Compressed Air Flow Meter

Why Compressed Air Flow measurement is important?

Most industrial facilities require compressed air, whether for basic operations like air tool operation or for more complex tasks like pneumatic control operation. Compressed air is one of the most expensive energy sources within a factory.

Compressed air is costlier than steam. Further, it is invisible when it leaks, unlike steam which is visible at the leakage points. And this leakage is also the source of wastage energy. It requires more electricity than any other sort of equipment, and it accounts for a significant portion of electricity consumption in any sector. So a Compressed air system may cost higher than water or steam when cannot be handled properly.

As a result, it’s much more critical to correctly quantify compressed airflow. In the industrial context, compressed air flow measurement provides a considerable opportunity to save money by lowering energy expenses. Manas Thermal Mass Flow Meter will help you assign expenditures, track total consumption, and increase plant productivity. You can do this by monitoring compressed air usage rates through various facility divisions. Thermal mass flow meters also called Compressed Air Flow Meter can provide both overall consumption and time tracking, which can aid in identifying high-consumption times.

How do you measure the flow rate of Compressed Air?

One of the popular Compressed Air Flowmeters is a Thermal Mass Flow Meter. Whenever a fluid of a certain temperature is passed over any substance hotter than the fluid, the heat of the hot substance is taken away because of forced convection by the fluid, and the temperature of that substance drops. This fall in temperature is related to the mass flow of the fluid passing over the substance. If one can measure the amount of heat taken away by the flowing fluid one can calculate the mass flow rate.

Which is the best Compressed Air Flow Meter?

The selection of the best Compressed Air Flow Meter depends on many factors. Thermal Mass Flow Meter is found to be one of the best flow meter types as it requires no pressure or temperature compensation and can detect gas mass flow directly. It is accurate, simple to install, and has no moving parts. It also has good rangeability, outstanding low flow sensitivity, and minimum pressure loss, making it the ideal flow solution provider for compressed natural gas measurement.
