FCI's VeriCalTM In-Situ calibration verification system provides you the ability to perform periodic field validation and verification of your FCI flow meter's measuring performance without extracting the meter from the pipe or process. Calibration is complete in minutes without removing the meter from the pipe or process. In the past, flow meters had to endure the cost and hassle of being pulled from the process, then returned to the manufacturer or a calibration lab for testing. and then shipped back for re-installation.

The FCI ST100 is quickly becoming the industry benchmark in process and plant air/gas flow measurement. Designed for rugged industrial processes and plants, ST100 Flow Meters include service up to 850oF (454oC) and are available with both integral and remote (up to 1000 feet [300 meters]) electronics versions. The ST100 is agency approved for hazardous environments, including the entire instrument, the transmitter and the rugged, NEMA 4X/IP67 rated enclosure. Instrument approvals in addition to SIL-1 include ATEX, IECEx, FM and FMc.

Now, with the VeriCalTM In-Situ Calibration Verification System with the ST100 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meter, routine flow meter calibration doesn’t require pulling the meter, installing a spare and paying a lab fee. 

The video below demonstration illustrates the VeriCalTM procedure and ease of sensor installation. Validate performance on-site in minutes and comply with ISO and local regulations for periodic calibration verification with FCI's In-Situ Flow Meter Calibration Solution.
