Fluid Components International (FCI) has released a next-generation series of multipoint thermal mass flow meters.
The “breakthrough” range of MT100 Series Air/Gas Flow Meters combines state-of-the-art electronics technology with application-proven precision flow sensors and has been designed for extremely demanding plant operating environments.
Devices in the range have been designed to provide temperature-compensated direct mass flow measurement of air and gases for large diameter pipes, stacks and ducts in power generation, petrochemical refining and other heavy industries.
Products in FCI’s thermal mass MT100 Series are available with up to eight flow sensing points to offer successful flow meter installation and performance. These sensors are inserted at various depths within a pipe or duct with their outputs then multiplexed and averaged to produce the flow rate within process lines.
The instruments can measure air/gas processes operating at up to 454°C and can measure flow rates from 0.25 to 1,000 (SFPS) with 100:1 turndown and an accuracy of over 0.75% of reading.
In large stack applications, the MT100’s sensors can be installed at a single platform, achieving significant cost savings over other technologies like ultrasonic meters.
In addition, its large touch-screen LCD readout provides comprehensive process information to users with both analogue and digital displays of flow rate and sensor status diagnostics.
