The DVE multivariable insertion-design vortex flow meters use up to three primary sensing elements for flow measurement: a vortex-shedding velocity sensor, an RTD temperature sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer to measure the mass flow rate of gases, liquids and steam.
Systems that use external process measurements may not provide adequate enough compensation for process conditions that can change between the point of velocity measurement and the point where upstream or downstream pressure and temperature measurements are happening. Because the DVE measures all of these parameters in one single location, it delivers a more accurate measurement. Integrating multivariable output capability with a single line penetration also simplifies the system complexity. It also helps reduce initial equipment cost, installation cost and overall maintenance costs.
Three models are available: The DVE-V vortex flow meter provides a cost effective volumetric flow monitoring solution for most liquids; the DVE-T vortex flow meter incorporates temperature sensing to provide a compensated mass flow reading of saturated steam; and the DVE-P multivariable vortex flow meter delivers mass flow, temperature, pressure and density readings from a single device.
For applications best suited for an inline installation, KOBOLD offers two inline vortex flow meters. The DVZ Compact Inline Vortex Flow Meter offers flow measurement, switching, and batching capabilities. For more rigourous applications and mulitvariable measurement capabilities, consider the DVH Inline Vortex and Multivariable Flow Meter.

We are the industrial instrumentation partner of choice with comprehensive solutions for measuring what matters to you.
For over 40 years, KOBOLD has been a value-driven leader in process measurement and control solutions. We offer one of the industry’s broadest lines of sensors, switches, and transmitters to measure and control flow, pressure, level, and temperature.
We offer excellence in engineering, high value products, and exceptional customer partnerships that last beyond the sale. Because we design, manufacture, sell, and provide support for our products, you can be assured that you and your application are in expert hands.
We aren’t just interested in selling you instrumentation. You are our priority. Trying to wade through the extensive technologies and options can be a bit intimidating. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. We are here to partner with you, providing free advice from our in-house engineering experts who have decades of collective experience.
We are old-fashion in our beliefs about what doing business should look like. We still have someone answering our phone who will quickly direct you to the right person. We still believe in delivering true value and not subpar quick-fix products that become headaches down the road. We build our products like we build our relationships, for the "long haul".
For certain large-scale projects, we are also able to provide demo instrumentation so you can be confident that our solution is the right fit for your application. We want our products to be the best fit as much as you do. There is no project too large or too small for us.
We believe that "Made in the USA" still means something. Our products are built with that in mind as we aim to exceed the standards and ideals of quality-focused US manufacturing. We offer the best of both worlds. German engineering is still known as being among the finest and we are proud to build some of the most innovative products in the world. We are also focused on sourcing practices that allow us to provide higher quality components, shorter lead times, and longer lasting products than other instrumentation manufacturers.
We offer one of the industry’s broadest lines of sensors, switches, and transmitters to measure and control flow, pressure, level, and temperature.
We have historically set the bar for innovation and excellence, helping to shape the field of industrial instrumentation into what it is today. Our technologies offer a solution-oriented way to control the most diverse and complex variables and can be easily integrated into a wide variety of systems in many industrial and commerical sectors.
We will not try to sell you any instrumentation that isn’t ideally suited for your application. Because we are unique in the extensiveness of our product line, we don’t have to try and “force a fit” just to make a sale like other companies with limited product lines. In the event we do not have the right solution, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.
While we offer a wide variety of standard instrumentation, we are also able to handle unique, difficult, or challenging applications that others can not. Our familiarity with exotic materials allows us to offer solutions for variables that are frequently hard to accommodate. Because we are the manufacturer, we also have the flexibility of being able to provide customized solutions in certain circumstances, based on the exact application needs.
