Flexible flow computer

The Uniflow-200 incorporates improved hardware and software capabilities to match the large variety of requirements for flow computer functionality in the markets. 

One single Uniflow-200 can measure eight fluid streams simultaneously so that it replaces eight single stream flow computers in one case. 

The Uniflow-200 provides the total solution for flow measurement as a stand-alone flow computer. Versatile communication protocols ensure easy integration with complex SCADA/HMI systems. 

The Uniflow-200 features:
•    Modular multi-run and multi-station design 
•    Eight meter runs 
•    Four station totalizations 
•    User configurable meter runs 

The computer has the EC-type examination certificate from the Hungarian Office of Measure (OMH) according to the Directive 2004/22/EC (MID) as a gas volume conversion device. 

The flow computer is OIML R117 compliant. It is certified for custody transfer measurement of liquids, like crude oil and refined products. 

The Uniflow-200 can be used for single or multi-run applications up to eight meter runs. In a multi-run system different types of fluids can be assigned to different meter runs. For example the operator can configure two runs for gas and three runs for liquid process media. 

In addition four virtual meter runs can be configured, as station totalizators. They can for example summarize flows in parallel meter runs, or can subtract one meter run flow from the other. Based on the input and output flows, calculation of efficiency for a given part of the technology can be implemented. 
Set up of material and energy balance calculations is equally easy. 

The Uniflow-200 is suitable for a gas engine CHP plant efficiency calculation as it can measure not only the gas, steam and water flows but the electrical power as well. 
Every meter run can be configured with different types of flow meters. 

The entire configuration can be done using the instrument display and keypad, or by means of a PC based parameter configuration software (U200ToolBox). The configuration is simple and straightforward. 

No special programming skill or knowledge of a special programming language is required. The operator simply selects the built-in features required for the particular application. 

Supported fluids: 
•    Hydrocarbons, natural gas, coke oven gas, blast furnace gas, crude oils, refined products,
