The application of Foxboro CFT50 Digital Coriolis Flowmeter to improve production efficiencies and to reduce cost by major U.S polyethylene producer is discussed. The unit's dual digital processing system controls the meter drive sequence to provide uninterrupted flow tube operation and its second system processes the measurement data from the Coriolis flow tube, which assures precise fluid measurements. The flow tube drive signal is synthesized digitally to gives good control of the meter in difficult conditions. It also responds to a step change in flow within 25 ms with algorithms to correct the effects of two-phase flow.
