Why Rotameter

‡ Are Rotameters technical an atractive product? ‡ Can Rotameters help you to solve your customers measurement problems? ‡ Do Rotameters look smart? How do you feel when you say: I am selling this tiny little products called ROTAMETERS ? Question: Do you like cows?

No!! Probably not! No!!

Bad!!

Why Rotameter

We do not like cows we like the cheese!!

Why Rotameter ‡ Are ROTAMETERs low-tec products? It depends. ask PMK for more discount. Are ROTAMETERs for simpel minded. Page. For a manufacturer they are quite complicate. the customer will order by himself. Are ROTAMETERs easy to sell? If you are in.6 . For a user they are very simple to handle and to maintain.but physics is complicate and manufactoring high automatisized. You do not need any electronic at a ROTAMETER. Large projects (only metal) you have big discounts. low educated people? It depends.

But this product has a wide variety. And: you need a very good inside sales Rotameter. Therefore: You have to understand ROTAMETERs from basic.Why Rotameter Are ROTAMETERs easy to specify? It is easy if you know the product.7 . no problem for me! Page.

Less spare parts are required.6 realy means in percentage of flow? A2: The accuracy of a VA-Meter is given by the so called accuracy class. Fi = Flow rate at point of measurement in engineering units Fs = Full scale flow rate K = accuracy class i. cc3/min if the following formula is applied: E = (3/4 Fi + 1/4 Fs) K 100 E = Total measurement error in engineering units.RAMC FAQ Q1: Why choose a metal tube against a glass tube? A1: A metal tube is chosen because of the higher pressure and temperature. for every scale position a tolerance of accuracy can be calculated (in engineering units as l/hr. 2. Q2: What does the accuracy class of 1. i.e.49 . because of safety reasons.5 Page.g.

Options up to 4 different floats are available. You exchange float and scale very easily and quickly. Q5: Is it possible to change the flow span of an existing unit? A5: Changing the flow span of an already existing unit is possible. Question & answers RAMC Page. ut RYG is keeping all orginal water calibrations. for higher temperatures we have to use the 63 housing (aluminium housing). For gases pressure and temperature changes effect the scale. changes in density effect the scale.50 . the calibration ia also affected.RAMC FAQ Q3: What process temperature do we use the high temperature option? A3: Process temperature up to 100rC can be measured in the 64 version (plasitic housing). Q4: If the process condition changes is the calibration affected? A4: If the process condition is changing. so new scaling for other fluids can be done very simply. If liquids are measured.

If S1 is changed to M1 for example we get one class lower. Q7: What is the highest viscosity the RAMC can measure? A7: This question can not be answered in one sentence it depends on the size of the flowmeter and the kind of the float. Page.RAMC FAQ Q6: What is the effect on the accuracy if a new float is fitted? A6: If the new float is the same one as the float to be replaced accuracy will also be the same.5 of the nominal pressure i.e. The required special helium leak test as well as pentetration tests are available. Leak test means that the flowmeter has to to be placed under water filled with air and tested at 6 bar.51 . No bubbles must appear. S1 is less sensitive than M1. Q8: What test are carried out on the welded parts? A8: We have to distinguish between a pressure-test and a leak-test. Pressure test is executed with F = 1. g for 1 minute. PN 40 = Pressure test at 60 bar. M1 is less sensitive than L1.

52 .5 M by special arrangement we can offer other finishes. for example Hastelloy C4 or Monel. DIN-flanges PN40 and ANSI flange 150lbs RF are standard.4571 is available. Page. What is the Ra value? A12: The standard production offers Rc 12. Q12: What is flange finish. Q10: Is there an option of PTFE and other wetted parts materials? A10: Standard lining is PTFE. Other lining material as PVDF or Polypropylene are possible. Also other material than 1. Q11: It is possible to receive calibration data of an old unit? A11: ROTA YOKOGAWA keeps all orginal water calibration for a period of 13 years.RAMC FAQ Q9: Can the meter be supplied with RTJ or other process connections? A9: Special flange connections are available at higher prices.

53 . A difference of +/. Q16: Are there any cavitation problems? A16: There are nor problems of the low flow speed and low pressure drops.RAMC FAQ Q13: Are straight pipes required? A13: Straight pipes of 5D before and 5D behind the VA-Meter are recommended for DN80 and DN100. no installation behind piston pumps. Page. Q15: What is the effect of miss-aligned pipes? A15: Influence of miss-aligned pipes can be neglected.1 step between diameter of the pipe and diameter of the VA-Meter is allowed. Q14: Is there any sensitivity against pulsations? A14: Pulsation should be avoided.
