Flow sensors are developed and produced to measure mass and volume flow rates. These flow rate sensors are capable of promptly recording flows accurately, even the smallest ones. These are applicable in industrial processes, medical and air conditioning technologies.
Thermal mass flow measurement
The thermal measuring principle is applicable in areas where flow rates, even the smallest ones in both the direction, are to be measured with high sensitivity and preciseness. The major components of these sensors are temperature sensitive resistors and heating element. There is a temperature profile in the medium, that allows monitoring of the mass flow rate. The sensor technology is precise and fast that it is even used in medical ventilators for the detection of smallest air flows.
Volume flow rate measurement with Sensors
The pressure sensors in the offering based on the differential pressure procedure, measure the volume flow rate of gases. The minimum drop in pressure on a flow element, like laminar flow element and screen nozzle; is recorded by the sensors. This way volume flow rate is measured. The extremely low differential pressure sensors are designed to accurately and reliably monitor the pressure and volume of the medium that flows through the line simultaneously.
