The installation of the PROMASS 100!

Flow Q&A

We have a new device but no manual. Could you tell us how to correctly install the Promass 100?


Expert’s answer:

Okay, here we go again! The Promass 100 follows universal Coriolis rules. That means it has the same installation basics as other flow meters on the market.

Here are the rules of the Coriolis club:

  • Install it in a vertical pipe with the flow going up whenever possible.
  • If you have to install it horizontally and it has bubbles or gas, head up again.
  • If you have to install it horizontally and it has solids in the fluid, head down this time.
  • Never install it with the head to the side.
  • It doesn’t need a straight pipe before or after it.
  • If you have a pressure transmitter after it, you need three to five outlet runs.
  • If you have a temperature transmitter after it, you need four to eight outlet runs.
