8800 CriticalProcess™ Vortex Flowmeter

The Rosemount CriticalProcess™ Vortex is designed to increase plantavailability and enhance overall safety.  This feature allows users toverify the performance of the Vortex sensor while providing an added level ofsafety on critical applications.

The CriticalProcess™ Vortex provides:

  • A unique design thatisolates the Vortex sensor from the process

  • The ability for onlinemaintenance of the Vortex sensor

  • A way to eliminateunnecessary process shutdowns, increasing availability without requiring bypasspiping

The Vortex sensor in the Rosemount 8800D Vortex Flowmeter is isolatedfrom the process making it possible to maintain the performance of the sensoronline, greatly increasing process availability.  Sensor maintenance canbe costly with traditional Vortex flowmeters. Unlike the 8800D, wetted Vortexsensor designs require that the process be shutdown or the meter bypassed toperform Vortex sensor maintenance.  The CriticalProcess™ Vortex eliminatesthis requirement, increasing availability and enhancing overall safety.

Features & Benefit

On-line Flowmeter Maintenance Capability


Increase Availability

The Vortex sensor in the Rosemount 8800D Vortex Flowmeter is isolated from the process making it possible to maintain the performance of the sensor online, greatly increasing process availability. Vortex sensor maintenance can be costly on traditional vortex meters where users are required to shutdown or bypass their process. The CriticalProcess™ Vortex enhances the user's ability to maintain the Rosemount 8800D Vortex flowmeter on-line. This eliminates the need for a shutdown or additional piping to bypass the process around the flowmeter.

The CriticalProcess™ Vortex enhances safety by providing a method to verify plant personnel will not be exposed to process fluids while performing on-line maintenance and troubleshooting on the Rosemount 8800D Vortex Flowmeter.
