Some of the advantages of Coriolis meter over other types of meters are follows:
- High accuracy range of + or -0.1% and acceptable repeatability
- Provides mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate, density and temperature (multivariable) in one meter.
- Very tolerant of the changes in the fluid quality and flow rate.
- Can be used as bidirectional meter
- Low maintenance
- No special mounting,
- No flow conditioning
- No straight pipe run requirements
- Zero moving parts.
The downside of it is a significant pressure drop across the meter.
