GF90 Gas Mass Flow Meter, Wide-Turndown, High Feature
Gas Mass Flow Meter SummaryThe GF90 insertion type gas mass flow
meter combines FCI's highly reliable thermal dispersion, no-moving
parts flow element design with an advanced microprocessor-based
programmable transmitter in a rugged 316 stainless steel nickel
The GF90 is a heavy duty industrial gas mass flow meter that offers
a wide turndown range of 1000:1, up to 3 different gas calibration
groups in operating process temperatures up to 850° F [454° C] and
is ideal for a wide range of applications including hazardous
Combustion air to boilers and furnaces
Hydrogen make-up gas
