SITRANS FCS400 for OEM customers

Coriolis mass flow sensor

The SITRANS FCS400 is the market’s most compact sensor. The small size facilitates installation and replacement, and makes it possible to fit multiple units into tight spaces. At the heart of the compact design is the CompactCurveTM tube shape, offering an accuracy of 0.1% of flow rate and high sensitivity for optimal measurement of even very low flows. 

From its short tube length and large bore to its cylindrical frame and hemispherical flow manifold, the SITRANS FCS400 was designed from the ground up with the hallmarks of superior performance and reliability: a very stable zero point, low pressure loss, and high immunity to process noise and plant vibrations.

 

The sensor frame isolates the metering section from plant vibration by conducting them directly through to adjacent pipeline. Careful mounting of the pipeline with regard to minimizing vibration at the meter will ensure a secure measurement environment.

 

In order to make a complete flowmeter system, the SITRANS FCS400 flow sensor must be combined with the transmitter SITRANS FCT030 or SITRANS FCT010.

Benefits

  • Compactness – enabling smaller and more efficient plant or skid layout and construction
  • Flexibility – available from DN15 to DN50 ensuring a broad application fit
  • Easy installation– with a wide range of standard flange, thread and hygienic connectors
  • Easy installation– with a wide range of standard flange, thread and hygienic connectors
  • High accuracy– ±0.1% achieved at up to 100 bars and 200 °C
  • “Plug & Play” – with pre-configured sensor cable
  • Digitally reliable– all primary process variables are digitally transferred to the transmitter

Features

  • High measurement frequency
  • High signal to noise ratio
  • Digital signal transfer
  • SensorFlash® removable SD card transfers setup and operating data
  • Certified for custody transfer

Typical applications: Dosing within chemical industry (batching and dosing of chemicals, paints, fertilizers, gases), Food & beverage industry (beer, juices, liquid such as chocolate, dressings), Automotive industry (Engine test rigs) and Marine (fuel consumption, bunkering).
