Mass flow meter for air and gases

Compressed air is the most expensive form of energy in production plants! Many companies are not aware of the fact that the generation of compressed air accounts for up to 20% of their overall energy costs. Measurement of compressed air consumption is the first important step towards a cost-conscious handling of expensive compressed air. Detailed knowledge of the actual compressed air consumption can make a significant contribution to reducing energy costs.

Thermal mass flow meters provide the best means of measuring the consumption in compressed air networks. They operate according to the principle of the hot-film anemometer and measure the mass flow or standard volumetric flow irrespective of pressure and temperature.

The mass flow meter can also be used to measure gases like oxygen, nitrogen, CO2, or helium.
