The X-Stream Air Flow Meter represents a radical departure from conventional air flow meter designs, providing easy installation, low cost and accurate of the probes in the air stream.
The air flow meter clamps around a pipe with its probes projecting into the pipe through drilled holes. The low cost of the air flow meter makes it ideal for installation at points throughout the air distribution system to track valuable compressed air and assess system operation.
The X-Stream Air Flow Meter clamps onto a pipe, with two sensing probes projecting into the pipe through 3/16" drilled holes. It seals directly into the pipe; no cutting or welding is required for installation. Because each air flow meter is made and calibrated for a specific size of pipe, the digital display indicates the air flow directly, with no setup or adjustment.
The air flow meter measures airflow by maintaining one probe warmer than the other. It calculates the mass velocity from the amount of heat required and then calculates airflow on basis of pipe area. The flow rate, in SCFM, is shown on a large 4 digit display; a 4-20 mA output and pulse output permit remote display, totalizing and data collection. Metric display is optional.
