Master-Touch™ Series 9800MP Flow Meters
MP Series flow meters are approved for use in hazardous locations (see specifications)
Insertion style thermal mass flow meters include a sensor & probe assembly that is inserted into the process gas flow conduit to allow the process gas to flow across the flow inlet tube. Our insertion style flow meters are available with 1/2″, 3/4″, or 1″ OD probes. Tube fittings and ball valve retractor assemblies, with or without a mounting flange, are also available from the factory as options. The tube length is determined by the size of the process pipe. Large ducts or stacks may require multiple averaging tubes to achieve the very best accuracy. For problematic or unique installations, please consult the factory.
Integral style thermal mass flow meters have all of the electrical components and connections located within one enclosure. This enclosure may be rated for either hazardous environments (MP Series) or for ordinary, non-hazardous environments (MPNH Series), as necessary. The enclosure is mounted directly to the inline flow section or to the insertion probe assembly at the point of measurement. The enclosure includes the all of the electrical connections as well as the linearizing electronics and the display/keypad assembly.
Our patented Flow Averaging Tubes™ (FAT™) use the principle of convective heat transfer to directly measure mass flow, and are well suited to most applications with limited available straight run. In many installations, the up-stream straight run can be reduced to three diameters. The probe has a number of large diameter inlet ports along the length of the upstream impact surface. The pressure at each inlet port is averaged inside the tube to create the axial flow through the tube and across our flow sensor. The gas returns to the main flow stream through the ports located near the sensing elements. Anomalies in the actual flow profile or installations in non-circular ducts may still some require minor adjustment to achieve the best accuracy.
