"A flow computer is an electronic computer which implements algorithms using the analog and digital signals received from flow meters, temperature, pressure and density transmitters to which it is connected into volumes at base conditions. They are used for custody or fiscal transfer." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_computer)
Flow computers will:
- audit changes that have been made to any of the parameters required, turning the raw flow meter data into volumes
- record events and alarms related to the flow meter
- keep a running tally of the volume for each flow meter it monitors
- create a record of this volume on an hourly, daily, batch or monthly basis
Steam and Gas Flow Computer
The 415 Steam and Gas Flow Computer is ideal Gas Law using temperature and pressure correction, but where compressibility correction is not required.
The 425 can handle a wide range of flow applications where high accuracy and flexibility is required and will interface with most flowmeters.
The 212 has been designed to measure the energy consumed in hot water heating systems and chilled water cooling systems.
