Dual Averaging Flow Meter
The new ST102A Air/Gas Thermal Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) features an advanced dual-element averaging system, improving installation repeatability and accuracy for larger diameter pipes and ducts. The flow meter’s graphical, multivariable, backlit LCD display/readout brings new meaning to the term “process information”. It provides comprehensive information with continuous display of all process measurements and alarm status, and the ability to interrogate for service diagnostics. The new meter has a simple, economical dual-element averaging system. Each flow element can be independently configured for insertion length and process connection to allow installation flexibility. The flow transmitter also provides independent information for each flow element, saving time when performing service checks. The user-friendly ST100 Series Flow Meter stores up to five unique calibration groups to accommodate broad flow ranges, differing mixtures of the same gas and multiple gases, and obtains up to 1000:1 turndown. Also standard is an on-board data logger with an easily accessible, removable 2-GB micro-SD memory card capable of storing 21 million readings.
