Vortex Flowmeter (Badgermeter)

badgermeter vortex flowmeter - VN2000-Steam-Vortex-Meter-Mount-(Compact)_low-res

VN2000 Compact Direct Insertion Meter

The VN2000 Compact Direct Insertion Vortex Flow Meter measures the volumetric or mass flow rate of steam, gases or liquids over a large flow range. The meter is a heavy duty design engineered to stand up to the most abusive environments inside and outside the pipe.

Reliable, Easy to Install Compact Insertion Meter.

Ideal for accurately measuring liquids, compressed air and saturated steam. No moving parts and virtually maintenance-free once installed.

  • Reduced Installation Errors. Mounting Kit included to simplify the installation and ensure proper installation depth and orientation for a specified pipe size
  • Reliable measurement for steam and a variety of fluids. Heavy duty design engineered to stand up to the most abusive environments inside and outside the pipe
  • Reduced Maintenance Costs and Spare Parts. No internal o-rings or seals of any kind and absolutely no leak paths into the sensors or electronics. Our sensors do not touch the process fluid, which gives them an almost unlimited life span.

badgermeter vortex flowmeter - RVL Series (low res)

RVL Series Meter

The RVL series meter uses vortex-shedding technology has no moving parts, and any potential for fluid contamination is eliminated by the corrosion-resistant all-plastic construction. Unlike meters containing metal or moving parts, the RVL is perfect for aggressive or easily contaminated fluids.

No moving parts. Corrosion-resistant all-plastic construction.

Ideal for aggressive or easily contaminated fluids once installed.

  • Flow metering for aggressive fluids. Applications range from ultra-pure water to highly corrosive chemicals and slurries
  • Replaceable Electronics Module. Includes a compact two-wire (4…20 mA) or three-wire pulse transmitter, contained within a conveniently replaceable plug-in electronics module. All electronics are housed in a corrosion-resistant enclosure.
