FLEXIM showcases new explosion-proof flowmeter for liquids, gases and steam

news item image
FLEXIM’s FLUXUS F/G831 has been approved for operation in ATEX Zone 1 explosive areas. The flow measurement is carried out non-intrusively with ultrasonic transducers mounted on the outside of the pipe.
The device has two intrinsically safe process inputs for connecting pressure and temperature sensors.
This allows the transmitter to directly determine the output mass flow or standard volumetric flow rate.
The new series of instruments has been specially developed for demanding measurement tasks in challenging environments.
Inside the hermetically sealed enclosure, a digital signal processor ensures the highest measurement performance.
The integrated disturbance correction ensures good measuring accuracy even at unfavourable measuring points.
Furthermore, the high-performance processor supports fast switching between two measuring channels.
Synchronised channel averaging enables immediate compensation of measured value fluctuations resulting from disturbances of the flow profile due to turbulence or difficult inlet conditions.
As with all FLUXUS series flowmeters, the FLUXUS F/G831 ultrasonic transducers are carefully paired at the factory and have temperature compensation according to ANSI/ASME MFC 5M.
At FLEXIM, transmitters and transducers are calibrated independently of each other in a patented process and without the influence of application-related disturbances. This always ensures the highest measuring accuracy in the field, regardless of the application the measuring system is used for.
