ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

Could anyone proivde the ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter!
If such a symbol does not exist, how about the ISA symbol for flow meters in general!


RE: ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

ISA has standards for drafting the sysmbols. I suggest you look at standard ISA 5.4 and 5.5.

If the symbols is not quite of what you are looking, I suggest call the manufacturer and asked them how other engineers have represented their Coriolis flowmeter.

In our office we use the venturi symbol as a flowmeter and then we indicate on the description of that particular flowmeter what it is. (magnetic, corilis, ultrasonic, etc., brand name and model number)


RE: ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

We could not find anything for coriolis in ISA standards.  We actually chose to show it similar to a 'U' shaped coriolis.  We put a U in the pipeline with a box around the U.

That is, not the letter U, but the shape of a U in the line itself, then draw a box around it.

RE: ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

Also look at ISA 5.1 for examples of P&ID symbols for multiple types of flowmeters.

RE: ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

I am a fan of writing the flow measurement technique in text next to the element.


RE: ISA symbol for Coriolis flow meter

You can also use the symbol for a magmeter and instead of putting an "M" in the box, put a "C". Then update your P&ID lead sheet in case someone doesn't understand.
