The compressed air is taken from the atmosphere, which always contains a certain amount of water vapor. So we often use thermal mass flow meters or vortex flow meters as compressed air flow meters, Gas turbine flow meter rotor can be damaged by the water contained in the compressed air.
Compressed air, that is, air compressed by an
external force. The air is compressible, and the air that is compressed by the
air compressor to reduce its volume and increase the pressure is called
compressed air. Compressed air is an important source of power. Compared with
other energy sources, it has the following obvious characteristics: clear and
transparent, convenient to transport, no special harmful properties, no fire
hazard, no fear of overload, can work in many adverse environments, the air is everywhere
on the ground, so we can take it everywhere. Flow meter for air then is often needed by our customers.
Compressed Air Application
Thermal mass flow meter and vortex flow meter
is often been used as Compressed air flow meter, we supply digital gas flow meters, the flow
meters with digital display , 4-20mA output or pulse output, we can even have
RS485 communication for the compressed air flow sensors.
Compressed air flow meter Inquiry Sample:
Please Quote for vortex flow meter and turbine flow meter to measure the flow of compressed air in a 50mm line, pressure max 8 bar, temp 35DegC max
Our gas turbine flow meter is not a perfect choice to measure compressed air, because the air can bring the water on rotor and cause the turbine flow sensor broken down soon.
But vortex flow meter and thermal mass flow meter can do , see below quotation
