Fluid Components International (FCI) has introduced its latest MT100 series multipoint thermal mass flow meter.

The MT100 series is an insertion type, multipoint thermal flow meter specifically designed for large diameter pipes, such as stacks and flues, and large rectangular ducts, such as air feed intakes and HVAC. These large pipe/duct applications are difficult for ordinary flow meters because of distorted flow profiles and lack of straight-run that can lead to inaccurate and non-repeatable flow measurement.

FCI’s MT100 places up to eight flow sensing points in the flow stream and averages them which results in a highly accurate and repeatable flow rate measurement. Unlike other large pipe flow meters, the MT100 has no moving parts or orifices to foul or clog.

The MT100 meter sensors can be installed either across a mast or can be inserted at multiple points around the process line in a single plane. In large stack applications, this means that the instrument installation can be done at a single platform location to achieve a major cost savings over other technologies such as ultrasonic meter, which require installing transducers at precise offset angles.

All MT100 series flow meters have been independently tested and verified to meet and comply with IEC safety directives for EMC and LVD, and carry the CE marking.
