Engineers responsible for process and plant safety have learned that the ST80 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) is available with ATEX/IECEx approval.
The certification assures FCI’s international customers that the flowmeter has been independently certified for safe installation in potentially explosive conditions found in processes and in hazardous gas flow metering applications.
The independent third party testing and certified ratings of the ST80 are on the complete instrument, including the sensor element, electronics, and the enclosure, to assure its customers of the highest integrity and plant safety.
These approvals apply to both DC and AC powered versions of the ST80, as well as integral or remote mounting of the transmitter. The ST80 also carries FM and FMc Div. 1 approvals for the US and Canadian market.
The ST80 Flow Meter combines reliable, feature-rich electronics with the industry's most extensive selection of application-matched flow sensors and calibration for use in a wide range of demanding industrial process and plant air/gas flow meter applications.
With its no-moving parts thermal dispersion flow sensor, robust transmitter enclosure and a wide selection of process connections, the ST80 provides ease of installation, requires virtually no routine maintenance and achieves long service life.
The ST80 Series Meters are suitable for pipe diameters from 1 to 99 inches (25 to 2500 mm) and air/gas temperatures up to 454°C.
