Series 9700MPNH Flow Averaging Tube (FAT) Thermal Mass Flow Meter

Inline style thermal mass flow meters include a flow section that is usually specified to match the user’s flow conduit and is then plumbed directly into the process line. This design has the sensing elements mounted directly on the flow section for exposure to the process gas. Our inline style flow averaging thermal mass flow meters are available in sizes from 2″ pipe through 4″ pipe and are provided with flanged end configurations, as required. Pipe sizes in excess of 4″ typically require insertion style thermal mass flow meters.

Description

Master-Touch™ Series 9700MPNH Flow Meters

MPNH Series flow meters are approved for use in ordinary locations (see specifications)

Inline style thermal mass flow meters include a flow section that is usually specified to match the user’s flow conduit and is then plumbed directly into the process line. This design has the sensing elements mounted directly on the flow section for exposure to the process gas. Our inline style flow averaging thermal mass flow meters are available in sizes from 2″ pipe through 4″ pipe and are provided with flanged end configurations, as required. Pipe sizes in excess of 4″ typically require insertion style thermal mass flow meters.

Integral style thermal mass flow meters have all of the electrical components and connections located within one enclosure. This enclosure may be rated for either hazardous environments (MP Series) or for ordinary, non-hazardous environments (MPNH Series), as necessary. The enclosure is mounted directly to the inline flow section or to the insertion probe assembly at the point of measurement. The enclosure includes the all of the electrical connections as well as the linearizing electronics and the display/keypad assembly.

Our patented Flow Averaging Tubes™ (FAT™) use the principle of convective heat transfer to directly measure mass flow, and are well suited to most applications with limited available straight run. In many installations, the up-stream straight run can be reduced to three diameters. The probe has a number of large diameter inlet ports along the length of the upstream impact surface. The pressure at each inlet port is averaged inside the tube to create the axial flow through the tube and across our flow sensor. The gas returns to the main flow stream through the ports located near the sensing elements. Anomalies in the actual flow profile or installations in non-circular ducts may still some require minor adjustment to achieve the best accuracy.

Product Details

Below is an example of our FAT installations for those “Hard to get” up stream distances and unknown profiles where you still need cross sectional coverage.
