Overview of Coriolis Flowmeters

The French mathematician Gustave Coriolis formulated the principle that underlies Coriolis flowmeters. Coriolis showed in 1835 that an inertial force needs to be taken into account when the motion of bodies in a rotating frame of reference is described. The earth is often used as an example of the Coriolis force. A hypothetical object thrown from the North Pole to the equator appears to vary from its intended path, due to the earth’s rotation.

Coriolis flowmeters contain one or more vibrating tubes. These tubes are usually bent, although straight-tube meters are also available. The fluid to be measured passes through the vibrating tubes. It accelerates as it flows toward the maximum vibration point, and slows down as it leaves that point. This causes the tubes to twist. The amount of twisting is directly proportional to mass flow. Position sensors detect tube positions.

While the roots of today’s Coriolis flowmeters can be traced back to the 1950s, it was not until 1977 that Micro Motion introduced a commercially viable Coriolis flowmeter for industrial applications. Since that time, a number of other suppliers have READ MORE >

One main goal of this study was to determine the size of the Coriolis flowmeter market worldwide in 2007. This market continues to be one of the fastest growing flowmeter markets, as end-users continue to order Coriolis flowmeters for their superior accuracy and high reliability.

One important issue is the growth in the use of straight-tube Coriolis flowmeters. Up until 1994, all Coriolis meters had bent tubes. While bent tube meters still have many advantages, they do introduce pressure drop. Pressure drop is an issue because in many cases the fluid has to be pumped up to its original velocity. This costs money, as it requires the use of pumps. Krohne was the first company to introduce a commercially successful straight tube meter in 1994.

This study also examines the growing use of Coriolis flowmeters for gas flow measurement. Coriolis flowmeters were originally brought out to measure the flow of liquids. While gas flow measurement is somewhat more difficult for Coriolis meters, their use for this purpose is growing. Custody transfer of natural gas is a fast growing market, especially with the increased popularity of natural gas as an energy source, and with the rising price of both oil and natural gas. Custody transfer is one of a number of gas applications that are boosting sales of Coriolis meters.

Steam flow measurement is a new frontier for Coriolis flowmeters. Currently, this market is dominated by differential pressure (DP) and vortex flowmeters. However, as the technology improves, this is becoming a growth area for Coriolis flowmeters. Steam flow measurement is growing in importance as companies look to increase energy efficiency and cut energy costs. The high accuracy and reliability of Coriolis meters make this an attractive option for some steam flow applications.
