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