Mass Flowmeter for Bulk Measurement and Custody Transfer

Mar 20 2017 Comments 0

KROHNE, Inc. announces the new OPTIMASS 2000 S400 16-inch Coriolis mass flowmeter, which features the highest flow capacity of any Coriolis meter on the market. The large diameter mass flowmeter is ideal for bulk measurement of petroleum and oil, as well as syrup, molasses and raw chemicals. The meter has been approved for custody transfer of liquids and gases. With its unique four straight tube design, the OPTIMASS 2000 S400 features the smallest installation footprint in its class and offers significant energy savings with a lower pressure drop. The meter’s small installation footprint compared to other meters on the market makes it ideal for applications where space is limited, like offshore platforms, or where alterations of existing pipework would otherwise be necessary.

Able to handle flow rates as high as 4,600 tons per hour, the OPTIMASS 2000 S400 features an accuracy of 0.1 percent with a turndown of 20:1, and an optional 0.05 percent “flat” accuracy with a turndown of 10:1. The high turndown ratios keep flow velocities low, preventing build up or deposits in hydrocarbon applications.

The meter is available with NACE-compliant stainless steel measuring tubes, as well as with a Super Duplex option that offers a maximum operating pressure of 180 barg; 2,610 psig. It also features an approved secondary containment option that handles up to 150 barg; 2,175 psig. Thanks to KROHNE’s innovative Entrained Gas Management (EGM™) feature, the OPTIMASS 2400 maintains operation over a wide range of gas fractions and complex flow conditions.

The innovative four tube OPTIMASS 2000 S400 has been approved for custody transfer applications in accordance with the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) and Organisation Internationale de Métrologie Légale (OIML). The meter also complies with American Petroleum Institute (API) and American Gas Association (AGA) guidelines.
