Badger Meter Inc. has introduced RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meters, the latest addition to an extensive line of flow instrumentation products.
The RCT1000 provides the ability to measure mass, volume, density and temperature simultaneously, Badger Meter said, providing control options to synchronize precision processes.
Every RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meter comes with the RCT Console software package. The RCT Console is designed to provide users maximum operational flexibility and ease-of-use, the company said. By allowing users quick access to configure measurement parameters through the RCT Console software or the LCD interface on the transmitter, Badger Meter said the meter can be set up and measuring flow in a matter of minutes.
The RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meter identifies flow rates by directly measuring fluid mass over a wide range of fluid temperatures and viscosities with a high degree of accuracy. Additionally, Badger Meter said the unobstructed, open flow design and measurement technique makes the RCT1000 suitable for a variety of fluids such as vegetable oils and fats, slurries, adhesives, coatings and hardeners, and other viscous, nonconductive fluids that are difficult to measure with other technologies.
According to the company, RCT1000 advantages include:
• Measures either liquid or gas
• Unobstructed open flow design
• Low-maintenance operation with no free-moving parts
• Modbus RTU and Ethernet network options
• Advanced fluid diagnostic tools
• Batching and PID control
• Pipe size: 1/16…3 in. (1.6…76.2 mm)
Liquids: up to ±0.1 percent of flow rate ± zero stability
Gases: up to ±0.5 percent of flow rate ± zero stability
Density: up to ±0.03121 lb/ft3 (0.0005 g/cm3)
• Zero stability: up to ±0.025% of full scale
• Repeatability: up to ±0.05% of flow rate
• Process temperature range: −40…392° F (−40…200° C)
• Wetted material: 316L stainless steel
