VN2000 Hot Tap Insertion
The VN2000 Hot Tap Insertion Vortex Flow Meter measures the volumetric flow, mass flow rate or BTU/energy of steam, gas or liquids over a large flow range. The meter is a heavy duty design engineered to stand up to the most abusive environments inside and outside the pipe.

Within the flow meter as flowing media moves across the strut or "bluff bar" vortices are also shed, but on a smaller scale. The meter transmits an ultrasonic beam through the vortex pattern downstream of the strut. As vortices are shed, the carrier wave of the ultrasonic signal modulates. The modulation of the carrier wave is measurable and proportional to the number of vortices shed. Digital processing enables the vortices to be counted, and this value is converted into a velocity.
