Overview

Swirl flow meters combine the measuring dynamics of turbine meters with the robustness and reliability of  Vortex flow metering by requiring shortest upstream / downstream distances. Equipped with digital signal processing (DSP) and advanced filtering techniques, these innovative flow meters from ABB allow improved flow signal detection and provide measurement immunity from the effects of hydraulic noise and pipeline vibration. Examples include FSS430 and FSS450.

FSS430 Overview

Swirl flow meters can be utilized for highly accurate measurement of the flow of gases, liquids and steam over a wide range of temperatures in almost any application. Swirl meters are ideal for use on petrochemical raw materials, demineralized water and for direct, cost- effective steam mass flow by employing integral temperature measurement.SwirlMaster FSS430 is the standard design with excellent vibration cancellation and analog output with HART communication. Optionally available with HMI and digital outputs. Available with integral or remote transmitter with up to 30 m (98 ft.) cable length.

FSS430 Data

General specifications:
  • Easy assembly – Only the shortest possible straight pipe lengths are required – Measuring ranges have been well adopted to the flow rates
  • Intuitive operation – Easy Set-up function – Clear text display – Meter configuration through the front glass with closed cover
  • Accuracy for liquids, gases and steam – +/- 0.5 % of rate
  • Process connection / meter sizes – Flange design / DN 15 to 400 (1/2 to 16 in.)
  • Approvals for explosion protection – ATEX, IECEx, cFMus, NEPSI
  • SIL2-certified in accordance with IEC 61508
  • Output / communication – 4 to 20 mA / HART 7 – Modbus RTU-RS485
  • Optional binary output – For use as a limit switch, pulse output or frequency output
  • Optional input from field – Pressure, temperature, methane content, density gas analyzer

FSS450 Overview

Swirl flow meters can be utilized for highly accurate measurement of the flow of gases, liquids and steam over a wide range of temperatures in almost any application. Swirl meters are ideal for use on petrochemical raw materials, demineralized water and for direct, cost- effective steam mass flow by employing integral temperature measurement.The SwirlMaster FSS450 is the advanced version with additional analog input for mass or energy flow measurement. Available with integral or remote transmitter with up to 30 m (98 ft.) cable length. Using optional inputs discrete flow computers are not longer needed in many applications.

FSS450 Data

General specifications:
  • Easy assembly – Only the shortest possible straight pipe lengths are required – Measuring ranges have been well adopted to the flow rates
  • Intuitive operation – Easy Set-up function – Clear text display – Meter configuration through the front glass with closed cover
  • Accuracy for liquids, gases and steam – +/- 0.50% of rate
  • Process connection / meter sizes – Flange design / DN 15 to 400 (1/2 to 16 in.)
  • Approvals for explosion protection – ATEX, IECEx, cFMus, NEPSI
  • SIL2-certified in accordance with IEC 61508
  • Output / communication – 4 to 20 mA / HART 7
  • Optional binary output – For use as a limit switch, pulse output or frequency output
  • Optional input from field – Pressure, temperature, methane content, density gas analyzer
  • Integrated flow measurement computer functionality – Gas standard volume and mass flow – Vapor mass flow – Direct energy calculation for vapor and water – Natural gas calculation in accordance with AGA / SGERG standards
