Spirax Sarco's Gilflo ILVA flowmeter can be installed close to pipe bends and valves
Spirax Sarco's Gilflo ILVA flowmeter with compact stem accessory is designed for saturated steam, liquid and gas applications in line sizes of 10 and 12 inches. The Gilflo ILVA flowmeter system is comprised of four individual pieces: an ILVA, a compact stem, a manifold and Scanner 2000 steam mass flow transmitter.
The Gilflo ILVA flowmeter range is engineered with a specially profiled cone that helps to reshape and flatten the flow stream profile just before the measurement point. Therefore, long straight runs are not needed. The wafer design means that its installed length is much shorter than almost any other technology, so it can be installed close to pipe bends, valves or other components that would prevent other types of flowmeters being fitted.
The Gilflo ILVA is able to measure from full flow down to very low flowrates, allowing for measurement over a flow range turndown of 100:1.
