Thermal Gas Mass Flow Meter
Thermal mass flowmeters use the thermal properties of the fluid to measure the flow of a fluid flowing in a pipe or duct. In a typical thermal flowmeter, a measured amount of heat is applied to the heater of the sensor. Some of this heat is lost to the flowing fluid. As flow increases, more heat is lost. The amount of heat lost is sensed using temperature measurement(s) in the sensor. The transmitter uses the heat input and temperature measurements to determine fluid flow. Most thermal flowmeters are used to measure gas flows.
The thermal gas mass flowmeter is a instrument that uses the principle of heat diffusion to measure the flow of gas. The sensor consists of two datum - stage thermal resistors (RTD). One is the speed sensor RH, one is the temperature sensor RMG to measure the temperature change of the gas. When the two RTD is placed in the measured gas, the sensor RH is heated, and the other sensor RMG is used to induce the temperature of the measured gas. As the gas flow rate increases, the air flow takes away more heat, and the temperature of the sensor RH decreases.
They feature no moving parts,
nearly unobstructed straight through flow path, require no temperature
or pressure corrections and retain accuracy over a wide range of flow
rates. Straight pipe runs can be reduced by using dual-plate flow conditioning elements and installation is very simple with minimal pipe intrusions.
