Measuring compressed air flows is the first step toward system optimisation by identifying areas of high compressed air use and leaks. And now Compressed Air Australia offers a range of digital flowmeters that can be installed on compressed air piping while it is still under pressure.
By eliminating the need to isolate and remove pressure from the pipe, Exair Hot Tap digital flowmeters reduce installation time while maintaining safety. The flowmeters incorporate two valves that the measuring probes pass through. A sound muffler that also collects chips from the drilling process stops installation debris from entering the airstream and minimises noise exposure.
Each meter ships with all the hardware and tools needed for installation including drill bit, drill guide, chip capturing muffler, and hex wrenches. The Hot Tap feature is available on 2-8in (51-203mm) flowmeters for fitting on schedule 40 iron pipe and Type L copper pipe. They are CE and RoHS compliant and can also be ordered for schedule 80 or 10S pipe.
The meters display airflow values on a bright LED screen, with optional data logger to capture and manipulate the data, or with wireless capability to transmit the data securely over a wireless network. Airflow values are expressed in standard cubic feet per minute or cubic meters per hour.
