Established in 1995, VorTek Instruments manufactures precision multivariable flowmeters for the measurement of liquid, gas, steam and energy consumption. VorTek Instruments’ Pro-V™ multivariable vortex flowmeters utilize three primary sensing elements: a vortex shedding velocity sensor, an RTD temperature sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer to measure the mass flow rate of gases, liquids and steam. Because the Pro-V™ is able to measure all process variables within a single device it provides exceptional accuracy, simplifies system design and reduces installation costs.

TurboPro Insertion Style Turbine Meters

The Model Pro-T™ multivariable turbine flow meters utilize three primary sensing elements– a turbine sensor, an RTD temperature sensor, and a solid-state pressure transducer––to measure the mass flow rate of gases, liquids and steam. Additionally rotors are interchangeable, making this meter a good choice for installations with step changes in seasonal flow rates. They are easily installed with flanged or Male NPT process connections in any pipe size of two-inches and greater.
