New Adaptive Sensing Technology for Thermal Mass Flow Meters

With the launch of its state-of- the-art ST80 Series thermal mass flow meter featuring breakthrough Adaptive Sensor Technology™ (AST™), the process industry’s air/gas flow measurement bar has been reset higher again for rangeability, accuracy, extended service life, reliability and application-matched solutions by Fluid Components International (FCI).

FCl’s innovative (AST™) thermal mass flow technology for the ST80 flow meters features an innovative hybrid sensor drive. This patent-pending measuring technique combines, for the first time, both of the industry’s highly proven constant power (CP) and constant temperature (CT) thermal dispersion sensing technologies in the same instrument. Complementing this new measurement drive technique are a choice of four different flow sensor element designs to further ensure best installed performance, including FCI’s new wet gas solution.

When operating in AST mode, the new ST80 flow meters measure in CT during start-up and through the lower flow ranges, and will then seamlessly shift into CP mode at mid-range and higher flow rates. The result is a best of both technologies performance level where the advanced ST80 meters deliver extremely fast response with extended measuring ranges, at low power consumption to maximize sensor reliability and reduce instrument energy expenses.
