Diameter Coriolis Flowmeter for
the Oil and Gas Industry
Inc., a global technology leader in the development, manufacture and
distribution of measurement
instrumentation for the process industries,
introduces the OPTIMASS 2000, a large diameter Coriolis mass
flowmeter for accurate and repeatable bulk measurement in the oil
the straight tube design of the OPTIMASS 1000, the product range has been
extended with the OPTIMASS 2000 to provide accurate measurement for the
bulk fluids market.
in three sizes, 4 inch, 6 inch and 10 inch, OPTIMASS 2000 wetted parts are
constructed of NACE compliant duplex stainless steel (ANS 31803) and the
meter is available with flange ratings up to 1500 lbs, and flange sizes
from 4 inch to 12 inch.
OPTIMASS 2000 is CRN approved and can handle process pressures to 2200
PSIG (150 bar) with a stainless steel outer cylinder that can handle burst
pressures in excess of 1500 PSI (100 bar).
Flow rates ranging from 250 lb/min (7000 Kg/h) to 4400 lb/min
(1,2000,000 Kg/h) are easily handled by the OPTIMASS 2000 with a measuring
accuracy of 0.1%
major benefit for the oil and gas industry is the low flowrate feature of
the OPTIMASS 2000.
A lower rate of flow prevents the build-up of static in
hydrocarbons without affecting measurement accuracy.
The low flowrate capability is also a benefit for custody transfer
OPTIMASS 2000 features the MFC300 converter and is available in a compact
or remote version.
All signal processing is carried out by the MFC300 which converts
the meter output to a MODBUS RTU communications signal.
The “split architecture” of the MFC300 secures all calibration
data in redundant memory.
The meter can also be supplied with DDC (Direct Digital
Communications) where the application doesn’t require a converter.
