Spirax Sarco Receives Honorable Mention from Control Engineering Magazine

Spirax Sarco, Inc.'s VLM10 Inline Vortex Mass Flowmeter has been awarded with an Honorable Mention in Control Engineering Magazine's 2013 Engineers' Choice Award.  This honor is presented each year to the manufacturing facilities that have the best new control, instrumentation and automation products in the industry.

Spirax Sarco first introduced the VLM10 flowmeter for mass, volumetric, and energy flow measurement on steam, liquid, and gas applications in February 2012.  The VLM10 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 in sizes 1" to 12".

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.

In picking products for the award, survey respondents were asked to select products based on technology advancement, service to the industry, and market impact.  The Control Engineering Award winners will be features in Control Engineering Magazine's February 2013 print and digital edition.
