Spirax Sarco is Nominated for the 2012 Flow Control Innovation Award


Blythewood, SC -- Spirax Sarco, Inc.'s VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter has been selected as one of the final nominees for the 2012 Innovation Award by Flow Control Magazine. Additional nominees include novel technology solutions for fluid handling applications in the categories of fluid measurement, control and containments.

Spirax Sarco first introduced the VLM10 inline vortex flowmeter for mass, volumetric, and energy flow measurement on steam, liquid and gas applications in February 2012. This instrument combines an inline vortex meter, a built in flow computer and an integral temperature sensor giving users an elegant all in one solution for their metering needs.

The VLM10 is precise and reliable with a steam or gas mass flow accuracy of ± 1.5% of range over a wide 20:1 flow range. The fully welded, no gasket design, insures safe measurement of steam and allows the sensors and RTD to be removed without having to shut down the line first. The built in web server allows customers to monitor flow and monitor meter health through the internet. Digital communications delivers information on demand using Modbus RTU, BACnet MS/TP and Modbus TCP/IP technology with standard analog and pulse outputs. The VLM10 is available in a wide range of connections and pressure ranges.

To place your vote for the VLM10, simply go to Flow Control Magazine's homepage (www.flowcontrolnetwork.com) and click on the link to Vote Now. Voting ends August 1, 2012 at noon EDT. All voters will be entered into a random drawing to win an Apple iPad. All Flow Control Innovation Award winners will be announced in the September issue, with extended case studies/application stories on each of the winning technologies featured in the October issue.
