Coriolis meters measure the mass flowrate of a stream by making use of the Coriolis effect.
How it Works
Fluid flows through a tube which is forced to vibrate in a harmonic oscillation by an external driver. The tube can be straight or ‘U’ shaped.
The momentum of the fluid causes the already-oscillating tube to vibrate in a slightly different way. This change in the mode of vibration is proportional to the mass flow rate of the fluid flowing through the tube and can be measured with external sensorsSensors are devices that measure physical properties such as methane concentration, temperature, or radiance. For measuring flare efficiency the sensor must be capable of measuring methane and in some cases…. The mass flow rate of the fluid can then be determined.

Coriolis (Mass) flow meters introduce an acceleration into a flowing stream and measure mass flow by detecting the resulting change in angular momentum, this is known as a Coriolis effect.
