Engineers who need to reduce the energy cost of compressors should take a look at the ST50 Air Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI).
This unit helps to accurately measure compressed air and detect system inefficiencies or expensive leaks, FCI states. Thus, measurement can reduce the air consumption, helping manufacturing and process plants reduce air consumables and the energy required to support compressed air systems.
The ST50, featuring a rugged stainless steel sensing element with Hastelloy-C tips, is designed for endurance and maximum performance in outdoor and field installation conditions. Its electronics are housed in an all-aluminum, epoxy-coated enclosure that is NEMA 4X (IP66) rated and it withstands operational pressures up to 500 psig [34 bar (g)].
