SITRANS FX300

1.1 Intended use


The vortex flowmeters are made to measure the flow of gases, vapours and liquids.

These flowmeters are particularly suitable for measuring:

Clean liquids with low viscosity (< 10 cP)


Hydrocarbons with low viscosity (< 10 cP)
Water
Chemicals with low corrosiveness
Saturated steam
Superheated steam, including CIP and SIP applications in the food industry
Industrial gases

The meters are rated for the following flow velocities:

From 0.3 to 9.0 m/s (1 to 29.5 ft/s) for liquids


From 3.0 to 80 m/s (9.8 to 262 ft/s) for gases and vapours. 1

1
DN15 - 3,0 to 45 m/s (9.8 to 148 ft/s)
DN25 - 3,0 to 70 m/s (9.8 to 230 ft/s)
If the danger of waterhammers can occur in steam net works appropriate condendsate
separators have to be installed.
If the danger of water cavitations can occur appropriate measures have to meet.

WARNING!
The operator himself bears the sole responsibillty for the intended use of the flow meter
regarding the suitability and the comision resistance of the used materials against the measured
fluid.
The manufacturer is not liable for any damage resulting from improper use or use for other than
the intended purpose.
Do not use any abrasive or highly viscous media > 10 cP.

INFORMATION!
The sensors are fabricated from stainless steel 316 L (1.4404) or Hastelloy C22.
In your project planning, please observe the data given in the corrosion tables.
The pressure-bearing parts have been designed and rated for stationary operation taking
account of maximum pressure and temperature.
External forces and moments, caused e.g. by pipe stresses, have not been considered thereby.

Primarily, volumetric flow and temperature are measured, with pressure measurement as an
option. From these parameters the flowmeter calculates the mass flow or standard volumetric
flow using pre-programmed density data and then issues the measured values via various
communication interfaces.

INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION 2

2.4 Dual seal


To cover the requirements of ANSI/ISA-12.27.01-2003 Requirements for Process Sealing
Between Electrical Systems and Flammable or Combustible Process Fluid Dual seal, a
membrane vent is integrated in the neck of the instrument. This vent works in the improbable
case of a leakage as an annunciation valve between the primary seal (Process) and secondary
seal (electronic compartment).

1 Annunciation valve (Membrane vent)

The sealing between the pick-up and the Flow tube is considered as the primary seal. Its
construction material is always the same as the Flow tube itself (e.g. Stainless steel 316L or
Hastelloy C22). Chemicals used for the process, going through the Flow tube, must be
compatible with the designated material.
By using the membrane vent as annunciation valve, all requirements for a dual seal device in
accordance to above mentioned standard, are fulfilled.

It protects the electronic compartment against access by process media, due to possible
leakages.

The leakage of the primary seal is visible.

Regular maintenance should be performed by the customer to ensure this Dual Seal notification
system is working properly or that there is no leak.
If a leakage is noticed:
Siemens customer service should be contacted for servicing or replacement of the meter.

3.4 Installation requirements


INFORMATION!
For accurate volumetric flow measurement the flowmeter needs a completely filled pipe and a
fully developed flow profile.
Please observe the instructions regarding inlet and outlet pipe runs as well as the installation
position.
In the case of vibrations on the piping choose the installation site in such a way that the
vibrations are at their lowest in transverse direction to the flowmeter.

CAUTION!
When installing the device in the piping, the following points must be observed:

Nominal diameter of connection pipe flange = nominal flange diameter of pipe!


Use flanges with smooth holes, e.g. welding neck flanges.
Carefully align the holes of the connecting flange and the flowmeter flange.
Check the compatibility of the gasket material with the process product.
Make sure that the gaskets are arranged concentrically. The flange gaskets must not project
into the pipe cross-section.
The flanges have to be concentric.
There must not be any pipe bends, valves, flaps or other internals in the immediate inlet run.
Sandwich-type flowmeters may only be installed using a centering ring.

4.3 Current output, electrical data


4.3.1 Power supply
INFORMATION!
The supply voltage has to be between 14 VDC and 36 VDC. This is based on the total resistance
of the measuring loop. To determine this, add up the resistances of each component in the
measuring loop (not including the flowmeter).

The required supply voltage can be calculated using the formula below:

Ub = Rtot * 22mA + 14V

where
UB = the minimum supply voltage and
Rtot = the total measuring loop resistance

INFORMATION!
The power supply has to be able to supply a minimum of 22 mA.

4.5 Protection category


The flowmeter meets all requirements of protection category IP 66/67.

DANGER!
After all servicing and maintenance work on the flowmeter, the specified protection category has
to be ensured again.

Figure 4-6: Cable feedthrough

Therefore it is essential to observe the following points:


Use only original gaskets. They must be clean and free of any damage. Defective gaskets have
to be replaced.
The electrical cables used must be undamaged and must comply with regulations.
The cables must be laid with a loop 1 upstream of the flowmeter to prevent water from getting
into the housing.
The cable glands 2 have to be tightened firmly.
Align the meter in such a way that the cable gland is never pointing up 3.
Close the unused cable glands using blanking plugs 4.
Do not remove the specified outer sheath from the cable gland.

Vortex flowmeters are used to measure the volumetric flow of gases, vapours and liquids at
completly filled pipes.
The measuring principle is based on the Karman vortex street. The measuring tube contains a
bluff body, behind which vortex shedding occurs. The frequency f of the vortex shedding is
proportional to the flow rate v. The nondimensional Strouhal number S describes the relationship
between vortex frequency f, width b of bluff body and the mean flow velocity v:

S .v
b

The vortex frequency is recorded at the sensor and evaluated at the converter.
