Beer flow measurement

Flow Food & Beverage Q&A

We would like to know if we can apply a Coriolis in the application, could you check? Product: Beer, flow range: 0 - 2500 l/h, temperature: - 20 to 20ºC and the pressure is 2 bar.

Expert’s answer: Beer flow measurement

Nope, no need to apply a Coriolis in a beer application for beer flow measurement. You can solve the flow measurement using a magmeter or a Vortex. Though, the price for a magmeter will be better compared to other technologies.

You can use the online tools from the manufacturer to scale out each flow meter and to decide which size fits best with your application. So, I scaled out a flow meter using the applicator tools, and the magmeter will offer you an accuracy around 0.5% in whole flow range.

If you want to scale out a different technology, then you can find the online software here:

Need more information? If so, these companies have magmeters on the market:
