Exclusive: Air/gas flowmeter for small-line measurement

ST75 Series flowmeter from Fluid Components International (FCI) measures and monitors air or gas flows in line sizes from 0.25 in. to 2.0 in. (6-51 mm) with a single instrument and provides three outputs of mass flow rate, totalized flow, and media temperature.

ST75 Series flowmeter from Fluid Components International (FCI) measures and monitors air or gas flows in line sizes from 0.25 in. to 2.0 in. (6-51 mm) with a single instrument and provides three outputs of mass flow rate, totalized flow, and media temperature. Device combines a non-clogging, small-size thermal-dispersion sensing element with microprocessor-based electronics and precision calibration for fast measurement. No other sensors are needed, reducing installation complexity and maintenance. Flowmeter is available in nine line-size configurations in standard T-fittings, either NPT or tube, and is suited for low- and high-flow applications.

ST75 is intended for fuel and air flow measurement for boilers, burners, chillers, furnaces, heat-treating systems, turbine, and cogen power generators. It was developed, says FCI, as a low-cost, high-accuracy, small-line mass flow solution for processes flowing natural gas, methane, other fuel gases, combustion air and oxygen, nitrogen and all inert gases, and compressed air. The device provides

''We did a lot of market research before launching this product,'' says Eric Wible, engineering director, ''and believe this device helps fill out our product line by addressing small-line measurement.'' The product, continued Wible, offers a no-moving-parts design and non-clogging technology that gives users high accuracy and low-maintenance solution, yet is cost effective. Product shipment begins in late January 2005.
