Cone meter

Engineered primary element for DP flow measurement in applications with limited installation space

  • Meter run with integrated cone and single taps according to EN ISO 5167
  • Rugged solution for difficult media and harsh operating conditions, e.g. in oil and gas applications
  • Designed for large diameters (up to 24″), demanding flow profiles, high pressures and temperatures

Cone meter

Cone meter

A cone meter is an engineered primary element for demanding DP flow applications with reduced inlet/outlet runs where other primary elements cannot be used. It comes pre-assembled with a cone installed in a closed pipeline that is welded in a meter run. It is completely flexible as to the selection of the wetted materials and can be manufactured from any material in accordance with the ISO 5167 standard. The typical 12" or 34" taps have a butt or socket weld, thread or flange connection. The taps can be equipped with condensate chambers and shut-off valves.

Product highlights

  • Compact or separate design
  • Also available as engineered version for advanced requirements, e.g. extreme temperatures (-270…+1400°C / -454…+2552°F)
  • Can be made from any material if in accordance with ISO standard
  • Low maintenance and long life with low total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Possible for tight-fit and retrofit installations
  • Shortest possible upstream and downstream straight length for installation
  • Available with calibration in accordance with ISO 17025
  • Low uncertainty: ±0.25….0.35% (calibrated)
  • Taps can be equipped with condensate chambers and shut-off valves

Typical applications

  • Liquid applications at demanding (swirling / turbulent) flow conditions
  • Clean, dirty or abrasive fluids
  • Steam measurement under high-pressure conditions
  • Demanding DP flow measurement in limited spaces (before elbows etc.) where inlet and outlet sections required for other primary elements are impractical
  • Large line size applications
