Blythewood, SC, United States, 2011/01/03 - Spirax Sarco, Inc.’s MassTracker Insertion Turbine Flow Meter has been selected as a Breakthrough Product of 2010 by Processing Magazine.
This award is presented each year to the manufacturing facilities where their products, services, and/or technologies have made significant contributions in the processing industries within the last year, and are expected to greatly impact the industry in the future.
Spirax Sarco first introduced the MassTracker in January 2010. This versatile instrument combines measurement of mass or volumetric flow, density, temperature, and pressure in one instrument. Typical applications include flow monitoring of steam and natural gas for fiscal or load control, combustion air, flue gas for environmental compliance, heat content calculations for chilled water and measurement of a variety of other liquids in line sizes from 3 in. to 80 in. (75 mm to 2000 mm).
Hot-tappability makes possible installation and service without process shutdown. The Mass Tracker produces a negligible pressure drop, reducing energy and operating costs.
The MassTracker low-mass rotor design is fabricated from one solid block of stainless steel, with no welded joints. There are six field-installable cartridges with different turbine pitches and NIST traceability. This field configuration versatility, plus a wide 25:1 turndown, enables the flow meter to match flow rate precisely.
The MassTracker flow computer incorporates all the “smarts” in a single housing for calculating and transmitting a true, density-compensated mass flow signal. Pending approvals include FM Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D; Classes II, III, Division 2, Groups F and G, NEMA 4X locations, ATEX and CE.
In picking products for the award, judges examine their significance and uniqueness in the process industries, along with associated innovative technologies and range of application. The award is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious given in the process industries. The “Breakthrough Products of the Year” are featured in the December 2010 issue.
