TVA Flowmeters

Overview

Accurate and reliable measurement of your entire steam flow.

Unlike alternative technologies, the TVA Flowmeter allows you to measure the complete flow range.

Capturing all steam used within your maximum and minimum flowrate, allowing accurate and comprehensive steam energy management. 

Measures your entire steam flow range.

50:1 turndown at best practice steam velocities. 

Highly accurate - measurement helps to identify energy saving and waste reduction opportunities. 

Easy integration and installation - within host control system and existing pipework. 

Long operating life - well proven and highly robust design gives excellent reliability. 

Low cost of ownership - with quick installation combined with excellent reliability.

TVA Flowmeter

TVA Flowmeter

Designed for use on saturated and superheated steam (with the dedicated pressure sensor kit) and operates on the target principle, by measuring the force produced on a moving cone by the fluid flow. This force is then converted into density compensated mass flowrate and is transmitted via a single loop powered 4 - 20 mA and pulsed output. TVA flowmeters also incorporate a totalised flow function and EAI 232C (RS 232) or EAI 485C (RS485) Modbus communications.
