Accurate Mass Measurement of Natural Gas Flow, Air flow and Other Gases

Fox Flowmeter featuredA Thermal Mass Flow Meter is an instrument used to measure linear, nonlinear, mass or volumetric flow rate of a liquid or a gas.

Fox Flow Meters use a Constant Temperature Differential (?T) technology. The sensor has two elements. The Reference RTD measures the gas temperature. The electronics heats the Heated Element above the gas temperature. It is the job of the electronics to maintain a constant ?T between the gas temperature and the Heated Element. As mass flow increases, the increased numbers of gas molecules remove more heat from the Heated Element.

The electronics senses this temperature reduction and adds additional power to the heated element in order to maintain a constant ?T. The amount of power delivered to the Heated Element is proportional to the mass flow rate. The microprocessor then linearizes this signal to deliver a linear output.

Performance Specs

Flow Accuracy:

± 1% of reading ± 0.2 % of full scale*
* Point velocity for insertion flowmeters. Fox recommends a minimum of 15 diameters of straight pipe upstream of the flowmeter and 10 diameters downstream for insertion flowmeters. Fox recommends a minimum of 8 diameters of straight pipe upstream of the flowmeter and 4 diameters downstream for inline flowmeters.

Flow Repeatability:
± 0.2% of full scale

Flow Response Time:
0.9 seconds (one time constant)

Temperature Accuracy:
± 1.8° F (± 1.0° C) over -40 to 250° F (-40 to 121° C); ± 3.6° F (± 2.0° C) over 250 to 650° F (121 to 343° C). Minimum velocity 60 SFPM.a

 


 

Operating Specs

Units of Measurement:

Insertion Flowmeter:
Note: Pressure ratings stated for temperature of 100°F (38°C).

Temperature:
Std sensor: -40 to 250°F (-40 to 121°C)
HS Sensor: 32 to 400°F (0 to 204°C)
HT Sensor: 32 to 650°F (0 to 343°C)
Enclosure: -40 to 158°F (-40 to 70°C) without display, 32 to 140°F, (0 to 60°C) with display

Input Power:
24 VDC, ± 10%, 0.75 amp standard

Output:
Two isolated 4 to 20 mA outputs (1 for flow & 1 for temperature); isolated pulse output 0 to 100Hz, 10 volts p/p for flow (the pulse output can be used as an isolated solid state output for alarms)
RS232 for connecting a Palm Handheld or computer; RS422/ RS485-Modbus, Profibus-DP, DeviceNet or Ethernet

Dimensional

Insertion Flowmeters:

Probe diameter: 1/2"

Equation for selecting Insertion Flowmeter probe length:

Probe length = ½ pipe ID (in inches) + 2" + thickness of insulation (if any) + dimension of retractor (if supplied). Round up to the next standard probe length available.
