Abstract: The paper describes an experimental study carried out for S- tube configurations made of copper and aluminum for an indigenously developed setup of Coriolis mass flow sensor integrated with virtual instrumentation. The material of the tube, location of sensors, L/D ratio and drive frequency have been found to be influencing design parameters on the performance of Coriolis mass flow meter. In the present study, water has been used as fluid and Copper (Cu) and Aluminium (Al) have been used as the tube material. The mass flowmeter has been calibrated through virtual instrumentation for a linear relationship between phase shift and mass flow rate. LabView (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) has been used for processing the vibration signal through Data Acquisitions and signal conditioning unit. The experimental results indicate that there exists almost a linear relationship between mass flow rate and the phase difference in vibration signals of two limbs of the S tube. The results also indicate the best sensor location for the optimum performance of the instrument.
