HD Series VF-100 and GVF-100 Monitoring System Installation - Pre-August 2007 Systems

Description: 

The CIDRA Corporation SONARtrac® Model HD VF & GVF-100 (High Dispersion Volumetric Flow and Gas Volume Fraction) System ) is used to provide accurate and reliable process measurements for difficult to characterize solid/liquid mixtures and challenging sand/rock slurry flows with varying velocities and densities within process pipes The HD VF & GVF-100 system measures the volumetric flow rate and the amount of entrained air / gas (also referred to as gas volume fraction or GVF) contained in a fluid within process pipes on a realtime basis. The SONARtrac® HD VF & GVF-100 utilizes patented array processing techniques to listen to and interpret the flow turbulence generated by fluid flow and the acoustic field generated by machinery, piping and flow present in process flow. The clamp-on design eliminates the need for cutting pipe or interrupting process flow during installation.

The SONARtrac® HD VF & GVF-100 consists of a common transmitter and sensor heads sized for different pipe diameters. SONARtrac® flow and entrained gas meters certified for use in hazardous areas are rated for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, and D environments (per US and Canadian standards).

This manual covers the basic installation and setup of the SONARtrac® Model HD VF & GVF-100 Monitoring System. In all cases, local safety and operating practices take precedence over the information contained within this document.
