ABB’s new range of vortex and swirl
flowmeters measure volume, mass and energy flow in a single device
announces the launch of the next generation of Swirl and Vortex meters. The SwirlMaster
and VortexMaster are engineered to meet a wide range of measurement
applications, providing enhanced meter diagnostics, high accuracy, high
reliability and ease of installation. The new devices offer numerous new
innovations to save operational costs and improve performance.
SwirlMaster standard version (FSS430) is based on a unique primary design which
allows for extremely short upstream and downstream piping and improved accuracy
over other flowmeter designs. These features allow for substantial cost savings
in piping and makes it the perfect retrofit flow meter for tight spaces.
FSS450 enhanced version has built in flow computing functionality which
eliminates the need for external flow computers for functions such as
steam-power calculation. The FSS450 with 4 to 20 mA inputs measures density,
pressure and temperature and is available in sizes from ½” to 16” with ANSI
Class Flange Ratings of 150#, 300# and 600#.
utilizes the same platform as the SwirlMaster. The standard version (FSV430) is
used for basic applications while the enhanced version (FSV450) offers the same
optional capability as the SwirlMaster. The VortexMaster offers extended flow
turndown and improved speed of response (about 1 second) and is available in
sizes from ½” to 6” in wafer design and from ½” to 12” with ANSI Flanges of
150# to 900# with special designs up to 1500#.
the SwirlMaster and VortexMaster feature a new common electronics platform. The
new display is based on ABB’s standard HMI design which features the ABB TTG (Through
The Glass), allowing for configuration set up through the glass without opening
the device and exposing the electronics to corrosive gases or explosive
meters have CRN approval and Canadian hazardous and explosion-proof electrical
