Bailey Controls Completes Installation Of N e w Flow Calibration Laboratory

Bailey Controls has installed a new flow calibration laboratory for its lines of vortex and mass flowmeters.

The fully automated facility is located at the company's manufacturing center in Wickliffe, Ohio.

It uses Bailey Network 90® process control system technology to calibrate meters to an accuracy specification of ±.25 percent for mass/ flow and ± 1 percent on vortex.

The Bailey type VF Vortex Shedding Flowmeter features advanced fiber-optic technology for measuring volumetric flow of liquids, gases and steam. The device is suitable for high-temperature applications (up to 662° F) and is constructed of corrosion resistant materials. The type VF is available in three pressure/ temperature ANSI classes: 150, 300, and 600.

Bailey's Direct Mass Flowmeter measures flow rate up to 1,200 lb/ minute and densities up to 3.2 g/cc of liquids and slurries. A digital electronics package allows the user to troubleshoot and configure the flowmeter's transmitter from remote locations.

The new calibration laboratory has reduced calibration lead time from two weeks to two days, and provides a detailed calibration data sheet to be included in the product shipment.

Bailey Controls is a division of Babcock & Wilcox, and a leading worldwide supplier of instrumentation, controls, and computer systems for power generation, process automation and energy management in the petrochemical, electric utility and process industries. Babcock & Wilcox is a major operating unit of McDermott Incorporated, a subsidiary of McDermott International, Inc.
