Inline Flow Meter with Analog Current Output (Type 4311.30)
The inline flow-captor type 4311.30 is a flow meter for industrial applications, The small compact unit is self-contained and needs no additional parts. The stainless steel pipe itself, running through the center of the inline flow-captor, is the actual sensor element. According to a calorimetric principle a small part of this pipe is electrically heated, such that it is marginally above the temperature of the medium. This heat flow,.depending on the flow speed of the medium, is measured electronically and provides an output signal linear and proportional to the flow speed.Decisive for compatibility with corrosive media is the material of the pipe. Standard is stainless steel WN 1.4571(V4A, 316 Ti) although other types of metals are available.The inline flow-captor is completely resin encapsulated, thus rugged, shock and vibration proof; for extremely harsh environmental conditions it may be supplied in aluminium housing.
