Compact Coriolis flow solutions receives NTEP custody transfer approval
Siemens Process Industries & Drives Division is pleased to announce the certification of its highly advanced Coriolis flow measurement solution, the SITRANS FCS200, with custody transfer approval by NTEP. The SITRANS FCS200 Coriolis flow sensor for compressed natural gas (CNG) applications is available in tube sizes of 3/8”, 1/2” and 1” with NTEP Custody Transfer (CT) approval for the 3/8” and 1/2” tube sizes
Coriolis flow meter solves critical fuel measurement concerns on the high seas
The FC410 provided a solution for a marine customer which required a way to accurately measure their fuel’s utilization and measure the fuels quality while at the same time preventing tampering with the fuel systems. They also required a solution that was compact to fit into areas where space was limited.
Siemens is pleased to announce the FC410 Coriolis flow meter has gained Marine approval for installation aboard ships and offshore facilities
The test requirements reflect the stringent conditions aboard ships and off-shore utilities, including high humidity, salt-laden air, and high vibration up to 4.0 g. The units under test also proved that they do not receive or create interference with the international ship location satellite signals. This is one of the most carefully controlled parts of ship security and is closely examined without compromise.
No special ordering or price adder is required to order the FC410 flow meter for marine applications, and no special preparation needs to be made prior to delivery or installation.

The SITRANS FC flow meter is used to measure liquids and gases. In addition to mass flow, the Coriolis mass flow meter, provides information on media density, fraction and temperature. Mass flow meters provide the most accurate flow measurement today with the highest accuracy and repeatability, 0.10% of mass, and rangeability from 100:1
One of the most compact flow meters on the market, the Sitrans FC430 features a short build-in length, suitable for liquid or gas applications within the process industry.The Sitrans FC430 is capable of optimizing a wide range of processes for increased productivity in industries such as chemical and pharmaceutical. The unit is ideal for multi-parameter measurement, and can be used in applications like fast filling and batch control.
The SITRANS FC410 flowmeter solution is the lightest and most compact Coriolis system worldwide – you can reduce skid size, fit multiple units into the tightest areas, simplify installation into both new and existing applications, and minimize costs. The fully digital generation of compact flowmeters is tailored for direct integration into machine control systems.
