InnovaMass 240s and 241s – Sierra Vortex Meters

Multivariable and Volumetric 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.

Sierra was the first to introduce a multivariable mass vortex flow meter to the market in the late 1990’s. Sierra’s multivariable product line features an in-line version, the InnovaMass® 240 and a unique insertion version, the InnovaMass® 241S. The 241S has emerged recently as the proven instrument of choice in geothermal steam applications across the globe. Both the 240S and 241S measure the mass flow rate of any gas or liquid and are ideally suited for saturated or super-heated
steam. The InnovaMass offers customers one instrument and one process connection, measuring five process parameters simultaneously: mass flow rate, temperature, pressure, volumetric flow rate, and fluid density. The 241S is available in high-pressure versions capable of mass flow measurement up to 5000
psig (345 barg), and the 240S cryogenic version is widely used for fluids down to -330°F (-200°C). All models are fully field-programmable, configurable
and feature RS-485, Modbus, HART and BACnet protocols. InnovaMass is a true high performance, rugged, and reliable workhorse in industry.
