Required Information for Sizing the Correct Thermal Mass Flow Meter for Your Application

Thermal mass flow meterThermal mass flow meters offer accurate, repeatable, and dependable measurements of liquids and gases for both industrial and environmental processes.  They are used in a multitude of applications including landfills, GHG emissions, flare gas, natural gas measurement, pollution control, petrochemical, chemical processing, measuring hydrogen gas, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor manufacturing, sub-metering of clean process gases, and power / utility.

When sizing a thermal mass flow meter, the following information is required in determining the correct flow meter for your application:
  1. Fluid
  2. Insertion or inline meter
  3. Minimum and maximum line pressure
  4. Minimum and maximum flow rate
  5. Minimum and maximum fluid temperature
  6. Pipe diameter, schedule and material
  7. Standard, sanitary or ultra-high purity finish
  8. Desired process connections
  9. Flow direction
  10. Available power for transmitter
  11. Transmitter output
Once these parameters are determined, a mass flow meter may be properly specified for your application. To be safe the instrument will perform safely and without problem, it is highly recommended you consult with a process instrumentation expert for assistance.
