Considerations and Solutions for Applying FCI ST80 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meters in Wet Gas or Open Stack/Rain Down Installations
As a leading innovator in the design of thermal mass flow meter technology and best application practices, FCI continues to develop solutions that address the most challenging customer requirements. The latest of these developments is the Wet Gas MASSter for the ST80 Series flow meters. This mechanical design shunts moisture, condensation and water droplets away from the thermal sensor, thus maintaining an accurate gas flow measurement while minimizing errors that occur from a cooling effect on the sensor that could cause a spike or false high reading. The Wet Gas MASSter can be used in applications that either have moisture entrained in the gas (annular mist) or for protection against rain in larger, vertical stacks.
