Spirax Sarco Rebrands VLM10 Inline Vortex Mass Flowmeter to VLM20
Spirax Sarco, the leader in products and services for steam system management, announces the rebranding of the VLM10 Inline Vortex Flowmeter to VLM20. The VLM20 utilizes a common electronics platform that is now available in all the new 20 Series Meters to improve reliability and ease of use across the product line.
The VLM20 utilizes a SMART multivariable transmitter with integral temperature and pressure sensor giving users an elegant all in one solution for their measurement needs. A precision 1000 Ohm RTD and absolute pressure sensor are used to calculate density for mass flow and thermal energy flow from chilled, hot water and condensate return system.
The VLM20 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ± 1.5% of rate over a wide 30:1 flow range. Digital communications delivers real-time calculations of density, temperature, pressure, mass and thermal energy flow using Modbus RTU, BACnet® MS/TP and HART® communications in addition to the standard analog, pulse and relay outputs.
The VLM20 is available in line sizes ½” to 12” with flange ratings up to 600lb. ANSI. Wafer connections are also available from ½” – 4”. Wetted material include carbon steel and 316L stainless steel.
