Yokogawa’s popular digitalYewflo vortex flowmeter is now available via a new quick delivery service in which standard versions will be delivered to the customer within just three days from placing the order.

“Yokogawa sets high value on customer service,” says Norbert Kita, Marketing Manager of Yokogawa’s Rota flowmeter plant in Wehr, Germany. “We have had to apply high standards to production logistics in order to realise three-day delivery covering more than 100,000 product variations to meet customer requirements.”

Yokogawa’s digitalYewflo incorporates a number of special features, including the fact that the measured value is produced at the shedder bar over the whole diameter of the meter tube. Because shedding vortices are measured throughout the whole length of the shedder bar, turbulences in the vortex path have less influence on the measuring accuracy, and the useful working range is maintained.

As a result, two devices may be flanged to each other directly so that redundant measurement – if high degrees of safety are required, for example – or bidirectional measuring is possible. The digitalYewflo has an accuracy of 0.75% of the measured value and features built-in DSP technology, giving it an advantage over other devices on the market.

“Reliability, easy configuration and a variety of possible applications have been responsible for making digitalYewflo one of the most widely used and user-friendly vortex meters in the refinery and chemical industries,” says Norbert Kita. “The fast-delivery option will help Yokogawa to build on this reputation, and underlines our commitment to this market.”
