Vortex Insertion Flowmeter — DVE Series

Vortex Insertion Flowmeter — DVE Series

Measuring the flow of hot water, steam, or gas in large-diameter pipes presents unique challenges. Inline meters are often expensive, and orifice systems lack the necessary accuracy and turndown ratio.

A better solution

Heinrichs DVE Series Vortex Insertion Flowmeters are a practical and economical solution for volumetric or mass flow measurement of liquids, gases and steam. With their insertion probe design, they can be easily and affordably installed into existing pipes up to 24 in. (600 mm) with a single cold or hot tap. DVE Series flowmeters also provide exceptional accuracy and turndown ratios of 30:1 up to 100:1.

A better design

The DVE Series' patented mechanical design minimizes the effects of pipeline vibration and pump noise, which often cause errors in other vortex flowmeters. Rugged, fully welded construction with no seals or moving parts helps ensure long-term reliability.

Four models for various process measurements — one can even help you save energy

Model Sensing Elements Measures Description/Applications
DVE-V - Vortex shedding velocity sensor - Volumetric flow rate - Cost-effective monitoring of most liquids, gases and steam in applications ranging from general water flows to hydrocarbon fuel flow
DVE-T - Vortex shedding velocity sensor
- RTD temperature sensor
- Volumetric flow rate
- Mass flow rate
- Typically used to measure mass flow rate of saturated steam
DVE-P - Vortex shedding velocity sensor
- RTD temperature sensor
- Solid-state pressure transducer
- Volumetric flow rate
- Mass flow rate
- Pressure
- Temperature
- Density
- Provides instantaneous readings of compensated mass flow rate of gases, liquids and steam; field-configurable electronics deliver up to three 4–20mA analog outputs of five process measurements
DVE-M - Vortex shedding velocity sensor
- RTD temperature sensor
- Solid-state pressure transducer
- Second temperature sensor for opposite leg of process
- Volumetric flow rate
- Mass flow rate
- Pressure
- Temperature
- Density
- Energy consumption
- Programmable to measure steam, hot water or chilled water; monitors one side of process and uses the second temperature sensor’s input to determine change for real-time calculation of energy consumption; optional energy monitoring software can help you optimize consumption and save up to 30% in energy
