Armored Variable Area Flowmeter

May 6, 2013

Brooks Instrument MT3809 variable area flowmeterThe MT3809 armored variable area (VA) flowmeter from Brooks Instrument provides unprecedented flexibility regardless of application, process configuration or flowrate. It works accurately across a vast range of operating temperatures -- from -196 C to 420 C (-320 F to 780 F) -- and at pressures to 1380 bar (20K psi). Even in demanding applications measuring gases, liquids and steam, the MT3809 delivers 2% full-scale/1.6 VDI accuracy. The explosion-proof housing meets the most stringent hazardous-area classifications worldwide, and a flameproof option is available for IIC/Class 1 Division 1 locations. Rugged stainless steel construction and weldneck flanges provide long-term durability in all configurations. No back pressure is needed for gas applications, and ASME sealing specifications are met with a standard gasket, eliminating the cost of custom gaskets.
