In-situ calibration system eliminates de-install/re-install

October 12, 2007

With the new VeriCal In-Situ Calibration Verification System for the GF90 Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International, plant technicians can confirm flow measurement accuracy in only minutes without removing the meter from the pipe or process, saving time and money. The VeriCal In-Situ Calibration Verification System for the GF90 Flow Meter is an easy and low-cost way to confirm gas flow calibration accuracy to meet process validation, safety and environmental regulation requirements. Validating flow meter calibration has always been a labor intensive, costly and challenging exercise because the meters had to be pulled from the process, returned to the manufacturer or a calibration lab for testing and then shipped back for re-installation in the process. The VeriCal System is a specially manufactured and plumbed GF90 flow element with additional electronics to feed and measure a precise flow of gas from a nitrogen source.
