Designers of industrial machinery and equipment can expand flow and level sensing performance while gaining reliability and meeting product cost reduction goals with Fluid Components International’s 180 series OEM Flow Sensors, available from AMS Instrumentation and Calibration .
The 180 series of flow sensors is a family of economical flow and level sensors that provide high accuracy, fast response and long-term reliability using FCI’s thermal dispersion sensor technology to fit a wide range of OEM applications.
The new-generation 180 Series OEM flow sensors have been developed for use in equipment or machinery that requires flow or level sensing as part of its control system loop or as part of its operating system. The 180 series of OEM flow sensors provide switching, alarming, rate metering and totalising of air, gases or liquids. The flow sensors are ideal for:
- Fuel and air feed lines
- Additive dispensing control
- Oil and lubricant circulation
- Pump protection circuits
- Cooling system controls
- Over/under flow limit switches
The 180 series of flow meters have no moving parts and a minimally invasive sensor design that is virtually maintenance-free. The two platinum RTD sensors are mounted in miniature thermowells that are fully sealed, avoiding contamination by the process fluid. With a mean time between failure (MTBF) rating calculated to exceed 60,000 hours of service, the 180 series of flow sensors delivers reliability and long-life that will increase customer satisfaction and minimise maintenance costs.
The miniature sensor design of the 180 series of flow sensors ensures fast-response and superior repeatability under all process conditions.
In addition, because there is minimal pressure drop, 180 Series OEMs will save cost and increase their equipment’s efficiency by not having to boost line pressure to achieve needed flow rates.
FCI offers more than 30 different standard designs and can also create custom designs to any OEM specifications. FCI can engineer custom flow or level sensors to meet requirements for any process media, line size, installation environment, temperature, pressure, calibration, and output signals.
Various sensor designs comply with industry standards, including UL, CE, FM, ATEX, CSA, IECeX and more. FCI is a registered and certified ISO9001 manufacturer.
