Coriolis flow measurement
Leading accuracy. Fastest update rate.
Turn to the SITRANS F C Coriolis flowmeter family for reliable monitoring of liquids and gases in virtually all applications. Driven by powerful digital signal processing, our best-in-class flow systems provide extremely precise multiparameter measurements of direct mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate, temperature, density, and fraction flow such as Brix and Plato.
SITRANS F C Coriolis flowmeters
Designed for high-accuracy mass flow measurement with a low cost of ownership, SITRANS F C Coriolis flowmeters are ideal for demanding liquid and gas processes in every industry - from the smallest dose of chemicals to the massive quanities of bunker fuel pumped into a cargo ship.
How does a Coriolis flowmeter work?
The Coriolis effect is a driving force behind the exceptional performance of SITRANS F C flowmeters.
Two symmetrical metal tubes are set vibrating. This is ensured by a driver coil in the central section. The oscillation is measured precisely by two pickups - at the inlet and outlet sections. If liquids or gases now flow through the tubes, a phase shift occurs - as with a water hose. The pickups measure the spatial and temporal displacement. This determines the amount of liquid or gas flowing through the tubes.

What customers say about Siemens Coriolis flowmeters
Ensuring a smooth-running margarine recovery process
Since 1899, the Vandemoortele plant has been providing Belgium with high-value frozen bakery products, packed margarines and shortenings.
Vandemoortele is using the SITRANS FC430 Coriolis flowmeter to optimize the margarine melting process with high measurement accuracy and user-friendly operation.
“Collaboration has been outstanding, and Siemens has shown it is a constructive business partner. Moreover, the Siemens instrumentation team has been highly reactive, always available to provide additional information or support when needed.”
Cost-efficient carpet dyeing with Coriolis flow measurement
Lano Carpets decided to stop manufacturing its dyes in batches and switch to a continuous process using an inline mixer that produces the right color instantly.
A SITRANS FC410 Coriolis flowmeter was installed to measure the volumes of the coloring agents pumped into the machine, with control and supervision of the application handled by a SIMATIC WinCC system.
The Coriolis meter provides maximum precision for the pump control system, which plays a pivotal role in the mixing process.
Protecting our livestock – and ourselves – from harmful bacteria
Since 2002, Epitopix has discovered, developed, produced and sold vaccines that improve animal health and human food safety.
To optimize the vaccine production process, Epitopix uses a SITRANS FC430 flowmeter for monitoring the recirculation rate of oil and any resulting changes in density
“We are now much better equipped to optimize the time per volume processed and – most importantly – improve consistency from one finished batch of vaccine to the next.”
