Fluidwell F126-EL Safe area Flow Computer

Robust Intrinsically Safe flow computers for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F126-EL flow computer has been developed to calculate corrected liquid volume at normal conditions. The corrected volumetric flow is calculated by measuring the uncorrected volumetric flow and actual line temperature which is processed with the thermal expansion coefficient algorithm stored in the flow computer. The reference temperature can be defined as desired (e.g. 15°C, 20°C or 60°F).

The display shows the compensated flow rate, total, accumulated total and the actual line temperature. On-screen engineering units like Nm³ are easily configured from a comprehensive selection.
