Exair has introduced a new range of hot tap digital flowmeters designed
to simplify installation when compressed air piping is under pressure. The new
compressed air flowmeters eliminate the need to isolate and remove pressure
from the pipe, reducing installation time while maintaining safety.
Hot tap digital flowmeters incorporate two valves that the measuring
probes pass through. A sound muffler that also collects chips from the drilling
process eliminates installation debris from entering the airstream and minimises
noise exposure. Measuring compressed air is the first step towards identifying
high compressed air use areas and compressed air leaks, as well as optimising
Available from Compressed Air Australia, Exair’s hot tap digital
flowmeters are shipped with the necessary hardware and tools for installation
including drill bit, drill guide, chip capturing muffler and hex wrenches. The
Hot Tap feature is available on 2″ (51mm) through 8″ (203mm) flowmeters. They
are available in standard units, which display airflow values on a bright LED
screen, with an optional data logger to capture and manipulate the data, or
with wireless capability to transmit the data securely over a wireless network.
Airflow values are expressed in Standard Cubic Feet per Minute or Cubic Metres
Hot tap digital flowmeters for schedule 40 iron pipe and Type L copper
are now available in 2″ (51mm), 2-_Ó (64mm), 3″ (76mm), 4″ (102mm), 6″ (152mm)
and 8″ (203mm) sizes. They are CE and RoHS compliant and can also be ordered
for schedule 80 or 10S pipes.
