Expert’s answer: Promass 200 installation

Yup, up! No, that’s not a typo. Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up what you need to know about doing a Promass 200 installation.

Coriolis meters have pretty easy setups compared to most other meters. However, you have to follow one simple but super-important rule to get good results. Up. Up up up.

Install your Promass F 200 in a vertical pipe with the flow going up. That way, you know the pipe will always exist in one of two conditions, filled or not filled. Partially filled pipes won’t cut it. Installing it this way will avoid a lot of future problems. If your operator likes to say that the meter doesn’t work properly, then this setup should kill that excuse dead.

If you can’t install the flow meter in a vertical pipe, you’re stuck. Just kidding. You have other options, but they’ll depend on the product you need to measure. Just go up. You’ll thank me for it.
