Coriolis Mass Flow Meter

Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.

Coriolis meters measure the actual mass flow moving though a pipe (pounds and kilograms), and thus are resistant to the external influences that can cause dramatic offsets in velocity-based flow measurement systems.
