Rugged and reliable flowmeter great for heavy industrial applications

February 11, 2009
The enhanced design expands the processes and applications where the unit can be installed. The manufacturer’s gas technology makes it the industry’s only multi-gas capable Industrial Mass Flow Controller, according to the manufacturer. The flowmeter has excellent accuracy (+/-1% of FS) and repeatability (+/-0.2% of FS) coupled with unsurpassed instrument stability resulting from a patented, inherently-linear design, advanced platinum sensor technology, and a valve that is strong, flexible and forgiving. It can communicate to a user workstation via RS-232, RS-485 or one of 4 analog signals. The flowmeter is the Industry’s only NEMA 6/IP67 rated mass flow controller conforming to rigorous water-resistant requirements. Rugged and reliable, it is well-suited to handle the most demanding challenges commonly found in heavy industrial applications such as those found in metals and ceramics manufacturing, combustion control systems, chemical processing, pharmaceutical/biotech, and food and beverage. Available in 316 stainless steel (ANSI or DIN) flange mounting for gas flow rates up to 1000 SLPM (pipe sizes up to 1-inch/25-mm).
