Coriolis mass flowmeters are devices used to measure the mass flow rate of a fluid. They work based on the principle of the Coriolis effect, which is the apparent deflection of the path of an object moving in a rotating system. In the case of Coriolis mass flowmeters, the fluid flows through a vibrating tube, and the Coriolis force causes a phase shift in the vibration of the tube. This phase shift is directly proportional to the mass flow rate of the fluid, allowing for accurate measurement.
These flowmeters are commonly used in a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and water and wastewater treatment. In these industries, they are used to measure the flow rate of liquids and gases accurately. They can be used for various applications such as custody transfer, process control, batching, blending, and filling.
