FLOW METERS SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF LARGE PIPE INSTALLATIONS

Claimed to set a new standard in performance accuracy, reliability, ease of use and value, FCI’s MT100 Series air/gas flow meters combine state-of-art electronics technology with application-proven precision flow sensors in a rugged package designed for the most demanding plant operating environments.

These flow meters provide temperature-compensated direct mass flow measurement of air and gases for precise, repeatable measurement with low maintenance requirements in large diameter pipes, stacks and rectangular duct installations.

In order to overcome the problems traditionally associated with flow measurement in large diameter pipes and ducts the MT100 Series meters are available with two to eight flow rate sensing points. Multiple sensors are inserted at various depths within a pipe or duct and their outputs are multiplexed and averaged to produce the flow rate within the process line.

The sensors can be installed either across a mast or can be inserted at multiple points around the process line in a single plane. In large stack applications, this means that the instrument installation can be done at a single platform location to achieve a major cost savings over other technologies such as ultrasonic meters, which require installing transducers at precise offset angles.

The MT100 Series flow meters can measure flow rates over a wide range from 0.07 to 305NMPS with 100:1 turndown and with excellent accuracy of ± 0.75% of reading, ± 0.5% of full scale. They also provide temperature measurement capability from -45 to +454°C, with an accuracy of ±1.1°C.

The transmitter comes with an extensive choice of output options to interface with virtually any DCS, PLC, SCADA, or recorder. And the large clear colour touch-screen LCD provides comprehensive process information to users with both analogue and digital displays of flow rate, temperature and totalised flow, a user time-base selectable strip-chart of flow rate and sensor status diagnostics.
