Servomex has delivered a benchmark improvement to gas flow measurement and safety, with the launch of its Flowcube technology – a brand new sensor breakthrough which integrates into its acclaimed analyser range.

Developed by Servomex to address the current limitations in gas flow measurement, Flowcube is an advanced sensor which, for the first time, enables multiple system diagnostics and data trending to be ascertained from the flow measurement.

While gas flow has traditionally been measured separately within a sample system, compromises with this technique have meant plant operators have to rely on basic ‘flow or no flow’ status information which can only shut down a process when a potential error is detected.

Flowcube is the innovative and cost-effective solution to this industry problem: a sophisticated and highly sensitive transducer design, placed in-situ of a Servomex analyser, which enables both accurate trending of the overall sample system and the implementation of preventive rather than reactionary maintenance for minimum disruption to processes.

Flowcube’s ability to deliver accurate measurements means trending data is reported via an instrument’s digital communications, enabling users to monitor sample system performance over time to reduce the risk of system failure.

“Flowcube is a prime example of how Servomex applies our technical and analytical expertise to solving real customer issues,” said Chris Cottrell, Managing Director of Servomex.

“Not only does it address a fundamental customer problem with the previously inflexible flow measurement techniques offered by our industry, but the improved alarm system and system trending measurements offer new and immediate benefits to customer operations.”

Delivering low cost-of-ownership with just a simple calibration procedure required at a minimum of twelve months, Flowcube is certified intrinsically safe (EEx ia) for use in hazardous areas and with continually flammable gases, and forms part of the SERVOTOUGH Oxy SIL 2 assessment for use in Safety Integrated Systems.

Flowcube will be available immediately as an option for the SERVOPRO MultiExact multigas analyser and award-winning SERVOTOUGH Oxy oxygen analyser, with further compatibility for other Servomex analysers to follow.
