The product portfolio of Badger Meter USA expands with the introduction of the RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meter.
RCT1000 meters are especially suited to the precise measurement of high viscosity fluids, aggressive media and contaminated fluids as well as high density gases, while maintaining a wide turndown ratio. Typical applications for these mass flow meters will include filling or dosing oils, solvents and chemicals and measuring adhesives or binding materials, coatings and hardeners, dyes, vitamins and other additives.
Coriolis flow meters are true multi-variable instruments, providing simultaneous measurement of mass flow, density, temperature and volume flow. A feature of this design is the lack of internal moving parts, enabling the flow meter to experience little or no mechanical wear, resulting in a long operational life expectancy.
The RCT1000 can control equipment, such as valves and pumps with PID and batch control signals. The transmitter features a user-lock feature to prevent accidental activation as well as a local LCD display with optical buttons that allow the operator to navigate the display through the glass without opening the enclosure.
Network communications options for this model include EtherNet/IP, 4-20mA HART, Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU. The RCT1000 meters feature mass flow accuracy of -/+ 0.1 percent with a pressure range up to 2150 PSI (148 bar) and options for use in hazardous areas.
