Thermal flowmeter supports compressed-air systems
FS10i Series compressed-air flowmeters (photo) helps users improve productivity by measuring accurately and quickly detecting system leaks, which improves overall process quality while simultaneously reducing system energy costs. The compact FS10i flowmeter series measures the flowrate of compressed air, air and natural gas. They are accurate to±1.5% of reading;±0.5% of full scale; with repeatability of±0.5% of reading; and have a response time of 4 s. They are SIL-2 rated for safety instrumented system (SIS) critical processes. Providing precise direct mass-flow measurement, the FS10i flowmeters require no additional pressure or temperature sensors or other components to infer flow measurement. Their sealed and no-moving-parts sensor does not foul or clog, and requires no routine maintenance, which ensures years of trouble-free, continuous operation. — Fluid Components International, San Marcos, Calif.
