Controlling Compressed Air Costs

Flow Meter Improves Air Compressor System Efficiency

Automation World, July 1, 2014

A flow meter is a cost effective mass flow monitoring solution that is ideal for compressed air flow measurement. It provides precision flow measurement to reduce the consumption of pneumatic air, helping manufacturing, assembly and process plants reduce air consumables and the energy required to support compressed air systems.

The installation of Flow Meters in large facilities with multiple air compressors allows the operators to compare compressor usage and adjust them for optimum efficiencies. Comparing the performance of multiple air compressors is also useful in predictive maintenance applications where higher flow rates may indicate leaking valves or seals in one unit versus other units operating under similar conditions.

Flow meters provide an accurate, fast response and no-maintenance solution for compressed air, gas and nitrogen flow measurement.
