Courtesy: Fluid ComponeFluid Components International's (FCI) ST98 Air/Gas Flow Meter is designed to measure the blended waste gas and natural gas necessary to keep co-gen electric power systems up and running. The ST98 is designed for industries such as electronics, oil and gas, chemical, power generation, food/beverage, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, steel, and wastewater treatment. The ST98 Flow Meter uses a thermal mass flow sensor to provide direct mass flow measurement without the need for additional temperature or pressure sensors or density calculating devices. The meter's insertion style configuration makes it simple to install in existing piping without cutting the pipe or welding, offering minimal interruption to plant operations. 

The ST98's thermal mass flow sensing element is constructed with two all-welded 316L stainless steel thermowells. It also features two matched platinum precision resistance temperature detectors (RTDs); one is heated relative to the reference RTD, and the temperature difference between the two is proportional to the process gas mass flow rate. The ST98 meter's transmitter converts the differential temperature signal to a standard 4 to 20 mA output signal.
