Designers of industrial machinery and equipment can expand flow and level sensing performance while gaining reliability and meeting product cost reduction goals with the 180 Series OEM Flow Sensors from Fluid Components International and AMS Instrumentation and Calibration . The 180 Series is a family of economical flow and level sensors that offers superior 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 provide switching, alarming, rate metering and totalizing of air, gases or liquids. These 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 and more.
Features of the 180 series flow meters include:
- Designed for service in line sizes from 6 to 130 mm, the 180 Series OEM flow sensors are ideal when embedded in new product designs, offered as optional upgrades or as replacements to existing sensors
- The flow sensors feature FCI’s precision thermal dispersion sensing technology
- These flow sensors combine wide flow and turndown ranges with high accuracy and repeatability to achieve dependable operation in a broad range of applications and conditions
- The 180 series flow sensors feature no-moving parts- The minimally invasive sensor design that is virtually maintenance-free
- Its two platinum RTD sensors are mounted in miniature thermowells, which are fully sealed to avoid contamination by the process fluid
- With a mean time between failure (MTBF) rating calculated to exceed 60,000 hours of service, the 180 series flow sensors deliver reliability and long-life that will minimise maintenance costs and increase customer satisfaction
- The 180 Series’ miniature sensor design ensures both fast-response and superior repeatability under all process conditions
- Additionally, because there is minimal pressure drop, 180 series flow sensors will save cost and increase their equipment’s efficiency by not having to boost line pressure to achieve needed flow rates
