No Pressure Drop or Maintenance
When measuring steam flow rate, pressure drop caused by orifice or vortex shedding meters robs energy from the steam, reducing the amount of power and heat delivered to the user. Using the GS868 with two ultrasonic transducers that do not protrude into the flow stream, transducer installation is obstructionless, causing no pressure drop and reducing steam generation costs. There is no regular maintenance required with the new flowmeters, further reducing long-term cost of ownership. Their titanium transducers have an all-metal boundary and are not affected by erosion from droplets. They will not fail due to thermal expansion cycles.
Wide Range of Flows, Temperatures and Pressures
A single GS868 ultrasonic flowmeter can cover a wide range of flows, giving additional savings. Because of their limited turndown ratios, conventional meters are used in multiple runs to cover all steam flow rates during high and low demand periods. Using a single GS868 to cover the full range results in lower capital and installation costs.
