starts first. Pump 2 will assist pump 1 if the level continues to increase.  On the next cycle, pump 2 to will start first. Pump 1 will assist pump 2 if necessary. The service duty ratio assist routine will continue to maintain the runtime ratio for each filling cycle.

Basic Programming for the SITRANS F M Electromagnetic Flowmeter

The video below explains the basics of programming the SITRANS F M electromagnetic flowmeter.

The SITRANS F M MAG 5000 & 6000 are microprocessor-based transmitters engineered for high performance, easy installation, commissioning and maintenance. These transmitters are truly robust, cost-effective and suitable for all-round applications. The MAG 5000 has a measuring accuracy of ± 0.4% of the flow rate (incl. sensor), while the MAG 6000 has a measuring accuracy of ± 0.2% of the flow rate and can be fitted with optional plug-in communication modules.


Other Members of the SITRANS F M MAG Family:
