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

Description: 

The CIDRA Corporation SONARtracTM Model VF & GVF-100 (Volumetric Flow and Gas Volume Fraction) System is a clamp-on process monitoring system used to measure 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 SONARtracTM 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 SONARtracTM VF & GVF-100 consists of a common transmitter and sensor heads sized for different pipe diameters. SONARtracTM 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 SONARtracTM Model VF & GVF-100 Monitoring System. In all cases, local safety and operating practices take precedence over the information contained within this document.
