You don't determine the maxiumum process conditions, the flow meter manufacturer does.

The flow meter manufacturer published those limitations as a specification in a data sheet or spec sheet or catalog page.

This is true for all instrumentation, not just Coriolis flow meters.

Find the spec sheet on the manufacturer's web site and read it.

Iris,

I have noticed your posts over the years, and you always answer only when the subject is in your area of expertise, and always with very pertinent advice. I admire and appreciate that quality!

A second good job here. Look at that posts to GA ratio - very impressive.

Obviously someone who doesn't need the thrill of the arguments on "troll" subjects that others do.

There are precisely two ways to establish the pressure and temperature limits:

1) follow the instructions on the manufacturers web page or literature sent with the flow probe/meter. Limits have already been established by them.

if you want different limits:

2) run up the pressure and/or temperature until you get a failure, either the probe dies, and no longer transmits a signal, or the pressure breaks the fittings and sends the probe flying (in which case it stops transmitting, typically).

That about covers your options.
