ST75/ST75V Mass Flow Meter

Mass Flow Meter Summary

The ST75 is an accurate, no moving parts, direct mass flow measurement and monitoring solution for fuel gases, air, compressed air, inert and other gas flows within industrial processes. It is available in nine different sizes for direct, in-line installation in line sizes from 1/4 to 2 inch [ 6 to 51mm]. 

By combining precision lithography structured platinum RTD sensors embedded in FCI's equal mass thermowells with microprocessor electronics and precise actual gas calibration, the ST75 achieves outstanding flow measurement performance. Using FCI's proven thermal dispersion technology, the ST75's direct mass flow measurement, eliminates the cost and space of additional sensors required by inferred technologies. With its 100:1 turndown and flow ranges from 0.01 to 559 SCFM [0.01 to 950 NCMH], the ST75 measures over a wide flow range, from low to high flow conditions. The ST75 is available in specific calibrations for most gases including natural gas, methane and other hydrocarbon gases, as well as, nitrogen, CO2, argon and all inert gases, compressed air and more.
