Using Limpet Heaters to Keep Mass Flow Meters from Viscous Blockages
An AlphaLimpet heating system fitted to a Coriolis mass flow meter.
There are a number of types of flow meter used in industrial applications, including Coriolis meters and electromagnetic flow meters. Limpets can be fitted onto almost every type of flow meter that requires heat to prevent cool down of product during stationary batching cycles.
Where other technologies may struggle to impart heat or have reduced lifecycle due to deterioration or burn out, Limpet heaters provide accurate temperature control where it is needed by using custom designed, profiled aluminium adaptor blocks that fit snugly to the meter body and provide a heat reservoir.
Meters can be heated using several different types of Limpet:
Limpet heaters can be used to heat most brands of mass flow meter, including those produced by ABB, Burkert,Bronkhorst, Emerson (Micro Motion), Endress + Hauser, Grayco, Kobold, Krohne, Oval, Riels, Siemens, Sierra, and Yokogawa.
An AlphaLimpet heating system fitted to a Coriolis mass flow meter. Note the two 'saddle' adaptor blocks that are used to transmit heat from the AlphaLimpet into the meter body.
Although the system was not insulated, the heating system worked perfectly, despite the relatively high temperature required.
