Coriolis meters for Europe

Litre Meter s distributing a range of coriolis flowmeters from US-based manufacturer Tricor that is backed by the engineering expertise of designers involved in many of the original patents for coriolis technology.

Tricor’s engineers have been continually developing coriolis flow instrumentation technology since its inception. The meters are designed and engineered in the United States, manufactured, calibrated and tested at a state-of-the-art facility in Germany then distributed throughout Europe by Litre Meter.

Litre Meter CEO Charles Wemyss said: “Tricor may be a new name on the scene but Tricor engineers have been intimately involved with the development and evolution of coriolis flow instrumentation since the beginning.

“Our customers can be confident that, as well as the expertise and back-up of our own engineers, they will benefit from high performance coriolis technology supported by the very gurus who crafted the originals.”

Coriolis meters are used in a wide range of applications worldwide in the oil and gas, petrochemical, food and beverage and life sciences sectors. Litre Meter is now able to supply the full Tricor range of coriolis instruments to its customers.

The meters offer a measuring accuracy of between+/- 0.10 per cent and +/- 0.15 per cent, even in long term operation and across a temperature range from -100 to +204°C depending on the meter selected. The mass flow rates that can be measured range between 0-300 kg/hr and 0-65,000 kg/hr with density range up to 5,000 kg/m³. Tricor coriolis meters are rated up to 100, 200 and 345 bar. Versions will soon be available with sanitary 3A tri-clamp flanges.

Coriolis technology works by passing a fluid towards (and away from) a centre of rotation through vibrating tubes. The force of the fluid passing through the tubes causes twist which is proportional to the mass flow rate of the fluid passing through them. Sensors and coriolis mass flowmeter transmitters are used to measure the twist and generate a linear flow signal.

The Tricor product line complements the range of flowmeters built by Litre Meter itself. They offer a broad range of metering technologies suitable for virtually every liquid, gas or steam measurement application and has particular expertise in measuring low flow rates.

Litre Meter CEO Charles Wemyss added: “Litre Meter’s strength has traditionally been in flowmeters for particularly demanding situations, often with meters almost custom-designed and built for particular applications. Tricor coriolis technology gives our customers access to a wide range of accurate and robust meters which meet the needs of a vast range of industry applications.”
