Compact flow meter
EP Editorial Staff | December 5, 2020
The Rosemount 8800 Quad Vortex flow meter has quadruple sensors and transmitters to meet safety-integrity-level requirements.
Using multiple independent sensors in an all-welded meter body, the unit provides a compact flow solution with built-in redundancies for added safety without introducing intentional leak points. The meter’s design allows a SIL3-capable solution and protects against spurious trips using a 2oo3 voting method. The voting method ensures that at least two of the sensors must read “good” for a process to continue, which means one poor reading does not trip a complete process shutdown.
