Compressed Air Flow meter Insertion Type – VA500

Insertion Type Flow meter for Compressed Air and Gases – VA500

The new VA500 Series flow meter operates using the well-proven colorimetric measuring principle. This technology uses a heated sensor which is cooled by the gas flow as it passes and the degree of cooling is dependent upon the mass flow rate of the flow medium. Through precise measurement of the cooling effect a direct mass flow reading can be calculated therefore additional temperature and pressure sensors are not required.

If required, the VA500 can be supplied with its own stainless steel measuring section pipework. This feature provides a higher degree of accuracy as factory calibration of the sensor is carried out with it mounted in its own measuring section.

The VA500 not only calculates and display mass flow rate and total but also provides signal outputs to interface with other process instrumentation. A 4-20mA output linear to instantaneous mass flow rate and a scaled pulse for flow total are available as standard.
