BRODIE Oval Flowmeter/Transmitter 9900 Series

The Brodie 9900 Series Oval Flowmeter/Transmitter with Smart Meter Manager™ (SMM) is a very high accuracy, positive displacement meter which utilizes microprocessor based electronics to provide multivariable flow computation and output for volumetric and mass measurement requirements. It is designed for use in the chemical, industrial, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and hydrocarbon process industries.

One of the most significant features of these meters is their ability to handle both low and high viscosity products with a low pressure drop across the meter. They are supplied in a compact, 3-piece design which uses both front and rear flanges instead of the closed-end body configuration found in traditional oval flowmeters. Available sizes are 1/2” through .

“Smart Meter Manager inside” best defines the Brodie 9900 Oval Flowmeter/Transmitter. Past products have only delivered simple square wave pulse outputs that represented raw unfactored meter pulses (K-Factors).

K-Factors require additional processing by a secondary piece of electronics to convert to engineering units or factored 4-20 mA analog output. The need for secondary electronics, additional wiring and power supplies can be eliminated by using the SMART METER MANAGER™. SMM is a multivariable flow computer that fits inside the standard Brodie UMB (Universal Mounting Box). Because the SMM only requires 4-20 mA Loop power, it hooks up as a simple 2-wire transmitter. The SMM expands the capability of the Oval to include factored 2-wire, 4-20 mA output, and with ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensator) the once simple K-Factor now represents both corrected volume and mass flow. This can be in the form of a 4-20 mA output, gross total and/or inventory total. In addition, transistor contacts provide scaled pulse outputs in both net and gross values. An additional contact provides an alarm output. This expanded capability is enhanced by HART? communications and the ability to use the standard 275 HART communicator.

Principle of operation
The Oval Flowmeter accurately measures liquid flow by using a slight pressure differential to rotate a pair of oval gears located within the measuring chamber. Each complete rotation of the gears (rotors) displaces a fixed amount of liquid from the inlet to the outlet of the meter in a continuous flow pattern. The alternate driving action of the gears provides a smooth rotation of almost constant torque without dead spots.
