InnovaMass 240i and 241i – Sierra Vortex Meters

iSeries Next Generation Vortex Flow Meters

 

Vortex is the ideal flow technology for gas, liquid and steam measurement. Available in both inline and insertion versions, Sierra’s multivariable InnovaMass vortex flow meter measures up to five process variables with one process connection: volumetric flow rate, mass flow, density, pressure, and temperature. You get true mass flow by compensating for temperature and pressure variations, which is ideal for highly accurate steam flow measurement. Maximize your steam productivity and lower your cost of ownership. Our vortex flow meters are also ideal for volumetric flow of water.

In 1997, Sierra was the first to introduce a combination volumetric vortex and multivariable mass flow meter. Today, Sierra’s completely redesigned InnovaMass® iSeries™ 240i/241i builds on two decades of success measuring five process variables for gas, liquid, and steam with one connection.

With this multivariable capability, it’s easier to maximize your steam productivity and reduce overall cost of ownership for more energy savings.
