Measurement of Fluid Flow by Means of Coriolis Mass Flowmeters
|Publication Date:||1 January 1989|
(a) describes Coriolis mass flowmeters in which the Coriolis force is developed by passing a fluid through one or more oscillating tubes. The magnitude of the resulting Coriolis force is a measure of mass flow through the flowmeter;
(b) applies only to primary elements running full with fluid flow that is steady or varies only slowly with time;
(c) provides information and terminology generic to a Coriolis mass flowmeter;
(d) lists the application factors that may affect the performance;
(e) lists information of interest to users regarding the capability of the flowmeter (see Appendix A).
This Standard does not provide design details or their effect on flowmeter performance. The user is referred to the manufacturer for this information.
