LOW-ΔP-FLOWF-103DI

Thermal Mass Flow Meters for low pressure drop or corrosive gas applications, industrial style

Bronkhorst® model F-103DI Mass Flow Meters (MFMs) are suited for precise measurement of flow ranges between 0,8…40 ln/min and 3…150 ln/min (N2-equivalent). The instruments are particularly suited for corrosive gases or applications with very low differential pressure (∆P). Compared to conventional instruments, LOW-∆P-FLOW meters have larger flow channels to minimize the risk of clogging, facilitate cleaning and purging, and cause lower pressure drop (the sensor only requires 0,5 to 5 mbar). This model is of rugged design (IP65) for use in industrial environments or even Zone 2 hazardous areas, with optional ATEX Cat. 3 or FM Class I, Div. 2 approval.

The integrated digital pc-board provides signal and fieldbus conversion as well as PID controller functionality for optional mass flow control by means of a (separately mounted) control valve. In addition to the standard RS232 output the instruments also offer analog I/O. As an option, an on-board interface can be mounted to provide CANopen®, DeviceNet™, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, Modbus or FLOW-BUS protocols.
