Every meter shipped by EPI is manufactured in the United States by a team of experienced specialists and goes through an extensive testing and calibration procedure before being signed off. Every effort is made to guarantee that all items are dispatched swiftly, precisely, and safely to your door.
To imitate the circumstances of your process line, our flow calibration specialists use a range of gases. Every EPI flow meter includes a live zero validation that allows you to evaluate the meter calibration within a 2 percent -5 percent tolerance and ten years of technical assistance and remote help from our technical staff to guarantee your meter continues to exceed your expectations.
The Eldridge Products 9800 Series FAT flowmeters performed exactly as described. The MIT Reactor Laboratory installed two redundant probes in the 24-inch square duct that feeds 8000 CFM environmental air to our 150 ft. tall exhaust stack. One probe is centered in a 5 ft. horizontal run, while the other is centered in a 5 ft. vertical run. The vertical section is at the discharge of the blower and turns 90 degrees, which feeds the horizontal section and makes another 90 degree turn up into the stack. The velocity data must be accurate as it is used to calculate radioactive effluents at our reactor in the event of an accident. (which will never happen!) The data from both meters are in agreement despite the vertical meter located close to the blower discharge. I am very happy with our purchase and would recommend them to anyone needing accurate flow measurements in ductwork that may not be a linear run.
The FAT probe at our site is used for a pump and treat system which uses air stripping. We use the air flow meter to measure and achieve a specific air-to-water treatment ratio and we generally have air flows of up to 4,000 SCFM. The flow meter is placed between two treatment units with limited space and has functioned with minimal fluctuation in measurements (±100 SCFM) — We've had a good experience with the FAT probe at our treatment plant.

EPI offers a comprehensive range of thermal equipment for measuring gas flow. Our flow meters and switches are recognized for their exceptional quality, dependability, ease of use, and longevity, thanks to over thirty years of expertise in thermal mass flow metering design and manufacture. You may learn more about what makes EPI unique on our About page.About Us
Our innovative Flow Averaging Tubes™ (FAT) directly calculates mass flow using convective heat transfer and is best suited to most applications with a limited straight run. The upstream straight run can be decreased to three diameters in many systems. Along the length of the upstream impact surface, the probe contains several large diameter entrance openings. The pressure at each entrance port is averaged inside the tube to produce the axial flow through the tube and over our flow sensor. The gas returns to the main flow stream through the ports near the detecting devices. Minor adjustments may be required to attain the best accuracy if there are anomalies in the real flow profile or installations in non-circular ducts.Customize a MeterMore About EPI Technology
Thermal mass flow meters detect mass flow directly using the convective heat transfer theory. Two ratiometrically matched, reference-grade platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are used in EPI's unique thermal mass flow sensors. The platinum sensing element wire is encased in a 316 Stainless Steel sheath or a Hastelloy C sheath if one is required. Our intelligent sensor technology, which is controlled by a microprocessor, preferentially warms one RTD. At the same time, the other serves as a temperature reference. The heat from the first RTD is dissipated by the process gas flow, increasing the power necessary to keep an equilibrium between the RTDs. This rise is proportional to the molecular rate of flow of the gas. Our sensors are temperature adjusted for a wide range of process gas temperatures. As a result, they are unaffected by pressure fluctuations, resulting in a real mass flow rate indication of the output signal.View Full GuideSee Industry Applications
