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.
