their capability to detect both the mass flow and density of slurry streams is an advantage.

Since the appearance of the first commercial meters in the late 1970s, Coriolis flowmeters (see Figure 7.6.5) have become widely used. Their ability to measure mass flow directly with high accuracy and rangeability and to measure a variety of fluids makes Coriolis flowmeters the preferred flow measurement instrument for many applications. Coriolis flowmeters are also capable of measuring process fluid density and temperature. Since Coriolis flow measurement is a relatively new technology, many of the subtleties of its operation are still being investigated.
