Air is, of course, one of the most regularly measured gases, and your choice of compressed air flow meter for air flow measurement application will be determined by the working pressure, temperature, flow range and the accuracy you require.
Within the hire fleet, Flowhire have Thermal mass, Coriolis, and Vortex flow meters, the most suitable flowmeter would depend on your application. Vortex flowmeters are ideal for high velocities, however, being a volumetric device additional instrumentation such as pressure and temperature transmitters and flow computer are required for mass or corrected volume flow. Flowhire can supply pre-configured systems to include this instrumentation to ensure accurate measurement and simple installation. For low flow rates in applications such as leak detection thermal mass flowmeters may be better suited due to their ability to measure very low velocities and minimal pressure drop. For more specialist flow measurement applications including high pressure air or gas flows, where the installation may be in an ATEX classified hazardous area or where the ultimate accuracy is required then a Coriolis mass flow meter may be the ideal solution. Flowhire have the latest generation high pressure Promass O flowmeters from Endress and Hauser, the Promass O are suitable for air or compressed gas measurement at pressures up to 258 bar and being ATEX certified they can be used in zone 1 or zone 2 hazardous areas.
Whatever your application the best place to start is always to contact us so our expert team can talk through your application with you and advise on the best air flow meter to hire for your needs.
As always with Flowhire, whichever flow meter you choose will be set up for you prior to despatch and can be teamed with flow loggers and other equipment, depending on type.
