The Function Of Coriolis Mass Flow Meters

in Mass

You may have heard of mass flow meters. Well, they are also called inertial flow meters or coriolis mass flow meters. Coriolis mass flow meters measure the mass of a fluid moving through certain tubes. This is used in engines, where fuel will move through the fuel lines, in oil pipelines, where the correct amount of oil must be calculated, and any other system where the exact amount of substance must be known. The coriolis mass flow meter measures the mass of the fluid, not the volume, so other meters must be used, such as a gas mass flow meter, if you need to know both measurements.

Why is this Necessary?

Why would you need to use a coriolis mass flow meter? Well, for instance, what if you were working on an oil pipeline. Oil is a very expensive commodity and so you would want to know exactly how much you're working with. This makes coriolis mass flow meters extremely important.

However, even if you're working with smaller amounts of a substance, such as gasoline in your car, you'll want to know exactly how much fuel is going into your engine. So a smaller coriolis mass flow meter will be used. There are many uses for coriolis mass flow meters, as long as the mass of a certain substance needs to be known.

Proper Maintenance

You must make sure that you inspect your coriolis mass flow meter often to make sure that it's working effectively. The engineers who designed the coriolis mass flow meter made it so precise that it would correctly measure the mass of whatever liquid was passing through the tubes.

After a while of use, the meter could become worn and it may give an inaccurate measurement. This could cost you money if you're a business owner, of if you're using the coriolis mass flow meter for personal use on a smaller scale. So make sure you inspect your meter often to make sure it's giving you the most accurate measurement possible.

Don't Sacrifice Quality for Cost

When it comes to coriolis mass flow meters, you want to make sure you get the best available. It would be tempting to go with the cheapest piece of equipment you can find but you'll only hurt yourself in the long run. Coriolis flow meters, and gas mass flow meters, are designed to be accurate and they're designed to save you time and money so you should do your research to make sure you're getting the best you possibly can, no matter what the product costs.
