Flotech Solutions Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS



Eldridge Products mass flowmeters launched in UK: Thermal mass gas flow measurement made simple.

With over 20 years experience in production and design of thermal mass flow metering solutions, Eldridge Products are at the forefront of their field in the USA. Now, for the first time, the benefits of their expertise and cutting edge technology are available in the UK through Flotech Solutions.

Thermal mass flow solutions are available to suit a wide range of applications and include in-line, insertion and multi-point sensors to suit duct diameters from 0.5'' to 60'' and above.

Standard material offerings include 316 stainless steel, Hastelloy and Monel.

A revolutionary offering, unique to Eldridge Products, is the new FAT 'Flow Averaging Tube' design.

Available in both insertion-type and in-line versions, this new design concept greatly simplifies installation requirements and provides a stable flow measurement under conditions where disturbances in the flow profile would defeat traditional thermal mass flow devices.

All sensor types are available with either ATEX EExd or safe-area transmitters in integral or remote-mounted versions.

A key advantage held by all Eldridge Products thermal mass flow meters is their advanced 'Master-Touch' transmitter technology, providing the user with a powerful feature set:

Exceptional accuracy of +/- [1% of reading + (0.5% of full scale + 0.2%/C)].

Turndown ratio of at least 100:1.

Repeatability of 0.2% Full Scale.

Easy to use pushbutton operator.

Up to four independent metering ranges, and the ability to switch between ranges without interrupting the measured process.

A wide variety of user-selectable engineering units that dynamically convert the flow rate and accumulated total to the new units.

Continuous time stamping of maximum and minimum flow values.

Selectable 4-20 mA or 0-5 VDC proportional output signal.

Two 1-Amp user-configurable relays can be set to provide limit alarms, perform batch counting functions or provide a pulse/ frequency output.

RS232/ 485 serial communications allow remote monitoring and configuration of the transmitter using Eldridge free issue 'EPICommunicator' PC software.

'LightWIRE' infrared communications capability for local control via PC with Communicator IR module or via Communicator II and III handheld IR remote control units.
