New SIL-2 Rated FCI FS10i Flow Meters Are Perfect Fit for Air, Compressed Air & Natural Gas Flow Measurement
San Marcos, CA—September 20, 2021—As the only SIL-2 rated thermal flow meters in their class, the new FS10i Flow Meter Series from Fluid Components International (FCI) offers multiple advantages to process and plant engineers responsible for the accurate measurement of air, compressed air and natural gas in a wide array of applications in industrial and commercial plant operations to improve productivity and quality while reducing energy and other costs at the same time.
The FS10i Flow Meter Series is an economical and easy to install solution to measure the flow rate of air and natural gas. Its small, compact size, plug-in wiring and inline or insertion style threaded connection into the piping ensures quick and effective installation. The versatile FS10i Flow Meters are designed for applications that include air compressors efficiency and leak detection, blowers, boiler and burner air and gas fuel feed lines, calciners, clean room air exchange assurance, engines, furnaces, kilns, ovens, paint and sprayer booths, packaging equipment, and plant or campus sub-metering systems.
Providing direct mass flow measurement, the FS10i Series Flow Meters require no additional pressure or temperature sensors or other components to infer flow measurement. Their sealed and no-moving parts sensor does not foul or clog, and requires no routine maintenance that ensures years of trouble-free, continuous operation. Independently evaluated SIL 2 certification as an HFT0 device makes them the optimum choice for safety instrumented system (SIS) critical processes.
Utilizing decades-long, applications-proven thermal dispersion flow sensing technology, the FS10i Flow Meters provide a fluid matched, calibrated and linearized 4-20mA output of flow rate, and a user programmable high or low flow alarm/trip point with a 1A SPDT relay output. For visual indication, the FS10i Flow Meters include a 10-segment LED array. This display illuminates proportionally to the flow rate and flashes if an alarm trip occurs.
